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.

An excellent, knowledgeable and very professional tree specialist service. The team arrived on time and did a fantastic job cutting two very overgrown trees. They left our garden and surrounding area clean and tidy. The 3 guys who came to our property were lovely and friendly. I would 100% recommend this company and will be using them in the future.

The team from Evoke came to carry out a reduction on the Oak tree in our garden as well as removing a conifer, and a couple of other bits. Really friendly and helpful and worked extremely hard to get everything done. Tidied everything up and left the garden in a much better state than before they arrived, Very happy with the service received.

Thanks to the guys from Evoke Tree Services. They did a wonderful job in terrible weather (wind, rain and sleet), and removed/cleared all branches and cuttings. Would definitely recommend them.

An excellent service from start to finish. A good discussion about what was needed and what was possible followed by a detailed estimate and a date for the diary. Both oaks were then dead wooded on schedule and the two surgeons clearly took care, being respectful of the tree and surrounding area (plus the overhang to our neighbours). They tidied up and checked we were happy before heading off. We will be using them again as and when needed.

One of the most professional services I have every received. Responded in time for the initial assessment, provided the quotation quickly, booked the appointment months in advance and they sorted the paperwork with the council. On the day they were very professional, pruned the tree very well and tidied everything, including (bedsides the garden) the alleyway and the roadside where they had parked. Recommended hands down. Many thanks guys!

Excellent service and great communication. They visited and quoted very quickly. We had to get estate management approval and Evoke took care of all of that. The team were very professional and did an excellent job of pruning the 2 trees and tidying up afterwards. I will definitely use Evoke again
