Information on Tree Surgeon Services
What is a Tree Surgeon?

Tree Surgeons are in demand to carry out: clearance of fallen trees, proactive tree management (for example to prevent them causing property damage), tree clearance from sites of building work or stump grinding or removal.

However, a tree surgeon is more correctly called an Arborist or, less commonly, an Arboriculturist, which suggests they have a bit more in their repertoire than chopping down / up trees.

Arborioculture is defined as management, cultivation and study of trees, shrubs and vines. The skill set includes being able to identify and treat diseases in trees.

Working Safely with Trees

A key part of all the qualifications that a tree surgeon can attain (see City and Guilds) is the health and safety aspect. There is far more to being a Tree Surgeon than owning a chainsaw and a set of ladders, and having a head for heights. Training not only covers  “how to” but also "How to SAFELY".

For this reason we would always recommend that you employ a trained, qualified and insured professional Tree Surgeon for tree or hedge work.

As a basic rule; if you need to get on a ladder to carry out the work then the tree is too large for you to prune.
