What do Tree Felling services include?

Tree felling services include all the activities needed to safely remove any dead, dying or diseased trees from a public or private space. Tree specialists can inspect the tree to determine its status, estimate the felling zone, cut the notch, make the felling cut and ensure the tree falls safely. After the tree is felled, tree specialists proceed to cut up the tree for use as firewood or other products that’ll make transport easier.


Tree inspection

Your hired tree felling specialists check the tree if it is either dying, dead or diseased. They check the tree against established standards and state regulations to ensure that felling the tree is the only option. They can inspect the roots to ascertain if the tree is in danger of, or is already showing signs of upheaval.


Dead or dying trees must be felled as they can easily be uprooted in strong winds; these are a potential safety risk and can cause severe injury or property damage when the next storm hits. Diseased trees, if incurable, must likewise be felled to avoid infecting other trees and causing the extinction of the species.


Tree felling preparation

Your hired tree specialists then prepare to cut down the tree. They decide on what spot on the trunk to cut the notch, make an estimate of where the tree will fall, and plan the escape routes. Tree specialists may clear designated escape routes of debris, brush or any other obstacles to make the escape route safe for them to take once the tree begins to fall. After all, these have been mapped out; they proceed with the tree-felling process.


Tree felling using wedges, chainsaw, or axes

For the tree felling, your hired tree specialists can use a chainsaw or axe to cut the notch. They can then use tree felling wedges if the trunk is large and thick enough. These wedges are inserted into a deep cut on the trunk, opposite the notch. With a sledgehammer or the blunt side of the axe head, the wedges are driven into the tree until the tree opens up and then falls.


Tree cutting

Once the tree has been felled, tree specialists can cut off the protruding branches, and cut up the trunk into smaller sections. You may use the cut-up tree for firewood, carvings or clean logs. Some tree specialists may offer to dispose of the felled tree for you, but this can cost extra.
