Testimonials from our previous Padua workshop

I have to say that this was the best CPD I have ever done. The teaching quality was outstanding. If you get the opportunity to go on one of Treework's study tours I would highly recommend you go. You will not be disappointed.

Gary Meadowcroft
Tree Services Manager – Southwark Council

A wonderful opportunity to learn in a very enjoyable way. The careful preparation showed through all aspects of the study tour which made for a full programme of learning and an enjoyable social experience. This was a quality event which exceeded our expectations. I would recommend similar events as excellent value and very worthwhile.
