Tree Pruning Refresher (TG1 Update 2020)

~1.0 Day(s)
From £250.00
We have updated the way that our aerial refresher is delivered so it reflects the changes to best climbing practice as laid out in the new Technical Guide 1: Tree Climbing & Aerial Rescue. This refresher course gives you updated pruning skills and an in-depth knowledge that will give you a greater understanding of any new pruning methods and when these should be applied, this is taught with a mixture of theory and practical training.


Tree pruning is a hugely important management tool for trees to ensure they remain healthy and safe.

Refreshing your skills to perform this task is important to ensure you perform the task safely. This is a hands-on refresher course that delivers both practical skills and health and safety guidance as well as demonstrating that you and your employer have completed sufficient training to meet the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER).

Equipment & PPE Requirements:

  • A form of photo ID either valid driving licence or passport.
  • Arborist Helmet, complete with a chin strap, full mesh face shield or visor, and suitable ear defenders.
  • Chainsaw Boots.
  • Chainsaw trousers with a minimum of Class 1 protection and a minimum of Type C coverage.
  • Non snag clothing suitable for all weather as you will be outside.
  • Gloves suitable for rope work, Showa 310 are highly recommended.

We recommend bringing your own Chainsaw, Maintenance Kit, Pruning Saw and Climbing equipment. This will give the best possible experience.

When bringing your own kit, you will need to show proof of a full and in date LOLER inspection of all equipment to be used. If you are bringing your own climbing equipment, please ensure the harness is fitted with a personal First Aid Kit, and you also have a handsaw or a knife with retractable blade.
