Understanding and Managing Veteran Trees – Two-day training course (Burnham Beeches)

Location: Burnham Beeches, Buckinghamshire

This two-day course, developed as part of the VETcert project, is aimed at professionals wanting to continue their learning to improve their knowledge of managing veteran trees.

This course at Burnham Beeches is now full; if you would like to go on the waiting list, please let us have your details via our Contact Form.  There are still places available at the other venues in Bristol and Wrexham.

This course builds on the topics discussed during the introductory 1-day course Valuing and Managing Veteran Trees.

  2. Undertake a survey and take into consideration all relevant factors to produce a management plan for a veteran tree.

A certificate of attendance is provided upon completion of the course.
