The Arboricultural Association and Ancient Tree Forum are representing the UK in a new European project focusing on veteran trees.
Feedback from professionals in the field is critical to provide valuable background information about veteran trees, challenges faced, feedback in relation to the knowledge and experience required to manage the trees in the different countries or regions.
The project, VETcert, involves ten partners from seven European countries and aims to develop a Europe wide accreditation scheme for those working on these types of trees.
As part of the standard setting stage of the project, the AA and ATF are seeking the views of stakeholders within the UK regarding the minimum requirements for those working on veteran trees. This short questionnaire has been produced to collect this information.
The survey closes on 30 April 2017 and can be taken here
