VETcert is an EU funded project that aims to harmonise skills and knowledge recognition in veteran tree management across Europe.
This Erasmus+ funded project brings together seven partners from ten European countries, including the UK, Sweden, Belgium, Spain, France, Czech Republic and Germany; the UK being represented by the Ancient Tree Forum and the Arboricultural Association.
The project objectives are:
- Recognise skills and knowledge in veteran tree management.
- Define minimum skills and knowledge at two operational levels: practicing and consulting tree work professionals.
- Increase the opportunities for tree work professionals across Europe.
- Raise standards in veteran tree management across Europe.
The project runs from December 2016 to October 2019, afterwhich time the certification scheme will be available for entry.
