Veteran Tree Management Course

The National Trust is hosting the Veteran Tree Management Course.The course will provide you with the necessary toolkit to effectively manage your veteran tree population. Hatfield Forest is the perfect case study due to its long term, consistent approach to pioneering ‘environmental’ arboriculture (Fay, 2002). Using a mixture of classroom and outdoor sessions, Day One will provide the background knowledge surrounding the management of veteran trees, the ageing process, surveys, practical techniques for conservation and considerations when using contractors.

During Day Two you will get to see demonstrations of work being carried out on some veteran trees. The final session will summarise the morning’s work and also discuss how this type of arboriculture can be put into practice at your own site.

Course Costs: £260 excl. VAT
