Job Description

We are currently looking for a Tree Surgeon. You will be working based in Leicestershire

Monday - Friday

9am - 5pm

Temp Contract

Pay rate - £12.85ph 

Job Purpose

Tree surgeons will carry out inspections and hazard assessments to properly assess the health and potential danger of trees. This is an important part of the job as it will decide how much work must be performed, how long the work will take to complete and, for public sites, influences how the public might be affected. For private work, an inspection by a tree surgeon will involve discussion about what needs to be done, what the customer requires and should provide an estimate to cost, time and amount of disruption that may occur.

If a tree has dead or weak branches, the overall health of the tree will likely be at risk. A tree surgeon will identify branches that would be better off removed, and will climb the tree using harnesses to remove the branches. This is why a tree surgeon must be physically fit. ‘Climbers’ will likely have to climb very tall trees on a regular basis, which is a huge physical demand.

Removing the identified branches should make the tree lighter and therefore healthier, which will help save the tree from collapsing. The use of chainsaws and pruning equipment while suspended high off the ground means the job of a tree surgeon is highly dangerous, but experienced, contracted tree surgeons should always follow all the proper safety precautions to help prevent accidents.
