Take Downs (Felling Trees)

When a tree has come to the end of its life, has become unsafe due to decay or is simply unwanted it is time to remove it as safely as possible from its situation. This is called ‘Tree Felling’.

Our team of skilled tree surgeons will be able to assess how to do this in the best possible way, ensuring that the tree is correctly dismantled and doesn’t cause damage to its surroundings.

On larger trees, it is likely that there will be a number of lateral branches that overhang into neighbouring gardens, in this instance it will be necessary to set up a lowering rig to manage the weight of each branch down to the ground.

On very rare occasions, it may be possible to ‘Fell’ the tree in question – this must only be carried out by a highly experienced, trained tree surgeon.

Our Assessment Process of Tree Felling

As part of our initial visit to assess the Take Down of your tree(s) we will discuss with you:

Once the tree is down, it may need Stump Grinding or Poisoning to prevent regrowth.

Once we have carried out our checks with your local authority and know the protection status of your tree(s), we will then prepare you a written quote, which will detail the work as agreed.
