Our expert ecological consultants in action.

When you need a reliable, experienced ecological consultancy to help with your project we are ready to help. Simply get in touch with us and provide us with the details of your project.

Once this is done one of our ecological consultants will send a quote over to you. There is no obligation to proceed with the quote and we provide quotes with no jargon and plenty of information to help you make a decision.

If you decide that you would like us to help with your project, you can send the provided quote form back to us and we will book in a time to visit your site and complete your survey.

Following on from this, one of our ecological consultants will attend your site to carry out the survey. Once the site visit is done they will write any reports required and send them to you.

A Different Kind of Ecology Consultancy

There are quite a few things that make Arbtech different to your typical ecological consultancy. Firstly, with a number of our ecologists being home based and located over a wide area of the UK, we are able to reduce business overheads and work more efficiently.

This means we can pass savings on to you and give you great prices on a wide range of ecological surveys whilst not compromising on quality.

Secondly, we provide a money-back guarantee. In the event of your local planning authority not accepting our report, we will give you your money back.

Thirdly, we are able to provide a paid upgrade service for clients with very tight deadlines. You can choose to upgrade to our next day report service and we will have your ecology survey report ready by 5pm the day after your survey.

What do Our Clients Say?

You can read through hundreds of reviews of our friendly ecological consultants on our reviews page, but if you don’t have time to read through all of those, here are a few selected kind words from our clients.

Natalie and her team were super and all clearly passionate about their work. Natalie was extremely friendly, helpful and communicative prior to the surveys commencing and happy to explain the process to me whilst the surveys were taking place. Natalie’s report arrived promptly after the final survey was complete. Thank you so much.Mary Baker

I was delighted with the professional manner in which the survey was booked, planned and carried out. My extensive search for a suitable firm to provide the report required by a Mortgage Lender led me to ARBTECH and the professionalism conveyed by reviewing the firm’s website was certainly backed up by their performance and comprehensive survey report.Chris Davies

Lauren carried out a Preliminary Roost Assessment for our house at 2 Elm Close, Leatherhead, Surrey KT22 8HA on 1 November 2016, Lauren is knowledgeable and gave good advice. She was friendly, and carried out her work in a professional manner. An excellent service.Chris Goddard

We are pleased with the report and the very professional manner in which it was conducted. Although we knew what the outcome would be the presentation for the planning application is very beneficial and professional.David R Davies

Common Questions

Still have questions before you contact us for a quote? No problem. These are some of the common questions we get asked about ecological consultancy.

Which types of ecology surveys do you provide?

We provide a wide range of ecological surveys including preliminary ecological appraisals, biodiversity net gain, extended phase 1 habitat surveys, ecological walkover surveys, and protected species surveys.

Are your ecological consultants qualified?

Yes! All our team members are highly qualified and have years of experience.

How do I choose an ecological consultancy?

There are quite a few companies out there claiming to be the best. Just read our about us page to see how we are actually different and read some of our reviews (we’ve got hundreds) to see why we are the best. Better yet, do an Internet search for ‘Arbtech reviews’ and see for yourself that no other ecological consultancy can match us.

Choosing an ecological consultancy comes down to finding a reliable company that covers your area with experienced staff and great prices. That’s us!

What do I need an ecology consultancy for?

An Ecology consultancy carries out a wide range of work. A common situation for needing an ecology consultancy is having a plot of land that you want to do development on but you want to check if the land is suitable for development. You may want to check if there are various plants or animals present on the site. In that case we could do a preliminary ecological appraisal to check that for you.

There are lots of other projects we could help with too. We can do reports for BREEAM assessments, help you earn cost-effective ECO1-4 credits for your development, or carry out a biodiversity net gain plan.
