Basic Tree Survey and Inspection
Lantra 1-day ITA Basic Tree Survey and Inspection
We offer the Lantra one day Basic Tree Survey and Inspection Training Course. This provides learners with the knowledge to be able to identify a hazardous tree, determine the level of risk and then decide on an appropriate course of action.
This course is aimed at a wide group of people, for example you could be employed as a local authority highway inspector, or work in the forestry, woodland or arboricultural field. You could be a park ranger, or work on an estate, it may be that you are a farmer or other type of landowner; it could be that you are an employee who has the responsibility for trees in the course of their work. Additionally our course could be useful if you work with trees in a voluntary capacity.
Although this training course is mostly classroom based, trainees will be expected to be able to look at a range of trees outside to develop some of the ideas discussed in the classroom.
The Lantra objectives for this course are as follows:
- State the legal and safety implications of hazardous trees.
- Maintain your own health and safety while carrying out Basic Tree Survey and Inspection.

- Determine level of risk.
- Decide on an appropriate course of action.
