Tree Dismantling

In cases where felling a tree isn't an option due to limited space, especially in urban areas with garages, fences, or cars nearby, we resort to tree dismantling. Our NPTC-certified Tree Surgeons will ascend your tree with ropes and harnesses, or when required, utilize mobile elevated work platforms. The tree is then systematically taken apart into small, manageable pieces and safely lowered down to minimize any damage to surrounding structures or your garden.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I Need Permission to Cut Down My Tree?

The answer varies. If your tree is protected by a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) or is situated in a conservation area, you'll need to get approval from your local Council. To find out if your tree has a TPO, you can consult your Council's website or call your local tree officer.

Should I Attempt to Remove My Own Tree?

Although tree felling may appear straightforward—just make a V-notch at the base of the tree, a back cut, and let gravity do the rest—it's far from simple. Several considerations make this a job best left to professionals.

Tree felling is a hazardous operation best entrusted to qualified Tree Surgeons. Even those with new qualifications are never left to handle complex tree-felling projects alone. Multiple factors that might not be obvious to an untrained individual can introduce risks. These can range from unexpected wind gusts to internal decay and the tree's natural lean, all of which affect the type of cut to be used. If terms like "dog tooth cut" or "split level cut" are unfamiliar to you, it’s advisable to let professionals handle your tree removal needs.

Can I Cut My Neighbours Tree In My Garden?

So long as the tree is not protected, you can cut your Neighbours tree back to your boundary only. You must also offer the arising back to your Neigbhour as legally they own them.
