I would agree, I saw an NJUG 4 Doc in a comms gangs van once, van was parked 
on top of mulch ring round tree! Also saw the basics of NJUG referred to for 
Tree protection within a section on Trees and Construction within a site 
manual which was supposed to be referencing BS5837 also it had been recently 
revised, so how can site expect to get it right when manual authors can't 
(Not an Arb I assure you)

Over the years I have talked to quite a number of the Streetworks hole 
digging fraternity on site and have only ever found one person at the sharp 
end who had heard of NJUG or what the Prohibited and Precautionary Zones 
were. Until the hole diggers are involved any guidance seems pretty pointless.

Forgive me Sharon, but it is Friday,

We are the Borg Collective, resistance is futile and NJUG will be
assimilated and its unique biological and technological distinctiveness
added to our own.

Anyway, the National Association of Tree Officers were involved in NJUG 10
and 4.

Dear collective



I checked the NJUG website today and could not find the NJUG 4 document
*'Guidelines for the planning, installation and maintenance of utility
apparatus in proximity to trees' *on the website.  It used to be very easy
to find.



I phoned NJUG and the gentleman told me that their website had been re-done
and this document 'might have been taken off'.  Neither of us could tell for
sure as some of their website was down.



I raised my concern that this important document was not readily and easily
available, and asked if it was up for review.  I also asked if I could join
NJUG.



NJUG said that they would get back to me when it is up for review and the
process of review.  As arbs we cannot join NJUG (fair enough), but I feel it
is important that we have a voice.



 - has anyone been actively involved with the Expert Practitioners panel?



The gentleman on the end of the phone was very helpful, but if you feel
concerned that we have 'slipped through the fingers of the website
designer', perhaps we can individually contact NJUG to let them know how
important this document is?



All the best



Sharon
