ArborViews specialises in Tree Risk Assessment. Whilst all AQF level 5 arborists should have a reasonable understanding of Tree Risk Assessment, it is a specialist area.
Ian McKenzie is one of the first arborists from Australia to attain the new International Society of Arboriculture (ISA) Tree Risk Assessment Qualification (2013). This is the first time that there has ever been a specific qualification in tree risk assessment, and ISA ensures that people who attain the Tree Risk Assessment Qualification have a thorough knowledge and the necessary skills to assess trees for risk.
Ian has also undergone workshops in Qualified Tree Risk Assessment (QTRA), initially in 2006, with update workshops in 2007 and 2013. He has been a licenced and regular user of QTRA since 2006.
In addition to the specific tree risk assessment training and experience, Ian has 25 years experience as an arborist, consulting as well as working in local government. He has AQF level 5 and level 6 qualifications in arboriculture and has recently completed the Graduate Certificate in Arboriculture (AQF level 8) at the University of Melbourne. An AQF level 5 qualification is recognised by the NSW Land and Environment Court and most local governments as the minimum qualification to undertake tree assessment and provide reports.
ArborViews is experienced in tree risk assessment in schools.
ArborViews holds $5 million professional indemnity insurance.
