Reasons For Removing Trees
Sometimes trees just need to be all together and there are a variety of reasons why a customer would like a tree removed, felled or sectionally dismantled.
We all love trees as they are an important part of our eco-system, biodiversity and beneficial in many ways in the natural world that we all live in. As a company with preservation in mind, locally and globally, we do everything we can to help save them and keep all trees that we come across healthy and in good shape. There will always be trees that need to be removed, by whatever means necessary, this could be through disease, damage or health and safety reasons.
Dead and Dying Trees
None of us likes to see a tree die, but sadly and unfortunately this is the case, trees do have a life span, and come to the end of their life cycle. When a tree dies, especially a large tree, it can become a hazard as it will gradually become weaker and lose all it's strength. This can become a serious matter as the now-dead tree cannot take what natures elements throw at it, like storms, strong winds, ice and snow. The results can be a branch or limb failure or the whole tree falling, it can be very dangerous to human life if the tree is situated close to a commercial building, residential home or by the roadside. If you are in any doubt that a tree is maybe deceased on your property, please get in touch with us, we can make an assessment and advise you if the tree in question needs removing. Please remember that you are responsible for the trees on your property or land.
Adverse and severe British weather conditions can arrive at any time and can cause unavoidable tree damage, including lightning strikes and gale-force winds. Unfortunately, lightning strikes, more common than you think, can kill a tree outright, but this can be a slow process, taking many months or years for the damaged tree to show the full extent of the initial strike. Strong winds can sometimes be the culprit and break off a large limb of a tree, this can cause the tree to be unbalanced and a risk factor. Always best to get the tree inspected if you are not sure as it might risk further damage if the tree decides to fall through through heavy leaning to one side due to the loss of heavy branch loss.
A strong healthy tree has great abilities to survive the harshest weather conditions nature can throw at it. But just like any biological living life form they can get sick or become infected by the disease. Most trees have some sort of organisms and pathogens that are alien to their form, and most of the time they live happily side by side and co-exist. Occasionally a tree will get hit with a disease that will completely overwhelm the tree. Sometimes we can step in and act like a doctor and help the diseased and sick tree, much like a doctor treats you as a patient, but other times there is nothing in our power we can do to save the tree in question. The infected tree needs to be removed before it falls and causes damage to your property or human life itself.
Tree Removals and Our Methods
We have safely removed thousands of trees throughout the Nottinghamshire county. Whichever method we use a great deal of thought goes into the process of how to remove the tree in the most efficient way possible, and taking the tree to the ground in a safely and cleanly, with the minimum of fuss. Our many years of experience in tree surgery and arborist industry plus the latest advanced equipment keeps us busy, ahead of our competitors and in demand at all times.
What we will never do is recommend a tree removal when in our view, is not necessary. If a tree can be saved or cured if that is the case, an alternative method will be advised. Our expertise in surveying a potential tree removal is always done with caution and consideration and with the customers best interests. Whatever the outcome of our survey we will guide you into making the best decision for your tree's future,
There are many variables and methods that we could utilise and use to take down and remove a tree. Every trees structure differs in some way or another and we as tree experts will always pick the method that is the safest and offers the least danger to the surroundings and our workforce. This could entail a variety of specialised equipment, techniques and skillset by our highly trained professional team.

The following information is the methods that we use to safely remove a tree.
Felling and taking a tree down in one piece
After estimating a trees total height an assessment will be made to where the tree will ideally fall after cutting at the base. Usually in an urban and residential environment, this is not an option and the tree in question will need to be taken down in sections if there is insufficient room to drop the tree safely, this is called sectional dismantling and described in more detail in the next section.
If there is plenty of space to fell the tree in one piece, the tree surgeon and cutter of the tree will check the symmetry and how the tree leans, also looking and surveying for defects in the tree which could change or affect the fall of the tree are taken into consideration. A rope is attached to the top of the tree just before a notch is cut into the base of the trunk. Once the rope is set in place our tree removal experts will be able to use this as a guide to direct the falling tree to a desired space on the ground once the cutting method begins. A notch also called a wedge in tree surgery terminology will be cut to help move and direct the tree were to travel to on the ground. The end and final cut, also known as the back cut determines the direction of the fall and can indeed be altered by cutting more or less of one side. The wood that's left between the rear cut and therefore the wedge is the hinge wood. This holds our felled tree for a quick second and pulls it to the direction with more hinge wood.
Tree Sectional Dismantling
Our most common method of tree removal we use in our urban society these days is called sectional dismantling. This process is used when buildings, structures and utilities like power cables and roadsides have to be taken into consideration. It would not be possible to let a tree fall or try to guide a tree down to the ground as the risk would outweigh the reward. The damage caused if something went wrong would be an expensive venture if a building was struck or a human being for example.
The same process would apply as before and the tree evaluated beforehand. Our tree surgeons are very experienced in looking at a tree and working out how they will dismantle the tree as they have done these thousands of times before.
First, our tree climber will find a centre point to set up and secure their rigging equipment. The surgeon climbing the tree will start to cut and lower all the branches and limbs to guys on the ground. When only the tree trunk remains the surgeon will start to cut sections away from the tree, working from the top down. If they think that the cut sections propose a risk by dropping them, they will be lowered down and guided slowly using ropes by the men working below. You can rest assured that our team of tree surgeons and arborists have all the necessary equipment, manpower and skillset to complete any tree removal.
Cutting up the now grounded Tree
Above are the methods that we use to take a large tree to the ground, once it's there that's when all the real hard work and graft starts to happen. Our specialist ground workers with chainsaws cut up and dismantle the now grounded tree. We make a point of using and re-cycling everything, so nothing is wasted, we have places that we can drop off different types of wood, in the knowledge that it will be destined to be used again. Depending on the type of tree, some wood will go to sawmills to be cut into timber or may be made into bespoke furniture. Some trees will be pulped down and turned into paper. The smaller branches and twigs can be turned into a mulch once ran through our powerful chipping machine. Once all the tree parts are loaded onto our trucks, our team will have a good tidy up before we leave your residential property or commercial premises.

Reasons For Felling Trees - A quick rundown
Any tree that is dead poses a risk and should be removed as soon as possible.
The Longer that you wait to remove this dead tree, the more unstable and dangerous it becomes. Once the tree is too risky to climb, it will most likely incur extra expense and costs due to specialist equipment needed to take the tree down safely.
Here are a few things to look out for.
Splits and Cracks
Dead Branches or Limbs
Thin and patchy leaf coverage
Branches that look like they are dying
No leaves what so ever
There are many more signs to look for, so if you are not sure we can survey the tree and make a professional assessment.
Remember, a dead tree can be dangerous for many reasons and depending on its actual location, life-threatening too.
It is always best to remove a dying tree before it becomes totally deceased. This will make our job safer and easier, thus saving you money as fewer difficulties involved in the removal.
