What Does A Tree Surgeon in Manchester Actually Do?

Tree Surgeon in Manchester

One of the most common questions we get asked, on an almost daily basis, is ‘what does a tree surgeon in Manchester actually do?’

Well, the job role of a tree surgeon basically entails anything that has to do with looking after trees – from planting and maintenance to pruning and even felling. A little-known fact is that tree surgery is actually one of the most dangerous professions in the world which means that we have to be very physically fit at all times, able to use a variety of power tools safely and be used to working outdoors in all sorts of conditions.


Tree Surgery Tasks

If you take a closer look at our website, you will see that we offer a wide variety of services and so our daily tasks can vary quite widely.  Here are some of the most common things we get involved in:


Looking After Unhealthy Trees

No two trees are the same, so in order to provide you with an accurate quote, we need to visit your site and have a good look at the tree. This also allows us to assess any potential hazards and get a good idea of the health of the tree (or trees).  This is perhaps one of the most important parts of our job as it enables us to gauge how long the work will take to complete, how much work needs to be performed, and whether the work will have an effect on the general public or not.

If a tree has a lot of dead or dying branches, then it is likely that the overall health of the tree is not great. We can have a look at the number of branches that we think need to be removed and assess the best way to remove them. The usual way for us to remove unwanted or unhealthy branches is to climb the tree using a harness.

It is not always possible to save a tree by just removing the dead branches, unfortunately, and sometimes more detailed work is involved.  If the tree itself is dead or is causing a risk to safety then the whole thing may have to be removed. This is a dangerous job, and should only be undertaken by a company specialised in tree removal in Manchester. It will usually involve a team of people, with some climbing up the tree and some on the ground to support those up the tree. We will, of course, use the best method for your tree and the site.


Planting New Trees

Tree surgery is not all doom and gloom though, we also get involved in planting and maintaining trees as well. It is essential that trees are planted in the correct way so that they thrive, and ensure it is not only placed in the ground the right way but also supported while it is young, so that it won’t need as much maintenance when it is older.

We offer a wide range of tree surgery services and are one of the leading tree surgeon in Manchester. Whatever tree service you need, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us today on 0800 050 2131, 07958 495031 or send us an email to info@barkandbranch.co.uk
