Course Information

Basic Tree Inspection

Identifying hazardous trees is a vital part of a number of jobs, from park rangers to estate workers.

Our training is designed to help you recognise and then report issues to an appropriate expert.

It’s a basic one-day course to give you the knowledge to be able to identify potential hazards.

The finer details

This is a training course only – a certificate of attendance will be issued.

We’ll guide you through the process with a balanced mix of theory and practice.

You’ll learn the relevant health and safety issues, as well as key legislation and risk assessments.

A practical session identifying hazardous trees will also form part of the course.

Course sessions:

  • Legal framework
  • Collecting the information
  • The limits and scope of the surveys
  • Hazardous trees
  • Exercises

Worth noting: Although our course is mostly classroom-based, you’ll be expected to be able to look at a range of trees outside.
