An introduction to felling

Felling is the removal of dangerous or unwanted trees. It is usually the wrong tree in the wrong place, so careful consideration should always be given on selection of species and positioning when planting a tree.

Straight fells
Usually carried out in woodlands or open grounds. The timber can be used to make furniture or for construction if there is access for the necessary machinery.

Section fells
Taking the tree down bit by bit, using specialist lowering equipment and techniques to allow the safe removal of any tree in any situation (eg. large decaying tree leaning over a house).

MEWPs
Mobile elevated work platforms make the job safer and easier where many service wires are contained within the tree's crown, or or the MEWP may be used to take a dead tree down in sections. Again access is required for this specialist machinery.

Cranes
If the access is good and the tree is large enough, the use of a crane means the job can be carried out more efficiently and large sections of wood can be utilised for timber.
