Kingswood Training, one of the UK’s Top Tree Surgery Training Providers!
Kingswood Trees small beginnings
Richard Olley started his Tree Surgery business in June 1987 – 4 months before the famous hurricane that uprooted several million trees in the South East. He built the business up, gradually taking on more staff, and building a sound reputation with a wide range of domestic, commercial and Local Authority clients.

After 15 years he decided to become an instructor, and he applied to join the Lantra Instructor Training Scheme. He passed all his exams and assessments and qualified to teach the full range of arboricultural skills. Two years later he also became an NPTC Assessor.
The Kingswood training business boomed, and in 2006 Kingswood Training proudly opened their purpose-built, state of the art training centre.
After many years building up the successful training centre, that Kingswood is, Richard has decided to leave to pursue a more relaxed lifestyle. We wish him all the very best in his future endeavours.
We believe the quality of our training is reflected in our results; we have an exceptionally high pass rate of NPTC City and Guilds and Lantra courses – 95% of our last 500 candidates passed their assessments at the first attempt.
