What it takes to provide a top-notch tree surgery service. 

Let’s face it, tree surgery takes knowledge and skill. It should be left to the professionals that have the experience to take on such a complex service. From knowledge about local laws to knowing how to reduce the crown on a tree, this service is varied and quite unique. 

Want to provide the best tree surgery services in the business? Here’s how: 

Knowledge: Make sure you’re in tune with the most up to date local legislation including tree preservation orders, conservation areas etc.

Skills: Having practical skills is essential in providing an exceptional tree surgery service. Tree felling, crown management and stunt maintenance all require practical skills combined with knowledge to ensure that they’re done correctly.  

Qualifications: Having a formal qualification in Arboriculture will give you the edge when it comes to tree surgery. Understanding the plants, and especially the trees, that you’re working with will make your job that much easier and ensure that your customers get good results from your tree surgery services. 

Insurance is a must: Ensure that you have Public Liability Insurance covering all work that’s undertaken, this reduces your risk and ensures your customers have peace of mind. 

Tools: Having the right tools will ensure that all of your knowledge and skills are maximised when you provide a tree surgery service. It also ensures that your service is efficient and safe and the results are of the highest quality. 

OH & S: Ensure that your occupational health and safety practices are on point at all times. There’s nothing like an incident to smear your reputation within the industry.  

Understand what your customer wants: Like any service, ensure that you gather all the required information from your customer and understand what their desired outcome from the tree surgery service is. Cutting down a customer’s favourite tree will lead to a very unhappy customer.
