Tree Surgeon FAQs

Do tree surgeons need a waste carriers licence?

If you’re looking to become a tree surgeon or perhaps you just need to hire a reliable tree surgeon for your home or business establishment, one of the things you’d first need to consider is whether or not a waste carriers license is required. If you’re also having the same concern, then you’ve come to the right place! In this post, we’re going to consider whether or not a waste carriers license is a required license for tree surgeons. Let’s take a look!

First and foremost, let’s consider the meaning of a waste carriers license. If you happen to carry waste on the public highway, a valid waste carriers license is a must. This is also applicable to any business which transports, buys, sells or disposes wastes or arranges for another person to buy, sell or disposes of waste. What’s more? This does not necessarily have to be your primary area of business, but so far it’s a part of the activities you engage in. As a homeowner, it’s your responsibility as a producer of waste to make sure that it’s being handled legally and correctly even after the waste has left your premises. In the event whereby your waste has been disposed of illegally or wrongly, you should be able to stand your ground that you’ve done everything in your power to make sure your waste was handled and disposed of the proper way. One way you can ensure that is by ensuring your waste carriers can legally carry your waste.

According to the Environment Agency, all tree surgeons and arboriculture-contracting companies transports and carries waste regularly are required to obtain a Waste Carrier’s license to do so.

can i remove a tree on my property?

The decision to purchase a property may not come with trees as an influencing factor. However, when the trees start to get overgrown or appears sick you will have to consider the regulatory status which may affect your ability to prune, fell or remove them.

First and foremost, the owner of the tree must be determined and this is the individual who owns the land on which the tree was originally planted. However, if you’re not the owner but the tree overhangs your land you’re allowed to cut the branches back up to the boundary, if the tree is unprotected. In such cases, you normally do not need to seek the consent of the original tree owner or neighbouring land owner to perform the works to the tree. But the branches and fruits on them ( if any) still remains that of the land owner and they’re to be returned to them if necessary.

In situations whereby you’re the owner of the tree, you’re required to determine whether or not your tree is protected by a Tree Protection Order ( TPO) before any action can be taken. The main goal of a Tree Protection Order is to provide protection to trees which are considered to deliver amenity values to the general public. In other words, if your tree can be viewed by the public and enjoyed from outside your garden’s confines then there’s a high possibility that it’s subjected to a TPO.

To confirm whether or not your tree is subjected to a TPO, you can check with your local planning authority (LPA). However, there are some local council websites that displays all TPOs registered within their jurisdiction.

how to remove a conifer tree?

Have you being considering the options available to you for removing the conifers around your home? Or perhaps you’re just planning to raise some structures in an area where you have lots of conifer trees. Regardless of your reason for wanting to remove a conifer tree, you’ve come to the right place!

There are multiple options to remove a conifer tree based on the one that best suits your needs. Some individuals are okay with felling the tree and leaving the stumps behind, while others don’t just want both the tree and the stumps so they poison the tree and subject the stumps to a quick rotting process.

lThe Physical Method

This basically involves felling the trees with the help of powerful machines and other tools. Let’s take a look!

• Early preparation. Get your chainsaw ready alongside your pruning tools as well as other equipments that can prove to be useful.

• Determine the direction you want the tree to fall. You must ensure there’s no passerby risk or risk of damage to any property whatsoever.

• Cut down the trunk. Put your chainsaw to use. First cut doen the branches and twigs before felling the tree.

• Choose your cutting technique depending on the tree’s size, slope and chainsaw available.

• Check for possible infestation before removing the conifer tree.

• Remove the conifer stumps by grinding the stumps out (use a grinder) and setting fire to consume the stumps.

lThe Chemical Method

To carry out this process, you need to first cut down the large tree branches using a chainsaw. Once done, cut off a portion around the circumference of the trunk below the lower branches, close to the root. Leave the bark’s strips connected to the conifer tree to expose the inner tissue.

Mix the chemicals and apply into the conifer tree directly until the whole surface is covered. This will make the conifer tree to die off gradually for a couple of weeks.

Can tree surgeons carry out work on trees protected by Tree Preservation Orders?

In many instances tree surgery work can still be carried out on trees that are protected by Tree Preservation Orders (TPOs). Tree surgeons will be able to file the needed forms with the local authority to arrange such work, and advise you throughout the entire process.

What happens to the felled trees?

Tree surgeons will be able to remove any logs or wood chippings produced by the work carried out from your garden. They will then dispose of these in an environmentally friendly manner. Generally the companies will cut and dry the wood and then sell it on to the local community.

when to prune leylandii?

When home or property owners decide to plant a Leylandii, they mostly think about how great it is as a hedging and screening plant and forgetting it also require a regular maintenance to keep in good shape. One thing about Leylandii are they do not re grow if you happen to cut back into the old wood. Once it turns brown, it will remain like that with no possible solutions to remedy the situation as they have little to no ability to regrow from the old wood.

In order to maintain your Leylandii hedge in good shape and order, that’s not too wide or too tall, then it’s recommended that it should be trimmed at least once a year. By doing this, you’re more likely to cut only into the new green growth which will enable the hedging plant look great and green with no brown patches. So when is the best time to prune a Leylandii hedge plant in a year?

Generally, it’s advisable to cut back mature or overgrown Leylandii hedges in the UK about two to three cuts between the months of April and August. By this time, your hedge plant will already be well established and ready for some maintenance and care. However, if there’s a chance that you might not be able to prune it on a yearly basis, the we’d suggest you get a slower growing alternative instead. Some of the alternatives which are slower growing and unlike Leylandii, can regenerate when cut back into the old wood are several types of Thuja as well as English Yew.

Below are some guidelines you can follow when trimming your Leylandii hedge:

• Do not cut Leylandii hedges during very forsty or hot weather.

• Do not cut the hedges during wet conditions to allow the cut dry and heal quickly.

• Make use of sharp tools.

• Cut on a cool and breezy day.

Should I be carrying out preventative tree surgery?

Even if your trees are not obviously damaged or diseased, tree surgeons can carry out surveys to determine if there is any work that needs to be carried out. This work could range from removing dead branches, pruning to promote growth, or even crown works which could open up more light into your property by altering the height and size of nearby trees.
