What to Expect When Hiring a Tree Surgeon

Hiring a tree surgeon isn’t something that you’re likely to do regularly, which is why it can be difficult to know what to expect when the time comes that you have to hire one.

Tree surgeons are specialists when it comes to tree, hedge, and stump removal, offering professional removal and crowning services designed to protect your property and ensure the safety of any large plants and/or foliage.
As experts in the industry with years of experience, here the Scanlon Tree Services team will go through what to expect when you have to hire a tree surgeon to ensure that your receive a safe, professional, and reliable service.


Shop Around & Ask Questions

When shopping around for tree surgeons, it’s important to ask questions. As a high-risk service, ensuring that the tree surgeon you hire is fully qualified as an arborist and is also fully insured is a must that you should never compromise on. While there are many exceptionally skilled tree surgeons out there offering above-board jobs, there are also frauds who provide extremely cheap services. While lower costs may seem enticing, it’s never worth risking the safety of your home, family, and potential workers. Before choosing a tree surgeon to suit your requirements, make sure to ask lots of questions about their qualifications, experience, and specialities. Genuine tree surgeons will be happy to answer these questions transparently.


Give a Detailed Description of the Issue

After choosing a tree surgeon for your property, the next step will usually be to give the tree surgeon a detailed description of the issue at hand. As well as identifying whether the issue is an emergency that requires urgent care or simply a maintenance or aesthetic job, giving your true surgeon a detailed rundown of the issue at hand will ensure a fair quote and timeframe that suits both you and the professional. Tree surgeons offer an extensive range of services for all properties ranging from emergency tree felling to site clearance, hedge removal, stump removal, tree pruning, and more. Helping your tree surgeon know what to expect once on site is a great way of getting a fair and accurate quote for the services being provided.


During Your Tree Surgeon Visit

After both you and the tree surgeon decide on a time and service to suit your needs, the tree surgeon, or surgeons, will visit your home and begin work. Due to the nature of the job, hiring a tree surgeon can be a messy job that requires lots of equipment, but this shouldn’t worry you! Any tree surgery service worth their salt will ensure a full clean-up afterwards to leave your garden clean, neat, tidy, and, most importantly, safe. Depending on the service required, your tree surgery service could take anything from a few hours to a few days, but the company you hire will keep you in the loop on this. A professional tree surgeon will arrive equipped with all necessary equipment, safety gear, and materials required for a full-service job you can rely on.


When looking for a tree surgeon, it’s vital to do your research to protect the safety and integrity of your property and the surrounding land. From tree felling to hedge cutting, planting, and site clearance, employing a reliable tree surgeon makes all the difference.
