Our commitment to our tree surgeon and forestry customers


To listen to you

We know arborists and foresters are as varied as the trees they manage. So are their businesses, and the risks they face.

Our policies are tailored to meet your needs, from a policy for the self-employed, to more complex cover for larger firms who wish to insure plant and machinery. We ensure your Arborisk policy is right for you.


To advise you

You wouldn’t expect your customers to take advice on their trees from a “Jack of all trades”. Why should insurance be any different?

As a chartered insurance broker, we have the training, expertise and ethics to make sure your policy is fit for purpose.


To stick with you

If the worst happened, and you were sued by a customer or injured worker, some insurance brokers would leave you to face the claim alone. Not us.

Our dedicated claims team will help you through the entire process. They’ll work to resolve your claim quickly, with minimal hassle, in your best interests.

What our customers say…

I thought your professionalism and clear explanations of the terminology over the phone were excellent.

Just wanted to say what a great job Helen did. Pretty refreshing to speak directly to a human and not have to press 1 for this and dial 3 for that. Helen was friendly, helpful and very professional.

Arborist businesses are prone to theft of vehicles and equipment, due to the high value of these items. Millions of pounds of equipment are estimated to be stolen every year. Store equipment in a secure premise, with added security measures if possible, such as CCTV. For handheld tools, do not leave in vans overnight and remember to close doors and lock vehicles when on a job. Our guide provides some advice on security. #treesurgeonsuk ... See MoreSee Less
