Our range of tree care services wouldn’t be complete without professional Lothian and Edinburgh tree felling, tree cutting and tree removal services. This service is frequently required by our customers in the region and we have downed hundreds of trees over the past few years at the request of our clients.
Felling a tree does not mean that we do not care about the environment but rather that we understand that sometimes it is necessary to replace them with a stronger, better type of tree if the tree was affected by a disease for example. Or in other cases, the tree might have been damaged by a storm, heavy rain or any other natural disaster, and needs to be removed as it has become a hazard to property or access ways.
This is an essential task in commercial forestry operations and in residential or built up settings or on country estates the felling operations need to be carried out with more precision and care so as not to damage people or property nearby. Trees can weigh a huge amount and with the wind helping to blow them over can cause a lot of damage so its never advisable for an unskilled operator to try felling a tree by him or her self. This is definitely a job better left to a professional tree feller and Arborist Direct Edinburgh tree felling professionals will be happy to help.
Preparation is extremely important. We have to plan ahead and asses the surroundings and possible obstacles as well as considering the best way to remove any tree sections once the tree is down and needs to be hauled away. A safe working practice consists of warning other people if they work, pass by or live in the area while bringing the appropriate type of forestry equipment.
The felling direction must be planned in advance and any large protruding branches may be best pruned off before felling. We will check which way the tree may be leaning and take the wind into consideration too and create a clear path of retreat just in case something goes wrong. It is often necessary to also use a winch or to physically pull a tree in a certain direction to ensure its direction of fall. This way, we can be sure that the tree felling service will be performed in the best way possible without anybody getting hurt or any property getting damaged in the process.
Once felled most residential or commercial clients need the tree cutting up and removing from site however if you would like the wood cut and left for future use just let us know and well be happy to help. Stripping the branches from the trunk and chopping the trunk into usable or movable sections is done in second with industrial forestry machinery but usually built up residential or commercial settings don’t allow for the access or use of such large machinery and the work has to be done with skilled chainsaw operators.
Fully striping a tree and removing the branches and truck and leaving the garden or area as a usable space again is just the final part of the service. Even the largest or most complicated tasks or projects can be handled by our team of professional Edinburgh tree felling specialists.
If a tree is dying from disease, then the best advice may be to remove it completely to minimise the chance of spreading the disease. Our arborists and Edinburgh tree removal experts will give you advice based on their assessment and can advise on alternative species if you want to replace the lost tree.
If a tree dies, plant another in its place.
Tree felling usually cuts the trunk off as close to the ground as possible can also be done by cutting the tree. It will not remove the roots but at least you will be free from the obstruction or hazard that was caused by the tree.
