On Thursday April 2nd, PTS helped to lead a Tree Worker Safety Workshop in Frisco Texas. Sponsored by the Trinity Blacklands Urban Forestry Council (TBUFC), the training event was attended by approximately 120 professionals from around DFW. PTS’s own Kenneth Smith, a certified arborist and certified tree climber specialist, led three groups in a discussion about overall tree worker safety from the ground up. Long time climber and PTS employee, Santos Zentino, helped to demonstrate proper climbing safety and crownthinning techniques as well.
