Justin Richards

“I attended the Chainsaw Maintenance and Small Tree Felling Course. I was a complete beginner; I found the level and standard of teaching exceptional and the overall experience extremely positive.

John instilled confidence in me through his demonstrations, explanations, and one-to-one time - nothing was ever too much trouble. I used everything I had learned that week during my assessment and I was grateful for the experience.

I started on the Monday having never even started a chainsaw, let alone cut anything, and finished my assessment on the Saturday with the confidence and ability to maintain my chainsaw and fell small trees in a professional and safe manner, and to a high standard.

For anyone looking for professional training in a friendly professional environment, I can thoroughly recommend Arbor Venture. I will definitely be back for more courses and training!”

"I attended the Tree Climbing & Aerial Rescue course. The course taught me how to install bat boxes onto trees as part of my job as an Ecologist. With no arboricultural or climbing background I was slightly apprehensive about the week long course. However, under Jo's expert tuition I had nothing to worry about. The days were well structured and perfectly paced. Jo is an excellent teacher; very informative and extremely patient. Overall, a great week and now I am hooked on tree climbing."

"Having used a chainsaw privately for a number of years, it was time to learn how to do things correctly. We had all abilities in the group from experienced users to those who had hardly used a saw at all. The training material met the needs of all four of us, with even the experienced guys learning some new techniques.


Our instructor was John Trenchard; clearly a very experienced and capable instructor who is very knowledgeable on all forestry matters and ready to pass on his knowledge at every opportunity. He paced the course to suit all four of us, ensuring some of the more experienced chaps were not held back while the less experienced learned at a rate they were comfortable with.

The entire training programme is extremely well organised and delivered in a methodical, confident and friendly manner. I have not had so much fun for a long time; I really enjoyed myself."
