Peter Hart Tree Services have now become members of the Forestry Contracting Association. Being part of a group that advises and lobbies for tree industry contractors is always a positive thing and as a result of that, we took the decision to take up membership.
“The Forestry Contracting Association (FCA) is the leading trade association within UK forestry and wood related industries.
The Association focuses on those businesses and individuals who are involved or interested in the contracting sector”
The most important aspect from our point of view is safety updates and bulletins; with the dangerous nature of the arb and forestry industry, it is crucial that we are aware of the newest industry best practice as well as the reporting of incidents so that we can mitigate against the same thing happening to us.
The FCA also provides practical task specific information to help contractors to maximise their potential, such as advice on site preparation and planting, timber harvesting, arb, and many more subject areas.
We will be keeping a close eye on the updates and look forward to being FCA members for years to come!
