Learning from a legendary arboriculturist, within the spectacular Exbury Gardens; this popular and regularly updated workshop provides an excellent introduction to the art and science of visual tree assessment (VTA) and is a great opportunity to improve existing VTA skills.

The morning lecture will concentrate on:

  • The tree as a system and self optimised structure
  • The principles of VTA
  • Decay fungi
  • Mechanical symptoms
  • Inspection equipment
  • Making recommendations

The afternoon session will consist of a VTA tree walk led by Jack Kenyon though Exbury Gardens estate, followed by a summing up back in the training room.

All delegates will receive a set of bound VTA workshop notes as a guide to the themes covered on the day.

The cost of the event is £50.00 including VAT (@20%) per person.

Lunch is not provided so delegates will need to bring a packed lunch or light lunches can be purchase at Eddy's Tea Rooms . Refreshments (tea & coffee) will be provided during the day.
