About Us

Find out why Arbtech is the UK's number one ecological & arboricultural consultancy

This year, in every corner of the UK, over 8,000 people just like you will rely upon our friendly, straight-talking specialists to deliver their arboricultural and ecological surveys.

Since 2005, we've worked incredibly hard to shape a company that we think you'd actually like to do business with. We know that the important things to you are competitive and transparent costs, reliability and above all, speed, because those are exactly the same things that are important to us!

At Arbtech, we take complete ownership of your arboricultural and ecological site issues so you can get your planning consent as fast and hassle free as possible.

We are headquartered in Chester and have office locations in Birmingham and London, however the overwhelming majority of our surveys are undertaken by our ever-growing team of 'Arbtechers'; home-based, full-time and permanent employees strategically spread throughout most of England and Wales.

It's this office and home-based model that allows us to cover the majority of the UK for a fixed, published price, while building valuable relationships with clients and local planning authorities alike. It also means less travel and more family time for our consultants, too. Everyone wins.

Our Culture

We realised a long time ago that setting ourselves the goal of being the number one career destination of choice for arboriculturists and ecologists was the path we needed to tread. It meant us putting our employees unequivocally before everything else, and in hindsight, it was definitely the right choice.

Completely flexible working hours, an unlimited continuing professional development budget and a flat management structure, regular outings and away days and letting our employees decide their own bonuses are just a few of the perks of working here, but really they're only part of a much wider and deeper culture.

Why do we do all of this? We do it for you. Because happy employees, truly happy ones, will move heaven and earth for you, our client, week in and week out, without the faintest grumble. Nothing is too much trouble for them. That's how we offer weekend survey appointments, next working day reports and on occasion, same day surveys and reports!
