Felling

 

Tree Removal and Felling

For various reasons it may become necessary to remove a tree and there are two main ways of doing this, dismantling or directional felling.

Dismantling - very often space is limited and the tree must be taken down piece by piece. If the area below the tree is clear from obstructions small cut branches can be allowed to fall to the ground. When branches are large and heavy then lowering ropes must be used.

Directional Felling - where space and safety permit the tree can then be felled in one piece.
