BS3998: Recommendations for tree work

A revised draft of BS 3998 Recommendations for tree work has been released for public consultation by the BSI.

BS3998 was last updated in 1989 and is widely considered long overdue for update. The revised draft covers a wide range of issues related to carrying out tree work, including specifying work, risk management on work sites, crown management and structural support.

Public consultation lasts until 31 October 2008. The draft can be viewed and commented upon from the British Standards Institute's Draft Review System at A PDF version of the draft is available from the UK Tree Care mailing lists's shared document area.
