Top Tree Surgeons related questions

No. Pollarding (i.e. removing all tree branches from a tree) is only suitable for certain types of trees. For example, pollarding is suitable for ash tree surgery, elm tree surgery, and willow tree surgery. Other examples include maple, oak, and sycamore trees. But a tree surgeon will need to handle trees on a case by case basis. Whether or not your tree can normally be pollarded, you still need to consult a tree care professional.
Tree surgeons are not legally obligated to get certified. But certification ensures a tree surgeon 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, on-site preparation, and basic cross-cutting
  • using a chainsaw from a rope and harness
  • first aid at work
Tree surgeons do the dirty work, such as cutting down trees, pruning, and removing stumps. Meanwhile, arborists are certified professionals who studied the science of arboriculture (i.e. the cultivation of trees and shrubs). Arborists would diagnose the whole body of a tree to come up with the right solution. In other words, tree surgeons and arborists do not have the same training or knowledge. However, a tree surgeon and arborist may work side-by-side to plan and execute tree services.
Winter is an ideal time to prune many species of trees. During winter, trees tend to be dormant. But it can be useful to prune cherry species during the summer months to avoid Silver Leaf Fungus infection. Your tree surgeon can advise you on the best time to do your specific tree service.
Discarded trees, limbs, and branches go to a green landfill if your location has no recycling facility for tree waste. But if possible, a tree surgeon can go for more environmentally conscious disposal options. Tree waste can be turned into mulch, firewood, biofuel, and lumber. Your local tree surgeon may be aware of environment-friendly disposal options in your area.
When tree surgeons make you an offer on Airtasker, you can message them directly for follow-up questions. The following questions can help you find the right tree surgeon:
  • How will you be removing the tree?
  • How will your method affect the tree’s future growth?
  • Is there a way to do the job without affecting my neighbours?
A skilled tree surgeon should be willing and capable to answer these questions in detail.

What do tree surgeon services include?

Tree surgeon services include pruning, removing tree limbs or stumps, and cutting down trees. These specialists handle the dirty work and dangerous tasks related to tree removal. Often, tree surgeon services involve using hazardous equipment and climbing at great heights.

A tree surgeon may remove unsafe, diseased or dead trees. In other situations, a tree surgeon may prune a tree to control its growth and shape. Tree surgeon services keep your premises safe and your landscape looking beautiful. 

Tree felling

Felling involves cutting down a tree that is diseased, dead, or unsafe. When a tree is sick, a tree surgeon may have to remove it altogether to prevent the disease from spreading to surrounding trees. A tree surgeon may also fell a tree in a weak condition to ensure safety. For extra peace of mind, you can hire an arborist to work alongside your tree surgeon. Arborists are specially trained to diagnose trees and recommend safe solutions.

Tree cutting, pruning & lopping

Cutting, pruning, or lopping stimulates or controls growth in trees. Tree pruning is the process of removing diseased or dead wood. What’s more, tree pruning stimulates the growth of fruit and flower buds.

Meanwhile, tree lopping is an effective way to modify the shape of a tree. The method involves cutting branches and training them to grow in a specific direction. A tree surgeon may also do crown thinning on a tree. This consists of removing select branches to increase light penetration and reduce crown weight. 

Tree service & maintenance

Tree maintenance tasks include pruning, using mulch, and trimming. A tree surgeon may also perform preventative treatments for insects and diseases. Tree services & maintenance can keep a tree looking healthy and beautiful. To complement your tree services, book lawn care and garden maintenance for the upkeep of your outdoor space. 

Stump removal

Tree surgeons can grind down and remove unsightly or bulky stumps. The process may require a specialised stump grinding machine. With this machine, both the stump and root system can be completely destroyed. 

When the job is done, some tree surgeons may also clear out the debris from your garden or yard. If you have other clutter lying around, you can book a clearance service on our platform. Once the task is done, you can get on with your building or replanting plans. Or enjoy your newly cleared outdoor space.

Tree pollarding

Pollarding a tree involves removing all branches and most of the limbs of a tree, leaving only the trunk. Through pollarding, the tree eventually produces dense branches and foliage. For aesthetic purposes, pollarding can grow unique-looking “lollipop trees.” 

What’s more, pollarding keeps a tree from outgrowing its bounds on a private landscape or encroaching on electrical wires. The method also keeps trees compact on city streets, parks, or small spaces. 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 and garden maintenance.
