Tree Survey Course
The basic tree survey and inspection course from H&W is a non assessed course, suitable for people seeking work in commercial forestry, amenity and/or utility arboriculture, for example arborists, tree surgeons and employees of highways agencies and country estates.
The course is delivered in a training room environment by LANTRA qualified instructors, with some practical exercises included.
- State the legal and safety implications of hazardous trees
- Maintain your own health and safety while carrying out the survey and inspection
- Recognise hazardous trees
- Determine level of risk
- Decide on an appropriate course of action
- Collect and maintain adequate information
- Recognise your own limitations
- Tree inspection should be carried out by an experienced and qualified arborist. The inspection process involves all aspects of the tree from roots up to branch tips.
- Additionally, any target hazard needs to be identified and considered, for example it may be that the tree is located within a woodland area and that certain defects that would be unacceptable on a road side tree are acceptable on a woodland tree.
- To reduce the possibilities of such situations it is recommended that tree owners obtain an annual condition survey of their trees by a qualified arborist.
