Lantra Highway Tree Inspection

Who is this for?

Identifying hazardous trees is a vital part of ensuring our highways stay safe. This Lantra training course is designed to help you recognise and then report issues to an appropriate expert. It’s a one-day course with assessment that will give you the knowledge to be able to identify potential hazards on the highway network.

This course is for people who are already working in, or are looking to work in, the highway network; Highway Tree inspection is aimed at highway personnel, to enable them to inspect highway trees for obvious defects.
