The work of the tree surgeon is surprisingly versatile and significantly more diverse than one might first have imagined.
As one becomes more familiar with tree surgery what is immediately evident is the affection that those whose practice it has for the trees with which they work. Just as the medical surgeon performs complex and often potentially dangerous surgery to improve the long-term health of a patient or patients, so the tree surgeon will trim, prune and cut away at disease to sustain what would otherwise be a healthy tree and to prolong its overall viability and even maybe its life.
In the process of fully meeting the needs of his trade,, a tree surgeon is required to learn a great deal and to achieve practical qualifications in the work of climbing trees, using a chainsaw including from a harness or a workstation, as well as basic groundwork. This distinguishes the role from that of a Tree Surgeon, whose speciality lies in understanding the biomechanics of trees, decay and disease, and how they react to cutting.
However, the task of manipulation, of trimming and chopping branches and of eradicating disease and decay, is not the only one that is entrusted to the tree surgeon. It is generally taken for granted that the removal of stumps by the most appropriate means - usually but not always by grinding the stump - comes as part of the tree surgery job as does when there is no alternative, the cutting and ultimately the dismantling of the tree.
Tree surgery may also sometimes include the transformation of discarded wood into usable timber, hedge cutting, fencing work or conventional grounds maintenance. This tree work can often alter a tree into a particular shape, either so that it might fit in more neatly with its surroundings or else for purely aesthetic reasons.
In most municipal areas some trees are protected by Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs). In these cases, permission needs to be obtained from the local authority before undertaking any work, including pruning. The same protection is given to trees that grow within a designated Conservation Area. Any competent tree surgeon will be always in possession either of all this information or at least of the knowledge of where to obtain it from.
A great tree surgeon takes pride in his work and has a devotion to the natural environment and for the trees upon which he works that is truly sincere. It is worth checking the tree surgeons prices of an all-around expert who is capable of providing tree solutions when seeking a professional to attend to your needs.
