Are you someone who is fascinated by trees and the environment or are you looking for a career that will allow you to work outdoors? If either of these are you or both, then a job in tree surgery could be for you. 

In this blog, we’ll talk you through the key responsibilities of a tree surgeon and 3 reasons why it’s something you should consider.


What is a Tree Surgeon?

A Tree Surgeon, also known as an arborist, is a professional who is trained and equipped to deal with all aspects of tree care, from planting and pruning to felling and stump removal.


What are their main responsibilities?


Tree Surgeons are responsible for the planting, care and maintenance of trees and shrubs. They also provide expert advice on the best way to care for trees and maintain their health. A Tree Surgeon provides a wide range of tree care services including planting, pruning, felling, stump removal, and providing advice on the best way to care for trees.

On a monthly basis, tree surgeons are also called upon to deal with tree emergencies, such as fallen trees or branches blocking roads or forms of transport such as trains


Why should I consider a career in tree surgery?


  1. Flexibility – As a tree surgeon you have the ability to be self employed and act as a contractor working for larger companies instead of as an employee of a company which means work can be more flexible than a 9-5.
  2. Variety of roles and responsibilities. For example, many young people start as climbers and then progress/move onto more ground based management roles.
  3. Reliable Job – And as long as there are trees, there will always be a need for Tree Surgeons, due to the benefits they provide.
