FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do I need permission to cut down a tree in my garden?
You need permission from the council if the trees in question are protected by Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs) or are located within a conservation area, regardless of whether you are a private property owner. It is always best to check with your local council for clearance to avoid any future disputes or penalties.
What is a Tree Preservation Order?
Tree Preservation Orders are legal orders devised by local councils in England to protect specific trees, groups of trees, woodlands, or wildlife. Tree Preservation Orders are put in place to prevent trees from being cut down, topped, lopped, uprooted, or purposely destroyed without the permission of the local council.
How do you pick a Tree Surgeon?
You should check their credentials and accreditations. Tree surgery is not regulated in the UK, but there are legal qualifications a tree surgeon must have to ensure they are competent to climb a tree with a rope and harness and use specialized equipment such as chainsaws. It is recommended that the tree surgeon has at least one of the qualifications, such as a City & Guilds NPTC qualification or a Level 2/3 certificate in Arboriculture, or a Diploma in Forestry and Arboriculture. Other factors in picking a tree surgeon include checking their previous work, asking about their experience level, verifying if they are fully insured, and, finally getting a price quote for your task. As long as they can prove their certifications, demonstrate that they are fully insured, and show previous work, you should be in the hands of a professional.
How much does a tree surgeon cost in the UK?
The average cost of a tree surgeon in the UK is roughly between £300 and £5000. This cost depends on the size, location, condition, and the number of trees that need removal. Prices may also vary depending on the company’s size and expertise. It’s always best practice to ask for an in-person quote, as the tree surgeon will be able to price the job more accurately; over-the-phone quotes will almost always be estimates.
When is the best time to prune a tree?
Light trimming can be conducted throughout the year. However, for cases where you need to remove long, dead branches or significantly reduce the size of a tree, it is ideal to wait for the tree’s dormant period. This typically occurs during late autumn or winter, and these time periods accelerate the tree’s healing process.
