The industry-led Register of Tree Work Operatives, known as R2, will be launched at next month's Arb Show 2015 at the National Arboretum, Westonbirt, Gloucestershire.

This register will enable arboriculturists to demonstrate their skill and experience levels, and help businesses identify which operatives have the required skills to undertake varying types of tree work.

It will be demonstrated at sponsor Makita's stand (T2), and operatives can sign up on the day for an annual fee of £30, or less for employers with a number of employee registrations.

Those registering during the show and up to the end of June will have a chance to win a Makita EA5000-P45D 50cc chainsaw worth over £600, while those signing up at the show will also receive a free co-branded t-shirt.

Registrations can also be made online at www.r2register.co.uk.

The project is coordinated by a steering committee consisting of the Arboricultural Association, International Society of Arboriculture UK and Ireland Chapter, Glendale Countryside, Bartlett Tree Experts, A M Lane, Landex Colleges, Western Power Distribution, Makita UK and Lantra, and chaired by Jaime Bray of Treetop Arboriculture.
