Rogue Tree Surgeons

Rogue Tree Surgeons

Tree Surgery is a specialist trade and involves far more than someone with a chainsaw. Tree surgeons undergo thorough training in a wide range of fields including chainsaw maintenance, chainsaw use, specialist climbing, aerial rescue, equipment maintenance and arboriculture. The danger to people and property is very high if tree surgeons do not have the appropriate training, experience and equipment.
Unfortunately rogue trader tree surgeons have been operating around the UK for many years. Here are some tips for making sure you don’t get caught out by them and can make an informed choice in choosing a genuine tree surgeon.
Remember tree surgeons have fairly high running costs which need to incorporate Public and Employers Liability insurance which will cover anyone involved in an accident. Rogue traders will have no such costs so may provide a very cheap quote and will not be able to provide an Employers and Public Liability Certificate.
Establish what qualifications they hold. NPTC (National Proficiency Test Council) certificates should be held as a bare minimum and check whether they work to a British Standard.
Always ask for a written quotation before an agreement is made and work is carried out. References are also a great way of having peace of mind.
Rogue tree surgeons can cause damage to people, property and your plants and trees.
