What are the reasons for tree removal?
Many causes lead to a tree being removed. Our primary concern is for you and your property’s safety. Trees are beautiful things but when they become weakened are a serious hazard. This weakening can be caused by several factors. It may simply be age or the tree may have become infected or diseased. Extreme weather may have caused damage or it may have an unsustainable growth direction. All of these factors put your tree at greater risk of splitting, snapping, and breakages. Other reasons for tree removal include for land clearance- if you need the space for construction or other works. Finally, you may choose to remove a tree if it is compromising other plant life by blocking sunlight.
Our team of expert arborists will first off assess your tree. When checking for disease, they will perform a thorough inspection before deciding on the best course of action- it could be that your tree can be saved, or it may need to be taken down. Once this has been discussed with you, they will work out, using specialist measures the most efficient way of removing the tree that keeps you and your surroundings safe and protected. Commonly, we use a ‘section tree felling’ approach which ensures controlled, manageable sections of your tree are removed one at a time.
Depending on the space surrounding your tree, we will use different measures to ensure utmost safety and control. Commonly in residential areas, we use a method known as ‘section tree felling’. This involves the specialised setting up of cables and supports to aid us as we cut down smaller sections of your tree and carefully lower them to the ground. This enables us to completely control the cutting, ensuring complete safety and protection of your property. With many years of experience, our expert arborists perform this highly skilled work safely and efficiently.
After your tree has been removed, a small stump will be left above ground. You may choose to leave this as it is, but commonly homeowners choose to have this removed also. This is because the stump runs a risk of becoming diseased and then passing it on to other plants in the area. It is also a trip hazard and some people consider it unsightly. In other cases, it needs to be removed for construction work to take place. There are several ways that this can be achieved but we highly recommend stump grinding. Please check out our ‘Stump Grinding’ page for more information on how best to have the stump removed.
