Why be an Arborist?

Being a London arborist is truly thrilling yet rewarding. It is a continuous opportunity to push yourself in being the best possible version of yourself every day. It is one of the most exciting, exhilarating and rewarding professions out there!!

What does it take to be a great Arborist?

It takes a mixture of passion, skill, focus, drive, teamwork and determination; as no two days are ever the same. One day we may be pruning a small apple tree, taking delicate care on how and where we make every single cut, and the next we will be removing a huge Oak tree leaning over a roof top overlooking the whole of London’s horizons.

What is the difference between a Tree Surgeon and an Arborist?

A Tree Surgeon understands 'how' to prune/cut a tree, they study and practice for years to perfect their skill, continuously developing their competence in the method in efficiently removing and maintaining all trees.

An Arborist not only understands how to cut a tree, but also understands 'why' we cut a tree. This takes years of academics and study. Continuously updating their knowledge whilst working with industry organisations to keep up-to-date with the best practices and research to be able to truly deliver expert advice and information, for the best long-term success and maintenance of your trees.

Why use an Arborist?

Arborists specialize in the care of individual trees. They are knowledgeable about the needs of trees and are trained and equipped to provide proper care. Hiring an arborist is a decision that should not be taken lightly. Proper tree care is an investment that can lead to substantial returns. Well cared-for trees are attractive and can add considerable value to your property. Poorly maintained trees can be a significant liability, and an be very costly in the long run.

Pruning or removing trees, especially large trees, can be dangerous work. Tree work should be done only by those trained and equipped to work safely in trees.

Who do we work with?

Thor's Trees work with a variety of clients from private domestic home owners, through to landlords, private and public sector partners; including estate agents, property management agencies, property development firms, Churches and local schools.
