Oh I don't know Rodger, I think things are improving slowly. I'm pretty sure 
that the AA Approved Contractor assessment covers biosecurity and we've had a 
number of workshops in the SE that have centred on the need for good 
biosecurity practices in order to slow the spread of Chalara. Also the FC 
have had stands at all the major shows in the SE this year (shared with the 
AA SE Branch at the South of England Show and the Weald Wood Fair), where ash 
dieback control and disease resilience has been at the forefront of their 
message and the AA's.

But, it's the responsibility of us all and not just the professional bodies.

Quite. That’s why we are clueless in the UK about Plant Health Care. Doesn’t 
matter what the question is, the answer always involves filling something 
sharp up with petrol.
How many crews out there disinfect their saws and hose/blow chippers down 
after working on HC with bleeding canker for example?
Surprise me.
It’s a culture change I don’t see the professional bodies and colleges/CPD 
embracing

Many years ago now a young diagnostic week student at Merrist Wood College 
came down to the Arb Workshop on the morning of his session with us. "'ere 
Mister" he said "what's this Aborticulture all about then?" I answered him 
straight "Mostly its about killing things"

Well isn't it?

That's just priceless Roger!!! That had genuinely never struck me. And I 
thought the difficulty was separating the profession for Forestry!


<< I once took some written ideas to a logo company. It was simple RODGER 
LOWE - Tree graphic - ARBORIST.
I came back 2 hours later to look at the proof; It read RODGER LOWE - Tree 
graphic - ABORTIONIST.

The designers only comment was "I wondered where the tree fitted in"

Tree Officer, Tree Guy, Tree Man, Tree Nut I don't mind but I still have my 
post nominal when gravitas is required.>>
