What is the Register of Tree Work Operatives (R2)

For many years the arboriculture industry has been in discussion around developing a professional register for workers to record and demonstrate their skill, knowledge and experience. A register that would also enable clients to identify individuals and teams that have the required skills to undertake the work they’re being asked to do. R2 is due to be launched at the end of the year.

Leaders from across the arboriculture industry have now come together in a drive to progress these discussions and have launched this new and exciting project as the Register of Tree Work Operatives (R2). The register will have a set of graded job titles in a progressive structure. For each job there will be pre-defined set of criteria across three areas; task specific experience, qualifications and training and time served within the industry. Before moving up to the next grade, all of the pre-requisite criteria must be attained and the relevant time served.
