Tree Felling – Tree Removal

Why Tree Removal is Important

Trees which are compromised can present a danger to the public, property and yourself. Although we ideally like to work to preserve the tree, sometimes removing the tree is the only option.
Tree removal may be required for a number of reasons including when a tree has become hazardous or if the tree is now unsuitable for its location. Tree felling can be necessary for diseased trees or ones that have significant damage that is beyond help.

When Should a Tree be Removed?
It is recommended to consider removing a tree when more than 50% of the tree has irreversible damage that presents a hazard to you or the public. Diseased trees need to be removed or treated immediately to stop the spread of the disease to the surrounding areas.

How we Carry out Tree Removal

The tree removal process starts with a thorough assessment of the tree and its surroundings.

Sometimes we can prolong the life of the tree without the need for tree felling, by reducing its size or through the removal of rotten sections.

Once the risk assessment has been conducted, we look for the safest way to remove the tree, without causing damage to the surrounding area and put a plan of action in place.

Tree Removal on Private Land

Tree removal on private land is a fairly straight forward job. The task will be completed by removing small sections of the tree at a time, lowering them carefully to the ground. The trunk is then cut up into logs which can either be removed or kept on site depending on the owner’s preference. The tree stump is cut close to the ground and then can either be left or removed using specialist stump grinding equipment.

Tree Felling & Public Spaces

When removing trees which intrude into public spaces, we work with the relevant authoritative bodies to seek any necessary permissions. We then cordon off the area and conduct a risk assessment to ensure the safety of everyone involved in the tree felling, as well as the public. We can take care of this whole process for you, making everything as simple as possible.

Removing Trees Protected by Tree Preservation Orders

If you need help with removing trees that are protected by Tree Preservation Orders or Conservation Areas, we will handle any applications to the council and paperwork to obtain permission for the works to take place. We want to make the process as easy as possible for you.
