Want to hire a tree surgeon in North London but not sure how to get started? This article will explain everything you need to know about hiring a professional.
Finding a tree surgeon vs doing the work yourself
Why hire a professional when you can just do the work yourself? It might only be chopping down a few branches, right?
Wrong. Doing tree surgery yourself is extremely dangerous for all the following reasons:
- Falling branches might injure you, damage your property or your neighbour’s property
- You might compromise the stability of the tree, shrub or plant you are working on
- You may injure yourself with the equipment you use if you aren’t familiar with it.
- You can be given a heavy fine if you work on a protected tree.
There’s a reason why our tree surgeons are all fully trained and accredited. It’s crucial you find a specialist in your local area to perform any type of tree surgery.

Before the tree surgeon arrives
Your tree surgeon will take care of all the tree work for you. However, there are a few things you can do to make their job easier:
- While your tree surgeon will usually offer to move anything that might become an obstacle, it will save time if you clear things away before their arrival
- Remove your car from the drive so that they can pull up and reverse off the road in order to cause as little disruption as possible
- Clean up any dog mess prior to your tree surgeon’s arrival
Artemis will arrange any necessary road closures, signage and parking permits required for the work as well as checking for permissions on protected trees.
What if there’s limited space to access the garden?
We have many years of experience performing tree surgery in limited spaces or with limited access to the garden.
If there is no alternative but to access the garden through the property, we take the utmost care to avoid any damage to the property when removing tree branches or debris, and we ensure that your property is left as tidy — or even tidier — than we found it.
We can also perform tree surgery even if there is limited space in the garden itself. We can use a combination of roping systems and we can dismantle trees in manageable sections in order to safely work on the tree. Our tree surgeons are highly experienced and will ensure the protection of paving, fences and neighbouring properties.

What happens once the work has been completed?
We finish up all our work by tidying the area and ensuring all mess has been cleared. 100% of the waste produced from the work will be recycled and made into biofuel.
