Technical Guide 1 (TG1): Tree Climbing & Aerial Rescue is the first of a series of industry technical guides which are designed for trainees and professionals from the Arboricultural industry. They are designed to be read sequentially and TG2, TG3, TG4 and TG5 can be bought directly from the Arboricultural Association. If there is a high demand for other books from the series, ABC could obtain some copies and make them available to students at a reduced cost – please email [email protected] if you are interested in this.
TG1 has been developed by the Arboricultural Association (AA) as part of a comprehensive review of industry guidance relating to arboricultural tree work at height. It represents the culmination of several years of work involving hundreds of days of study, research and practical workshop exercises, demonstrations, drafting and industry consultation. It is designed to provide a practical guide to working at height in Arboriculture. Students should read this in conjunction with the Industry Code of Practice for Arboriculture – Tree Work at Height (ICoP), which provides an organisation’s Responsible Person with the information needed to implement appropriate structures, systems and controls in Arboricultural work.
