As a contractor i would welcome such a forum, however as a solution i
think 
that this has a fundamental flaw. The contractors and climbers who are 
responsible for this type of sub standard work are the least likely to
be 
involved in any education or communication process.
I sugest that you try and contact the major culprits and offer a stern 
warning and even offer sources of information. Being threatened with any

kind of action will wake them up. By the time you have sent a few of
these 
out it will, by word of mouth probably make a few waves. hopefully
causing 
an upturn in standards.

How about running a bi annual Tree surgeons forum and
having a session on interpeting specs and trees and
the law?

We seem to be suffering a serious decline in pruning
standards to TPO
trees - it doesn't help that our own contracted out
grounds maintenance
are equally guilty. I'm sure you are aware that the
same specification
can be interpreted well or appallingly by two
different contractors.
Although, the consents we send out say that all work
must be carried out
to BS3998, the chances of succeeding with punitive
action if it is not
seem very slight to negligible. Has anybody any
suggestions how we can
improve the situation? We do not offer any grants
and we do not, and do
not intend to, operate an approved contractors list
- again, it doesn't
help that some of the appalling work is being done
by an AAAC.
