Tutor: Dr Jon Heuch

Length: 1 day

About the Course

This course is for arborists experienced in inspecting trees and writing reports for clients on their structural and health condition. It builds upon that experience to equip an arboricultural consultant writing reports when the tree is on a property, near a building, road or other target. A report template is provided as part of the course. It will also include how trees/vegetation can contribute to subsidence, and how to mitigate. (If you are involved with cases where subsidence is happening or may have occured, separate training is recommended).
