BS 3998:1989 gives general recommendations for tree work, and guidance for owners of established trees, agents of the owners, and those responsible for planning, specifying and undertaking work on maturing trees.

Recommendations are given  for safety precautions, sterilization of tools; preparations for wound treatment; bracing materials; techniques for applying nutrients and improving soil physical conditions; chemical treatments; and a method for protecting a large tree to be used as an anchor.

This revised standard was found to be necessary due to research findings, changes in techniques, equipment and chemicals; and due to the requirements for safety at work under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act, 1974 and the Food and Environment Protection Act, 1985, Part 3: Pesticides etc.
