Landowners in Northamptonshire have been urged by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) to take more responsibility for looking after their trees.

The call comes after a number of recent injuries were reported after falling trees and branches fell on individuals, with IOSH stressing that all trees should be cared for in order to reduce risks to public safety.

Alan Plom, event organiser for the IOSH Rural Industries Group, said: "Landowners need to balance the risks and benefits that having trees on their land can bring, and adopt a sensible, proportionate approach to tree safety."

Mr Plom underlined that, when analysing tree safety, it is vital that dangers are considered without adopting an overly defensive approach, which may harm tree stocks.

The importance of health and safety was recently emphasised by a Bibby Consulting and Support representative Michael Slade, who advised firms to carefully consider the particular health and safety risks of their industry.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801324842-ADNFCR
