While the bulk of what we do is about planting and preserving trees, there are many situations in which tree felling is necessary. For example, if a tree is diseased and structurally unsound, posing a danger to all passers-by and nearby properties. Our team provides two forms of tree felling to clients in and around the Camberley, Farnham, Guildford and Woking areas – sectional dismantlement and directional felling. Below, we’ve explained each method and why it’s used.
If you’re more interested in discussing your situation with our tree surgeons directly, call the Total Tree Care Services office on 07821 966 404. We’ll be able to help ascertain if tree felling is necessary (if you’re unsure), as well as whether there is a reason why you can’t have the specimen in question taken down, like the presence of a Tree Preservation Order put in place by the Camberley, Farnham, Guildford or Woking local authority.
Sectional Dismantlement – This involves our team carrying out a tree felling section by section, climbing the tree and cutting down key branches and boughs, rather than making one cut through the main trunk. It involves the uses of harnesses and safety equipment that guarantees the safety of our tree surgeons, as well as cordons that prevent passers-by from walking under or close by the tree. Sectional tree felling is ideal for busy parts of Camberley, Farnham, Guildford and Woking, and for dealing with problem species by a property or public footpaths.
Directional Felling – In countless movies and television shows there are examples of lumberjacks taking an axe to a carefully chosen section of a tree, yelling “timber!” and letting gravity take care of the rest. This is a form of directional felling, however we take an approach that requires a little more finesse, and guide a tree down with pinpoint accuracy. This is a very quick type of tree felling, but only suitable for more rural areas in Camberley, Farnham, Guildford and Woking where there’s lots of space and no nearby properties or public footpaths.
