Tree felling is the forestry term for cutting down a tree. It is a lot harder than you’d expect. It involves planning how the tree will fall, consideration of other trees and anything else than could be harmed, the lean and height of the tree and the slope of the ground.
After trees are felled, you’re left with an unsightly stump in the ground. So how is this removed? Stump grinding is the most common way of stump removal. It involves chipping away at the wood with a rotating disk that grinds it up into small chips. It is then covered with soil/fertiliser and your problem is solved.
Tree crown reduction is the process of removing branch tips. This involves pruning them back to a growth point further down the branch. This will reduce the overall size of the tree. The main reason for crown reduction is for removal of dead, damaged and diseased branches.
Crown thinning is the removal of live branches to reduce the density of the crown. Thinning is one of the most common types of tree surgery. By doing this, wind can pass through more easily which will increase storm durability. This will also allow more light to pass through the trees to make them more aesthetically appealing.
