What type of tree care do you provide?

Can you care for the rest of my garden as well as trees?
Of course! Unlike other tree surgeons that may only be able to help with tree care and stump grinding work, we also specialise in garden maintenance and garden fencing. From turfing and general garden rubbish clearance to patio and fence installation, you can count our skilled services.
Why should I get a tree stump removed?
Tree stumps take up valuable space in your garden, reduce the aesthetic appeal of your property and are a trip hazard. If not for those reasons alone, left trunks can also begin to grow new sprouts or even rot, attracting mould and fungi to your Caterham garden.
What if my tree has a Tree Preservation Order on it?
A Tree Preservation Order (TPO) is put in place to protect trees of a particular species, age or those inside of a conservation area. If you require work carried on a TPO registered tree, permission will need to be obtained from your area’s local planning authority.
Do you have adequate insurance?
Yes. JS Tree Care is fully insured to carry out tree surgery, stump grinding, garden maintenance and garden fencing services in and around Caterham. We provide public liability insurance for your peace of mind.
When is the best time of year to have work carried out on my trees/hedges?
Non-urgent work on trees and hedges must not be undertaken during bird nesting or breeding season, as part of the UK Wildlife and Countryside Protection Act. For trees, different species will want to be pruned at different times of the year. Contact our tree surgeons for expert advice about this.
What do I need to consider before installing new garden fencing?
Before having a new fence installed at your property, you may need to consult with your property survey to establish who belongs the fence. It is illegal to install garden fencing on the other side of your property line, without obtaining permission from your neighbour.
