Dear all,

 We have places available on our next Lantra Professional Tree Inspection.

The three-day course aims to provide specific tree inspection training at an advanced level for competent arboriculturists to enable them to identify defects. At the end of the course candidates will undertake a competence based assessment directly related to tree inspection. The course is not aimed at covering report writing; however, presentation of findings will be examined and advice given.

 Course objectives

 · Recognise the role of the tree inspector in risk management.

 · Identify the legal framework in the context of statute and common law that affect tree inspection and the duties and liabilities of the owner, manager and inspector.

 · Summarise how a tree system functions

 · Adopt a systematic and consistent methodology for carrying out visual tree inspection at an advanced level with the aid of binoculars, mallet and probe.

 · Collect data out in the field in accordance with the inspection instructions. (For this course a written survey template with appropriate headings will be used).

 · Recognise a range of observable mechanical and biological defects as seen in trees and confirm by the use of textbooks where necessary.

 · Identify a range of commonly seen pests, diseases and disorders that affect tree safety

 · State the appropriate control/remedial measures required to eliminate or reduce

risks identified.

 Determine when an aerial inspection is required, also if pro-active management recommendations can be made which may eliminate future defects from forming.

 · Prioritise the necessary tree/management works with time scales based on a broad category of risk assessment.

 · Identify when it is appropriate to recommend the use of decay detecting or measuring equipment, based on a basic knowledge of the working principles of commonly available equipment.

Start Date Wednesday 20th June to Friday 22nd June 2018

 Cost  £500
