Common Questions

Do you need planning permission for tree surgeon jobs?

You might not know this, but many trees are protected by tree preservation orders. This means that usually you’ll need consent from the council if you want to fell or prune them. There are additional controls over other trees in conservation areas; find out all about them over at the Planning Portal

Do you need insurance for tree surgeon work? 

Your tree surgeon should have public liability insurance as it protects against any damage that could be caused to your property. Ask your tree surgeon whether they have it before any work starts.
