Tree felling is the process of cutting down a tree or trees, this can be for a number of reasons such as disease, danger to safety or landscaping. It involves cutting down the tree and, in some cases, removing the roots.
If you are looking to remove trees from your land, there are multiple things that need to be considered, such as if the tree has a TPO (Tree Protection Order) – you can check this with your local council – as well as if the tree is on your land and if cutting down the tree will impact the surrounding wildlife.
It is important to enlist professional tree felling services from a tree surgeon such as Essex Tree Brothers. Tree removal can be incredibly dangerous, and it needs to be carried out by an experienced professional to ensure no harm is caused to other people or property.
Our tree felling and removal service is completed in the safest and most ethical way possible and we have experience in using mobile elevated platforms, cranes and rigging equipment to complete our work with the required health and safety qualifications to meet legislation. With over ten years in the industry, we have experience in felling trees of all shapes, sizes and locations.
When felling a tree with roots that need removing, we have specialist equipment to break down the stump and grind it into a mix of soil and small particles which can be used as mulch for your garden or removed from site.
One of the most common reasons for tree felling is to remove trees that are dead, dying or diseased. There are many different diseases that can affect trees and without swift tree felling this can spread to other trees and destroy huge percentages of tree species population.
Common tree diseases in the UK include Ash Dieback, Acute Oak Decline, Dutch Elm Disease and Plane Wilt. If you suspect your tree has a disease, there are many resources online where you can check, or we can help assess and advise and arrange for tree felling and removal.
Sometimes tree removal might be required following severe weather, strong winds or lightening can cause trees to fall and for the safety of the public they need to be removed as soon as possible or if they are looking precarious – need to be cut down before they do fall down.
Where trees grow near a home or buildings, sometimes trees and their roots can become disruptive and cause or be worsened by subsidence. They might cause structural damage or impact electrical wires or drainage pipes – therefore sometimes making tree removal essential.
Or you may simply need professional tree felling for aesthetic reasons, to allow more light into a garden or building or to make an area feel more open and accessible or to make way for building work.
