Basic Tree Inspection Lantra Awards

This one-day course will provide you with specific tree survey and inspection training at a basic level, and is ideal if you are from a non-arboricultural background, or have limited arboricultural knowledge – you could be working as a contractor, highway engineer, tree warden, grounds maintenance staff and a range of other roles. You will gain the knowledge needed to identify obvious defects from ground level and report your findings to a line manager.
