Tree Surgeon & Arborist Volunteer Opportunities
Become a DART Volunteer
If you would like to volunteer for DART as a Disaster Arborist Response Team member, or in some other support capacity, please download our volunteer registration form here and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will contact you to discuss your offer of support and, if appropriate, invite you to pre-deployment training.
Please note that Disaster Response Team volunteers should have 5 years industry experience and hold NPTC (or equivalent national qualifications) in the following:
Chainsaw Maintenance and Cross-cutting
Felling of trees up to 380mm
Felling of trees over 380mm
Emergency Tree Operations or Severing Uprooted or Windblown Trees
Tree Climbing and Rescue
Aerial Cutting of Trees with a Chainsaw using Freefall Techniques
Aerial Tree Rigging
An ‘in-date’ First Aid qualification (preferably specific to the Arb/Forestry industry)
If you don’t yet fulfil the requirements exactly, but are willing to work towards them, we may still be able to use your support and welcome your registration as a potential volunteer.
