Live life in the fast lane, with our Highway Tree Inspection course.
Identifying hazardous trees is a vital part of ensuring our highways stay safe. Our training is designed to help you recognise and then report issues to an appropriate expert.
It's a one-day course with assessment that will give you the knowledge to be able to identify potential hazards on the highway network.
Highway Tree inspection is aimed at highway personnel, to enable them to inspect highway trees for obvious defects.
By the end of the course, you will be able to:
- Identify obvious defects by visual inspection of the trees from ground level with the aid of binoculars, mallet and a probe: this may include an initial inspection by drive-by
- Record defects and place the tree in a broad category of risk rating
- Identify the required action upon finding a tree with an obvious defect.
