  3. Technical Guide 3 – Rigging and Dismantling: Industry Consultation launched We want your feedback Closing date: 14th October 2021 Consultation Survey View TG3 Draft The Association is launching an Industry Consultation on Technical Guide 3: Rigging and Dismantling, which will run for four weeks. This is the final guide in the suite of five technical guides, following the publication of TG1, TG2, TG4, and TG5 last year. The development of TG3 has involved many individuals in the industry and draws on the HSE-Commissioned ‘Rigging Research’ to provide an accessible, practical and technically informative guide to the planning and implementation of rigging techniques in tree work. The guide is very well illustrated with many drawings, photos, graphs and diagrams, to help managers, supervisors and arborists carry out safe and effective rigging and dismantling, working within calculated safe working parameters and peak load limits. Please download links to the consultation draft and a simple ‘survey monkey’ questionnaire to provide your feedback. Please note all survey responses must be received by 14th October 2021.

  10. Why hedge trees and hedgerows matter With The Tree Council Live at 6pm on Sunday Register Here Presented by Jon Stokes, Director of Trees, Science & Research at The Tree Council. Hedgerows are an undervalued resource that are in danger of being lost from our towns and cities. They are important for biodiversity and provide a range of benefits to people.
