If you have unwanted, damaged or diseased trees on your property, tree felling is the solution you’ve been looking for. Simply put, tree felling is the process of cutting down and removing trees. As a leading tree surgeon in Mitcham, we have felled hundreds of trees for a range of reasons. However, the main reasons for tree felling can fit into three categories: safety, disease and aesthetics.
Tree felling for safety…
Tree felling for safety is the number one reason why trees are cut down. Safety concerns include:
If nearby structures are impacted by a tree or trees.
If tree roots are causing subsidence.
If trees are unstable.
If overhead cables are impacted by a tree or trees.
Tree felling for disease…
Unfortunately, diseased trees can cause harm to the environment. In this instance, professional tree surgeons must be contacted to assess the tree and identify any disease present. In the event of a diseased tree, tree felling can often be the only safe and appropriate resolution.
Tree felling for aesthetics…
Tree felling to improve the appearance of a landscape or garden is becoming more common across the UK. In this instance, tree felling can be used to prepare for structures to be built, to reduce shade and to provide a more landscaped green space.
