About the Course

This two-day course includes accreditation. Delegates will be guided through a number of sample case studies, and shown how to value specimens using the most common models. The course aims to show delegates the value of trees within the environment as part of a wider perspective. The course provides everything necessary to enable attending delegates to start writing professional tree valuation reports. It also provides new insights and recent findings for veteran valuers to bring them up to speed.


Attendance to both days of the course is essential for accreditation. Successful delegates will be certified to apply the four valuation techniques as applicable to a series of case studies. Successful completion of the course will qualify Professional CAS Members for inclusion in the Tree Valuation category of the member’s database
