What makes a “good” tree surgeon?

Tree surgeons, also known as arborists or tree climbers, carry out all kinds of tree work. This includes planting, care, maintenance, pest control and hazard assessment. Tree surgeons work at height, using ropes, harnesses or elevated work platforms.

A “good” tree surgeon will usually:

  • Enjoy working outside
  • Be comfortable working at height
  • Enjoy practical and physical work

Tree surgeons often come from being ground workers. Ground workers support tree surgeons and operate chainsaws, chippers and grinders.

A “good” tree surgeon will usually have relevant qualifications and extensive job experience. There are also a few qualities that are important:

  • Interest in conservation of the environment
  • Good knowledge of trees
  • Physical fitness and head for heights
  • Good communication skills & professional image
  • Ability to read maps and plans
  • Health and safety awareness
  • Ability to prioritise the workload

Reviews and referrals often help individuals when making the decision of hiring a tree surgeon. You can encourage your clients to leave feedback and refer you to others, but doing a good work is usually enough to entice your clients to do this.
