Tree surgeon is the regular name for an arborist or an arboriculturist. Whatever you call us, we are experts in the care and maintenance of trees and hedges. What distinguishes us from foresters is that we tend to concentrate on the safety and health of individual trees and plants, rather than the management of entire forests and plantations. In this sense, our work often involves single or small groups of trees in an urban environment.
The role of a tree surgeon is a vital one.
Despite being massive and long-lived organisms, trees can be surprisingly fragile, particularly in an urban setting. Whilst they look sturdy, certain conditions can be extremely detrimental to trees and hedges if left unchecked as, unlike other living beings, they are unable to rid themselves of any disease, infestation, or damage without assistance.
Trees in the UK are prone to all manner of diseases and infestation from fungus or wood boring insects. In such circumstances, spotting the signs early is vital to successful treatment. There are numerous ways to treat trees that have been affected, from chemical glazes to cutting away the affected parts.
If a tree has suffered damage, be it in a storm, or some sort of collision, it needn’t signal the end. Mature trees are hardy things and, provided they are braced and wrapped in a timely manner, there is no reason even a badly damaged tree can’t repair itself over time.
Of course, sometimes we can try all of this, and it’s not enough. Other times, we can tell that the tree is either dead or beyond help. It’s a shame, but these things occasionally come to pass. In such circumstances, our tree surgeons will fell the tree, either in one go or in sections, depending on how it is positioned, and remove it safely from the area.
Knowledge of the local area, its flora, and its conditions can be a tree surgeons most effective tool. Based in Christchurch and covering a radius of twenty miles that includes Bournemouth and Ringwood, we know our area well.
