How is this a wind up?

 

I am not a tree expert by any means.

 

I have a tree I am concerned about.

 

If i leave it and it falls then that is an issue.

 

If i get an unqualified person to look at it they say its fine then it falls its an issue.

 

I looked online and found varying tree services and qualifications.

 

So I came here to ask what qualifications to look for and where to find an appropriately qualified person.

If you stop avoiding the questions & give more details & pictures rather than vague statements  you will get better help.

Just get in touch with Ben at Canopy who supplied his contact details.

He’s a good qualified guy and is not far from you.

As mentioned have contacted Ben at Canopy.

 

Also I am only asking for advice on qualifications to look for and where to find someone.

 

Sorry to anyone if they think anything else.

 

Really just want to get advice on what qualifications to look for and where to find someone.

The types of qualifications to look out for are ND, level 4, HND, level 6, BSc, MSc, or, Lantra PTI, in arboriculture. Could also check for professional membership of Arboriculture Association or Chartered Institute of Foresters.  
More  important to check that chosen expert has professional indemnity insurance to cover giving the advice you require. 

Both AA and ICF list members by area.  

I think JSN posted that 2 hours ago

I really appreciate JSN and thanked them. 

 

However it was a long list of qualifications and I am still wanting to know anyone in my area.

 

Sorry to have bothered you all. 

 

Thanks very much to Daltontrees Benedmonds - have sent you message and again JSN also Stevebullman

 

Will go back to the search. Using your valuable advice as a guide.

You could ask your Local Authority Tree Officer to recommend someone
