Tree Felling Canterbury

Tree Removal Canterbury

Tree felling is the process of removing a tree from its environment, which may be due to safety concerns, land development or just because the tree is no longer healthy.

Tree felling can be dangerous and should only be attempted by trained professionals like ourselves who have the necessary equipment, skills, and expertise. With years of experience, we’re here to help you with every step of the process.

There are three main methods of tree felling: direct cut, notch cut, and hinge cut.

  • The direct cut method is the most common and involves cutting the tree straight through at a 45-degree angle.
  • The notch cut method involves making two cuts, a top-notch and a bottom cut. The top-notch is made first, followed by the bottom cut. This method is used when there is a danger of the tree falling on something, like a house.
  • The hinge cut method is used to control the direction the tree falls. A cut is made on the side of the tree where you want it to fall. This method is used when there are obstacles near the tree that you don’t want it to fall on.

After the tree has been cut, the stump needs to be removed. This can be done with a stump grinder and another service that Canterbury Tree Surgeons offers.

I’ve had issues with an oak tree for some time, and have had various tree surgeons assess it, but most were either unsure how to tackle its removal or their prices were exceptionally high. After speaking to Kanye, he promptly arranged a site visit, and worked out a plan of action on how to remove it. I would totally recommend him to anyone looking for a professional arborist.

Kanye has been attending to my hedges and tree felling needs for some time now.

He is reliable, trustworthy, and takes great pride in everything he does. His knowledge is also vast.

I can honestly say it is a pleasure to have him working for me. 10/10 from me!!
