I am interested in starting my level 4 qualification next year, but first I’d like to familiarise myself with some decent arb content.


So I am looking for advice on any arb related textbooks? Anything that would assist me in relation to a level 4 qualification would be ideal.


Many thanks

For the ABC Awards Level 4 in Arboriculture there are reading references after each unit in the handbook. So find the unit you're interested in, find that section and see the references at the end of the unit details.

We are running the ABC Level 4 in Arboriculture starting this Autumn. It will be classroom based in the Tamar Valley, Devon/Cornwall Border. If anyone is interested then get in touch with the Lynher Training office. 01822 832232. admin@lynher.com


Hope that helps.

Hopefully you've got a land-based college nearby with a good 'arb' library :thumbup1:


I hope so. I estimate that lot of books to buy would be around £3,500. If you can even get them.

Fantastic! Thanks a lot!



If I could have only one book to keep and know it would be "Trees: Their Natural History" by Peter Thomas.
