Registered Consultants will give objective advice in accordance with the instructions received in order to provide you, the client, with a clear understanding of the implications for your trees in whatever circumstances they grow and in relation to your aspirations or concerns.
Arboricultural Association Registered Consultants do not undertake work to trees (such as pruning, planting or felling) but will provide an independent schedule and specification of work if you require them to do so, against which a suitable contractor may quote or work.
Clients who are seeking to engage a named Registered Consultant personally, rather than instructing their wider organisation (if they have one), are advised to ensure that the AARC concerned is providing the required service rather than a company employee. A complete list of Registered Consultants is provided within the Directory.
Fees should be agreed between client and consultant at the outset of a commission. Rates may depend on the type of work to be undertaken and may vary from region to region. Most Arboricultural Association Registered Consultants operate over the whole of the United Kingdom and some beyond.
