A one-day course due to be held at SAC’s Ayr Campus (Auchincruive)
will help land managers assess whether any trees on their land
pose a risk to safety.
Land managers with trees adjacent to highways or who encourage
public access onto their land have a duty of care to ensure that
reasonable steps are taken to reduce the risks posed by their trees
to an acceptable level.
Places are still available on this accredited
Basic Tree Survey course which is due to start on Monday 8 October.
For those unable to attend the course there are further opportunities
to check out whether or not their trees are safe - through SAC’s
Arboriculture Services. For further information this service or the
training course, contact SAC Arboriculture Services on 01555 662562
