Below is a list of questions that are frequently asked by our customers.
Q: What do our tree surgeons do?
A: Our Nottingham Tree surgeons are experts at reshaping, felling, pruning and trimming all types of trees that help to make outdoor areas a safer environment and more visually pleasing. Tree surgery is a dangerous and risky profession where workers often use chainsaws, power tools, rigging, pulleys and climbing equipment. Tree surgeons need to be fit, healthy and proficient climbers as they move around trees to cut away dead branches, reduce trees in height, remove trees altogether that pose danger to buildings and human life.
Q: Can I do my own Tree Surgery?
A: Please reconsider against this as tree surgery is a highly skilled job. Many people try to complete this kind of work to save money and this can be a big mistake. Ask yourself this question. If you have an accident and need time off work to recover from, how much would that cost you? The tools we use such as chainsaws and stump grinders are specialist machinery that should only be in the hands of trained tree surgeons and arborists. A lot of people hire this equipment and have no right to be using it and the hire companies in my opinion should not be hiring it out to novices. Stay safe and get the professionals to do the job, we are fully insured, take away all the debris and nice people to do business with.
Q: What do you take into account when pricing up a tree surgery job?
A: We look at all the different aspects and take everything into consideration.
Size of the tree
Our initial survey and consultation that will be carried out by our professional tree surgeon will determine your tree’s height, together with the trunk and crown width. The bigger the tree is, the more pruning and trimming work will need to be completed along with any specialised height gaining equipment such as cherry pickers or even cranes on occasions, which can considerably raise the price of your tree surgeon cost. It’s all down to the scale of the job.
Access to the Job
Having good accessibility to the tree or trees in question can have a significant impact on our quotation. For example, if trees are difficult and hard-to-reach then we may need to utilise some of our expensive tree surgeon equipment to cater for and reach some parts, which will also have the extra added time factor involved, and a more time consuming exercise to clear all the excess debris created.
Type of Tree work in question.
Tree removal work, tree pruning, crown lifting and shaping, pollarding and tree height reductions, stump removals and stump grinding, all these services and maintenance tasks are individually priced for FREE during our site visit. It all depends on the skills required to complete your particular tree related work in Nottingham.
Location of your Trees
If you have a tree that is situated near to a road, wall or fencing, then usually they are most likely easy to remove. On the other hand trees that are sited close to buildings, utility power lines and public places, could require a more in depth effort to remove, trim, prune or even sectionally dismantle with rigging, pulleys or heavy machinery
