Grays Tree Workers
What are tree workers and how do you know whether they are actually qualified to do the job you’re hiring them for? Sadly there are way too many so-called Grays tree workers who certainly DON’T have the credentials to put them in a position to safely carry out specialist and often dangerous work.
Let’s take a look at what MUST be considered when engaging tree workers in Grays, as well as the services you can expect to see covered, the tree species dealt with and how to seek out the best value for money.
How to identify genuine Grays tree workers
If you see a service offering that involves things like ‘garden clearance and ‘lopping and topping’ then beware: this usually indicates general, unqualified labour. Tree workers who are actually qualified to safely deal with all types and sizes of trees in EVERY type of situation including those that are hazardous, will display a verifiable list of qualifications. They will also show that they have suitable insurance and that they have a good level of experience. They will also quote specialist services and show their knowledge of pruning methods and tree species.
Grays tree workers that are worth the money you pay for them will never skirt around the issue when you ask for evidence of testimonials, or of standards and regulatory compliance.
Be aware that most tree work has to take place in risky conditions. In many situations, trees are of exceptional height and some are located in difficult to access places, such as close to bodies of water or near to overhead power cables or public roads. Qualified and experienced tree workers, usually referred to as tree surgeons, will have the knowhow to tackle these situations with ease AND they will have undergone intensive training in the use of job-specific, high-risk equipment.

Tree Workers Grays – Our Qualifications
At T.H. Tree Services, all our Grays tree workers are qualified to N.P.T.C. and LANTRA standards. These are the industry’s standard certifications. You must look for these because they act as verification that a tree surgeon has reached a minimum standard of proficiency.
When engaging tree workers in Grays, always confirm that they hold the qualifications appropriate for the work they are undertaking on your behalf. Bear in mind that not all tree workers will have ALL the correct certificates. This may well lead to insurance related issues for you, and you definitely don’t want to be facing those.
At T.H. Tree Services, our Grays tree workers have TEN different N.P.T.C. qualifications plus TWO LANTRA qualifications. All our tree workers are put through refresher training on a regular basis to keep their skills up to date.
As Grays tree workers, we adhere to British Standard BS 3998 2010 as well as all the associated legislation including the Work at Height Regulations, the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act and the Manual Handling Operations, all of which we have a completely untarnished record in.
Grays Tree Workers: Our Services
Our Grays tree workers offer a comprehensive range of services including:
When a tree is located on a roadside or near cables that run overhead, it is helpful to keep the canopy under control using the pruning process we call pollarding. We often carry out this service for local authorities so that trees can be kept safe.
Crown reduction involves reducing the size of a tree’s crown. This benefits the tree by promoting light and air flow. It also improves the environment surrounding the tree.
Dead wood occurs naturally during the growth cycle of a tree. It is essential to regularly check trees for dead wood and remove it so that the risk is taken away. If you have identified loose branches in your tree, our Grays tree workers will take steps to ensure no disease or pest infestations are present.
If a tree is posing a hazard or is diseased and cannot be salvaged, or is blocking access or its roots are causing problems, tree removal may be the only way forward. Because tree removal involves working at height, it must be carried out by professionals using the correct equipment and with appropriate qualifications. This will ensure injury and property damage are avoided.
Tree Workers in Grays – Our Specialist Services
At T.H. Tree Services we are able through our experience and knowledge to offer a wide range of tree worker services including the tree pruning services listed above. As well as these, we also have various specialist services on offer. These include hedge trimming and hedge removal; ivy trimming and removal; bamboo removal and storm damaged tree removal.
Our Grays tree workers have in-depth knowledge of all the species of trees that you find commonly across the UK. These include native and non-native species such as the oak tree which often grows to heights of 40 metres; the willow tree, often located by water; the Leyland cypress which is known to grow to at least 40 metres; the eucalyptus tree and the cherry tree which both require specialist knowledge regarding pruning. These are just a small proportion of the tree species we are equipped to handle.

When to Prune your Tree
Our Grays tree workers will always provide guidance on the best time to prune your tree. If you’d like to learn more for your own knowledge, you will find ample information amongst our news and tree ID pages.
The general rule concerning tree pruning is to avoid the active growing season. In most situations this is the period covering late spring to early winter. The reason this season is to be avoided is that when a tree is pruned during its growing phase, it bleeds sap. Sap attracts bugs which bring with them disease.
The best pruning times and methods for each of the individual tree species will always vary. This is why it is essential to study our resources or contact us for bespoke advice.
You should also note that it is not permissible to carry out any sort of non-emergency tree work during the bird nesting season (February to August). Always check for nesting birds before going ahead with any tree work. Any emergency tree surgery like the removal of dangerous branches can be carried out at any time of year.
Tree Preservation Orders – What you Need to Know
Trees of notable interest are protected by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO). This means that the amount of pruning permitted will be subject to restrictions and that permission will be required to carry out any works. You’ll need to consult with the arboriculture department of your local authority and check the TPO register before you proceed with any work. If permission is required then you’ll need to wait around eight weeks for it to come through.
If your tree is located in a conservation area then express permission will be required before proceeding.
Our Grays tree workers have developed good relationships with local authority tree officers. This means we can liaise efficiently for you so that your tree work can be authorised as quickly as possible.
Common Tree Diseases
Some trees are more susceptible to disease and pest infestations than others. The most common tree diseases are ash dieback, chestnut blight, Dutch elm disease and oak decline, but there are several others to be on the lookout for.
Our Grays tree workers are qualified to identify and treat diseases, fungi and pest infestations. If you are worried that your tree may be suffering from disease or infestation, consult our guide to common tree diseases and pests and do not delay in contacting us for tailored advice if you have any concerns.
