The job of a tree surgeon is a highly specialised one and requires high levels of training, dedication and the right equipment. An arborist will be able to help at all stages of a tree's life from planting right through to the safe removal of one that has died or become unsafe.
When it comes to planting, an arborist will ensure that the tree is planted in soil and conditions that meet all of its needs, giving it the best chances of survival. They will have made sure that it received the correct care and maintenance before planting, helping to ensure that it gets off to the best start possible and that it will thrive in its new setting.
If you have a tree that needs maintenance, it is essential that you call in a professional tree surgeon to make the tree safe. A tree surgeon will have all the safety equipment and will have received the correct training to ensure that branches are removed in the safest way possible. They will be able to identify any branches that have died or are unsafe and will be able to bring them down in a safe manner. If the tree has completely died they will be able to bring the whole thing down before it comes down in inclement weather, causing potential devastation around it, particularly if it is near a house, cars or even fences used to keep livestock in.
Not only are tree surgeons able to help maintain trees but they are also able to help if your tree is struggling. They will be able to tell if a particular branch is causing strain and problems to the rest of the tree and remove to ensure the tree stays alive for as long as possible. They will also be able to remove any other growth that may be causing issues to the tree, such as ivy, or provide a bit of extra support such as bolts and wires that, once in place, will give the extra reinforcement the tree needs to go on growing.
