Eden Tree Specialists Ltd gain ARB Approved Contractor (ArbAC) status
Eden Tree Specialists Ltd have recently attained the status of ARB Approved Contractor (ArbAC). The ARB Approved Contractor Scheme is the only comprehensive accreditation scheme for tree surgery businesses in the United Kingdom and is operated by The Arboricultural Association.
The ARB Approved Contractor scheme is increasingly demanded by Local Authorities and other large commercial organisations. ARB Approved Contractor is also of considerable benefit in the domestic sector as a quality mark assuring the client of good quality tree care undertaken safely and efficiently.
The scheme requires the contractor to meet high standards covering four key areas and then exhaustively tests all aspects of a tree-care business’s operation and management: –
- 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 (endorsed by the CHAS scheme)
- Their high levels of service to clients through efficient business management.
But what does that mean in practical terms for customers? It means that one of the most important professional bodies in the world of arboriculture has visited our premises, checked our paperwork, seen our staff working on site, seen previous examples of our work, questioned our operatives and after assessing us, they have decided that we are a professional company who will provide you with “good quality tree care undertaken safely and efficiently”, to quote the Arboricultural Association’s own definition.
Samuel Dudley, Managing Director of Eden Tree Specialists Ltd said “Achieving this accreditation is of great importance to the business. This recognition gives our clients the assurance of our high standards of work. This means a huge amount to me personally and to our whole team, as we work so hard to ensure that our working practices are at the very best level possible”.
