How to Choose the Right Tree Surgeon in the Sutton Coldfield and Tamworth areas

There are many reasons why you might need to employ the very particular skills of a tree surgeon, but whatever your reasons are, it is vitally important that you take the time to find a professional company. If you try to do the job yourself, or if you employ the services of one of the large number of cowboy outfits, not only do you risk unnecessary damage to trees, but also personal injury and the destruction of nearby buildings, cars and so on.

Here is a brief guide on how to choose the right tree surgeon in the Sutton Coldfield and Tamworth areas and beyond.

1) Check for Certification and Registration
The first and most obvious thing you need to check for is whether or not your tree surgeon has professional qualifications. At Bailey Tree Services, we are NPTC trained and fully registered as professional tree surgeons. Furthermore, we are certified with the British Standards Institution and compliant with BS3998, the national industry standard for tree work.

2) Check for Insurance
A professional outfit will have insurance policies in place to cover you just in case something does go wrong and there is accidental damage to your or any surrounding property. Bailey Tree Services are fully insured, with Public Liability up to £5m and Employer’s Liability up to £10m, giving you 100% peace of mind.

3) Check for Testimonials
As with any business, a sure-fire way of knowing if they’re any good is what other people say about them. Generally speaking, the more good reviews a business has from previous customers, the better they are. It is especially encouraging if they have a good reputation on a professional review site such as Bailey Tree Services is doing pretty well in this regard too.
