Debating whether your trees need a prune? Before you head outside and have a go yourself, consider the benefits of hiring the services of a professional tree surgeon.
The first thing you need to ask yourself is have you got the right tools? A stepladder and that rusty hacksaw hanging in the shed won’t be up to the task. Even if you know someone with a chainsaw, has it been properly maintained and have you been trained to use it safely?
Professional tree surgeons have the right tools for every job, which means they will get the work done quickly and safely. They also have the equipment to get rid of waste, by slicing up logs and chipping up the leaves and branches.
Once people start tackling a tree, they soon realise that tree surgery is harder than it looks. In fact, it can be very dangerous, sometimes fatal, so is it really worth the risk?
Professional tree surgeons carry out risk assessments and think safety first. Only then do they start the job, using a wide variety of equipment such as hard hats, ear defenders, ropes, heavy-duty power tools and ladders. They will also have the appropriate qualifications and insurance cover.
Tree surgery is not just about having the right equipment. A tree surgeon is experienced and trained in identifying trees and then understanding the best methods for pruning and maintenance. This knowledge will make sure that your tree is trimmed in the correct way to maintain its health and improve its appearance.
From increasing the amount of light entering your garden to increasing the amount of fruit produced by your apple and cherry trees, tree surgeons will be able to offer honest and expert advice.
If in doubt, leave tree surgery to the professionals.
