What does Arb Approved Mean?
The Arb Approved Contractor scheme is run by the Arboricultural Association, who are the UK’s governing body for the tree care industry. In such a competitive industry, Wolverhampton Tree Service Ltd consider being Arb Approved as a key contributor to our companies continued success. The commitment needed to attain this recognition is of a particularly high level, and requires significant dedication from the entire company, from management through to ground staff. Attaining this speaks for the level of professionalism throughout our entire team.

- Understanding and practical application of current arboricultural practice
- Compliance with legislative requirements of arboricultural contracting
- Compliance with health and safety requirements of arboricultural contracting (endorsed by CHAS scheme)
- High levels of service to clients through efficient business management
In addition to completing the initial assessment and subsequently gaining the status of Arb Approved Contractor, as a business we are also re-assessed every two years. This ensures that our standards stay at the highest level, and likewise our customer satisfaction levels.
Why Should I Choose an Arb Approved Contractor?
Many tree surgeons rely on word of mouth referrals, and for us this is certainly our favourite means of gaining new clients. Having clients refer their friends or business acquaintances is testament alone to the high standards of our work. However, for those clients who are seeking a tree company for the first time, and lack any solid recommendations, choosing the right company to do your work can be a minefield.
This is where holding Arb Approved status comes in to play, giving you the customer peace of mind knowing you are hiring a professional tree company. In addition to ensuring our tree work is of the highest standards, you can also feel safe knowing that every aspect of our business has been audited, from carrying all necessary insurances to protect us and you, to holding up to date certifications proving all our staff are fully trained for the tasks being carried out on your property.
When looking for a tree service in Wolverhampton, we would like to encourage all our potential customers to ensure you are employing professionals at all times, and always recommend choosing an Arb Approved Contractor, even if it isn’t us!
