Veteranisation of Young Trees

Managing for deadwood habitat in living trees – a comprehensive one day course for countryside managers, arborists, rangers and advisors. This course is designed for those managing sites where there is an age gap between the old trees and the next generation. The course will take you through the theory as well as demonstrating some of the pioneering practical techniques to encourage faster development of habitat in younger trees.

This one-day course will run on 21st November and again on 22nd November.

    I like the sound of this course but too far away to attend. Are there any plans to do it again in Scotland?

      From the Woodland Trust: there are no plans to do so currently but it will be highlighted to their Scotland team that there would be interest. It is running in Sherwood to support the development of a landscape scale project there centred around the management of ancient trees and deadwood habitat at a landscape scale.

    Hi, As LANTRA instructor, NPTC Assessor and AFAG board member, please please, take care when using photos, to my eye this looks to be a posed shot for the camera, but we have a climber, using a saw very high, tip in for a kick back to the neck and climbing line, with out eye protection or hearing protection. Not good safety message to send out. If ever you have any photos you would like me to run an eye over I am more than happy to do so, to help the ATF. Any help you need with safety or training on these practical course let me know.

    Cheers Alex

      Hi Alex

      Thank you for your comments and offer of help in this area. I can see how the photo can be misinterpreted and your comments are very valid. Others have also made the same point. In this case, the Woodland Trust have clarified that “the chainsaw is not switched on. The arborist is talking to a group and showing and describing the process of cuts and answering questions. Please be assured that we follow full safety procedures when undertaking the work.”
