Need A Tree Felling Or Disassembling

Our tree surgeons are experts in the precise taking down of complicated, hazardous and big trees within confined places. They’ve felled trees in difficult places and are adept at manoeuvring through tight spaces.

A range of tree removal procedures may be utilised such as the use of cranes, specialist winch operations, directional felling or sectional dismantling. It all depends on the available space as to which method they will use.

Tree Felling

This is where the tree is cut from the base and then it falls to the ground in a controlled fashion. This is only done in areas that are safe from any potential damage to property or others. For large trees, however, this is often impossible due to the need for a lot of space for them to fall.

Tree Dismantling

This is useful to avoid any damage to property or persons, in areas where there is not a lot of space. This is a skilled job that involves removing trees in sections. Starting at the top, the tree must be cut into manageable sections. Next, the tree must be safely and securely lowered to earth using lowering ropes, slings, or in certain cases a crane.

The tree surgeons that we work with are experts in working in tight spaces, and will safely remove trees from your garden using the latest rigging methods.

To help prevent the fall going wrong, they will always use ropes and slings.

Tree Removal Due To Storm Damage

We recommend that you contact a professional tree surgeon to help you with any fallen trees or trees damaged from storms or lightening. It is very dangerous for non-trained people to try and deal with a fallen tree, as there are many objects that could be trapped underneath or around the tree, as well as any live power lines. Tree surgeons are highly skilled and have the experience to properly remove any tree damage.

Handling Storm Damaged Trees

Though they’re generally seen as being strong and eternal, trees can become at risk in adverse weather like strong winds & storms. Fierce storms and high winds have been seen to decimate trees and rip even the sturdiest and healthiest trees from the ground, sending them plunging to the ground, or onto power lines, buildings, neighbours’ gardens and vehicles.

How many times following strong winds have you heard of storm-damaged trees and dislodged branches blocking the road or damaging property. Aside from the danger and inconvenience it also will lead to expensive restorations.

The toughest decision following a windstorm isn’t how to remove the trees that are definitely down, that is pretty straightforward. The harder choice is whether or not any of the trees remaining standing are salvageable.

Certain trees that have been partially damaged in the storm can pose a future threat and may well have to be cut down and took out to prevent putting people & property at risk in months or even years in the future.

Other trees might be preserved by being pruned back, with their most damaged sections being ‘cut off’ similar to how a surgeon might take off a gangrenous leg. Others might require to get staked with guy ropes or held up with various other supports until they can re-develop the root structure they have to have to stand on their own.

If a storm has caused trees to land on buildings, our tree experts can be trusted to get rid of the damaged trees efficiently, quickly and safely to allow the building companies easy access to the building to begin maintenance and repairs on the affected properties and power cables.

Different Kinds Of Storm Damage

All of these kinds of damage creates a different prognosis for the trees’ future survival, however forming a prognosis is a job ideally left to a fully qualified arborist. An unqualified nonprofessional is far more liable to overlook a small detail that may separate one conclusion from another, like finding the splinters from a crown twist but missing the slight lean which indicates that the roots also failed.

There are basically 6 kinds of storm damage which a tree can’t typically stand up to:

  • Blowovers – these are where the entire tree falls down.
  • Stem Failures – this is where the trunk of the tree cracks above the ground, leading to the crown to fall or sag violently while the bottom section stays standing normally.
  • Root Failures – is where the root systems of the tree tear beneath the ground, resulting in the tree bending or swinging noticeably.
  • Branch Failures – is where several branches of the tree fall off.
  • Crown Twists – is where the trunk of the tree rotates enough to splinter, but stays up. This takes place most often on trees with very disproportionate crowns. The entire crown essentially ends up being a weather vane in a windstorm, twisting to follow the wind flow in a way that the trunk can’t.
  • Lightening Strikes – When lightening strikes the tree gets burned and electrocuted, but stays up, for now. Lightening hits have a several additional effects including massive water loss and opening a large amount of surface area up to pests and vermin, so a lightening-hit tree is typically at a much increased danger to fall despite the fact that it endured the initial storm.
