Trees for Cities offers training for individuals in either arboriculture or horticulture.

As well as training and qualifications, candidates are given the opportunity to gain practical experience on the variety of horticultural and arboricultural projects run by Trees for Cities. We have extensive experience in working with people who have been unemployed for some time.

Our training opportunities are supported by the government drive to improve the urban green workforce. Trees for Cities provides accreditation in green skills and also offers trainees support in seeking sustainable employment.

Funding comes through various sources, from employment agencies to smaller trust funds, and is aimed at helping London residents enjoy a more rewarding life.

Our Training Centre and Operations Base is located at:

Trees for Cities
Ruskin Park
Denmark Hill
SE5 8EL (see a map)

“What’s great about Trees for Cities is that their work is as much about people as it is about trees”
