Carrying out tree felling and aerial tree operations from a rope and harness are dangerous activities. They should not be undertaken without appropriate training and experience. Poorly planned and executed tree work can result in harm to people, property, the environment as well as the trees themselves. James is qualfied by NPTC (City and Guilds) to carry out aerial and ground-based tree work and carries public liability insurance to £5 million. Arborglyph Tree Services Ltd use appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including chainsaw trousers, chainsaw boots, head, eye and ear protection in line with European standards. For tree surveys and inspections, we also carry Professional indemnity insurance to £1 million.


Improper tree work can compromise the health and appearance of trees. All our work is carried out in accordance with the relevant British Standards (BS 3998:2010 Tree work. Recommendations). These standards exist in order to ensure that the long-term health of trees is considered. 

All equipment meets with PUWER (The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998). Our climbing equipment is insepcted in line with LOLER (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998).
