Cities all over the world, from Melbourne to New York, from Beijing to Los Angeles, are looking to boost the number of trees in their public spaces.

The Graduate Certificate in Arboriculture is designed for professionals managing trees or wanting to learn how to manage trees in the urban forest.

In this course, you will study urban forest management, tree growth and function, plant identification and selection, pests and diseases, and environmental stresses - such as climate change.

Study while you work

Learn from a garden campus

You'll spend your time with urban forestry experts at our beautiful Burnley campus, where you’ll find an extensive collection of trees – both native and exotic – with an urban forestry and arboriculture research station.
