Arb Approved Contractor
Groundlord Limited now officially holds ‘Arb Approved Contractor’ status with the Arboricultural Association (“AA”) after being subject to the AA’s rigorous business assessment and approved as fully competent and compliant with the Association’s standards and Codes of Ethics and Professional Conduct.
The AA’s Approved Contractor scheme is the only comprehensive accreditation scheme for professional tree surgery businesses in the United Kingdom. A world-leading authority on arboricultural best practice, the AA has been setting professional standards and guidance for tree surgery work for more than 40 years.
There are approx. 20-25,000 tree surgery businesses in the UK but only around 300 (that’s under 2%) of these businesses hold the Arb Approved Contractor status.
In addition to attaining the Arb Approved Contractor status we have also achieved the CHAS accreditation demonstrating compliance with Safety Schemes in Procurement Core Criteria and UK Health and Safety Legislation.
