I'm already at character level 5, but when I look at the character abilities page, the three trees for swordsmanship, alchemy and magic are still locked. I can only invest talents into the training tree.

Do I have to get to a certain point in the story to unlock them? Or am I missing something obvious.

From the manual:

4.3 Development paths

Training – the primary development path. To begin another path, you must spend at least six talents on the talent path abilities..

I now found a section in the in-game help that states that you need to invest 6 talents into the witcher tree before the other three trees are unlocked. When I reached character level 7 and invested the 6 talents, it did indeed unlock the other trees.
