About us

We are a team of ecology, landscape and arboriculture consultants servicing London and the South of England.

David Archer Associates is an arboricultural, landscape and ecological consultancy that has supported clients since 2009. We love what we do, which is why our team is made up of individuals that are some of the most accredited in the industry. With an impressive 100+ years’ experience between us, our arboriculture consultants, landscape and ecology team have worked on a wide range of projects across the years, from smaller private clients through to large scale and high profile projects for National Trust, English Heritage and the Home Office.

We might have been around for years, but we’re always ahead of the game

knowing the latest technologies, innovations and legislation. That’s why we’re often asked to speak at industry events, represent our clients during planning appeals or give our advice for specific ecological or arboricultural issues.

At David Archer Associates we don’t just turn up, do our bit and go;

we always look at the broader situation, identifying future problems before they arise, helping to save time and money for our clients in the long run. With a Head Office in the heart of rural Sussex and our team spread out across the whole of the South of England, our consultants can cover areas including Kent, Northamptonshire, Surrey and more and are never more than an hour away from our clients’ sites.

We’re a friendly bunch too, always making sure to go that extra mile for our clients.

We know the commercial pressures and challenges our clients face, and so our team always aims to be as available and flexible as possible – allowing you to focus on the project at hand.

About the David Archer Associates Team

We’re a friendly, close-knit company. In the 12 years we’ve been operating, we’ve had only one team member move on to explore new pastures.
Ethical values underpin our business, ensuring we always have a solid commitment to our clients, the project team, society and the environment.
We are keen to share our knowledge and can often be found speaking at industry events, working pro-bono with charities or delivering training sessions for our clients.
With accreditations ranging from Named Ecologists on Natural England mitigation licences for hazel dormice and badgers to a Registered Consultant of the Arboricultural Association, the team has eight professional accreditations between them.
Our founder, David Archer, has been in the tree business since the start of his career in 1975. You won’t find a tree question that he doesn’t know the answer to.

Working with DAA is a pleasure. They are a well informed team who are able to give practical advice and suggest amendments and alterations where problems might arise. All team members are pleasant to deal with, respond promptly to questions and enquiries and are comfortable working as part of a multi disciplinary team where required. I would recommend DAA to anyone with an Arboricultural or Ecology issue.
