Tree surgeons cover a varied amount of services including tree felling and thinning. Below you will find details on these services and an explanation of what this involves.
Commonly more know as a forestry term tree felling is the cutting down and removal of trees in a safe manner. When looking at removing a tree many people think it looks easy but is extremely difficult and dangerous if you do not have the correct knowledge and tools to do the job correctly.
Before beginning to remove the tree there is a lot of planning involved to ensure you know how the tree will fall and in which direction and that it will not damage or harm property, people or other trees in the process. When you begin to start cutting into the tree usually with a chainsaw you may need to take a different approach to each one and take notches out of the tree in a certain way to allow the tree to fall in the right direction.
When the tree begins to fall this present further danger as there is no way to predict what debris might come with this like branches breaking off and fly through the air.
Once the tree is felled and removed you would be left with a stump for the tree. Please see our
stump grinding service advising how we would be able to deal with this for you.
Thinning of a tree is the removal of selected branches to help balance the density of the tree and reduce the stress load going through the tree. This is removed from the crown of the tree including the inner crown. What and how much you remove is very important as over a full year no more than 30% of the foliage should be removed.
Thinning can be done as part of the reduction or shaping process or when you have low hanging branches. Ideally you would look at tree thinning when the tree requires more light and wind to pass through the crown.
