The average hourly rate for a tree surgeon is £40 – 50. It is common for tree surgeons to work in teams of two to three due to the inherent risk of the work.
So hiring a team will cost around £400 – 500 per day for a smaller firm.
If you go for a bigger company or live in London or the south-east, the cost could be closer to £900 per day.
