Does anyone have knowledge/experience of working in The Netherlands?

Recommended Posts



I am strongly considering making a move to The Netherlands in a couple of years, I was just wondering if anyone could give advice on how to find jobs out there as a climber? I know people have gardens so there must be a demand for tree surgeons, I assume.


Thanks in advance for any information.

I lived and worked in the Netherlands for 11 years, between 96-07, mainly for a county council, starting as a team leader, ending up as a contract manager.

You are welcome to contact me at [email protected] for further info and advice on life and work in NL.

hey steve,


As a dutchman myself i could tell you everything you'd like to know about tree surgery in the Netherlands.

Tree surgeons are in demand, but some companies want tree surgeons that have the ETW(european tree worker) certificate.


As said before, go on treehugs and ask the question there.
