Why Tree Surgeons need liability insurance

There are many obvious risks for this trade. Most of these come from the wide variety of tools and equipment which is used. Most of these have sharp edges and therefore create a relatively high safety issue to members of the public. Also, the felling of trees means nearby property run the risk of being damaged. It is therefore essential to have in place the appropriate public liability insurance policy.

This cover provides protection from accidents that happen during tree surgery work that you could be liable for, which in turn could result in financial difficulties for you and your company. Public liability insurance for tree surgeons is not compulsory by law but vital to ensure your business’ financial stability.

Common types of claims

  • A branch that you have removed with your chainsaw falls and smashes into a window of a nearby house
  • Your chipper sends out a chunk of wood which injures a member of the public walking past
  • A chainsaw is dropped from a tree and lands on top of a nearby car causing considerable damage

This cover is optional but should be highly considered. Furthermore, if you have employees using rigging equipment such as ropes to climb tree trunks, you may wish to consider employers liability insurance in case they have an accident. You may also want to consider plant cover for any chippers, mulchers, shredders or splitters that you use.
