Tree surgeon awarded 'gold standard' in tree care

A local tree surgery company has been earned an accreditation known as the 'gold standard' in tree care.

Jonathan (Jono) Le Maistre and his team of specialists at Jonathan Le Maistre Tree Surgery have been handed ARB Approved Contractor (ArbAC) status by the Arboricultural Association.

The company received the national ‘tree surgery’ competence accreditation after being tested on all aspects of tree-care business operation and management.

“Achievement of this standard was incredibly important to me and the team at Jonathan Le Maistre Tree Surgery,” Jono Le Maistre said. “We have all worked so hard to ensure we are meeting and exceeding the targets set.

"Being the only Channel Island tree management company that holds this prestigious accolade is testament to the fact we invest heavily in our staff and ensure they have the qualifications, skills and expertise required. Working to these standards is absolutely vital for the safe and correct management of our natural environment.”
