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.
Support for our Project LIFE15GIE/PL/000959 „Trees for Europe’s Green Infrastructure” is first and foremost assured by the EU’s LIFE Programme, as well as the Voivodeship Funds for Environmental Protection and Water Management in Wrocław, Gdańsk and Poznań (Poland); Stefan Batory Foundation, the United Kingdom’s Charities Aid Foundation; and the Norddeutsche Stiftung für Umwelt und Entwicklung based in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Germany. The Project is also funded by donations from individuals and institutions, as well as from the Project partners’ own means.
