Welcome to Arbortec!  

Arbortec is a Lantra training provider and NPTC City & Guilds assessor in forestry and arboriculture. We are qualified in training all aspects of tree surgery and chainsaw training, forestry-related machinery and utility arboriculture. We can also provide training for academic qualifications in arboriculture.

Arbortec was set up in 2002 by Rob Gibbs, an experienced arborist for over 25 years. We  are based in Northern Ireland but have also worked in other parts of Ireland and the UK as well as international destinations. We run our training courses from just outside Ballycastle, a pretty harbour town on the north Antrim coast, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty and 12 miles from the Giant’s Causeway, or from a site better suited to you the client. Belfast is 50 miles away and Dublin approx 150 miles.

We are a small, professional business and take pride in the attention to detail and level of service we are able to offer our customers, be they individuals or businesses. Whatever your requirements we are always happy to advise on anything from new techniques to equipment and if you have specific training needs we can create a bespoke training package for you.

Please call us on 028 20768024, although we are often out and about so it is sometimes quickest to ring our mobiles, drop us an email info@arbortec.info or via the Contact Us page and we will always try to reply but perhaps not instantly.
Clare 07970 484 398 (for course info and dates) and Rob 07855 433 835 (for technical matters). We can recommend local accommodation if required.

Covid-19 update at 28.05.20: While it is now possible to deliver Lantra training and City & Guilds assessments face-to-face, we have guidelines in place to enforce the reduction in transmission of Covid-19 and the protection of those at higher risk of infection.
