  1. Hi All, I am running a course with Cumbria Woodlands on Bats and Trees, this December. It's targeted at Arbs and Woodland Managers etc and aims to show people how to risk assess trees for bats when undertaking tree surveys or pre-felling checks. We cover; where bats live, what to look for, how to rule features out, how you'd know if a bat was using a tree and what to do if you do encounter bats. It will be held in South Cumbria, within easy reach of the M6, and is only one day long. At the end you get a CPD certificate. You can find the rest of the details here Bats and Trees | Courses & Events | Cumbria Woodlands Cheers, Rich
  2. Cumbria Woodlands are offering a subsidised course on Bats and Trees. It's a one day course, held in the south of Cumbria (but not too far from the motorway) and looks to address the issues of risk assessing trees for bats. You'll look at the types of features bats use, as well as how to identify potential roosts and how to rule bats out. It's aimed at Arbs, and Woodland Managers/Practitioners who may encounter bat roosts or need to make an assessment of a potential roost tree prior to felling. You can find the details here: Bats and Trees | Courses & Events | Cumbria Woodlands ---------------------------------------------- Mods: Please remove this is you deem it to be unacceptable. However, it is genuinely relevant to Trees and the Law in the UK, and may be of interest to some ArbTalkers. Cheers, Rich
