This is a most excellent course which can be run once or twice a year depending on uptake. It is aimed at anyone with direct responsibility for trees in their professional life. As arborists ourselves we found it invaluable when quoting and advising on trees. Although more academic than the basic tree inspection course, arborists should have no real difficulties with the subject matter due to its familiarity in their work life and those who are not full-time arborists will be more than adequately guided through the course content by our first-rate instructor.
Topics covered vary from trees and the law, tree biology and mechanics and pests and diseases as well as actual report writing and recommendations. In the tree-report business this would be considered entry level.
There is written and verbal assessment on the fourth afternoon of this 4-day Level 3 qualification course.
