The wide-ranging needs of arboriculturalists are being met by a packed programme of ‘World of Arb’ live demonstrations and ‘meet the expert’ sessions, as well as dedicated seminar presentations and a showground packed with exhibitors displaying all the equipment needed for safe and effective tree surgery.
In addition to providing non-stop ‘meet the expert’ advice concerning, for example, climbing gear and procedures, arboricultural specialists the BTS Group, will also be staging a daily programme of exciting live demonstrations covering best-practice routines for:
 Access – climbed versus platform – highlighting health and safety issues as well as the efficacy of the alternative routines;
 Aerial rescue techniques; and
 Chainsaw use and maintenance.
Kevin Moore, Training Manager of the BTS Training division, says the enthralling programme will involve BTS staff from the Group’s Ipswich, Luton and Leeds bases.
Elsewhere in the show, arborists will also be able to view and discuss a wide range of appropriate equipment – from harnesses through to sky-high access platforms – while in The Grandstand, as part of the show’s free education programme, a trio of experts from the Arboricultural Association’s Education and Training Committee will be presenting focused sessions on:
 Tree inspections and record keeping – by Rhoderic Taylor – on Tuesday September 8 at 10.45 hrs;
