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.

What do you love most about your job?

We love the satisfaction of carrying out work for customers and having positive feedback and seeing that we've made a difference to the garden. As a husband and wife company we really thrive on the positive feedback.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Dominic previously worked with SSE doing large scale tree felling/clearance by the electricity lines. He decided that work wasn't for him and we set up the business as there is much more job satisfaction doing private garden work than for a large PLC company.

Why should our clients choose you?

Clients should choose us as we really do have pride in our work, as well our team. Not only is our work professional, we also like to make sure every job is personal and we will always leave the garden in immaculate condition after finishing the tree work.
One example of this, which really shows us how thoughtful our team is, was when a customer had 50 plant pots and gnomes under where the tree was being cut. Before moving these out of the way, a member of our team took a picture to ensure once the area was swept and made tidy, all the pots and gnomes got put back where they were.

What changes have you made to keep your customers safe from Covid-19?

We have made changes throughout Covid-19. Please do not feel offended if our guys don't accept a cup of tea.
When Dominic makes a site visit to provide a quote he will wear a mask and ensure he maintains good social distancing between yourself and him.
All quotes and invoices are doing via email so there is no paperwork changing hands.

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.
