New guidelines for tree care


This fall, two sets of rules for tree care were published that are of international importance. The first is the translation of the German ZTV-Baumpflege (2017), which was prepared under the chairmanship of Prof. Dr. Dirk Dujesiefken. The "Additional Technical Terms of Contract and Guidelines for Tree Care" (ATTC-Tree Care) is the English version and can now be ordered directly from the FLL (

Secondly, the "European Tree Pruning Guide" has just been published. This standard is intended to define the technical procedures used for pruning amenity trees. It was developed within the framework of an Erasmus+ project by the working group "Technical Standards in Treework - TeST" with colleagues from various European countries.
This guideline is available free of charge. You can download it here.
