Norfolk Trees Services

Listed below are the most frequent services people require tree surgeons for and a description of the work this involves. Try to avoid using terms like ‘lopping’ and ‘topping’ as these are now outdated but still frequently used.

Always use professionally qualified tree surgeons as it will save money and headaches in the long run. Don’t be afraid to ask to see copies of insurance and qualifications as any good tree care company should carry these in their vehicles and wont be offended if you ask to see them.

You should also ask to see a waste carriers licence and ask the contractor questions about what happens to the waste once removed from your property. Any competent tree company will stock pile chip and either sell it as a product or it will possibly go to power one of the big power stations.
