Top Tree Surgeons related questions

In the United Kingdom, the range of a tree surgeon’s rate is usually £40 to £50 per hour, which adds roughly £300 to £400 for a day’s work. Factors like the tree’s size and condition, location, and of course, the type of job needed affect the price.


Depending on the tree size or width, tree pruning and lopping typically costs £400; stump removal and grinding at £50 to £200 (depending on the tree’s width); and tree removal at £500 to £2,000 (depending on the tree’s size). Meanwhile, tree survey and report costs £200 to £300, depending on the number of the trees within the area.

In general, they differ in training and knowledge. Tree surgeons often perform the dirty work, such as cutting down trees, pruning, and removing stumps. Meanwhile, arborists are certified professionals who studied the science of arboriculture (cultivation and management of shrubs, trees, vines, and other woody plants). They diagnose the whole body of the tree to reach the right solution. Despite dissimilarities, a surgeon and an arborist may work together to plan and execute tree services.

No, pollarding (like removing all branches from a tree) is only suitable for certain types of trees. For example, pollarding is suitable for surgeries involving ash trees, elm trees, and willow trees. Other examples include maple, oak, and sycamore trees. But generally, the tree surgeon will need to handle trees on a case by case basis. It’s best to consult a tree care professional on whether or not your tree can be pollarded. 

The most suitable time for pruning depends on the tree's species. Many trees are best pruned during the winter when the trees are dormant. But some trees, like those under the cherry species, should be pruned during the summer to prevent silver leaf disease. Your hired Tasker can also give you tips on the best time to schedule your preferred tree service. 

Although tree surgeons are not legally obliged to get certified, a certification ensures the Tasker has enough training, especially for dangerous tasks. A tree surgeon would need to go through extensive training and work experience. Tree surgeon certificates of competence include tree felling and processing; chainsaw maintenance, onsite preparation, basic cross-cutting; using a chainsaw from a rope and harness; and first aid at work.


Connecting with a tree surgeon through Airtasker? You’ll also be able to see the specialist’s ratings and reviews from previous customers to get a better grasp of their experience.

Tree removal permit requirements vary per location. For safety, check with your local council for tree regulations specific in your location. Tree preservation orders may protect some trees.


You can also hire a tree service specialist on Airtasker. They are more knowledgeable about regulations and can recommend legal solutions to your tree concerns.

If your location has no recycling facility for tree waste, the discarded trees, limbs, and branches go to a green landfill. But if possible, a tree surgeon can go for more environmentally conscious disposal options, like turning the waste into mulch, firewood, biofuel, and lumber. Your hired Tasker may be aware of environment-friendly disposal options in your area.

What do tree surgeon services include?

Our relationship with trees should be a two-way street. From providing habitat for wildlife to preventing floods, trees help us in a myriad of ways. But at the same time, they won’t be able to give us our needs if they’re diseased.


Good news is you don’t need to worry about it on your own. For urgent tree issues, there are tree surgeons you can hire in Airtasker. These Taskers can do the dirty work, handle risky processes, and climb great heights. The tree size, condition, species and location help the expert come up with the right solution—may it be pruning, lopping, or pollarding, among others.

Tree felling and removal

Is your tree sick, dead, or unsafe? If you’ve checked any of the boxes, your Tasker might solve the problem by felling. The process involves cutting the trees down to prevent diseases from spreading to surrounding trees, moreover boosting safety in the area. Some clients also request tree felling for aesthetic purposes.


Meanwhile, tree removal means the roots, stumps, fallen branches, and the entire tree get removed.


Felling or removing a tree can carry danger and would need involving specialised equipment. Therefore, it’s crucial to consult a knowledgeable tree surgeon for this. For extra peace of mind, you can also book an arborist to work side-by-side with your tree surgeon, as they are trained to diagnose trees and recommend safe solutions.


Tree pruning, cutting, lopping or trimming

If diseased or dead wood is present, the tree surgeon will need to remove them, which is what pruning is about. It also boosts the growth of fruit and flower buds.


Meanwhile, tree lopping or trimming effectively modifies a tree’s shape. Your Tasker accomplishes this through cutting branches and training them to grow in a specific direction. It is often focused on aesthetics. If this is not properly maintained, branches can become unwieldy, growing in various directions.


The specialist may also do crown thinning on a tree—or removing select branches to increase light penetration and reduce crown weight. 


All in all, pruning, lopping, and cutting stimulate and control growth in trees.


  • Stump removal

Stump removal may demand a specialised stump grinding machine, which can completely destroy the tree’s stump and root system. Although it sounds difficult, your tree surgeon can grind down and remove unsightly or bulky stumps efficiently.


  • Tree pollarding

Have you ever seen those “lollipop trees”? They are the result of pollarding, thanks to the purpose of visual allure.


Aside from that, tree pollarding keeps a tree from outgrowing its bounds on a private landscape. It also minimises chances of trees encroaching electrical wires. Whether placed in streets, parks, or small spaces, trees can be compact. Once you pollard a tree, you’ll have to repeat the process every year or two throughout the tree’s life. This means you may need constant landscaping or gardening maintenance.
