Hi, I’m James Kendall, the Head Bushcraft Instructor at Woodland Classroom.
I've been teaching in outdoor education for 10 years now and I love trees and being out in the woods. I've created this course because so many people I meet have a real interest in trees but struggle to identify the many species we have in the UK.
With The Complete Tree ID Course you'll take a year long journey with me to becoming a fully fledged tree expert.
I really look forward to sharing my knowledge and experience with you.
"James' passion for trees shines through and the level of observation and detailed knowledge make these videos a valuable tool for anyone wishing to build on their understanding of our precious countryside."
- Dave Watson, Woodland Survival Crafts Ltd.
"The Tree ID Course is a fantastic source of knowledge and information. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and it has helped me to learn so much about tree identification whilst honing my skills. I really enjoyed the format of the course and the mix of online learning that I could easily practise and apply when I was outside. The downloadable cheat sheets were a perfect companion to check and compare whilst looking at trees. The Online Tree ID course is ideal for beginners and improvers looking to gain knowledge about how to ID trees."
- Rhiannon Thomson, Forest School Leader
"This is a great resource, it's really helped me deepen my knowledge of native trees. I've also used the downloads with my own groups who have found the cheat sheets clear and easy to use. Great stuff!"
- Craig Armiger, Outdoor Coaching UK
