There are a wide range of career opportunities for arborists worldwide. If you enjoy the outdoors, have an interest in nature, like to be physically active, have a sense of adventure and excitement and like the idea of becoming a proficient operator of specialised tools and equipment, this may be the career for you.

Arboriculture offers a variety of opportunities in the management of high value amenity trees including becoming a professional tree climber, elevated work platform operator, crane and rigging specialist, works coordinator and environmental arborist.

This career will challenge you to become an expert at risk management and in tree biology and ecology, whilst offering the thrill of performing meaningful work close to nature, often at dizzying heights, in amongst the leaves and branches of the treetops.

The wise management of trees is growing in profile as we seek to manage our environment in a more sustainable way. A career in arboriculture offers the opportunity to become involved in this transformation.
