Trees are the oldest and most sizeable of all earth’s living organisms – some have even survived for thousands of years. Little wonder then that they have been mythologized throughout history in many cultures. Tree worship aside, we need to respect and cherish these great plants – no longer just for fruitful, aesthetic or cultural reasons, but for the sake of our habitat, our environment, our planet. Trees are the world’s biggest business and the demand for job opportunities is enormous. It is predicted there will be a need for 50,000 additional agricultural professionals in this industry over the next 5-10 years. Demand for professionals will exceed the supply. Whether your interest in agriculture is hobby based or you’re looking for more formal qualifications such as certificates, advanced certificates, diplomas and advanced diplomas there is a course for you. Now is the time to train for a career in agriculture. Choose from our wide selection of courses. If you want to learn more about these important plants, why not embark on one of ADL’s home study courses.

Get qualified:  If a career in arboriculture appeals to you, it’s important to get a thorough training in the subject. ADL can provide you with a course to suit your need and all from the comfort and convenience of your home.

Change of Career:  There are many careers in arboriculture: nursery manager; tree trimmer; forest pathologist; scientist – to name but a few.  If you harbour fond memories of childhood tree-climbing, are under 30 and looking for a physically demanding, highly skilled and challenging job that involves working outside in all conditions, why not explore a career as an arborist? Arborists are more than just tree surgeons – they care for trees and have a good understanding of arboriculture.

Britain can boast a variety of trees and shrubs that add beauty and substance to our landscape and gardens, as well as providing shelter and shade, nourishment and nest spots to many animals.  From Hazel, a bushy shrub that can sometimes develop into a tree, to the graceful Silver Birch, with its ‘lamb’s tail’ catkins, to the Ash, which has flourished across the English landscape in the wake of the diminishing Elm, to largely ornamental trees like the Weeping Willow, and fruit trees, such as the Cultivated Apple, there is a wealth of interesting and important knowledge to be gathered that can enhance our understanding and appreciation of these wonderful plants.

Learn Something New:  If you’re passionate about the environment and would like to develop new skills, why not look into ADL’s online arboriculture courses. You can even turn your passion into a successful business… Learn the skills and get equipped!

Professional Development: If you already work in arboriculture and would like to develop your existing skills and learn more, ADL can offer a course to suit your needs – from a basic foundation in tree care and culture, to diplomas and advanced certificates (including business management and arboriculture).
