A Tree Surgeon is an individual who removes, trims, prunes, plants and maintains trees for the welfare of the environment. But not anyone can be a tree surgeon….
Why are Trees Important
Often a Tree’s importance is overlooked, as without an environment packed full of greenery, we would all have an un-sustainable environment to live in. Trees contribute to the environment by providing oxygen, improving our air quality, preserving soil and supporting forms of wildlife. Trees essentially build our ecosystem!
According to NC State University, 1 large tree can supply up to four people’s worth of oxygen for a day. (NCSU, 2017)

You also need a qualified Tree Surgeon as it can be a criminal offence to cut down, trim, lop, unroot and wilfully damage any trees protected by Tree Preservation orders (TPOS) in public areas.
