TREE SURGEON - WHAT DOES HE DO?
WHAT EXACTLY DOES A TREE SURGEON DO?
A tree surgeon is in charge of the care and general treatment of trees in order to keep them healthy. However, it includes not only pruning overgrown trees to keep them healthy, but also planting new stock and removing trees to clear an area or because the tree itself is harmful.
Tree surgeons have many various tasks, and in order to do their job well, they must be physically fit. All tree surgeons will utilise chainsaws and will be thoroughly trained in their use as well as the necessary protective apparel.
INSPECTIONS OF TREE

A tree surgeon will examine trees to do our hazard assessments, which will explore the possible threat of each tree as well as its overall health. This inspection helps them to determine what work has to be done, and it is critical that it be done on a regular basis on public sites. This is done to protect the public and assure their safety. On private property, a tree surgeon will do an inspection with the customer and will discuss what work the customer wants done, the projected cost, and the amount of disturbance that is likely to be required.
DEAD BRANCHES MUST BE REMOVED
Trees with dead or weak branches will need to be clipped since the tree’s general health will suffer. A qualified tree surgeon will identify which branches should be removed and which may be left alone and will climb the tree to safely remove those branches.
Removing dead or weak branches should improve the tree’s health and, in the case of a struggling tree, may help prevent it from toppling. The use of chainsaws and other cutting tools while dangling in the air is potentially dangerous, thus skilled tree surgeons will not put their health at risk.
FIRST AND FOREMOST, TREE SAFETY
A good tree surgeon will be physically fit and will always climb a tree while using the proper safety equipment, such as a safety harness and helmet. A busy tree surgeon will have to climb big trees on a frequent basis and must be physically fit to do so without jeopardising themselves or their coworkers.
REMOVAL OF A TREE
Although a tree surgeon will do everything possible to save a tree, in the interests of public safety, it is occasionally necessary to remove the tree. In the event of larger trees, this can be a hazardous operation because there will be a process for removing the tree that will require numerous steps.
Typically, the climber will position themselves in the tree and begin removing branches from the top of the tree, working their way down the trunk until all of the branches have been removed.
There will be numerous individuals working on the project, and a crew on the ground under the tree will ensure the public’s safety, and some may be shredding the branches as they are removed to keep the ground clear while the operation is completed.
After removing the branches, the climber will normally make their way down the tree, cutting the trunk above them as they go. This will leave a stump that must be removed.
CLEARANCE OF VEGETATION
Vegetation site clearance is the final step after removing a tree and is frequently employed when a site has to be prepared for larger development or land management operations. This procedure will result in a site that is absolutely devoid of trees and vegetation.
Stumps can be tough to remove, but tree surgeons have specialised instruments that can be used to grind down a stump and remove it.
NEW TREE PLANTING
Tree surgeons do more than just prune and remove trees; if you want professional assistance in planting new trees to give them the greatest possible start in life, consider hiring a tree surgeon. They have the knowledge required to guarantee that the plants are correctly planted and receive all of the assistance they require to grow. Tree planting may necessitate the use of cables, supports, and heavy machinery to guarantee that the tree is correctly planted.
