How to identify trustworthy Tilbury tree workers
Many people receive leaflets through the door touting services like ‘garden clearance’, ‘trees removed’ and ‘lopping and topping’. Take care though, because unless the leaflet says otherwise, this usually indicates general, unqualified labour.
Tree workers who are properly qualified to safely deal with all types and sizes of trees in EVERY situation, hazardous included, will be able to show you a checkable list of qualifications. They will also be able to provide evidence of relevant insurance and experience, which should span a number of years.
Tilbury tree workers that can be trusted will happily provide checkable testimonials, evidence of quality standards and proof of compliance with associated regulations.
Most tree work is undertaken in hazardous conditions. Trees often reach great heights and some are in difficult locations such on the banks of bodies of water or close to overhead power lines or public roads. Qualified, experienced tree workers, in other words, tree surgeons, will possess the skill to deal with such situations safely and without any issue.

Our experts hold TEN different N.P.T.C. qualifications plus TWO LANTRA qualifications. All our tree workers go through regular refresher training to keep their skills up to date.

Tilbury tree workers: Our Popular Services
Our most popular Tilbury tree worker services include:
Tree pollarding – Trees situated by public highways or near to overhead cables must have their canopies maintained and the best way of doing this is pollarding. We often carry out this service for local authorities and private land and estate owners.
Crown reduction – Crown reduction reduces the size of a tree’s crown. It is beneficial to the tree because it increases light and air flow. It also expands the view and allows light to penetrate the ground below so that plants and grass can thrive.
Dead wood pruning – Dead wood forms as a tree naturally grows. It must be removed o a regular basis so it doesn’t fall and injure someone or damage property unexpectedly. We will always ensure that the dead wood was produce naturally rather than due to disease or pest infestations. If the latter, we will formulate a treatment plan.
Tree removal – If a tree is diseased, hazardous or just cannot be salvaged, is preventing access or its roots are posing issues, tree removal may be the only remedy. Tree removal involves working at height so it must be carried out by professionals with the correct equipment and qualifications.
Tree Workers in Tilbury – Our Specialist Services
As well as the more popular tree worker services listed above, our expertise and long term experience also allow us to offer a variety of specialist services such as hedge trimming and hedge removal; ivy trimming and removal; bamboo removal and storm damaged tree removal.
Our Tilbury tree workers have extensive knowhow across all the species of trees growing commonly throughout the UK, including both native and non-native species.
For example, the oak tree which regularly grows to heights of 40 metres; the willow tree, usually located on the banks of lakes and rivers; the Leyland cypress, known to grow to a minimum of 40 metres; the eucalyptus tree and the cherry tree, both of which require highly specialist knowledge concerning pruning. These are just a snapshot of the tree species we are able to care for. For further insight into your own particular trees, the best time to prune them and the common diseases they are susceptible to, check out our useful tree ID pages.
Tree pruning: timing means everything
Avoiding the active growing season is usually the key rule when it comes to tree pruning. This usually falls between late spring and early winter. This is important because when a tree is pruned during its active growing phase, it bleeds sap. This in turn attracts bugs, which bring disease.
The best pruning seasons, and pruning processes for individual trees, do vary, which is why it is vital to study our resources or contact us for bespoke guidance.
Any non-emergency tree work is also outlawed during the bird nesting season. This runs from February to August in the UK. Always check for nesting birds before going ahead with any tree work, even outside of this period. Any emergency tree surgery, such as removing hazardous branches or treating a tree for disease or pest infestation, can usually go ahead any time of year.
Tree Preservation Orders Explained
Trees of notable interest are protected by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO). This means that any tree work requires permission, which can take around eight weeks to be granted. If your tree is located in a conservation area then you will need permission for any type of tree work.
Over the years, our Tilbury tree workers have developed strong relationships with local authority tree officers, placing us in an advantageous positon to help get your tree work authorised as swiftly as possible.
A Guide to Common Tree Diseases
Some trees are more susceptible to disease and pest infestations than others. The most widely known tree diseases are ash dieback, chestnut blight, Dutch elm disease and oak decline, but there are so many more.
Our Tilbury tree workers are qualified to assess and treat diseases, fungi and pest infestations. If you are worried that your tree may be diseased or infested, browse our guide to common tree diseases and pests and do not hesitate to contact us for individually tailored advice.
