The Common Questions About Tree Surgery Most People Ask

Have you got a tree on your property that has grown too big? You may have asked if you want it to be trimmed or if you would like it to fall – but what does this mean, and what happens when a tree is cut down? To answer these questions, here are the most common questions people have about tree surgery.

What is tree surgery?

Tree surgery is the process of cutting and shaping trees and shrubs. It can also include the removal of trees and shrubs, if necessary.

What is the purpose of tree surgery?

  • To improve the health, appearance, and shape of a tree or shrub
  • Reduce tree risk to people or property 
  • Improve access to buildings and other structures, such as power lines or telephone poles
  • Reduce shade on buildings and pavements 

Can I do it myself?

Most homeowners would like to save money by doing their tree surgery. The problem with this approach is that it is hazardous, and you may hurt yourself or damage your trees further. You may also cause damage to your home if you cut into the wrong part of the tree trunk or branch while trying to prune it yourself.

How much will it cost?

The cost of tree surgery will vary depending on the tree’s size and health and the work that needs to be done. Other factors that can affect the cost are whether the tree is in a difficult location to access if it has been previously treated and if any other trees nearby need to be protected.

Will the tree be safe during the procedure?

Many homeowners wonder if their trees will be in danger during the procedure. Tree surgeons use all of their experience, knowledge, and equipment to ensure that they can safely remove or prune your trees without putting them in danger.
