What is Tree Felling?

Tree felling is the action of cutting down a tree, typically in the interest of conservation. If a tree is diseased, it is important to remove it completely to prevent the disease from spreading to surrounding trees.

Additionally, you may need a tree removed if you have one that is unsafe due to its fragile state and therefore is at risk of falling and causing damage. Tree felling can be a dangerous procedure, and should only be undertaken by those with experience.

If you are planning on doing it yourself, you need to ensure that you have the proper safety equipment and know how to use it. The same applies if you are hiring someone else to do it for you. Dorset Arborists is here to help you make the right decision when it comes to removing trees. We’re experienced arborists who know how to identify dangerous trees before they pose harm.

We’ll assess the health of your trees, let you know which ones need attention, and then remove them safely so you don’t have any worries about damage from falling limbs or branches.

Our Tree Removal Process

It’s time for your tree to come down. Whether it’s an old, dead tree or an eyesore that needs to be removed, we’re here to help. It’s not just about cutting down the tree, either. The tree needs to be cut down in a way that doesn’t damage your property or the surrounding area. If you’re looking for a tree-felling company in Dorset, we can help.

Our team of experts will ensure that your trees are removed safely and efficiently, so you don’t have to worry about them falling on anything they shouldn’t or causing damage to other aspects of your property.

We’ll take care of all the details so that you don’t have to worry about it—and we can even give you tips on how to ensure that your trees don’t end up causing problems again!

We know that when it comes to tree removal, you need someone who is going to do the job right without causing any damage or hassle. That’s why we go above and beyond in order to make sure any trees are removed safely, efficiently, and with minimal disruption for our customers.

The first step in our tree removal process is to meet with you and assess the job at hand. We’ll talk about what needs doing and how best to do it.

Once we’ve agreed on a plan of action, we’ll get started on the job as soon as possible. If there are any issues with weather or scheduling that might delay things longer than expected, we’ll let you know well ahead of time so that you have plenty of time to plan out your schedule accordingly.

Next comes cutting down the tree!

Our team uses heavy machinery—such as excavators or chain saws—to fell trees very quickly, but if you have any questions about this process or want more information about our other services (such as stump grinding), give us a call today!

Tree Felling FAQ’s

You may need permission from your local council to cut down a tree on your property, particularly if it is protected by a TPO. 

If you’re unsure whether you need permission, it’s worth reading through the following criteria: 

  • Is the tree protected under a TPO (Tree Preservation Order)?
  • Do you live within a designated conversation area?
  • Do you own the property? If not, you will need permission from the landlord. 
  • The tree is protected by a legal covenant?
  • Is the property a new build?

After cutting down a tree, there are many things you can do with the remains, whether you want to repurpose or recycle them. It’s important to mention though that not all trees can be repurposed as some may be infected or infested with pests and disease.

For example:

  • Firewood
  • Recycle as furniture
  • Recycle other household items such as coasters or chopping boards
  • Create habitat for wildlife
  • Turn it into mulch

Depending on the size of the tree, you may be able to cut it down yourself. However, we usually do not recommend this as it’s actually a more complicated process than you think. 

Not to mention tree removal is also dangerous and you’ll want to make sure that you cut the tree in the right way to ensure all the tree’s roots do not grow back. So it’s always best to hire a professional tree surgeon to do this.

The best time of year to remove trees is usually between late winter and early spring. This is due to the trees being dormant, which means the leaves will have fallen and they will be lighter. This provides more room and more access for the tree surgeon to work.
