Advice for Tree Managers

Arboriculture is a constantly developing field where practitioners and consultants need to be conversant with new developments to ensure best practice.

In a litigious society, tree owners and those who advise on trees need to ensure that they fulfil obligations for duty of care. Arborists need to be fully aware that an understanding the habitat value of trees is fundamental to responsible tree management.
