Benefits of Hiring a Professional Oxfordshire Tree Surgeon


When you visit the doctor you expect a professional. When you seek financial advice, you want a licensed advisor. Similarly, when hiring a tree surgeon you should hire a professional as well. You don't want to hire an unqualified tree cutter as it could end up costing you more in money, time, and inconvenience. Instead, work with a professional from the beginning and save yourself the headache. All our operatives hold relevant NPTC certification. 

Here are 7 benefits of hiring a professional tree surgeon:


Health Care of Trees

If trees aren't properly maintained, they can develop diseases, are prone to attacks by insects and pests, and are vulnerable to the elements of a certain site. This will impact the cost of maintaining the tree and potentially pose a safety hazard.

Tree surgeons undertake preventive care and maintenance to ensure that the tree remains in overall good health. It helps to protect the tree against the diseases, insects, and problems with the condition of the site they are planted in.

Professional tree surgeons undertake health care measures such as:

  • safety assessments
  • spray program to control diseases and pests
  • aeration to improve growth of their roots
  • fertilisation

These health care measures ensure the longevity and vitality of your tree for years to come. It lowers the cost of maintaining the tree and saves you the hassle of having to do a full tree removal.


Clearing Space and Land

Starting a building project is difficult when the land is littered with tree stumps and obstructions. Also, having tree branches hanging over a neighbour's fence can lead to disputes. This could lead to both financial and emotional stress.

If you have an area that needs to be cleared our professional tree surgeon Oxford specialists can help by felling trees, removing tree stumps or pruning obstructions.

We will clear the area in a cost effective, efficient and safe manner so that you'll save yourself money and time and prevent injury and damage to surrounding area.


Qualified and Knowledgeable

A professional tree surgeon is qualified and uses science and technology to improve their practices. Unlike an unqualified 'trimmer' who might be pruning your tree at random, our qualified tree surgeons will use their scientific knowledge of tree anatomy and ecosystems to maintain plant life. We have proven methods for tree maintenance and care. 


Extensive Experience

If you're considering removing a tree, but want know if it can be saved instead, then our tree surgeons can help. Without hiring a tree surgeon, you may make hasty decisions such as tree removal, tree cutting, or excessive pruning. This could affect the health of the tree and end up costing you more money than if you had just hired a professional. 

Using their extensive experience, our tree surgeons will be able to determine if the tree can be saved or needs to be removed. This will prevent you from making mistakes that could harm the tree's health, which would lead to higher costs for you.

Crown reduction is a pruning technique used by our tree surgeons to reduce the height and spread of a tree's crown. The extent of reduction may vary with different species. Live branches are selectively removed to achieve this. The end result is a reduction in shade from the tree's foliage or the maintenance of a tree in it's immediate environment.  


  pollarding 300x159Tree Pollarding

Pollarding involves the removal of the upper branches of a tree. It promotes a dense head of foliage and is used primarily to keep trees at a predetemined height. This provides an aesthetic benefit of a uniform height if multiple trees are placed in a row.
