Arbormasters: About Us

The original Arbormaster tree surgeon company was founded back in 1954 by Derek Simmonds so I guess it’s fair to say we know this area pretty well. We always laugh that the company is older than many of the trees we are asked to cut down or look after.

Arbormaster has flourished as a family business and Derek would be very proud of what the company has achieved. The knowledge for tree work has been passed through the generations. New techniques are particularly the new technology means it is a totally different company to the one Derek started. But some things haven’t changed. The quality of our work, our passion for the job and our focus on customer satisfaction haven’t changed in 60 years.

We work for local authorities in the London boroughs and cover all the surrounding areas such as Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, Surrey, Berkshire and, Essex.

Each staff member is kitted out with the most modern personal protection equipment. We comply with LOWLER regulations, (lifting operations lifting equipment regulations), and power regulations (provision and use of work equipment regulations). We also have an ongoing health and safety programme that operates across the entire company to ensure we always operate using best practice.

  • All of our tree work is carried out to BS3998 and BS5837.
  • We carry Public Liability insurance up to £10 million.
  • Full Products Liability insurance.
  • All of our operatives meet the NPTC requirements.
  • Every staff member is CSCS registered.

Arbormaster has the most up to date equipment from specialized climbing equipment to large excavating and dozing equipment. Recent work includes work on major projects like HS2 while at the other extreme we are about to trim the trees in Mavis Brown’s garden (which we have been doing for the past 20 years). We have qualified staff in cherry picker and crane operation for use in tree dismantling. We also have our processing yard where we chip or shred all tree arisings for use in heating fuels and landscaping projects.
