UA2.1

Tree Species Recognition, Growth Characteristics and Associated Hazards

 

An interesting course that is delivered in a combination of both field and classroom. This course builds basic tree knowledge, giving the candidate the right skills to be able to identify common species of tree, know the associated growth rates and the typical timber characteristics of those species.

 

We also cover basic hazard recognition. Candidates will learn to spot potentially dangerous trees through understanding pests, diseases and the biomechanics of trees, and how they function as living organisms.

 

Pre-requisites: UA1

 

  • Identify tree species
  • Identify growth characteristics
  • Identify hazardous trees and branches

UA 2.1 Assessments

The one-day course is followed by a half day assessment. Assessment only options are available for candidates that have the necessary training, experience and skills in place to be able to meet the requirements of the assessment.
