DescriptionFor efficient control of tree hazard on recreation sites, a specific administrative goal must be selected. A safety standard designed to achieve the selected goal and a uniform hazard-rating procedure will then promote a consistent level of safety at an acceptable cost. Safety standards can be established with the aid of data for past years, and dollar evaluations are feasible. Cost optimization is possible but impractical with available data. The legal risk in adoption of safety standards is considered acceptable.
