Tree felling may be required for a number of reasons
Many trees are protected and permission to remove them will be required from the local council. We can check for protection orders on your behalf and put forward a proposal for necessary work. We have a Tree Survey and Report Service for this purpose which will outline essential work that has to done.
Work on protected trees can be done to maintain the health of the tree, to prevent storm damage, damage to property and for public safety reasons. We also offer a Tree Relocation Service - which involves removing the whole tree and planting it in another location. We recently removed several trees for the British Museum at St Pancras and successfully relocated them at another site.
We work to the highest standards at the most competitive rates in London. Have a look at our Price Guide which gives details of the work we are typically asked to do and the costs involved.
Where there is enough space, a tree is felled in it's entirety using traditional techniques and cuts. The area is assessed d beforehand to ensure a safe, controlled and damage free fell.
On large trees or where space is restricted (often the case in London) a tree is cut down in sections using specialist climbing equipment. If required, the tree stump can be removed.
We sometimes use cherry pickers (mobile platforms) to gain assess to trees.
This is usually done when the tree is too dangerous to climb. The tree is cut into small manageable pieces and lowered to the ground.
For safety reasons, cherry pickers are also used if tree and branch clearance around power lines is required.
We've carried out numerous crane operations around London to help remove some very large tree on sites with very little access.
Cranes are a good option when working on extremely large or dangerous trees.
Using a crane is the quickest and cleanest way to proceed with tree removal but normally is only reserved for large trees and dangerous specimens.
