How Do We Usually Fell A Tree In Rotherham?

We usually perform tree felling using one of two methods: Straight tree felling or sectional felling. Which method we choose will depend on what the situation requires. Let us explain both methods.

Straight Tree Felling In Rotherham

Straight tree felling is the most common way to fell a tree. It is done by cutting the tree at the base of the trunk, and then making it fall to the ground in a controlled manner.

What is the process?

In order to control how and when the tree falls to the ground, we need to create what’s called a hinge. 

First, we make what is called a face notch (also called a directional notch). We cut this notch in the direction we want the tree to fall. The face notch should have an angle of approximately 60-70 degrees, and it should be cut to about 25% of the trunk’s thickness.

Step 2 is to create what’s called the back cut. It is a horizontal cut from the opposite side of the trunk, almost up to the face notch we just made. It’s crucial that we don’t cut all the way to the face notch, but leave about 2-4 cm uncut. This uncut part is the hinge.

In other words, we will have now cut through the entire trunk, except for these 2 – 4 cm.

At this point, minimal effort is needed for the tree to fall because it rests on the hinge. We can now make it fall in the direction of the face notch in a controlled manner, using wedges, ropes, and slings.

Court Trefelling in Rotherham

The reason the tree won’t fall sideways or backward is the face notch. The face notch gives the tree only one option: To fall in the direction of the notch.

Although straight tree felling is the simplest and most common way to bring down trees, it is not always possible to fell large trees using this method in Rotherham. The reason is that there is often not enough free space for the tree to fall to the ground, without causing damage to buildings or surroundings.

When there is insufficient space for a straight tree felling, we perform a sectional felling.

Sectional Tree Felling In Rotherham

Sectional felling is a more complicated way to bring down a tree, and typically takes longer to complete.

How is sectional felling done?

We can perform sectional felling in two ways: Climb up the tree (using necessary safety equipment) and carry out the work from there, or do the work from a lift. The method we use will depend on the situation (tree size, surroundings, potential hazards, etc.).

We begin by cutting off all the branches. Once there are no branches left, the next step is to cut off the top section of the tree. This section will usually be between 1 and 2 metres in length.

We can either lower this section to the ground in a controlled and safe manner using ropes, or let it fall to the ground, depending on the situation.

Once this section is safely on the ground, we continue by cutting the next section. And then the next one. We continue like this until the entire tree lies on the ground in sections.

Section felling of trees in Rotherham

This way, the entire tree will be dismantled into smaller sections, one piece after another.

This felling method allows us to remove any tree, no matter how little space we have available.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree In Rotherham?

The cost of felling a tree in Rotherham will usually depend on these four main factors:

The size of the tree.

Whether we have free access to the tree with equipment (and lift).

Do we perform a straight tree felling or a sectional tree felling?

Whether we leave the tree, cut it into smaller pieces, or take it with us.

Depending on this, the cost of felling a tree in Rotherham will be:

Tree Size Price In £
Up to 5 metres 75 – 200
5 – 10 metres 100 – 300
10 – 15 metres 200 – 400
15 – 20 metres 300 – 600
20 – 25 metres 400 – 800
Over 25 metres 500 – 1,000

We Can Also Remove The Tree Stump

After the tree is cut down, the tree stump will remain.

Now the question is:

Do you want to keep the stump? Or would you like for it to be removed as well?

If you wish to remove the stump, we can also do this for you. 👍

To do this, we use a machine called a stump grinder. We can grind away any stump, regardless of size, tree type, and condition of the stump. With a stump grinder, we will turn the stump into small wood chips.

Fastest tree felling in Rotherham

We usually grind the stump to approximately 30cm below ground level. We then typically fill the hole after the tree stump with wood chips from the stump + a top layer of soil (or whatever the natural top layer is). This will create an even and natural finish.

For instance, if the tree stump were in a lawn, we would add a top layer of soil. In a few weeks, you would then have new grass where the stump once stood.

However, if you prefer a different filling material, just let us know, and we will do precisely as you wish.

Before we leave, we will clean up after ourselves and make it look neat.

Safety Is Our First Priority At All Times

Tree removal will often come with certain risks, which is why safety is our number one priority. Before we begin removing a tree, we assess the tree and its surroundings and look for potential hazards. Once all of this has been evaluated, we will choose what we believe to be a safe and secure approach.

We also employ what we consider to be safe working methods when felling a tree. To make the job as safe and efficient as possible, we usually have a plan to identify potential hazards during the assignment. Additionally, we use a safety job analysis to analyze potential risks and ensure safety on our jobs.

Safe tree felling in Rotherham

This approach allows us to carry out tree felling correctly and safely and minimize the risk as much as possible.

All of our workers have liability insurance and personal injury insurance, and we always use safety equipment when we are out on assignments.
