Hello, Would like your opinion on the above. Do you use any Tree Risk Assessment forms in your line of work? Our Tree Team (I work for Local Authority) may be looking into starting using tree risk assessment forms when issuing fells to highway trees. We have been asked by members of the public to provide a "report" when they question our decision. Anyhow, would you say ISA's form is a standard in UK or is there another type of tree risk assessment form that is more frequently used? Do you use an electronic version? We use tablets with specialist software when inspecting street and park trees so electronic version would help. Carrying paper forms would be a total ball-ache. I have asked our software supplier if they could develop the existing system to incorporate ISA's Tree Risk Assessment Form, but was told there are too many tree risk assessment forms (implied ISA's is not the standard form). What is your opinion? What do you use? Thank you. Regards, B PS: Apologies if I'm repeating a subject, but I tried to search the forum for this topic, but gave up the search at posts dated January this year...
Afternoon Wondering if anyone has any info on the benefits of taking the Professional Tree Inspectors Course? I took the course many years ago and really enjoyed it and have recommended it to all I meet who are considering it. However I now have a team of my own who I would like to send on it for their benefit but I now have to put a business case together to justify the expenditure for 4 members of staff. My staff already have level 4 arb qualifications or higher and have plenty of arb experience to back it up. So will the Professional Tree Inspection Course trump their existing knowledge? Will the company's insurance improve if they take the course? What is actually gained from a company's point of view or is it purely individual professional 'glory'? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Cheers Craig
Dear all, We have places available on our next Lantra Professional Tree Inspection. The three-day course aims to provide specific tree inspection training at an advanced level for competent arboriculturists to enable them to identify defects. At the end of the course candidates will undertake a competence based assessment directly related to tree inspection. The course is not aimed at covering report writing; however, presentation of findings will be examined and advice given. Course objectives · Recognise the role of the tree inspector in risk management. · Identify the legal framework in the context of statute and common law that affect tree inspection and the duties and liabilities of the owner, manager and inspector. · Summarise how a tree system functions · Adopt a systematic and consistent methodology for carrying out visual tree inspection at an advanced level with the aid of binoculars, mallet and probe. · Collect data out in the field in accordance with the inspection instructions. (For this course a written survey template with appropriate headings will be used). · Recognise a range of observable mechanical and biological defects as seen in trees and confirm by the use of textbooks where necessary. · Identify a range of commonly seen pests, diseases and disorders that affect tree safety · State the appropriate control/remedial measures required to eliminate or reduce risks identified. Determine when an aerial inspection is required, also if pro-active management recommendations can be made which may eliminate future defects from forming. · Prioritise the necessary tree/management works with time scales based on a broad category of risk assessment. · Identify when it is appropriate to recommend the use of decay detecting or measuring equipment, based on a basic knowledge of the working principles of commonly available equipment.
