Arboriculture and bats: scoping surveys for arborists

This basic awareness course, developed by the Bat Conservation Trust and supported by the Arboricultural Association, is aimed at arborists, and will help them to carry out tree works with consideration of the potential effects on bats and their habitats.

The course counts towards Arboricultural Association CPD requirements and participants will receive a Lantra awards attendance certificate. Please note this is a basic awareness course – it will not give arborists the knowledge or skills to carry out full bat surveys.   This course is inline with the British Standard 8596 – Surveying for bats in trees and woodland.
