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.

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.
