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.
There are no current planned courses, please contact us for more details.
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.
