Ensuring Safety Above All: The crucial role of PPE in Tree Surgery, regardless of the cost.

PPE was one of the most frequently used terms over the past few years. However this essential Personal Protective Equipment isn’t just used within the medical arena. Here are some basic costings using PPE within the world of Tree Surgery.

Boots – £270

Chainsaw trousers – £270

Helmet and earplugs – £130

Basic chainsaw certificate – £850

First aid certificate – £120

T-shirts, sweaters, waterproofs and other work specific clothes – £350.

Safety is crucial in tree surgery, where chainsaws and wood chippers work together. As tree surgery specialist, Evoke Tree Services know this. PPE is more than just following the rules; it’s a profound duty to protect life and limb. The stakes are very high; even a small safety breach can lead to devastating scenarios. So, Evoke Tree Services sees PPE not only as the law, but also as the right thing to do, which demonstrates our commitment to the safety of our employees, our clients and our responsibility to the local trees. From hand equipment like chainsaws, secateurs, and hand saws, to the right clothing, we’re focused on using the right gear, regardless of cost.

Chainsaws, are like swords in the tree-cutting business, providing the perfect combination of speed and accuracy where power is needed. When these tools are in the hands our well trained staff, they are used with care and safety. Operatives wear chainsaw trousers, these have ballistic fibres that are strengthened to help protect against potential chainsaw strikes. Aside from that, safety helmets with visors and ear defenders to protect the workers from the high decibel noise of the chainsaw and chipper engines. Carefully chosen and thoroughly tested, each piece of PPE protects against the storm of danger that could potentially lurk in the tree canopy.

For finesse and delicacy, our team use hand saws (or silky saws), a simple tool but with surgical accuracy. A smaller tool it might be but the chance of danger is there if not used correctly. Even though they don’t look like much, hand saws require the same level of safety respect as their more dangerous peers!

In the pursuit of speed and profit, it may be tempting by some to dismiss safety as a luxury to be enjoyed only when possible. However, Evoke Tree Services, we disagree with this viewpoint. Our team understand that the true cost of safety extends beyond financial considerations; it encompasses saving lives, maintaining employment, and preserving ecosystems. As a result, Evoke Tree Services is steadfast in its commitment to using the best PPE, regardless of the cost.

Can't speak highly enough of this team. Professional, experienced, polite etc etc. 4th time they've been to me ( I don't live in a forest , just got lots of large unruly trees). Ryan and Calum did an amazing job on them. No complaints as they ploughed through all my requests in the pouring rain. Mustn't forget Kate in the office and Billy who leads the team. All of them are fantastic. If you need any tree work Evoke are the only ones to call. Thanks guys . Photo before and after on the front hedge

I've used Evoke Tree Services for crown reduction to my large oak tree, hedge trimming, ivy removal and now log supplies. I will continue to use them as their customer service and attention to detail is second to none. Billy and the team are brilliant and I would highly recommend them to anyone seeking a service they provide. Thanks Evoke!

Second time using Yvoke and can't be more pleased. The business is knowledgeable and reputable. The last couple of days the guys have been hard at work, they are professional, polite and so hard-working and left my garden super clean. They worked so hard. Could not be more pleased - thanks all and see you next time.

We were delighted by the work Evoke did on our hedge. This was a significant pruning but was done with care and commonsense. It resulted in a job that was superb - and looked better than anticipated. Their professionalism was appreciated; we can highly recommend the company. Jim

We have used Evoke for our tree work for several years. As always, a very well-done job from start to finish, including the initial visit and obtaining the appropriate permissions from the WHC. All the trees were pruned as requested to a very good shape and the site was cleared of all rubbish.

Good service, provided by nice staff. The team handled the application process required for the removal of a number of very large lleyandii, plus the removal and stump grinding. Even dealing with having to work around a large amount of waste material and old fencing from previous owners.
