What is it?
Perhaps you’ve just moved onto a new site and trees are disrupting planned building work, or maybe one is causing obstruction at your home.
Either way, you’ll need to enlist the help of a trustworthy and reliable felling team – as there are many steps involved in tree removal.
Obstacles such as overhead lines, roads and building need to be considered.
- Checking the felling direction
It’s important to consider the tree’s natural direction, and clear a path for it to fall.
- Pruning the trunk
The trunk should be pruned to remove branches and twigs that may get in the way.
- Deciding on cutting technique
The correct method should be used based on the tree’s size and slope.
- Examining for diseases
If trees are infested with rot, fibres are weakened, affecting the felling process – which must be accounted for.
- Choosing the right tools
There are many different felling tools for every size and type of tree, and for every individual situation. For example, ropes and winches may be required.
