Difference Between An Arborist and Tree Surgeon Blog

Arborist or Tree Surgeon?

While there are many similarities between an Arborist and a Tree Surgeon, there is also some differences. An Arborist is qualified and specially trained to provide expert advice and management in all aspects of tree care. Their job is not just about tree work, but the evaluation of trees and surrounding area and only then carrying out the minimum amount of tree work necessary to protect the trees & environment, following the British BS3998:2010 Tree Work Recommendations.

A Tree Surgeon is qualified to carry out work such as pruning & tree felling. Services that are typically provided by a tree surgeon are tree maintenance including pruning, reducing, tree felling and removal of dangerous trees or trees in confined spaces, following the British BS3998:2010 Tree Work Recommendations.
