Top UK arboriculture businesses well positioned to capitalise on well-funded tree planting funding initiatives

Horticulture Week's Top 30 Arboriculture Businesses ranking for 2020 charts the fortunes of the sector.

The arboriculture industry stands to play a key role in Government’s plans for a Green Recovery in the wake of the COVID pandemic.

The newly released England Tree Strategy promises to increase tree planting efforts to 30,000 hectares per year by 2025, paving the way to the country achieving zero carbon emissions by 2050. Its proposed planning reforms also look to ensure that every new street in the country is lined with trees.

Funding for tree planting programmes has never been more abundant yet, arboriculture and horticulture professionals are keen to stress the same message: that it must be the right tree, in the right place and with the right support.

According to a report by Oxford Economics, arboriculture supported the employment of 20,900 people in 2017, contributing £709m to the UK economy as well as £149m in taxes and NICs. However, the sector faces challenges in attracting new blood to the industry, as well as tackling ever evolving threats from invasive pests and diseases.

Horticulture Week’s annual Top Arboriculture Businesses report tracks the biggest businesses by turnover in the UK arboriculture sector as well as providing key market intelligence.
