Tree Felling

If a tree could potentially cause damage to your grounds or the surrounding area, then it is imperative to have an expert investigate the issue and look to resolve it.

When trees are decaying, diseased and dead, felling is the right course of action as it will safely cut down the entire tree. Irrespective of the task in hand, we will ensure that the task is undertaken safely and skilfully. When the tree is too unstable to climb, a crane will be used in order to guarantee the safety of our staff and your grounds.

There are two techniques for tree felling; sectioning/sectional felling and directional felling. Each process involves the eventual removal of a tree from the stump upward but the system applied for each differs somewhat significantly.

Sectioning/Section Felling

Sectioning or section felling involves the complete dissembling of a tree into sections before removing the waste. To safely execute such a task involves the use of lowering ropes and swings. The largest tree limbs are cut off first and lowered from the top down using lowering ropes before the complete removal of any other branches. The trunk is then dismantled and removed in sections. Sectioning or section felling is more commonly used on projects being carried in small or tight spaces or when there is a potential for property damage. 

Directional Felling

Directional felling can be less timely than section felling due to the direct approach of the technique. The procedure entails cutting a tree from its base and allowing it to fall to the ground in a controlled and safe manner into a suitable landing zone. Lowering ropes and swings are also used to assist and guide the tree on its descent. A directional fell is more commonly carried out in woodland and forests or in areas where there is enough space for the tree to be felled without the risk of damage to the surrounding area. However, it is also possible for smaller trees to be felled in larger domestic gardens or properties.
