With the proliferation of tree surgeons and landscaping companies that have appeared in recent years, an ARB Approved Contractor is a standard that is increasingly demanded by Local Authorities and other large commercial organisations. However, it is the public who should also be taking note. Just as you would with a car mechanic or an electrician, you want to make sure that you are using a company who is fully qualified, professional and has the right tools for the job.
An ARB Approved Contractor is the only comprehensive accreditation scheme for professional tree surgery businesses in the United Kingdom and has been setting the standard for tree work for more than 40 years.
The Arboricultural Association, often abbreviated as AA, is a renowned body dedicated to setting the gold standard for tree care practices. Only 2% of those in the industry achieve this standard by becoming an ARB Approved Contractor – a scheme which offers a recognised benchmark for arboricultural contracting throughout the UK and Ireland.
