Company info

The Arbor Barber has built its reputation on high quality work carried out with pride and professionalism. We are a friendly Brighton based tree surgeon company operating in the Sussex area covering all aspects of tree work and hedge trimming.

Whether you have a small garden or a big project to undertake we offer fully trained and experienced tree surgeons to carry out a wide range of services, ensuring that the health, safety and character of your trees are maintained.

The Arbor Barber is led by Iain Palmer, who after qualifying as a tree surgeon ten years ago gained experience working for different companies, managing teams on a wide variety of projects in the south of England, France and Belgium. In 2004 he attained the Royal Forestry Society Certificate in Arboriculture in order to advance theoretical knowledge in areas of tree biology, classification, tree management, diagnosis of disease, tree health and tree law.

We carry out our services efficiently and safely, always operating within the current laws and regulations governing this area of work. We will leave the area clean and tidy and remove all waste. Waste is either recycled in local composting sites or turned into wood chip which will be used to provide a carbon neutral source of energy.

Overall, we aim to provide the best service we can at a fair price.
