Large trees can weigh several hundred tons, and while the tree surgeon might fell such a tree if it is in the middle of a field, it is not possible to fell a large tree this way if it is in a residential setting. A large beech tree, for example, would pose a great danger when removing, as its branches can easily crack, making it a very unpredictable and very dangerous operation.
By contacting experienced tree surgeons in Bristol, removing the tree is quite straightforward, and the operation would involve using a crane to lower major boughs and branches as they are removed. This slow, but sure, method of tree removal starts at the top, by removing large branches one at a time, with the crane gently lowering each branch onto the ground, or the bed of a waiting truck.
Tree Removal Team
Removing a mature tree requires a team of experts, and the work would include:
- One tree surgeon who is up the tree, making cuts with a small chainsaw, after attaching them to a rope.
- Crane operator.
- People on the ground to ensure the area is free of people.
- A team to cut up and remove branches as they are removed.
Removing the Stump
Removing a stump with traditional methods is very labour intensive and time-consuming, yet today we have stump grinding machines that grind the roots into fine sawdust, allowing for the entire root system to be removed.
If you have a mature tree that needs attention, call your local tree surgeon who will pay you a visit and make you aware of your options.
