Our team always plans a safe course of action for removing your tree before the work begins. The tree removal method will vary depending on the time and space allotted for a particular job. Our methods are known as straight felling & section felling. Read on to learn about what both of them entail.
Timber. A term used commonly for a tree falling in a single smooth movement. Often, this is not usually possible especially in urban environments due to restrictions on space, risk of damaging property, and health and safety risk. We thus have had to adapt our removal techniques and we fell a tree in sections in such situations.
We dismantle the tree into multiple smaller but more manageable sections using lowering ropes. Step cut is used to create the sections, breaking off the branches then using a lowering method we refer to as controlled throw using the lowering ropes. Using the ropes we are sure that sections of the tree are always under our control throughout the process of removal.
Many stories abound of such methods causing unnecessary damage when removing bigger trees. Our team has never encountered such an incident and it is due to the high level of experience and competence as a result of many years in the industry.
Straight Tree Felling
Straight tree felling is probably most associated with tree surgery in its entirety. Trees removed using this approach are carefully cut at a calculated area at the tree’s base. The tree is then allowed to fall under gravity in a single smooth movement to ground level all this while using ropes for controlling the movement. Once the tree reaches ground level, our team is then able to dismantle it efficiently ready for removal from the premises.
Straight tree felling is mainly used in forestry as well as large open areas with no potential to damage property. Considering Folkestones architecture and the tight knit property development there, this is a felling method used far less than section felling.
Since we always love to work safely, we always make sure that we only fell trees using this method only in areas where risk of incidents and accident is non-existent. The technique can however be used to take down smaller, more manageable trees.
