Tree Removal

Occasionally the best or only solution is to remove whole trees. Whether it is due to the tree being dead or diseased, or it has outgrown its surroundings to the point of becoming a risk, there are two main methods of tree removal.

Tree Felling


Tree felling involves cutting a tree at its base and letting the whole tree fall to the ground. This method only works if there is space available to accommodate the tree in one piece.


Sectional Felling/Dismantling


Trees in domestic gardens are usually much larger than the garden they have grown in. When the tree can’t be felled in one piece, the tree will need to be climbed and dismantled branch by branch. The trunk would then be cut into sections and removed. Rigging techniques could be used in this method to lower pieces to the ground avoiding structures, fences or other delicate targets to prevent damage.
