About Us


ARB UK was founded in 2015 when qualified arborist James Prior relocated to Oxford and saw an opportunity to bring his expertise and passion for trees to the local community. With over two decades of experience as a tree surgeon, James has honed his skills in both residential and large-scale commercial projects, including extensive work in Welsh forests. His vision for ARB UK was simple yet ambitious: to deliver exceptional tree care services while fostering a deep respect for nature and the environment.
