About Us

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

"We know that the important things to you are competitive and transparent costs, reliability and above all, speed."

Rob Oates, Director

Our History

Last year, over two thousand people in almost every county of England and Wales relied upon our friendly, straight-talking specialists to deliver their arboricultural and ecological surveys. Each one of these clients, people just like you, enjoyed a 98% success rate at planning, after following our advice.

Since 2005, and now in our thirteenth year of trading, 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!

Our History
How We Work

How We Work

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 geographically 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 authorities alike. It also means less travel and more family time for our consultants, too.

Our Principles

We've stuck to some simple principles that have helped us become the leading arboricultural and ecological consultants in the UK.

Great Speed & Price

We know how important speed and price is to you and our whole business is geared towards providing you with quick reports at a low price.

Brilliant Customer Service

We have worked hard to create a company you would actually like to do business with.

Straight Talking

We all prefer simple, straight talking advice. You won’t find any confusing jargon in our reports.


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 (no one is anyone's boss), 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!

Our Culture

Meet Our Team

We are the nerds of nature, the grassland geeks, ecology evangelists, and the deans of dendrology... and we'd love to hear from you.
