What qualifications does a competent Hertfordshire tree surgeon need?

This is not a straightforward answer but here goes… in the eyes of UK law, a tree surgeon must be competent and hold proof (certificates) of such competence. The UK tree industry recognised certificates of competence are called City & Guilds N.P.T.C qualifications. All tree surgeons now train to this standard and insurance companies require us to honour our legal obligations as a tree surgeon working in the UK. That simply means any tree surgeon carrying out tree removal services must hold the correct N.P.T.C certificates to ensure their insurance company will pay out should something go wrong.

Should a customer be unlucky enough to employ an unqualified tree surgeon and something does go wrong, even if they show proof of insurance there is a huge chance the insurance company will state your tree surgeon did not act in accordance with UK law and therefore breached the contract with the insurance company. This could remove the insurance company from having to pay out for any accident caused by an unqualified/under qualified tree surgeon carrying out tree removals across Hertfordshire.

Of course, an insurance company may sell insurance to unqualified/under qualified tree surgeons without even checking if they are qualified, Crazy we know! It’s simple why they do: less risk of having to pay out.

Your tree surgeon shows some basic qualifications, but are they right for your specific job?

For each task, for example, small tree felling, large tree felling, tree dismantling, stump removal, etc. there is a qualification. Here is a guide for employing a qualified Hertfordshire tree surgeon – remember there are numerous tree surgeons out there with only basic qualifications. Whilst these enable them to say they are qualified to N.P.T.C standards, in actual fact, they may not be qualified to carry out your specific job. It is vital to understand the differences, and also to ask to see proof of the stated qualifications.

OK so you’re a qualified Hertfordshire tree removal company, why else should I engage your services?

With Forestwood Tree Services we do all the hard work so our customers don’t have to. We provide proof of our qualifications and insurances and update them every 5 years in-line with industry best practice.
