Arboriculture is a great career choice for people who enjoy being outdoors and who have a genuine interest in trees. As a tree surgeon, you’ll be protecting, maintaining and nurturing trees and shrubs – not just chopping them down.  You will be handling heavy-duty machinery, will need to have a good head for heights and be happy working outside in all weather conditions. Tree surgeons work in towns and the countryside, assessing tree health, removing branches, planting new stock and felling unsafe trees. Also known professionally as an arborist, they are responsible for the planting, pruning, felling, and general care and maintenance of trees and hedges.
