The tree inspection and diagnostics standard

Proper tree care and protection is an investment in the future. For trees in man-made environments to live long and prosper, their management should follow certain standards. The following standards, which we have developed as part of the “Trees for Europe’s Green Infrastructure” project, serve this purpose.

The tree inspection and diagnostics standard organises, systematises and specifies procedures and content of tree assessment on two levels – basic and advanced. It helps to supplement current procedures and introduce new ones and can be used by both contractors and those that commission the services. The standard mandates the comprehensiveness of the assessment and is a guide to the most important diagnostic features.
