Professional Tree Inspection (PTI) - 25th Sept 2018
Kingswood TreeHouse Training are now offering Professional Tree Inspection courses. The first course was went well with Simon Cox from formerly of the Arborcultural Association. The students were guided through the inspection process with some great veterans at the nearby Knowle Park in Sevenoaks. I would recommend this course for anyone who wishes to progress to becoming an arboricultural consultant or just wishes to learn more about visual tree inspection. We are going to be running more with Simon soon so if you are interested phone Michele in the office. It is a great 3 days for tree geeks.

One of our new sites in The Weald, Kent 14th May 2018
Kingswood TreeHouse Training are lucky to have the use of a whole new site in mid Kent.
We have coveted these trees from afar for many years and now have landed permission to train tree climbing and aerial rescue on these wonderful broad crowned oaks.
This particular beast is over 300 years old and doing very well!
