    Description

    A data management system has been developed for storage and retrieval of tree failure and hazard data, with provision for computer analyses and presentation of results in useful tables. This system emphasizes important relationships between tree characteristics, environmental factors, and the resulting hazard. The analysis programs permit easy selection of subsets of data for examination of individual species, sites, and other categories of information. Use of this system allows site managers to control hazard at lower cost to both the site and the budget.
