Our ecology team members, Samuel Olney and Aaron Isaacs, have been very busy this winter and it is our pleasure to announce that they have achieved their CS38 Tree Climbing and Aerial Rescue Level 2 certifications.
Samuel Olney has also been approved as being sufficiently experienced to hold a Bat Class 2 survey licence from Natural England.
Therefore, Abricon can now provide a bat licensed tree climbing team for your sites, as and when required!
Tree climbing surveys (sometimes known as aerial inspection surveys) are an effective way to assess a tree’s potential to support roosting bats. This technique, which uses access skills borrowed from tree surgery, is far more definitive than a ground-based survey, and can be a very cost-effective survey technique. Tree climbing surveys are undertaken using an endoscope to investigate above ground level features for bats or evidence of bats. Tree climbing surveys can be undertaken at any time of the year.
