    Emergency First Aid at Work in Surrey

    Do you need to update your First Aid training? We're offering an 'Emergency First Aid at Work' course on Monday 1 July in Guildford, Surrey. This course is designed for land-based professionals, meets HSE requirements and is valid for three years. It also includes additional topics for arborists, as recommended by the Forestry Commission. Apply online today! - https://www.merristwood.ac.uk/…/Arboriculture%20&%20Forestry
  2. 'Fungi and the Management of Trees of All Ages' - delivered by industry expert Jack Kenyon. Two day short course on Thursday 19 April and Friday 20 April, from 9am - 5pm Course fee - £225 (includes a buffet lunch) For more information and to apply, visit - www.merristwood.ac.uk Day 1 - Thursday 19 April A tree is a colony of organisms - some may be hostile, but others are friendly and essential for health, energy reserves and survival. It is estimated there are at least 5 million species of fungi, but only about 100,000 so far are described. You will look at: How some fungi can colonise the wood and compromise the structural integrity of the tree, whilst others can form symbiotic fungal associations with the tree which are essential for the survival of both organisms. How trees use biological defence mechanisms to resist colonisation by micro-organisms, and use processes to limit decay. How the seasonal phenological cycle can cause implications for tree management in terms of what is done, when work is carried out and how much work is appropriate. How trees have extraordinary capabilities of performing complex information processing. Traditionally trees and plants have been thought to be passive, however there is clear evidence of trees being able to identify animals and insects, and distinguish friendly associates from hostile herbivores. How trees use biogenic volatile organic compound chemicals (VOCs) to attract predators of hostile insects, and communicate with each other. Day 2 - Friday 20 April A tree’s life span can be extremely long with some thought to be more than 130,000 years old. The purpose of visual tree assessment is to recognise features which may indicate compromised structural integrity. You will look at: The assessment of decay and reaction wood growth responses, in terms of hazard and risk management, and remedial and preventative maintenance. The evaluation of methods used for internal investigation of trees, sound equipment, micro drills and other approaches such as winch pull tests. Risk management in respect of quantifying risk by probability or foreseeability. The morphology of veteran and ancient trees, considering the process of reiteration in older trees such as new adaptive or traumatic growths which become copies of the parent tree.

  14. Hello All, I am currently working on a self employed basis for a fencing company. For a while now I have felt that I would like to become a tree surgeon. I am due to complete CS30/31 at the start of next month which has taken me a while to save up for. Is anybody aware of any entry level-online qualifications that I can complete while I am still in full time work? I know there are college courses available out there but if I could work full time for a tree surgeon and learn the theoretical side of Arboriculture then this would suit me much better. Also if you feel that it would be better to go back to college instead of completing a course online please let me know. Thanks Luke
  15. Hi all, I am working on a new website aimed at children ages 4 to 11 which will provide education about forests etc. I am fully aware that the FC and woodland trust do a similar thing but I want to create my own with the help of others. And then get local contacts for the areas. I am looking for any ideas, input etc. and also volunteers to help keep the site running. All you need is a bit of spare time and access to the internet. No web design skills required. Full credit will be given to any work etc. A few people have already contacted me from ArbTalk and this is great, maybe some more of you will get involved. I dont think I can post the website address on here but if you want it, PM me. Nothing much online at the moment apart from a form where you can register for updates. I plan to have the site up and running in the summer. I hope this project does work out well as far too many kids these days would rather sit on the Xbox 360 or their i-phones than go out and play with twigs and cones!! And also hope to cover ages 11+ at a later date. Sponsorship so far will be from Shell UK & Adventure Forest Ltd Any firms out there want to sponsor the site?? Anyone who would like to get involved should PM me or email me: crowmere@live.co.uk Thank you for your time, Lee:001_smile:
