Beechwood Maintain Approved Contractor Status



Following a rigorous 2 day audit, Beechwood Trees and Landscapes Ltd have been awarded retention of the full Arboricultural Association Approved Contractor status; the only comprehensive accreditation scheme for professional tree surgery businesses in the United Kingdom.

Recognising high standards of tree works, safety and efficiency, the Arboricultural Association Approved Contractor scheme offers a benchmark for arboricultural contracting throughout the UK and Ireland. The scheme is increasingly required by local authorities and other large commercial organisations, acting as a quality mark assuring the client of good quality tree care undertaken safely and efficiently.

Beechwood Trees and Landscapes Ltd was started by Simon Rotheram in 1998 and is also celebrating 20 years of business.

Operating mainly in the Midlands area, but also covering the UK, the company employs over 30 staff and has an excellent resource of modern plant and equipment, which are used to deliver on the many contracts held by the business.

Clients include: local authorities, housing associations, schools, construction/developers, land agents and a large residential customer base. The teams complete tree surgery operations, from an individual specimen tree, right through to complete site clearance and de-vegetation projects.

Simon Rotheram, Manging Director of Beechwood Trees and Landscapes Ltd was thrilled: “we have been an Arb Approved Contractor for in excess of 10 years, but we’re delighted to be successfully audited again for this accreditation and to be recognised for our efforts. It’s a great accolade for us and means we’re be able to promote the company as having reached the highest standards in arboriculture. The whole team deserves to be proud of this and can now show our customers that we’re dedicated to providing a quality service.”

Stewart Wardrop, Chief Executive of the Association commented: “The Arboricultural Association was pleased to re-award Beechwood Trees and Landscapes Ltd Approved Contractor status, having successfully completed all areas of our stringent assessment. This is the only comprehensive accreditation scheme for tree work in the UK and certifies approved businesses as experts in a range of work.”

The Arboricultural Association Approved Contractor scheme has been setting the standards for tree surgery work for more than 40 years. The Arboricultural industry is not regulated by government but has a high accident potential and a responsibility to care for the UK’s rich tree heritage.
