FCV offered a tree advisory service through its Forest Extension Branch and staff located at country forest offices. These were available free of charge and the 1981 listing found at this link gives an idea of the scope of topics covered. Copies of a number of these are provided below. WARNING: The advice in these leaflets and publications about the use of chemicals is now out of date and the reader should refer to the appopriate contemporary guides and associated material safety data sheets.
