Most property owners with gardens will probably require tree advice of some sort one day and may seek advice on where best to find this. Two widely used sources are the Arboricultural Association which is the professional body that represents the industry or Tree officers employed by the local authority. In addition, there are numerous web sites that provide Arboricultural advice, however, speaking to those who have had practical experience may be more beneficial. Advice is also available on when is the best time to prune trees, how the work should be done and what sensible costs might be. Tree owners too should be cautious about receiving advice from unexpected individuals who happen to ‘be passing’ and profess to offer good quality advice and works at a good price. Advice here is to always get at least x 2 quotes for works before agreeing to anything.
