At Asplundh we believe training is not only about addressing current skills gaps, but also to ensure we consistently grow the skills of our teams and crews over time.
Our internal training and development programmes are focused on safety and best practice, and are continually reviewed and updated as techniques and equipment change.
All tree trimming staff involved in powerline clearance undertake Asplundh’s competency warranting procedures before they undertake work. The warranty is a series of practical assessments to test and ensure competencies.
Asplundh is part of the modern apprenticeship scheme and in addition we sponsor a number of industry competitions such as the National Tree Climbing events and the Young Horticulturalist of the Year to promote professional development within our industry.
