WHAT IS A TPO?


A Tree Preservation Order is the protection order made by your local planning authority to protect certain areas, and individual trees, if your tree has a TPO then planning permission is needed for any work done on that tree. We can do all this for you with our report writing and submit planning permission for you. 6 weeks notice is needed to be given to the local authorities before work commences.

WHY SHOULD I NOT CHOOSE A TREE SURGEON BASED ON PRICE ALONE?



It is important to remember that good tree surgeons have a higher running costs what with machinery, depots, higher insurance and hiring other highly qualified staff for the job. Whereas “Rogue traders” have none of these costs and will come in at a lot cheaper price. It’s the old saying, “you get  what you pay for”. Anyone can claim to be able to do the job but to do it properly entails a lot more than just having a certificate to use a chain saw. Your trees future depends on the job being done by someone who understands their biology and how they respond to each cut. Bad tree management and works can cause damage that will last for the life of the tree – and can often reduce its life span. Poor tree works can leave the tree looking unpleasing and unattractive; can damage the environment and surroundings having an impact on house valuations. It can also be dangerous; if a trees limbs are not pruned correctly and weight not distributed evenly around a tree this can cause branch and limb drop or worse!
