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 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.

Can a tree close to a building be felled?

Many tree surgeons offer a specialist service for trees that cannot be easily felled via a simple cut. Sectional dismantling is used which involves making several cuts to slice the tree into small sections which can be brought back to the ground safely. Using this method will allow tree surgeons to fell trees that pose risks to nearby buildings in a safe manner.

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.

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.

how much does it cost to remove a large tree?

Do you have a large tree on your property and wondering how much it would cost to have it totally removed? If yes, then you’ve come to the right place. Generally, the average cost of a tree removal can widely range due to a number of reasons which includes the size, heigh, diameter, location in the garden as well as the type of the tree. And as you would have expected, the larger your tree is the more you’re definitely going to pay to have it completely removed. While being large, another important factor that influences the price is the ease of access. This means that the more difficult it is to get to the tree the more strenuous and longer it’ll take to be felled, hence the more the price that’s likely to be charged when compared to a similar-sized tree which is more accessible.

Generally for a day’s work, a tree surgeon will charge within the range of £150 to £200, and will usually work with one or two general labourer. As a result, you can expect to pay about £300 to £500 in a day as cost of labour if there happens to be up to three labourers.

In short, to cut down a large tree of about 50 feet to 75 feet, this will usually take about one to two days and cost within the range of £650 to £1,200. Meanwhile an extra large tree which is beyond 75 feet will take about 2 to 5 days to cut down and cost within the range of £1,000 to £2,500. However, you should have it in mind that the price that will be charged will be based on a number of factors like the overhang, tree type, access, disposal, closeness to public footpath or road and more.

can removing a tree cause foundation problems?

One of the most common problems in houses and buildings especially in recent times are structural deficiencies. There are two types of foundation owners as identified by foundation experts and structural engineer. These includes those with foundation problems as well as those who will. With the great increase in the number of field foundations as well as the continued ageing of already existing field foundations, the number of foundation deficiencies in the future is also likely to increase.

Foundation problems are caused by a wide array of reasons which can vary significantly from one place to the other. One of the greatest causes is soil diversity whereby soils in the vicinity may be of a single type, however there are soil types across the area may include clay, sandy loam, sand, rock or even a blend of these materials. While this can result in a big local plant palette which is to the delight of plant enthusiasts, it may not be that great for foundations. Consequently, the diversity in soil types and conditions makes it impossible to give a precise answer to a foundation problem anywhere.

Generally, when a tree grows very close to a foundation you’ll require the advise of a professional arborist consultant. The goal of an arborist consultant is to educate the home or property owner how trees can affect foundations. Therefore, the simple answer to the question whether removing a tree can cause foundation problems is yes. By checking all the related issues, foundation experts, arborist and others can determine whether or not removing a particular tree can cause foundation problems. As a result, before the removal of any tree you must ensure you hire the services of a seasoned tree surgeon who would know his way around without really affecting your foundation.

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.
