How do I decide on the best Tree Surgeon for the job?
Once you have received your quotations, it is best to look for the following from your trusted local tree surgeon. You should receive a full specification with clear and full details of the work to be undertaken. It should state whether VAT is included and what will happen to the timber and tree stumps.
It should also be clear who is responsible for obtaining planning permission if the tree is protected under a Tree Preservation Order (TPO). A risk assessment should be carried out to protect both you and your property.
Companies should show evidence of insurance of 2 million pounds and above. It is also compulsory for staff to have an NPTC/Lantra Awards certificates for chainsaw use.
You can be confident that any of the Bark local tree surgeons listed will provide you with a good service and take care of your trees.
Do I need permission for tree removal?
If you are looking to remove a tree, you need to check with your local authority that the tree is not subject to a Tree Preservation Order (TPO). Trees can provide an aesthetic appeal, add to the areas biodiversity and also form part of conservation order. Your tree surgeon can offer advice on planning applications if required.
Can I get a tree preservation order (TPO) removed?
The only way it can be removed is by the council. Reasons to remove a TPO order include there was a mistake with the original order and if the tree is dead, dying or diseased.
What should I look for in a Tree Surgeon?
Tree surgery can be dangerous work so it important that your tree surgeon is suitably qualified. Not only can it be dangerous to the individual, poor workmanship can lead to damaged property and long-term damage to the trees themselves.
There are two recognised schemes certifying the competence of arborists through examination and regular re-assessment. These are the Arboricultural Association (AA) and the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA).
Before choosing a professional, you may also want to ask for examples of past work, which could include images of different types of tree surgery they have performed in the past. You could also look at their profile page on Bark, and Bark can show you tree surgery reviews from past customers too as well as examples of work that they have completed.
What services do Tree Surgeons offer?
Tree surgeons can help you with a large number of tree services which include:
Tree pruning– They can reduce the size of your tree which helps to introduce more sunlight into your garden. In the same way that shrubs need pruning, trees need annual pruning to make their branches and stumps stronger and promotes new growth. Arborists may undertake tree surgery on ash trees, elm trees, beech trees, walnut trees and holly trees amongst others.
Crown shaping – tree surgeons can help tame a tree that is overgrown to give it a more uniformed shape.
Tree removals – Tree surgeons can undertake tree removals. They will reduce its size from the top and then work down to the trunk. They can then remove the tree stump.
Tree felling – When the trees are diseased, dead or dangerous, tree surgeons will undertake tree removal.
Tree planting – tree surgeons can also advise on choosing the best tree for a particular location and give advice on a management programme to ensure the tree stays healthy.
