The Institute of Australian Consulting Arboriculturists presented a workshop for arboricultural professionals on Friday 12 August 2016, with the aim of reaching some consensus on how, when and where we map roots, and minimum requirements for reporting. The full day workshop covered up to date science and technology for root mapping applications, and real world case studies from the recent work of consulting arboriculturists as well as local government experiences and requirements, and great discussions amongst the 50 or so professionals present.

The event was well attended by IACA members, other consulting arborists, and local government tree managers, and feedback is that the attendees found the information very useful and educational.

Thanks to everyone who attended and a huge thank you to our volunteer speakers whose contributions made the day so valuable.

Copies of the presenters' slides will be available to members soon, in the members' section of the IACA website.
