Tree surgeons are qualified professionals trained to provide tree services ranging from reducing the tree’s crown right through to shaping and removal.
Tree reduction Essex wide involves the removal of the outer crown of a tree to allow more light into a given area.
When trees have grown overly wide or high, we often recommend crown reduction. We explain all about the various ways Crowns can be dealt with, click HERE to find out
When you need to have a tree removed also read our notes regarding having the stump removed to ensure a safe garden, click HERE to find out
Dead wood on a tree is a natural part of the growth cycle and doesn’t mean there is anything wrong.
Within the Essex area there are many trees which are subject to a Preservation Order.
How can I find out if the trees within my ownership are protected?
You can check to see if a property or area of land has a Tree Preservation Order on it, or if it is located within a Conservation Area, by looking at the council website or by contacting the local council (usually the planning department). If your tree is protected then you will need to apply to the Council to carry out any work. See also ‘A brief guide to legislation for trees’
As there are many individual Council areas you should refer to the Council in which your property and/or Tree is located, but as an example, we have provided a link to the part of the website of Rochford District Council which deals with Tree Preservation, just clickthis link.

We are very proud of the service our Company offer and which, to obtain the professionally recognised qualifications we have, took many years of studying and subsequent experience in the field.
We have included copies of the City & Guild’s qualification Certificates, on the Qualifications page and also a copy of the unique membership card which contains a photograph of the Company’s owner.
As in most service professions, there are those who present a good image and offer to do the work you require at sometimes questionable cost but are not able to demonstrate their professional qualifications in being able to undertake the work correctly, which can leave you with little redress.
There have been recent news items where unqualified people have posed as Tree Surgeons and charged the customers quite unreasonable prices, so beware, as mentioned above, always look for reviews of past work completed and if you have the time, check out the identify and/or qualifications of the person or Company you are going to employ and invite into your property - do not be put off by suggestions that we will “show them to you later” as once you have paid your deposit you may be unable to obtain a refund.
Never, never, hand over over the full amount for the agreed the work until it has been completed satisfactorily and also get the verbal quotation put into writing on official notepaper and do not pay a deposit until this has been done.
Not always the case, but Companies having only a mobile phone number should raise your suspicions, try and deal with Companies who have a bone-fide address in your area with a landline number, and if necessary, check it out, it is so easy to do this with so much information readily available on-line.
