The Most Frequently Asked Questions about Our Services
I’ve never heard of an Arborist – what or who is that?
An arborist is another term for a “tree surgeon”. A professional tree surgeon or arborist is someone who has the training, qualifications, skills, experience and especially insurance to carry out a complete range of tree, hedge and garden maintenance jobs – all of which require specialist knowledge and equipment.
Can you tell me what areas you currently cover?
At the moment Camberley Tree Surgeons covers all areas surrounding Camberley, including Frimley, Lightwater, Bagshot, Yateley, Sandhurst and Farnborough. More generally speaking, we are happy to provide our tree surgeon services across Surrey, Hampshire and Berkshire too.
All of our arborists have taken extensive training and have been approved through NPTC (National Proficiency Tests Council) courses. This ensures that they are fully qualified as tree surgeons to provide specialised services within Camberley and the surrounding areas.
Please feel free to request any additional information from our friendly arborists about the training they have taken or the qualifications they have secured.
I’m faced with a ‘tree emergency’ – how quickly can you send someone?
As professional tree surgeons in Camberley, we understand how unexpected tree emergencies can impact your day-to-day activities.
While we do everything within means to reach you as urgently as possible, we cannot commit to a ‘fixed timeframe’ as our ability to reach your location with a specific period depends entirely on the existing bookings that we must tend to daily.
How often is tree maintenance required?
Factors like the garden’s size and the type of plant life in it are among just some that need to be considered when it comes maintenance regularity.
We’d recommend making an appointment with our Camberley arborist so that they can visit you and then advise on the ideal course of action in order to maintain not just your trees’ longevity but also your garden’s beauty.
Does tree surgery cost a lot?
As with the regularity of maintenance, tree surgery cost is also dependent on variable factors. These factors include the scale of the job, the urgency and the tools required.
Our professional and qualified arborists, however, can certainly provide a rough quote based on photographs, although a final quote can only be provided after a site inspection.

I think my neighbour’s tree is responsible for my garden problems. What should I do?
Your first recourse should be to have a frank discussion with your neighbour, naturally – it’s only common courtesy that you do! Legally speaking, if your neighbour’s tree is a nuisance to your garden due to direct encroachment, then it is your right to prune any branches and leaves that are hovering directly over your property.
However, at the same time, it’s important to note that Tree Preservation Orders protect certain trees from pruning, irrespective of their location or the area they span over. It’s, therefore, always good to look up a tree’s status before having any pruning carried out. If you need help with this, our Camberley arborists are here to assist.
Can you tell me what a Tree Preservation Order is?
Commonly abbreviated as TPO, a Tree Preservation Order is an official order issued by local planning authorities to protect certain species of trees or specific woodland areas from any kind of intentional damage or destruction.
If the tree you want to prune, trim or modify in any way carries a TPO, then we can help you in filing the necessary paperwork before any kind of tree surgery or maintenance work can commence.
Where does all the garden waste go?
At Camberley Tree Surgeons, we are proud of the fact that we’re doing everything possible to protect and preserve the environment. It is for that reason why we dump all garden waste at designated disposal sites only which are authorised by local bodies.
Our team always endeavours to leave your garden in a significantly better state than before any work was carried out.
Can you do any work over weekends?
Absolutely! While we do strive hard to be as flexible as we can with work hours, we do ask you to give us a ‘heads up’, and the earlier, the better.
Our professional tree surgeons in Camberley are available in all local areas including Frimley, Lightwater, Bagshot, Yateley, Sandhurst and Farnborough.
Is it a good idea to remove any trees myself?
Nothing is standing in your way if you wish to do it by yourself – but please remember, that this is something that requires specialised equipment, not to mention the right know-how and experience. Plus, it can also be a dangerous task which many people fail to take into account when attempting to take down trees on their own.
In fact, some have even inadvertently harmed other people’s property as a result. We’re insured to protect against any liability or damages which may unexpectedly manifest throughout the course of the job so that you remain safe, protected and have additional peace of mind!
