Our tree surgeons are often called out to situations in which tree removal is necessary. It may be that a specimen is badly diseased and as a result, has become structurally unsound. In these cases, carrying out a tree felling can help safeguard property and passers-by, while reducing the chance that the disease spreads. Other times, Uckfield, Crowborough and East Grinstead residents require tree removal to make space for a development, or because the tree has become a nuisance.
While tree felling is often unfortunate, it’s an important aspect of what tree surgeons do, and it’s vital that it’s done right. A botched tree removal by unqualified or inexperienced tree surgeons can be disastrous, putting people’s personal safety at risk and causing untold damage to property. That’s why you should choose Global Tree Care to handle this kind of job. With a perfect 10 rating on Checkatrade and a huge amount of experience within the industry, you know we can be trusted!
Keep in mind that there are situations in which you may be unable to have a tree felled. One example is if the local authority in Uckfield, Crowborough or East Grinstead has put in place a Tree Protection Order. Another is if the tree, though partly over your property, isn’t considered to be rooted on your property. As your local tree surgeon, Global Tree Care will always be able to advise you on the best course of action and ensure you stay on the right side of the law.
Below, we’ve explained the two different methods that our tree surgeons employ, directional tree felling and sectional tree removal. Should you have any questions regarding the below, or wish to call us out to look at a specific tree in the Uckfield, Crowborough or East Grinstead area to figure out exactly how a tree removal can be accomplished, don’t hesitate to call us on 07934 338 217.
Directional Tree Felling – In wide, open spaces where people and property aren’t close by, our tree surgeons will most likely opt for directional tree felling. This involves making a precise cut at the base of the trunk and guiding the tree to fall at a pre-determined angle.
Sectional Tree Removal – This method is ideal for busier areas of Uckfield, Crowborough or East Grinstead. It sees a tree surgeon take down a tree piece by piece. We’ll use harnesses and safety equipment to scale the tree, and carefully and methodically cut down key branches and boughs. Sectional tree removal works in areas frequented by the public, or close-by valuable property.
After a tree felling or tree removal is completed, we can remove the stump and any roots using a powerful machine that will reduce them to a fine woodchip. We can leave this woodchip with you, for use as a rich and fertile mulch, or take it with us for recycling. If you’d rather we leave the stump for whatever reason, we’re happy to oblige.
