Accreditation & Insurance
As an Arboricultural Association Approved Contractor, our clients have the comfort of knowing that we hold all the relevant industry standard accreditations and that we meet the benchmark imposed by the industry’s leading professional body.
From private individuals, to large commercial clients, our aim is always to exceed your expectations.
All our arborists are fully certified, insured and carry out all work in accordance with current health, safety and environmental legislation and industry best practice, including British Standard 3998 ‘Recommendations for Tree Work’ (2010) and the Arboricultural and Forestry Advisory Group (AFAG) safety guidelines. Scroll over the icons at the bottom of the page to see our accreditations at a glance.
All our work is covered by a minimum £5 million Public Liability (£10 million Employers’) insurance to protect our clients, third parties and us. Copies of our insurance are available on request.
At Plantscape Tree Services, we recognise the challenges facing our environment and the constructive role we play in addressing it.
We believe we have a duty to make sustainable choices and to invest in innovative and new and emerging technologies. Committed to reducing our dependence on fossil fuels, we recently introduced battery-powered equipment that has helped us to reduce our carbon footprint, controlled noise pollution and decreased harmful vibration exposure to our operatives. We are constantly reviewing and updating our working practices to ensure we are making environmentally conscious choices.
We encourage the reduction of waste and renew, replace or recycle as we can. The bulk of the woodchip we produce is sent to power stations to be used as a renewable energy. Wood butts are seasoned and processed on site and sold as wood fuel.
Skills and training
All our operatives undergo training to improve their skills, knowledge and abilities and to keep up to date with current legislation and working practices.
Our highest skilled tree surgeons hold National Proficiency Test Council (NPTC) certificates for chainsaw use and hold Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) cards, which allow them to work on construction sites.
As a bare minimum, all our operatives have at least level three diploma in forestry and arboricultural and chainsaw and felling tickets.
