What is an Arboricultural Association Approved Contractor?

What does it mean?

ARB Approved Contractor is the only comprehensive accreditation scheme for professional tree surgery businesses in the United Kingdom.

An ARB Approved Contractor (ArbAC) is a business that has been audited and assessed by the Arboricultural Association and has met and continues to uphold the Scheme Standards (including H&S compliance, operational competence, work standards and technical knowledge). The business owner is also required to abide by the Association’s Codes of Ethics and Professional Conduct and to conduct its business in accordance with good customer care practices (signing up to a complaints procedure allowing the exceptional unhappy customer access to the Association to help resolve matters).

High standards

The Arboricultural Association ARB Approved Contractor scheme has been setting the standards for tree surgery work for more than 40 years. The arboriculture industry is not regulated by government but has a high accident potential and a responsibility to care for the UK’s rich tree heritage.

The Arboricultural Association’s assessment of Approved Contractors is not limited to their knowledge of trees and tree maintenance but also includes:

  • Their understanding and practical application of current arboricultural practice.
  • Their compliance with legislative requirements of arboricultural contracting.
  • Their compliance with health and safety requirements of arboricultural contracting.
  • Their high levels of service to clients through efficient business management.

Over the last couple of years the team at Evoke have turned the apple tree in my garden from a sad thing that barely produced fruit into a beautiful vibrant tree that gives apples in abundance. They are professional, knowledgeable, punctual and reasonably priced. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

We used Evoke for the first time in July 2021. We were very pleased with the work they did, we could fine tune things as they went along and the guys cleared up nicely afterwards. A personable bunch of fellers they were too! Pricing seemed competitive, and boss Billy was very professional.
