Not Sure?

 

Why not sample the goods and have a play on the App first. Email admin@validtreerisk.com, and let me know whether you’re using iOS or Android, or both.

Wow. Tell us more- is this a must-have in PTI toolbox? K

Hi Khriss

 

That’s an interesting heart of the matter question. Without getting into the whole how can you inspect a tree but not assess the risk PTI conundrum.  Perhaps this ‘What is VALID?’ one-sider might help.

Hi Khriss

 

The AA aren’t involved.  I’m setting up VALID as non-profit and it’s an international venture.  To give you a taste of where things are heading.  In April I was out in Tasmania helping their government look at managing tree risk on their highways following a coronial inquest into a death caused by a tree failing.  On the back of that, I ran an in-house course for Inner West City Council in Sydney.  New Zealand Transport Authority are also interested.

 

You get 15hrs of CPD.

 

Cheers

Hi Kevin

 

Good to hear from you - it's been a while since you came along to the QTRA training I ran down there.  Hopefully, you can make it because I think you'll very much like what I've done with VALID.

 

Cheers

Cheers Mark, and look forward to seeing you there.

 

BTW, the News* page of VALID's website is now public.  There's a subscribe ‘widget’ on there for anyone who can’t make this round of training and would like to know about the next; in the UK, or anywhere else in the world.  Or if you just want to hear an occasional, short, tasty dispatch from what’s happening at the coalface of tree risk-benefit assessment and management.

 

Cheers
