Undertaking a course in arboriculture or woodland management and conservation is essential for a career in this important area which focuses on the sustainable development of our countryside, our urban spaces, our leisure pursuits and the countryside environment. We provide courses for the people who will manage and work in our forestry industries for timber production as well as those who want to become tree surgeons working on individual trees in parks, streets and private gardens. Learning from experts in the field our students will acquire all the practical and scientific skills to work in the industry or to study at an advanced level.

Our degrees in woodland conservation management have enabled students to progress to professional careers in managing woodland environments for the National Trust and the Forestry Commission, as well as for local authorities.
