Felling is the complete removal of a tree down to ground level. This work involves the careful lowering of branches and timber so as not to cause any damage or destruction to surrounding plants and structures. The stump will be left as close to the ground as possible but will be above soil level.
What may look like a healthy tree on the outside could be rotten on the inside and potentially dangerous in its surroundings. Our trained specialists are available to inspect the trees on your property and, if seriously damaged or diseased, we can safely remove them for you.
Once a tree has been felled you may wish to remove the stump and root system entirely to prevent re-growth. This work is usually undertaken using specialist equipment such as a stump grinder or occasionally using hand tools, if appropriate. Stump grinding involves the removal of stump to a specified depth, generally between 150mm and 300mm. Upon completion, the remaining hole will be back-filled with soil to leave a level surface.
Stump removal or stump grinding ensures the stump and roots are taken well below ground level so as to enable easy replanting. The leveled area may also be covered in turf or built upon.
