Few people are aware of the knowledge and skills involved in tree surgery, and it’s incredibly surprising to learn that only a handful of us will actually take advantage of the expertise of this underutilised trade. In fact, a 2017 study by insurance company AXA found that 28% of homeowners would attempt to fell a tree by themselves, and a further 23% wouldn’t even check they needed permission to cut it down in the first place.

There are a few reasons why so many homeowners seem to take the responsibility for such a complex task into their own hands. One may be that, because tree surgery is a lesser known trade, people are less likely to seek professional assistance, as they won’t know where to find a qualified tree surgeon. They may also not know how high tree surgeon costs can be, making it tempting to try to complete the work themselves for free.

However, tending to and felling trees without the proper experience or training is not only dangerous to everyone involved, but it could also result in accidental damage to property. Additionally, if a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) has been placed on the tree, or the tree is within a conservation area, then permission will be required from the local council.
