Tips on Tree Surgeon Services in Cambridge

As a tree surgeon you will find yourself trimming and maintaining trees throughout the day. Although this may sound easy enough – it actually demands the attention of a highly skilled and trained professional. Alongside being physically demanding, various aspects of a tree surgeons’ profession are in fact very precarious and dangerous. As arborist ourselves, the team here at SP Landscapes are on hand to offer you invaluable tips on how to perform your role as a tree surgeon Cambridge to the upmost in professionalism.

Tip One: Training

To operate a successful arboricultural business all the staff must have the appropriate qualifications and training. The specialist nature of the job demands the attention and skill of a trained individual. Training schemes which has been about since 2002 are the Lantra Awards and the certificates of competence (COCs), which are awarded by the City & Guilds NPTC. The training primarily focuses upon tree climbing, pruning and dismantling of a tree.


As Arboricultural Association Approved Contractors, we are extremely confident that all members of our team are able to perform these operations in an efficient and safe manner.

Tip Two: Use of Equipment

One way to maintain high levels of health and safety, whilst delivering a superior level of service to the consumer, is by sourcing the correct equipment. One piece of equipment which we feel is essential in performing an efficient and quality assured service is the stump grinder. Unlike other companies who use excavator hire Oxford, our process of grinding the stump down is a lot quicker, while simultaneously minimising the disruption caused to the ground.

Tip Three: Insurance

Due to the high risk attached to the occupation of an arborist, insurance is essential. Here at SP Landscapes we have public/product liability, employers liability, professional indemnity and Hire in Plant insurance.


This protects us and our customers. It is good practice to have the correct insurance, as both business and consumer could otherwise suffer.
