The University and its gardens are a particularly significant and unique venue offering wonderful trees and a history of pioneering canopy research from Dr Martin Barker.
Whether you have project in mind or simply an interest in knowing what is involved in getting off the ground and into trees safely, join us for one of our introduction courses to tree climbing for science and research.
21st – 22nd May – Introduction to Tree Climbing for Science & Research. Module 1
23rd – 24th May – Introduction to Tree Climbing for Science & Research. Module 1
This is the first of two modules in the Level 1 Tree Climbing for Science & Research course and was developed to provide the skills, knowledge and understanding to access and carry out research safely in the forest canopy.
The two days are predominately practical and we focus on techniques to gain access, move and work in and around the tree.
For those taking part in either of the courses above there is the opportunity to take part in a complimentary day on Friday focusing on specific sampling techniques and how to carry them out at height in trees.
25th May – Introduction to Canopy Sampling Techniques
