Did you know that tree surgery is considered one of the most dangerous jobs in the world?
Combining proximity to large and often unstable trees with working at great heights, the role of a tree surgeon involves managing the safety and presentation of trees of all sizes and across all outside spaces – from commercial estates to public parks, private gardens, and more.
With outdoor maintenance such a versatile and broad industry, we’ve created this blog to focus specifically on the roles of our tree surgeons in Chelmsford – sharing three reasons to hire a tree surgeon and the value you get from their expertise and attention to detail.
1. Tree surgeons have access to all the necessary, industry-leading equipment
With tree surgery such a complex job which involves working at height, managing large trees, removing, and felling branches and entire tree trunks, and more, it follows that those who work in the industry need access to the very best equipment.
Professional tree surgeons will bring along their own tools which enable them to get the job done to the highest possible standard and with optimum safety in mind – ensuring that if a tree needs to be felled the stump is also ground down and removed to clear the space and leave each client with a clean canvas landscape. For clients, the benefit of this is that you don’t need to worry about access or anything complicated details like that – your tree surgeon will bring everything they need to get the job done.
2. Health and safety standards
Health and safety is of the utmost importance in the world of tree surgery – with felling, pruning, branch removal, and other services all including work at height and around often dangerous power tools and unpredictable tree limbs.
When you book a professional tree surgeon, they will bring all the PPE equipment required to get the job done within legal and industry standards and will put cordons and other blocks in place to protect both their own team and you as the client from any falling debris or tree branches.
In addition to on site health and safety considerations, we will also recommend the best steps to ensure that your trees and ground maintenance remain in the best possible condition for long-term safety, both for you and those around you.
3. Professional advice and experience
Finally, one of the best things about hiring a professional tree surgeon is their extensive experience. When a tree surgeon visits a site, they will be able to diagnose any concerns relating to the trees on site and will create a plan to remedy any issues which could worsen or lead to lasting damage.
In addition to this, many tree surgeons will also provide insight and advice on how to care for the grounds around your trees – with the Essex Tree Brothers team combining direct tree surgery services with our maintenance tasks and advice.
