Codominant Stem Failure - Research - 2nd Apr 2013

Your chance to help

Dr Tom Smiley of Bartlett Tree Research Lab is conducting a survey of arborists to help identify tree species that are susceptible to codominant stems.

The term ‘codominant stems’ is used to describe two or more main stems (or leaders) that are about the same diameter and emerge from the same location on the main trunk. Codominant stems tend to fail more often than other stems, especially during storm conditions.

This survey is designed to help formulate a global picture of tree species that have codominant stems and therefore may have a higher potential failure risk.

If you are familiar with tree species that are prone to developing codominant stems then click the link and fill in the survey, it’s only five questions so it will not take long.
