Take Care! The Pitfalls of using Inexperienced, Unqualified/Under Qualified Tree Surgeons
Removing trees is one of the most dangerous jobs any tree surgeon undertakes. It takes many years to learn the safe and professional way of tree felling in Essex. Many have-a-go tree cutters lack the professional skills and qualifications to remove trees without injuring themselves or damaging property.
Since the recession it has been more tempting for cowboys who are unqualified and uninsured to offer a cheaper service in tree removal Essex wide. T.H. Tree Services never cuts corners yet offers very competitive prices. Rest assured you are in the safest hands with fully insured tree surgeons providing several years’ professional experience in tree felling across Essex.
Take a look at what’s involved in tree removal in Essex:
What qualifications does a competent Essex tree surgeon need?
This is not a straightforward answer but here goes… in the eyes of UK law, a tree surgeon must be competent and hold proof (certificates) of such competence. The UK tree industry recognised certificates of competence are called City & Guilds N.P.T.C qualifications. All tree surgeons now train to this standard and insurance companies require us to honour our legal obligations as a tree surgeon working in the UK. That simply means any tree surgeon carrying out tree removal services must hold the correct N.P.T.C certificates to ensure their insurance company will pay out should something go wrong.
Should a customer be unlucky enough to employ an unqualified tree surgeon and something does go wrong, even if they show proof of insurance there is a huge chance the insurance company will state your tree surgeon did not act in accordance with UK law and therefore breached the contract with the insurance company. This could remove the insurance company from having to pay out for any accident caused by an unqualified/under qualified tree surgeon carrying out tree removals across Essex.
Of course an insurance company may sell insurance to unqualified/under qualified tree surgeons without even checking if they are qualified, Crazy we know ! It’s simple why they do: less risk of having to pay out.
Specialists in all Species of Tree Removal
Our Essex tree removal experts have specialist knowledge of all the common species of trees in the UK including the following:
Oak Tree Removal

Officially known by its Latin name as Quercus Robur, oak trees regularly grow in excess of 20 metres and sometimes up to 40 metres.

Willow Tree Removal
There are around 400 species of willow tree, known in Latin as Salix meaning ‘sallow’. When mature, willow trees grow to around 10 metres tall and have long lifespans up to 300 years. We have particular expertise in dealing with willow tree removal Essex wide. Due to the breadth of the hanging canopies, dealing with a willow tree that needs removing does require specific knowhow, which thanks to our long term and wide ranging experience as qualified tree surgeons, we can certainly offer.

Eucalyptus Tree Removal
The eucalyptus tree is an evergreen variety which benefits from expert attention including coppicing and pollarding. Providing they are regularly pruned, eucalyptus trees can be suitable for small gardens, but left unkempt they will grow to quite a height and even in normal conditions they will easily shed bark and branches. If you have a eucalyptus tree that needs removing for whatever reason, we can help. Our eucalyptus tree removal service is available Essex wide and we are able to handle any job safely and cost effectively, regardless of the size of the tree.
Cherry Tree Removal
Cherry belongs to the Prunus group of trees and there are various fruit bearing species across Europe. Cherry trees can grow wide and tall, often up to 10 metres, and despite the fact they produce delicious fruit and beautiful cherry blossom, they can easily become unmanageable. If a cherry tree on your land needs removing, we can offer the knowhow required and offer a safe and cost effective service as specialist cherry tree removal experts Essex wide.
Silver Birch Removal
The silver birch tree, known officially as Betula Pendula, is native to the UK. It can reach 30 metres in height and has a light canopy. The silver birch is a good tree to have as a neighbour if you are a plant, as its deep roots act as a channel for otherwise inaccessible nutrients. Of course these deep roots may cause an issue in other respects, sometimes making it a challenge to remove a silver birch tree. However this is not a problem for T.H. Tree Services, as we have developed specialist expertise in dealing with all the UK’s native tree species. If you have a silver birch tree that needs removing, you can rely on the capabilities of our silver birch tree removal specialists in Essex to do so quickly and efficiently.
Ash Tree Removal
Ash trees, scientifically known as Fraxinus Excelsior, are native to the UK. They can live to a ripe old age of 400 years, although this can be even longer if they are professionally coppiced. Often reaching heights of around 35 metres, the ash tree is known for being tall and elegant, and it is common for them to grow together so that a domed canopy forms. If you have an ash tree in Essex that needs removing, you can rely on the expertise of the tree surgeons at T.H. Tree Services to undertake the task professionally, safely and efficiently. Even if you have a row of ash trees that need taking down, we can assist with a specialist ash tree removal service Essex wide.
Plum Tree Removal
The plum tree comes from the family known as Prunus Domestica, which also produces damson and greengages. Plum trees are not native to the UK but are still fairly common. They do not grow very tall and are characterised by straight branches and spiny twigs. If you have a plum tree that needs removing, we can help. Our qualified Essex plum tree removal specialists are experts in dealing with the majority of the UK’s common tree species.
Cedar Tree Removal
Cedar trees are imposing evergreen conifers. They are native to the Lebanon, eastern parts of the Mediterranean and areas of Asia, but fairly common now in the UK. The Latin name is Cedrus Libani and the wood is a natural insect repellent. Cedar trees generally grow to around 35 metres and they are distinctive by the fact that they have several trunks. Despite the unusual shape, our Essex cedar tree removal experts are able to deal with removing a cedar tree of any size without issue, and it is no problem at all to remove a cedar tree that is blocking light or causing other issues such as interfering with neighbouring property or overhead power lines.
Pine Tree Removal
There are a number of different species of pine trees. The Scots pine is one of the most common and is one of just three native to the UK. The Pinus Sylvestris as it is known will grow up to 35 metres in height and can live for up to 700 years. Despite the looming height, the specialist Essex pine tree removal specialists at T.H. Tree Services can offer to deal with removing pine trees with reassuring expertise and efficiency. Even if your pine tree has grown to an unruly state, and is of particular height, we have the knowledge, manpower and experience to remove it cost effectively and swiftly.
Your tree surgeon shows some basic qualifications, but are they right for your specific job?
For each task, for example small tree felling, large tree felling, tree dismantling, stump removal, etc. there is a qualification. Here is a guide for employing a qualified Essex tree surgeon – remember there are numerous tree surgeons out there with only basic qualifications. Whilst these enable them to say they are qualified to N.P.T.C standards, in actual fact they may not be qualified to carry out your specific job. It is vital to understand the differences, and also to ask to see proof of the stated qualifications.
