  • BTI Basic Tree Inspection 1 day - 16 Sept - This training is designed to help learners recognise hazardous trees as part of your other duties and then report what has been seen to an appropriate person. It is not expected that learners will have a detailed knowledge of tree biology, legislation or any other specific arboricultural specialism.
  • 21-08 CS39 Aerial Tree Cutting, 2 days training, 1 day assessment - 18-20 Sept - The course builds on the climbing skills already covered in the foundation climbing course and looks at building up your experience to achieve safe work positioning in order to operate a chainsaw from a rope and harness.


With recent sightings of OPM in Hampshire, the public and businesses are being warned about the threat the caterpillars face to both people and the trees. OPM can be dealt with through manual means, or by spraying with pesticides. If you need to manage OPM through pesticides then you must be qualified to do so.
We can provide the necessary training and assessment to allow the use of misting sprayers to deal with this pest - call us for more information on 0162 882 7317.
