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.

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?

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.

Large trees can cause problems if they grow too close to a house or building. Ideally, a large tree should stand at least 20 feet away from a building. If a tree is growing too close to a building, it can cause dampness within the walls and the roots may damage foundations, compromising the structural integrity of the house. Trees which stand close to a building may need to be removed so it’s best to consult a tree surgeon to find out your options.

You can choose to remove a tree at any time of year, but if you want to limit the impact on wildlife, it’s best to cut down or remove your tree in winter when wildlife is less active. You may also find that tree removal is cheapest in the winter as demand for tree removal is lower at this time of year.

Many people choose to remove trees simply because they want extra space in their garden or the tree doesn’t fit with their garden theme. However, there are a few other instances where it may be advised to remove a tree from your property. This includes if the tree has an illness or a fungus growth, if the tree is infested with pests, or if the tree is causing problems by growing too close to your property.
