As with any product or service that you buy, you would generally have a minimum acceptable standard in mind when you purchase it. Surprisingly however when it comes to your trees, and lets not forget they are a massive part of the aesthetics of your garden, many people seem quite happy to employ anyone willing who knocks the door.
Tree surgery is a skilled and dangerous job therefore we would urge all our readers to ensure they know that the person carrying out any tree work is both capable and qualified.
Choosing The Right Tree Surgeon
The first thing you should expect is a polite and friendly service. If during the estimate you find the tree surgeon to be pushy or rude, then you’re probably going to find that he or she is less interested in providing a quality tree service, and far more interested in doing a quick job to ensure quick payment. If the tree surgeon is helpful and polite, then you can trust he or she will remain so when it comes to the completion of the work in question and that any minor snags can be easily and quickly resolved.
The next thing you should be able to expect is that the tree surgeon is qualified and capable to perform the tree work that you have requested. Sounds like a no brainer right? You would be amazed at the amount of cowboys out there who will happily run off with the job half done when they find themselves unable to complete it, usually after trying get further payment from you.
TOP TIP: Be sure to ask any prospective tree surgeon about their qualifications and experience, if you feel that they are in any way being less than truthful then we woudl advise you to look elsewhere for your tree surgeon.
What Does A Proper Tree Service Look Like?
Having decided on a tree surgeon you should expect a certain standard during the job itself. The tree surgeon should arrive at the agreed time or if delayed inform you of any problems. They should take into account any special circumstances surrounding the tree and modify the removal, tree trimming or whatever the work requires.
They should be concerned not to damage plants surrounding the trees or on the pathway used for the removal of branches and be happy to interact with you concerning the job at any stage. They should complete the work in a safe and timely manner allowing you minimum disruption possible.
Your garden should be left in as clean and tidy a condition as possible in relation to the work you have requested. Also when the job is finished you should feel comfortable querying anything you are not happy with.
Now there may be a very good reason why the tree surgeon has deviated from your expectations and you should listen to their explanation, but refusing to explain or listen to any concerns would be unacceptable.
By finding a tree surgeon with this level of professionalism you should always receive an excellent tree service.
