Cost: Members £54.00 | Non-members £78.00
In this presentation, Jeremy will report a summary of the current situation in the UK in respect of highway tree inspections, and offer his interpretation of what the standard of duty of care is likely to look like in the future - having made a Freedom of Information request to all the UK highway authorities asking for information on tree failure related fatalities and injuries, tree risk management strategies, tree inspection protocols, and training programmes. It is anticipated that, when published in 2019, this data could form the basis for designing a “clear, detailed guidance” on highway tree inspections.
Jeremy Barrell is the Managing Director of Barrell Tree Consultancy, one of Britain’s leading planning and legal tree management practices. He has been involved in six of the 11 civil cases relating to harm arising from tree failures that have resulted in written judgments in the last two decades.
After lunch Jeremy will take delegates on a walk around of the beautiful gardens to have some open discussions about Tree Risk in live situations.
