About this book

Language: Trilingual in English, Russian and Swedish

The European Tree Worker programme was developed between 1996–1999 within the framework of the Leonardo-da-Vinci-Programme. The objective has been to harmonize the skill level of the specialized field of tree care within a unified Europe. Further goals have been to ensure a high standard of tree care operations, a qualified common level of training and to facilitate the international movement of European Tree Workers. In order to reach these objectives, the EAC has developed an examination and certification system for the European Tree Worker. This system has now been accepted in 25 European countries.

The examination and certification system includes a curriculum, examination regulations, the ETW Certificate as well as this Handbook.

The European Tree Worker Handbook is a practical guide which is designed to help the European Tree Worker prepare him-/ herself for the ETW examination. It may also be used as a reference book. This revised edition from 2016 includes the complete "European Tree and Palm Planting Guide” and the "European Pruning Guide”, both by the EAC. This 8th edition of the European Tree Worker Handbook is written in English/Russian/Swedish with the aim of assisting in the cross-border transfer of tree care knowledge and to assure high quality tree operations in a unified Europe – for the benefit of all our trees.
