8 great tips to consider when employing a tree surgeon

When looking for a tree surgeon in Norwich, you should be looking for a company or individual to carry specific credentials to completely protect yourself in the event of a problem occurring. You are completely within your rights to ask about the company accreditations and the type of qualifications that they possess.

  • Ask your tree surgeon if they possess accreditations and are linked or approved by any bodies or membership schemes, such as the Arb Association or arbapproved.com
  • Get a detailed quote from your tree surgeon that you are considering and feel free to bring up any issues or questions to the quote that you do not understand
  • If you want complete satisfaction hen you should probably hire a specialist (Arborist) who will be able to cover every single aspect of tree surgery
  • Do they carry an up to date loler inspectors certificate (This is a certificate which proves that they have had their equipment annually checked for safety)
  • Make sure that you fully understand who will be on your property and get familiar with your tree surgeon to establish a clear understanding of all works to be completed including time scales
  • Does your tree surgeon carry a waste carriers license? Your tree surgeon should carry this and please be aware if your tree surgeon can not provide proof of this license
  • The National Proficiency Tests Council (NPTC) is the new level of tree surgeon competence, formerly City & Guilds Group. If your tree surgeon does not carry this card to prove they have been tested, then please be aware as this is an industry-standard level which should be the minimum requirement to prove a tree surgeon’s abilities.
  • First aid at work, in the most worst-case scenario, the first aider on-site is essential to minimise the effects of a potential medical issue.

What services should you expect from your local tree surgeon?

A tree surgeon is a professional who specialises in the care and maintenance of trees. They are trained to diagnose and treat issues that trees may face, as well as to remove trees that are beyond repair or pose a danger to people or property. Tree surgeons offer a variety of services, including pruning, tree removal, planting, and emergency tree care.

One of the most common services provided by tree surgeons is pruning. Pruning involves carefully removing branches from a tree in order to improve its shape, structure, and health. There are several reasons why a tree may need to be pruned. For example, if a tree has branches that are diseased or dead, removing them can help prevent the spread of the problem to the rest of the tree. Pruning can also help to improve the aesthetic appearance of a tree, as well as to increase the amount of sunlight and air circulation that reaches the tree’s leaves.

Another important service provided by tree surgeons is tree removal. There are many reasons why a tree may need to be removed, such as if it is dying or poses a safety hazard. Tree surgeons are trained to remove trees in a safe and controlled manner, using specialised equipment and techniques. They are also able to assess the risks associated with removing a tree and take the necessary precautions to minimize those risks.

In addition to pruning and tree removal, tree surgeons also offer planting services. If you are planning to add trees to your property, a tree surgeon can help you choose the right species for your location and provide guidance on how to properly plant and care for the trees. They can also help with the design and layout of your landscaping, ensuring that the trees are positioned in a way that maximises their health and beauty.

Another important service provided by tree surgeons is emergency tree care. If a tree has been damaged in a storm or other natural disaster, a tree surgeon can assess the damage and determine the best course of action. This may include removing damaged branches or even the entire tree, if necessary. Tree surgeons are also equipped to handle dangerous or hazardous situations, such as if a tree has fallen on a power line or is blocking a roadway.

Overall, tree surgeons offer a wide range of services to help ensure the health and safety of trees. Whether you need routine pruning, tree removal, planting, or emergency tree care, a tree surgeon can provide the expertise and equipment needed to get the job done.

In addition to these standard services, your tree surgeon may be further qualified which would then be considered as an arborist, arborists are able to take on advanced tree surgeon skills which involve larger or more specific demands.

These include such specialist services such as forestry management, tree surveys for land & building development and mortgage reports.
