Choosing the Best

Norfolk Tree Surgeon

What to Look For, What to Avoid

You’d be forgiven for thinking that choosing a
high-quality Norfolk tree surgeon would be
easy. In reality however, narrowing things
down to the very best operator in the business
can be tricky to say the least. Right now, there
are more tree surgeons and tree management

services up and  running across the region
than ever before. And while most are doing
a great job, there are some that stand out as
genuine market leaders, while others would
be better avoided at all costs.

The question therefore being how to avoid the latter and hire only the best?

A Growing Industry

growing_industry_graph

The tree surgery industry itself has been expanding for some
time now, as demand for elite Norfolk tree
management services continues to grow. These
days, those with tree management projects or
long-term contractual needs are no longer willing

to take on hack-and-slash’ amateurs for the job.
Increasingly, standards are improving across
the industry as a whole, but finding the best
tree surgeons for your own project means
bearing a few key considerations in mind.

Once you know what to look for and what to avoid, making the best possible choice becomes much easier.

“ What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another ”

Making the Right Choice

Where to start? Well, the key lies in carrying out a few simple checks, in order to assess both competence and compatibility with your needs. The good news being that most of the checks can be carried out online in no more than a few minutes and will immediately help narrow down the options available to you.

Specialism

For example, it’s important to acknowledge the fact that not every Norfolk tree surgeon has the same skill-set or specialism. Some firms specialise in large commercial site clearances, some are more about public park arboreal work and then there are those that focus on smaller domestic jobs.

If the company’s specialism (or combination thereof) doesn’t match the specifics of your job, you can’t expect to be provided with optimum service or left with the best results. Match your exact needs to the right tree surgeon don’t do things the other way around.

Experience

Track record and experience also count for a lot as this is the quintessential example of an industry where practice makes perfect. You can’t expect to set up one day with a chainsaw, a harness and a website and expect to be a world-class tree surgeon by the end of the year. It just doesn’t happen. Instead, it takes serious time and commitment to develop the skills, talents and competencies required to get the job done properly.

Experience doesn’t always guarantee better performance, but you can’t excel in this business without it.

Environmental Regard

Target Trees has the utmost respect for the wider environment the same can’t always be said for other Norfolk tree surgeons. We’re committed to never beginning even the simplest of jobs without first fully considering the potential environmental impact.

If there’s an environmentally friendly way of getting the job done, that’s the only way we’ll do it. We firmly believe that tree surgery should be carried out with the benefit of the environment in mind not to its detriment.

Case Studies

It’s advisable to only ever work with those that have a rich and detailed portfolio of work, featuring real-life cases studies of the jobs they’ve carried out to date. Rather than simply taking a tree surgeon at face value, it makes sense to instead look for evidence of their past and on-going successes, which shouldn’t be difficult to provide.

If there’s no evidence as to what they’re capable of, you’re taking a risk
by working with them.

Avoiding Cowboys and Amateur Hour

The above represents a blueprint for tracking down and securing the best possible tree surgeons for your
job. But at the same time, there are  also a fair few red-flag warning signs to be on the
lookout for, which usually indicate brands to avoid.

Topping and Lopping

For example, if a firm uses the phrase
topping and lopping’, this immediately
confirms that they are not working in
accordance with British Standard
BS3998. This approach to tree
surgery is lazy, destructive
and downright dangerous.

Jack of All Trades

If a tree surgery group also provides
patio cleaning, fencing, home painting
and standard gardening services,
they’re clearly not a dedicated specialist
in the field. Professional tree surgery
takes total and on-going dedication
and simply cannot be squeezed in’
among other complementary
services.

Contact Details

Always be sure to check the brand’s
contact information, before making
your final decision. If they do not
have a registered business address,
a landline (ideally local) telephone
number and business email address,
you could be looking at a back-
bedroom amateur operation.

Verbal Quotations

When a tree surgeon is unwilling to offer
concrete quotations on paper, there’s every
chance you could be stung hard when the
final bill arrives. It’s the kind of archaic
practice that should have been driven out
of the industry decades ago, but continues
unabated across the UK. If it’s not on paper,
don’t accept it.

Cash-in-Hand Services

Likewise, offering services for cash with no
receipts or documentation is just as illegal
in this business as any other. The fact that
a service provider is willing to operate
illegally should be all the justification you
need for avoiding them.

Insurance

Last but not least, public liability insurance
is an absolute must when it comes to
avoiding cowboy operators. Their website
should make it clear whether they are
licensed and insured to be doing what they
do, but it’s always worth asking if you are in
any way unsure.
