How Much Does Tree Surgery Cost?
This is one of the questions that TH Tree Services, in our capacity as professional tree surgeons, are asked frequently. The answer is not a simple one, there’s no ‘one cost fits all’ price tag. Tree surgery is a varied and diverse occupation and the price of different services varies too.
But please read on as we try to demystify the typical cost of tree surgery!
After the initial question of how much tree surgery costs, many people follow it with a statement that they could do the work themselves – many even attempt it too, with disastrous and often extremely dangerous results.
The dangers of DIY tree surgery – and the hidden costs
Tree surgery is a skilled profession that is regulated and should only ever be attempted by qualified and experienced tree surgeons.
Without an understanding of tree surgery, attempting to fell or even trim and cut a tree is dangerous. Damage that can quickly run in to thousands of pounds can be done to property, cars and in some cases to people too. Trees can be damaged beyond repair and the situation could cause extreme hazards to passers-by.
Professional tree surgery is cost effective and it can save a great deal of time and money too.
Professional tree surgery: Reasonable prices for reliable and safe work
It’s always more cost effective to hire a professional such as TH Tree Services rather than to attempt the job yourself. Our 10 years’ experience will get the job done safely and our specialist equipment will ensure it is completed quickly too.
Jobs are priced on an individual basis as there are many factors to consider before a tree can be treated. Are there obstacles in the way of the tree? Is it situated very far from a road making access difficult? How large is the tree in question? Other considerations that can affect pricing include proximity to phone and power lines and garden equipment and sheds, decking or fencing being in the way.
We offer a range of services from tree pollarding and crown lifting and crown reduction to dead wood removal, hedge trimming to tree felling. A site survey will determine the cost of any individual job but in general we charge:
Tree reductions/pollarding costs
Tree felling costs
Stump removal costs
The above prices are for guidance only, for an up to date competitive price please contact us today.
Always use a professional tree surgeon for peace of mind
As with any professional service, believing a job can be done just as well by an unskilled amateur is a false economy. For tree surgery to be completed successfully and safely tree surgeons must be qualified, hold the correct certificates and qualifications such as NPTC CS309 previously NPTC CS41 certificates that are essential for insurance purposes, meet LANTRA standards, British Standards and adhere to all tree surgery regulations.
In addition to this tree surgeons should be experienced and be adequately insured. A reputable company like TH Tree Services ticks all these boxes meaning a consistently professional, reliable service at a reasonable cost.
