  tree surgeons, north yorkshireChoosing

Professional arborists only perform accepted practices
A good arborist will only recommend topping a tree in rare circumstances, such as to save a tree after severe physical damage to the crown. Arborists
should never remove excessive amounts of live wood, use climbing spikes on trees not being removed, or remove living trees without just cause.
A good arborist will not perform such practices and will explain why.

Consider what your money buys-

After doing the necessary homework in selecting an arborist, remember that these professionals require much more than a chainsaw and pickup truck. Arborists make large investments in equipment, training, labor, and high insurance rates (the highest in the green industry). The combination of high overhead prices, costs to maintain the equipment, and a reasonable profit can give many new customers sticker-shock. Remember that the cost of maintaining trees properly far outweighs the cost of losing some of the most valuable assets of a property. Pruning trees safely and professionally is a unique skill. Take your time selecting the right arborist for your situation and reap the benefits of maintaining healthy, beautiful trees.

Trees are one of the most valuable assets in a landscape. All properties, whether residential, commercial, municipal, or college campuses, enjoy the benefits of having healthy and beautiful
trees. In addition to the aesthetic appeal, a well maintained tree can add value to a property, whereas a poorly maintained tree can cause a significant liability. Keeping trees maintained as they age may require the services of an arborist, who can prune, fertilize, assess weather-related damage, or diagnose other tree-related problems.
Professional arborists are trained in the management and care of trees. Removing or pruning trees, especially large trees, can be very dangerous
work. Untrained individuals attempting to work on trees can easily cause damage to property, threaten their own lives, or threaten the lives of others. This is why tree work should be performed only by a properly trained and equipped arborist.

Check the yellow pages
Look for “tree service” in either the printed or online versions.
Listings often mention membership in professional organizations

Be cautious of individuals who go door-to-door seeking business:
Most professional tree care companies are busy and seldom, if ever, solicit work this way. Even if the low price and convenience of individuals selling tree work door-to-door might seem appealing, do not take the risk before speaking to a professional arborist.

Check if the company is properly insured.
Ask for proof of insurance and call the insurance
company directly if necessary.
Homeowners could be held responsible for damages or injuries caused by uninsured tree companies.

Check if the company has personal and property damage insurance as well as workers’ compensation insurance.

Ask for available references:

When asking, make sure to ask about both recent jobs and older jobs to ensure the company has been reputable over time.
Feel free to call references or if possible, visit past jobs to confirm the company’s quality of work.

Get more than one estimate:

Try to get at least two or three estimates of the tree work you need done. Some companies may charge for estimates, but the small fee will be worth it when you have carefully chosen the best company to do the work. If you do receive more than one bid, do not automatically accept the lowest bid. Carefully check the specification of each bid to compare details of how the work will be accomplished, the insurance of each company, and the professionalism you received during the bid process.

Check the contract, twice:

Professional arborists typically give clients a contract to sign before any work is done. Read it carefully and clarify any questions before signing. If any changes are made verbally, ask for an updated contract.

Here are a few questions to consider when reading a contract:

Are additional charges possible?
• Is this price a guarantee or an estimate?
• If this is an estimate, how much is the hourly rate if the job takes longer?
• How will clean-up of the property be handled?
• What time will the work start and end?
• What happens if there is damage to the property?

  tree surgeons, north yorkshireIll Health
    in Trees:

When do you need a tree surgeon or arborist?

New law dictates that landowners are responsible for any trees on their premises. This means that landowners are liable if at any time damage, injury or death is sustained from the result of ill health or neglect in the trees on their property. It is important for landowners to regularly inspect the conditions of their trees.

It is advisable to call out a tree surgeon or an arborist to conduct a thorough examination, diagnosis etc and recommend any treatments.

Ill health in trees can be caused by various factors; old age, rot, infestation, soil conditions, chemicals, weather, man, viruses etc etc

If you recognise any of these symptoms or are concerned about the conditions of your trees, please do not hesitate to contact 'Wychwood Forestry Tree Surgeons and Arboricultural Specialists'. Our tree surgeons and arborists are fully qualified to diagnose any tree from root to tip.

Wychwood aims to maintain the highest standards of tree surgery carried out to BS 3998.

Tree care and tree conservation is at the root of our Tree Surgeons' practise.
Taking a responsible view of current environmental issues, our tree surgeons prefer to consider every possible option in the treatment and care for all trees before a decision is made to fell.

If tree felling is inevitable due to hazards, disease, obstruction or the land owners strict requests our tree surgeons offer a replanting service to replace any tree felled.

Wychwoods tree surgeons in Harrogate are keen to recycle.
The main by-product from our tree work and services consists of woodchip which can be used as mulch or drainage for garden borders. Whilst most customers prefer these by-products removed from site, we can upon request leave the woodchip and logs for the customers personal use in their gardens or woodland surroundings.
We can supply logs for winter by the wagon load. At very reasonable rates!

  tree surgeons, north yorkshireWoodland Management  

There are five basic objectives may be met through implementation of a woodland thinning program:

Increase the growth of the remaining trees, particularly the diameter of the tree rather than the height. This allows trees to reach a marketable size more quickly.

  • Select the most favorable species for growth by removing the unwanted or low value trees.
  • Reduce vulnerability to insect infestations and diseases by improving the health of remaining trees.
  • Select for the highest quality trees by removing broken, deformed or forked trees.
  • Utilize or sell trees that are cut.

  tree surgeons, north yorkshireDefinitions:

Tree Surgeon - A tree surgeon performing tree surgery is the practice of repairing damaged trees to restore their appearance and to arrest disease. Injured or diseased parts are first removed (even small cavities in the bark may harbor injurious fungi and insects), the surfaces are treated with antiseptics and healing aids, and the cavity may be filled with cement or some special material, e.g., composition filler or elastic cement.

Professional tree surgeons commonly perform many tasks in addition to tree surgery that are difficult for the individual gardener e.g., large-scale pruning and providing proper support when needed.


Arborist -
is a professional in the practice of arboriculture; the management and maintenance of trees. Work may also include care of shrubs, vines, and other perennial woody plants. An arborist is distinct from a forester, or from a logger. Those professions may have much in common, but the scope of work is different.

Arborists frequently focus on health and safety of individual trees, or wooded landscapes, rather than managing forests or harvesting wood.

Certified Arborist / Utility Specialists work on trees near power lines. Closely related careers include landscapers, tree farmers, and nurserymen. Those professions are closely related because each one utilises much of the same technology, education and training. An arborist's work may involve very large and complex trees, or ecological communities and their abiotic components in the context of the landscape ecosystem. These may require monitoring and treatment to ensure they are healthy, safe, and suitable to property owners or community standards. This work may include some or all of the following: planting; transplanting; pruning; structural support; preventing, or diagnosing and treating phytopathology or parasitism; preventing or interrupting grazing or predation; installing lighting protection; and removing vegetation deemed as hazardous, an invasive species, a disease vector, or a weed.

Arborists may also plan, consult, write reports and give legal testimony.

While some aspects of this work are done on the ground or in an office, much of it is done by arborists who climb the trees with ropes, harnesses and other equipment.

Lifts and cranes may be used too. The work of all arborists is not the same. Some may just perfom consulting; others may perform climbing, pruning and planting: a combination.

Tree surgery:

Treatment of diseased or damaged trees by filling cavities and pruning and bracing branches.
