Basic Tree Survey and Inspection Training Course

Identifying hazardous trees is a vital part of a number of jobs, from farmers and land owners to local authority park and  highways staff to stately home, golf course, university and rural estate workers. Our training is designed to help you recognise and then report issues to an appropriate expert. This course is targeted at those who may have a responsibility for trees in the course of their work. Additionally, this course may be useful for those who work with trees in a voluntary capacity. It’s a basic one-day course to give you the knowledge to be able to identify potential hazards.
