VETcert multiplier event
The Ancient Tree Forum’s Training and Technical Officers, Helen Read and Jim Mullholland ran a ‘multiplier event’ as part of the VETcert project at Burnham Beeches on 13th February 2019.
The purpose of the event was to engage with a range of individuals and organisations who procure veteran tree management services. Representatives attended from a range of organisations including Natural England, Woodland Trust, National Trust, City of London, Historic England, Forestry England, Peoples Trust for Endangered Species, English Heritage, Arboricultural Association, The Royal Parks, Institute of Chartered Foresters, ProArb, Office of Public Works (Ireland) and Tracy Clarke Consultancy.
Attendees were informed about the progress of the project so far and asked for input and ideas of how to gain support for the certification scheme once it is ready to be rolled out.
Thank you to all who came, we look forward to working with you all in the near future.
VETcert is an Erasmus+ funded project that aims to harmonise skills and knowledge recognition in veteran tree management across Europe. More information can be found on the VETcert webpage: www.vetcert.eu
