All bats depend on trees at a number of different levels – some roost in trees, many use woodland for foraging, and trees and treelines are also used as flightlines. Some of our rarest bats roost in trees, and therefore BCT is keen that arborists receive adequate training about bats, their relationship with trees, and the law surrounding this.

BCT, the Arboricultural Association and Lantra Awards have developed a one-day awareness course to help arborists deal with these issues.

Local Authority Planners

Planners frequently come up against issues with bats, and other protected species, in their day to day work. BCT is keen to ensure that planners are given adequate training and resources to deal with these issues. As a result, we have teamed up with the Mammal Society to develop a course aimed at planners. This will cover all protected species, not just bats.

Construction industry

All those who are responsible for buildings and their renovation and/or development, and those who carry out the above, are likely to come across bats. BCT is keen to ensure that all those in this industry are aware of their responsilities with regards to bats, and so has developed a one-day awareness course for the construction industry and those associated with it.
