How do I go about stopping trees from appearing where I don't want them to, see attachment, I don't want them over that ridge. Is the a relatively easy way of doing this, maybe a tutorial, I don't know what to search for really as I haven't done anything with adding objects yet.

Your going to want to use a distribution shader in the density shader slot of the populator as seen in the image attachment.
There are other ways to mask out populations too like using a bitmap mask, or the painted shader, but for restricting populations by elevation the distribution shader is probably the easiest way.

Some links I found while doing some searching:
