Prices and Cost Estimates
Arborist-Direct Aberdeen provides a free cost estimate for each specific job, once the scope of work has been agreed with the client. All cost estimates will be clearly explained by either our professional Arborists or an Aberdeen Tree Surgeon on our team. Written cost estimates are usually provided for all significant work projects; occasionally an estimate may be delayed if environmental or local authority planning permission is needed to confirm a work program on trees subject to Tree Preservation Orders. General prices cannot be provided without our specialist undertaking a site survey; this is because all trees and access routes are different – consequently manning levels and equipment requirements will also need to be individually scoped before a reasonable price estimate can be arrived at.

Tree Preservation Orders
A Tree Preservation Order is an order made by a local planning authority in England/ Scotland to protect specific trees, groups of trees or woodlands in the interests of amenity. An Order prohibits the:
of trees without the local planning authority’s written consent. If consent is given, it can be subject to conditions which have to be followed. In the Secretary of State’s view, cutting roots is also a prohibited activity and requires the authority’s consent.
A local Aberdeen tree surgeon or arborist from Arborist Direct Aberdeen will be happy to advise you.
What are a tree owner’s responsibilities?
Owners of protected trees must not carry out, or cause or permit the carrying out of, any of the prohibited activities without the written consent of the local authority. As with owners of unprotected trees, they are responsible for maintaining their trees, with no statutory rules setting out how often or to what standard. The local planning authority cannot require maintenance work to be done to a tree just because it is protected. However, the authority can encourage good tree management, particularly when determining applications for consent under a Tree Preservation Order. This will help to maintain and enhance the amenity provided by protected trees.
