New report: London Trees and Woodland Skills Survey 2023

Over the last few years, a number of reports have highlighted the skills and labour concerns of those in the arboricultural sector nationwide. Whilst these reports have been useful in examining the issues facing the industry as a whole, they highlighted a gap in data specifically around the unique challenges specific to those working in tree and woodland management and maintenance across Greater London.

This gap in evidence and insight has made it more challenging for sector organisations to develop, fund, and deliver tangible initiatives to fill skill gaps and promote tree and woodland skills to a new generation.

As a result, the London Tree Officers Association and Parks for London, working as part of the London Urban Forest Partnership secured funding from the Trees Call to Action Fund to deliver a workforce skills survey to seek the views of arboriculture and urban forestry professionals working in Greater London.
