Article 3: Tips for selecting a Tree Surgeon

When making an appointment with a Tree Surgeon, inform them if you require advice regarding trees or if you already have a specification and need an estimated or fixed cost quotation.

Identify if your trees are in a conservation area or if there are any tree protection orders (TPO’s) on your trees.

Consider obtaining more than one quotation or estimate. This will allow you to compare prices and choose the right company for your particular job. Remember that price may not be the governing factor.

Estimates or quotations will normally be provided free of charge for your specific requirements, but you should be aware that there may be a fee charged if advisory work is involved.

When asking for an estimate or quotation, indicate when you would like the work to be carried out. The contractor will be able to advise you if this is going to be practical.

Do not leave it too long before accepting an estimate or quotation. If possible, let the contractor know your decision within 7 to 10 days, and make clear the terms of acceptance.

Rick Glenn, Head Gardener, Dulwich Park, SE21 7BQ

"As Head Gardener at Dulwich Park I have had the opportunity over the past 4 years to observe the tree surgical talents of Hamish Lodge, Cut Above Tree Management. Hamish has always impressed me with his arbouricultural skills being very efficient, careful and accurate when tree felling, not damaging surrounding plants or structures whilst ensuring public safety. For these reasons I choose him for my private jobs too.

On a more personal level, he is a friendly positive person who always seems to be enjoying his work. No doubt this attitude will serve him well in his professional life. I'd like to take this opportunity to wish Hamish well and look forward to seeing more of his work in the future."
