Register your interest in attending a supervising arborist workshop and we'll be in touch with details and dates for the next workshop.

The workshop will be delivered by Dr Andrew Benson and will cover what is required from an arborist monitoring construction works around trees. 

In order to become a listed supervising arborist on the Council website, you must meet the requirements of a works arborist and attend this workshop – along with passing the test given at the end of the workshop.
