Identifying hazardous trees is a vital part of ensuring our highways stay safe. Our training is designed to help you recognise and report issues to an appropriate expert.

This course is aimed at highway personnel, to enable them to inspect highway trees for obvious defects.

By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  • Identify obvious defects by visual inspection of the trees from ground level with the aid of binoculars, mallet and a probe (this may include an initial inspection by drive-by)
  • Record defects and place the tree in a broad category of risk rating
  • Identify the required action upon finding a tree with an obvious defect

This is an assessed training course. You will receive a certificate of competence once completed.

This course is for those who are already working, or are looking to work, in the highway network. The course is classroom-based with a practical assessment activity.

Please note, if you have mobility problems or a medical condition that could have an impact on your health and safety, please let us know prior to the course.

This one day course will enable you to identify potential tree hazards on the highway network.
