North west BSI tree seminar on 7 April

On 7 April at Chipping Village Hall in Lancashire the tree contractors and tree officers of the North West are gathering for a briefing on the New British Standard 3998 (2010) which has just been released and updates the standards required for good tree work when set more than 20 years ago.

The briefing meeting at Chipping will be run by Dominic Scanlon of Aspect Tree Consultancy and Paul Smith of the Arboricultural Association and will concentrate on how the new standards will affect contractors and how tree officers can use the new standard to improve the quality of tree work, tree retention and new planting.

The course has been organised by Paul Bullimore of Lancashire County Council's Landscape Section in conjunction with Ken Linford, an Arboricultural Association representative in the North West.  The course fee is £50 plus VAT and is open to all.

In addition the British Standards institute have agreed that all course attendees can obtain a copy of the BS 3998 at half price.
