    Frequently Asked Questions about Tree Care

    Understanding Tree Surgeon Costs

    What is the typical cost for a tree surgeon? On average, the price of a tree surgeon in Bradford ranges from £250 to £400 per day. Considering that tree surgeons usually operate in teams of three, the total daily cost often falls between £700 and £950. Remember that these figures can vary based on the tree’s size, type, and specific job requirements.

    Homeownership Rights – Cutting Trees Within Property Boundaries

    If you are a homeowner, you are allowed to cut down a tree in your garden without permission, provided that the tree is within your property’s boundaries and unless it has been marked as subject to a Tree Preservation Order or it is located in a Conservation Area.

    Renters’ Responsibility – Obtaining Permission for Tree Removal

    On the other hand, if you are renting your home, you need to seek permission from your landlord before initiating any tree-felling activity. It is important to note that if your tree work or felling activity causes any damage or injury to your neighbor’s property or them, you will be held liable. For instance, if the tree falls onto a neighboring shed, you will be responsible for the damages.

    Liability Concerns – Damages and Injuries to Property

    Lastly, if the tree trunk is within your garden, any overhanging branches belong to you, while the neighbors have the right to cut them. These types of disputes are common between neighbors; that’s why it’s important to consult a professional tree surgeon to ensure you stay within the bounds of the law to avoid heavy fines and unnecessary disputes.

    Certification and Training Standards

    Competent tree surgeons will have certificates (National Proficiency Tests Council (NPTC), which show that they have been trained and assessed. They will often have other academic qualifications in arboriculture and use safety equipment to protect you, your property, and themselves. At Bradford Tree Surgeons, all staff are NPTC qualified and adhere to British Standards (BS3998) to assure safe and efficient working practices In Bradford.

    Cost Determinants – Size, Type, and Removal Method

    Tree removal can be expensive due to various factors such as the size and type of tree to be removed. The method of removing the tree also affects the cost. For example, using a crane to remove the tree would be more expensive than climbing up and cutting the branches. However, our professional team is available 24/7 to answer any questions regarding our services and pricing plans. You can contact us anytime for assistance.

    Distinguishing Roles – Arborists vs Tree Surgeons

    It’s essential to understand the difference between arborists and tree surgeons. While both have extensive knowledge of tree treatment, tree surgeons tend to focus more on specific work.

    Qualification as the Key Difference

    The main difference lies in their level of qualification. Tree surgery is a complex and risky job, so all tree surgeons should be qualified – as ours are at Bradford Tree Surgeons. However, for someone to be called an arborist, they must have qualifications in arboriculture – some even have a master’s degree. Be careful of people who misuse these job titles. Always check the qualifications of your tree surgeon or arborist to ensure you receive a truly professional service.

    Timing Matters – When to Trim Your Trees

    Our arborists often get asked this question: When should we have our trees trimmed? The answer is not always as straightforward as we’d like, so we’ve compiled a helpful guide to try and answer this question once and for all.

    Comprehensive Guide for Pruning

    When thinking about pruning, our arborists need to be mindful of the type of tree we’re talking about and several other factors, like the impact of insects, the tree’s susceptibility to disease, and the surrounding landscaping. Generally, the best time to prune or trim trees and shrubs is during the winter months. From November through March, most trees are dormant, which makes it the ideal time for the following reasons:

    1. Trees are less susceptible to insects or disease.
    2. There is less impact on the surrounding landscape, and our crew can easily see what they’re doing while all the leaves are gone. 
    3. Trees heal faster, meaning that when spring rolls around, your tree will be happy and healthy again.

    Tree Preservation Orders (TPO)

    A TPO protects select trees in public spaces. Unauthorized tree Surgery can result in fines, especially for development purposes. Conservation Areas also shield trees meeting specific size criteria. Always check with the Council before undertaking tree work, even if not under TPO.

    For more details on tree preservation orders, please refer to Bradford Council.
