Following on from our previous post on why you should use a tree surgeon, it has become more important than ever to be aware of rogue tree surgeons who state to be one thing yet do not have the skills or capability to support their claims. Those who act as tree surgeons are possibly one of the most serious types to ignore for a number of reasons. Rogue tree surgeons carry the following risks, just to name a few:

  • Making the current situation worse
  • Causing danger to themselves and others
  • Destroying beautiful land
  • Charging you extortionate prices for very little work

There has been an alarming increase in accidents caused by DIY tree surgery, mainly occurring through people claiming to be professional and qualified tree surgeons. With very little arboriculture experience or qualifications, those pretending to be tree surgeons are putting themselves at a greater risk than ever before.

Although it may seem tempting to opt for a rogue tree surgeon, it is a very dangerous move. You may be enticed by cheap prices and a quick process, but the chances of actually receiving what you have been promised are very slim. When coming in to contact with a tree surgeon, do not be afraid to ask to see their experience and qualification history. You are paying for the service and you deserve to see great results.

There is no doubt that tree surgery is a specialist trade which requires an extensive range of training and skills. Tree surgeons have gone through years of learning to get to where they are today. Once learning the basics about the management of trees, tree surgeons go on to learn skills such as:

  • Chainsaw use and maintenance
  • Aerial rescue
  • Specialist climbing
  • Equipment handling and maintenance

It can be very clear to distinguish between the professionals and imposters when they are put to the test.

We understand that it can be hard to tell who is a professional and who is faking their skills in this day and age, so it is very important to head to well respected and reliable companies who have evidence to back up their claims. Here at Premier Tree Surgeons, we provide you with only the most qualified and passionate tree surgeons to ensure that your needs are met. The proof is in the pudding, as they say, and the results will be sure to astonish you.
