We are pleased to be able to provide training and assessments on our 250 acre site near Tunbridge Wells (Kent) - with it's two fully equipped workshops, outside practical area and woodland, it is ideal for training, allowing a smooth transition from workshop to yard to woodland.
Softwood plantations are predominately used for felling courses, with the option to mix in broadleaved and coppice crops if required.
Trees for climbing, aerial cutting and rigging course are plentiful, and spread over the whole site and relate to it's unusual history. The trees used for climbing only courses are part of the estate that was open to the public as informal woodland garden, so these areas benefit from a good selection of tree species, sizes and forms. For those intrested in developing their tree identification skills much of these areas was given to ornamental planting. With little hedge management over the last 100 years or so, field boundaries consist of mature oak, ash, hornbeam and sweet chestnut trees with plenty of lateral branches to climb and work on.
We benefit from being five minutes away from a main Stihl and husqvarna dealer. This allows us to quickly maintain or repair clients' kit or equipment.
Courses can be arranged at your own premises if more convenient and suitable.
Assessments are carried out on the training site, giving you confidence with your work area.
