As an experienced arboriculturalist our instructor Neil Smith has a longstanding passion for the effective management of trees. Having gained his Professional Tree Inspection qualification some years ago, he has used his extensive knowledge to asses the condition of trees and provide detailed management plans both in his own business prior to becoming an instructor and here at VMT.
Professional Tree inspection reports may be requested to comply with risk assessments and duty of care requirements and as such, it is vital that the professional undertaking the survey has a thorough knowledge of risks associted with both the individual species and the surrounding vegetation and built environment.
The Professional Tree Inspection Course is a three day input,allowing experienced arboriculturalists to build on their already extensive knowledge of tree species, defects, risk factors and management plans in preperation for the integrated assessment at the end of the sessions.
Gaining the qualifcation proves competance to enable the inspector to carry out detailed assessments of trees and devise a management plan to meet the requirements of BS3998:2010.
