Employing a tree surgeon to look after your trees is one of the best ways that you can have to ensure that your trees remain in the best of health and always look their best. Professional tree surgeons will be fully qualified arborists, and not just some guy’s with a chainsaw and some rope, so it is important to do your due diligence and check their qualifications and insurance before you take them on to take care of your trees
The Health and Safety Executive specifies that,
“…clients engaging contractors to undertake tree work need to carefully check they have the necessary skill and competence. Tree work is hazardous; to be done safely it requires properly trained and experienced people… Arboricultural trade associations can supply details of approved contractors and information to help you choose a competent tree work contractor…”
There are five main points to consider when thinking about employing the services of a local tree surgeon so that your trees get well looked after and you don’t spend a fortune on a bad job.
