Tree Felling & Tree Removal

What is Tree Felling?

Tree felling, also referred to as tree cutting or tree chopping, is the service most commonly associated with tree surgeons. It involves the controlled process of cutting down a tree and bringing it to the ground.

We understand that deciding to remove a tree can be daunting. Clients often wonder about feasibility, especially if the tree is large or close to their property. In such cases, we confidently provide a clear and simple solution.

Tree felling demands careful planning, appropriate equipment, and skilled execution to ensure safety and minimise environmental impact. It is typically conducted for various purposes, including timber harvesting, hazard mitigation, land clearing, and urban development.

Our Approach

With years of experience, we have refined our process allowing us to get the best possible results. We begin with assessing the tree’s condition, size, location, and surrounding environment.

For us, safety measures are paramount, thats why our Warrington tree surgeons will create a clear plan to determine the direction in which the tree should fall to avoid obstacles and minimise risks to both people, buildings, fences and the like.

During tree felling, a series of well-placed cuts are made near the tree’s base. The notch cut is typically made on the side facing the intended falling direction. This cut is followed by the felling cut on the opposite side, which is slightly above the notch’s bottom. Once these cuts are made, the tree begins to lean and fall in the desired direction.


Our proficient and professionally trained chainsaw operators utilise wedges and guiding ropes to control the tree’s descent, ensuring it lands precisely where intended.

During the tree’s fall, additional cuts may be necessary to prevent it from becoming entangled in nearby trees or structures, a scenario known as “hung up.”

Once the tree is on the ground, our team proceeds to cut it into manageable sections for processing or removal.

Tree Removal Advice

Inadequate experience and a lack of proper training in tree care practices have the potential lead to serious tree damage or even damage to your property or the people around you.
Always seek professional advice.

Removing large trees is a specialised task that requires professional expertise and often involves multiple steps:

Assessment, Safety Measures, Tree Felling, Sectioning, Stump Removal and Cleanup.

It is essentially taken down section by section, or if space allows removed all in one go using a crane.

When removing a tree, we can either leave the stump in place, or if needed, use our stump grinder machine and remove the leftover stump upon request.

Nick and his friendly team took down a selection of trees that were growing right up against our house. The whole process, from the initial site visit to the removal was very professional and we are delighted with the result. The team was respectful of our garden and they took great care to leave our garden very tidy.
