Tree's are commonly felled when they are dead and no further growth is present. Some tree's are felled because they have become unmanageable and dangerous to neighbouring structures. As a last resort, when there is no alternative the felling and removal of a tree can be the only solution.
We fell all sizes of trees and specialise in restricted area felling where the tree is removed in small sections by sectional felling.
An alternative to felling is 'Pollarding' where the tree canopy is removed leaving only the tree stem, While pollarding is not suitable for all tree species, it is a pruning technique that is usually done to large growing, deciduous trees that sprout readily after pruning. The technique is commonly applied for the purpose of maintaining street trees in confined spaces. Rather than allowing a tree to grow to full size, which could cause interference with overhead cable utilities and structures, pollarding can keep a tree healthy at a much smaller and manageable size.
We can advise the best plan of action for any problematic tree's on your property.
