Tree Risk Training & Management Advice

What's in it for you?

Tree risk management and assessment can be really challenging and confusing, can’t it?

We've done the hard work for you
Well, the great news is it needn’t be. With VALID, we've done the hard work for you, modelling the risk with an internationally distinguished Professor in risk of the natural environment. Then, we've taken out the bafflegab (vague words) and numberwang (difficult maths) so tree risk management and assessment is clear and easy to understand.

If all that wasn't enough, we've even written your Tree Risk-Benefit Management Strategy for you.

One thing you’re going to love about upgrading to VALID
Is how much more user-friendly you’ll find it. Whether you manage tree risk, or carry out tree risk assessments, you're about to discover how much less complicated and more effective it can be.

Don't take our word for it. Have a look at what Validators are saying about how they feel. These are some of the words they typically use.

"Uncomplicated...intuitive...simpler...clearer...smarter"

If you're an Arborist
When you've completed Validator training, you'll be able to carry out Active Assessment at a Basic, Detailed, and Advanced level. Your Tree Risk App and Validator Strategy does a lot of the heavy lifting for you and your clients.

If you manage tree risk
Get in touch, if you want help to customise and tailor one of our free Tree Risk-Benefit Management Strategies to meet your needs.

If you manage tree risk, or aren't an Arborist
Basic Validator (BV in the Calendar) training is for those of you who don't know that much about trees, but usually spend a lot of time working outside. Basic Validators carry out Passive Assessment by picking up on Obvious Tree Risk Features as they go about their day-to-day routines. They're a risk manager's greatest asset because they're most likely to pick up any red risks first.
