    Elevated Office Podcast - S2E16 - Ideas For Mitigating Arborist Liabilities With Levi Conrad Part1

    Elevated Office Podcast - S2E16 - Ideas For Mitigating Arborist Liabilities With Levi Conrad Part1

    What a lot of contract Tree Climbers, Arborists, and even Tree Service owners don't realize, is just how much potential liability we can have brought against us in our professions. Some of it may be due to poor decisions or poor tree care practices. Another part of the liability is, what we notice, or don't notice, and what we tell, or document for the clients. 
    In part one of this Elevated Office Podcast episode, Levi Conrad and I go over a few ideas that may help you to re-evaluate your methods to prevent future liabilities.
    Levi Conrad Biography:
    Levi is a consulting arborist and former owner of Levi Conrad Professional Tree Care. Levi works primarily as a subject matter expert in matters that involve trees and electrical lines. Levi is an ISA Certified Arborist, ISA utility specialist, CTSP, and is TRAQ qualified.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    DISCLAIMER: 
    Levi Conrad, nor myself claim to know the legal regulations or statutes. Nor do either of us claim to have answers to keep you out of liability issues. We hope that these episodes will help you think about your decisions as a Tree Profession so that we can all have long, and profitable careers.

    Elevated Office Podcast - S2E15 - How I Climb: Silky Zubat Polesaw

    Elevated Office Podcast - S2E15 - How I Climb: Silky Zubat Polesaw

    Somewhat frequently, I'm asked about my style of Tree climbing. I actually find it a bit difficult to explain during a conversation, instead of video. So, to make it easier for me to explain my style and method of climbing, I've decided to break down my Tree climbing techniques and methods into smaller topics. Todays Elevated Office Podcast episode talks about how I use my Silky Zubat Pole Saw in my climbing for production tree work.

    Elevated Office Podcast - S2E14 - Drawing The Moral Line For Tree Work

    As an Arborist, are you considering where to draw the Ethical and Moral Line of Tree work that you are willing to do? If so, where are you drawing the lines? 
    If you don't understand what Ethical lines exist in the Arborist's world, then you will be introduced to a few situations that need to be carefully considered before you decide to proceed, or if you need to simply refuse to do the job.

    Elevated Office Podcast - S2E13 - Are You Planning For Injury

    In an industry like Arborist work, Tree Climbing, and hazard storm damage, there is always a good chance that we can get injured. This is only multiplied by the fact that most of us are active people in our recreational time. As I recently wrecked my dirt bike, and broke my arm at the shoulder socket, it really made me think about how many of us are planning for unexpected injuries that we may receive while, on the job, or off. In this episode, I talk about some of things you might want to keep in mind, and what options you might want to explore to prepare for major injuries that may put us out of work for sometime.
