Our clients say…

  • Extremely knowledgable instructor, great site, good notes and plenty of time to practice new skills

  • Loved the CS 32/34 chainsaw 'windblow' course last week at beautiful Thirlmere. Learned how many bad chainsaw habits I've picked up it over the years!

  • On another note, can I thank all at Cumbria Woodlands for the excellent tree, woodland and timber training that we are currently enjoying.
