Do You Require A Tree Felling Or Disassembling

The tree surgeons who work with us are pros in the accurate dismantling of complicated, dangerous and big trees within confined places. They are skilled at navigating tight spaces and minimising noise and disruption.

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

Tree Felling

This is where the tree can be cut at the base and it will then fall to the ground without any damage. This is only done in areas that are safe from any potential damage to property or others. It is sometimes impossible to remove large trees in this way, as they require a lot of space 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. It is difficult to dismantle 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 prevent the the tree falling in the wrong direction, they always use ropes and slings. They may also use wedges to stop it from going the other way.

Storm Damage Tree Removal

If you are concerned about a tree that has fallen or has been damaged from lightning or a storm, we recommend calling a qualified tree surgeon. Untrained persons should never attempt to deal with a tree that has fallen because of all the objects that might be under or around it and any live power lines. The tree surgeons have a lot of experience and are able to remove any tree debris properly.

Dealing With Trees Damaged In A Storm

Despite the fact they are typically taken as being really strong and eternal, trees may end up being defenceless in extreme weather such as strong winds and storms. Intense storms and high winds have been seen to annihilate trees and rip even the sturdiest & healthiest trees out of the soil, sending them plunging to the ground, or onto buildings, power lines, vehicles and neighbours’ gardens.

How many times after a storm have you heard about storm-damaged trees & dislodged branches damaging property or blocking the road. In addition to the inconvenience & danger it additionally may lead to expensive repairs.

The most difficult decision following a storm isn’t how to dispose of the trees that are definitely down, that’s fairly easy. The harder choice is whether some of the trees left standing are salvageable.

Some trees that have been in part harmed in the windstorm might pose a potential future risk and may have to be disassembled and removed to prevent placing people and property at risk in many months or even years to come.

Some other trees maybe conserved by being trimmed back, with their worst damaged sections being ‘severed’ just like how a surgeon may remove a gangrenous leg. Others may need to be staked down with guy cables or supported with additional supports until they are able to re-develop the root structure they need to have to stand on their own.

If a storm has caused trees to land on property, our tree specialists can be trusted to take away the affected trees efficiently, safely and quickly to allow the building crews access to the building to start maintenance and repairs on the affected properties and power lines.

Different Types Of Storm Damage

Each one of these types of damage causes a varied diagnosis for the trees’ long term survival, but forming a diagnosis is a task ideally entrusted to a fully certified arborist. An unqualified nonprofessional is much more liable to disregard a small detail that may differentiate one verdict from another, like noticing the splinters from a crown twist but overlooking the slight lean which shows that the roots also snapped.

There are generally 6 types of storm damage which a tree can’t normally sustain:

  • Blowovers – these are where the whole tree falls down.
  • Stem Failures – this is where the trunk of the tree breaks above the earth, resulting in the trees crown to fall or sag strongly whilst the lower section stays standing normally.
  • Root Failures – is when the roots of the tree tear below the earth, leading to the tree bending or swaying considerably.
  • Limb Failures – is where one or more branches of the tree break off.
  • Crown Twists – is when the trunk of the tree turns sufficient to split, but stays up. This happens most often on trees with very lopsided crowns. The whole crown essentially turns into a weather vane in a storm, twisting to follow the wind flow in a manner in which the trunk is unable to.
  • Lightening Strikes – When lightening strikes the tree gets burned and electrocuted, but stays up, at the moment. Lightening strikes have a number of secondary effects including massive water loss and opening a large amount of surface area up to pests and vermin, so a tree hit by lightening is typically at a substantially increased danger to fall even if it endured the initial windstorm.
