What is it all about?


Get your competitive spirit on - you'll be part of a team racing to locate and correctly identify (using your horticulture skills) rare trees and shrubs in the Hamilton Gardens. The winning team will win a prize.


See the world from a different perspective. Experience life as an arborist and learn to climb trees safely, using the right equipment. If you have an adventurous spirit, love the great outdoors, and enjoy challenging yourself physically, arboriculture could be your future.

What to bring/wear?

Please bring appropriate clothing and closed in shoes (eg sneakers) that are suitable for orienteering.
