FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Arborism was first known to be a formal practice in the 1900's, where bow saws replaced stihl chainsaw and axe heads would be present instead of the large wood chippers that we have today. Back then, the arborist had no safety gear such as climbing harnesses, helmets, visas and chainsaw trousers.
Tree Surgeons Training
Without suitable training, our tree surgeons in hertfordshire just simply wouldn't be safe near a chipper or towards the top of a 60ft tree holding a chainsaw. All of our personnel go through a rigorous training scheme, with separate courses held for 'Treesmiths' tree surgeons in Hertfordshire, for using and caring for chainsaws, tree climbing, towing a chipper, Ariel rescue as well as first aid courses. Ariel rescue is to ensure that if in the unlikely event of a tree surgeons were to get get caught up in a tree, there would be a trained professional on site to perform a rescue that could help free or lower the person back down from the tree.

Some trees are covered by TPOs (tree preservation orders), if this is the case, then the local council would have to grant special permission before any works were to take place. We can obtain this permission as your contractor, or if preferred you (if you are the landowner) can speak to the local council to have it granted yourselves. Unfortunately, we are unable to work on a tree that that has an application turned down.

Yes of course. This gives us an even greater reason to do your tree surgery. Our tree surgeons in Hertfordshire will carefully evaluate the safety of a tree before proceeding with any works. Sometimes a tree may be too unsafe to climb, but that doesn't mean we can't do our works. This is when pole saws (chainsaws on extendable poles) and small cherry pickers are sometimes necessary. Or sometimes in a suitable location, a tree surgeon can safely fell a tree with the use of ropes guiding the direction of the trees fall.
