Two Arb prizes to be won – Which one is for you?




At APF 2022, in collaboration with Keely at Tree Life AC, we are offering information, support and two amazing prizes for the Arboriculture community.


Our theme for the show is – 'Supporting arborists in creating a long and satisfying career in trees'.


  • We want to help the aspiring Arborist who is aiming to get off the tools and head into their first technical role - working with trees, but from the ground.
  • We know from many years in the industry talking to arb employers that the PTI is the course that helps consolidate a climbing Arborists’ CV
  • The PTI (Professional Tree Inspector) is a 3-day course which is respected throughout the industry. In combination with a Level 3 in Arboriculture it gets you the leg up to an interview for a technical post - from climber to tree surveyor/tree officer and beyond.


Now’s not the time? Not sure whether you’re ready? Or already have a PTI? Never fear – we are also offering a one-day Fungi course – another useful arb qualification.


The prizes are being offered by Tree Life in collaboration with us and they are both courses which will support Arborists on their career path and other technical positions.

For a chance to WIN either Professional Tree Inspector course or a Fungi Recognition and Response course All you have to do is:



Either drop us a line at [email protected]follow and message us on Instagram or LinkedIn, or pop along at the show and say hello. That’s all! Once we’ve said hello back and had a short conversation, we’ll pop your name in the pot and you’ll be in with a chance to win.


*Small print: The course financial values are £450+vat and £120+vat respectively but it’s the value to a career we’re interested in. There is no cash alternative – the winners will be decided by Tree Life and CTC Recruitment and the judge’s decision is final. We’re doing this to spread the word; start conversations; support Arb careers and the industry and hope you’ll approach the competition in the spirit intended – thanks. Winners will be annonced by the end of September.

Hi Mick, the courses have different requirements, so between Tree Life and ourselves we’ll choose two winners who will be able to do the courses and benefit from them. Everyone who wants to can let us know where they are now and chat through where they think they might want to take their tree career. We’re there to help and advise as well as to hear views from a climbers and consultancy perspective. Hope that helps. Kate 😊

Yes. The idea is that we take a minute to understand where the applicant is in their career at the moment. What a good next step would be and whether one of the courses that tree life offer would help. I am working on making a form that could be filled in but we don’t want it to be too complicated or feel difficult. We would just like to make connections with people and support arborists as they head towards the latter half of their climbing career and consider getting off the tools. Does that make sense? I’m interested in making sure that we’ve got this right. From the angle we see it it’s a good opportunity but I’m very interested in your opinion. Thank you, Kate.
