Hiring a tradesman for tree pruning

Pruning is an important part of keeping trees healthy. It is often done either for medical or aesthetic reasons, but while lopping off branches might seem like an easy job, proper tree care is much more complicated. Poorly done pruning could damage the health and growth of your trees, or leave the limbs structurally unsound. Particularly with larger trees, it is always worth investing in a professional tree surgeon or gardener.

Finding a reliable Pro can be difficult, especially if you don’t necessarily know what to look for. Luckily, you can save yourself a great deal of time and stress through Plentific. The Plentific website can quickly generate a bespoke contact list of tradesmen in your local area that provide the services you need, and each will have a Plentific profile displaying their qualifications, experience and customer reviews. Messaging and managing Pros is simple through the Plentific Dashboard, while the Plentific Wallet makes booking and paying your Pros completely secure. Best of all, each and every job booked via Plentific will be covered by the Plentific Guarantee. Whatever help you might need, Plentific can find you your ideal hire.

What do I need to know about tree pruning?

There are a number of reasons why your trees require professional pruning. Overgrown limbs can deprive other nearby plants of natural light, and overly heavy limbs can present a huge danger to nearby buildings, particularly during windy or stormy weather. Pruning can also help a tree to grow and retain its natural appearance, particularly younger trees. It can also raise their resistance to common pests and disease, and make them more structurally sound. You may simply want some ‘vista pruning’ done, so that parts of your tree do not obstruct your view.

Depending on the size and type of tree, you may require an arboriculturalist (tree surgeon) instead of a gardener. Tree surgeons have a more in depth knowledge of how to keep trees healthy, and will have the experience and equipment to handle taller and larger trees safely. Having an established adult tree pruned back could cost around £200, but you should not rely too much on cost estimates, as a lot will depend on the specifics of your job. A tree surgeon will usually want to assess your project before providing a quote, and many will do this free of charge with no obligation, so take advantage of this if you can. Collect several quotes and compare them based on quality as well as price. Again, a poorly done job could potentially cause a number of problems.

It is important to look at the backgrounds of your potential hires. Your final hire should have several years of experience under their belt, especially if they are a tree surgeon. A tree surgeon will usually have completed an apprenticeship or equivalent industry qualification. Be sure to check reviews from past projects to try and gauge each candidate’s reliability and professionalism. They may also belong to a national tradesmans’ organisation, such as the Arboricultural Association. These groups have high standards for professionalism and quality of work that members are obligated to meet on each job. Your final hire will need to have active public liability insurance, as well as a guarantee for their work.
