Tree Felling Exeter
We were asked to complete a tree felling Exeter, a pencil cypress in Exeter which was heading for the skies and had overgrown its situation. It was surrounded by garages, sheds, fences and patio paving around the base. This required the tree to be climbed and dismantled in small sections as the drop zone was tight to say the least. Located in a back garden in Exeter where the only access was through the garage, this meant the whole tree had to be extracted through a narrow door and carried through the garage with care. As the job was scheduled to take place in nesting season, we climbed the tree a few days before to check for nesting birds. Safe to say the job went to plan. Everyone involved in the felling of trees, the owner, agent, timber merchant or contractor must ensure that a licence has been issued before any felling is carried out.
What Tree Felling involves:
Preparations for Tree Felling
Tree felling Exeter will make sure all obstacles are out of the way so nothing gets damaged which then creates a safe place for the tree to fall. We then remove all lower branches of the tree and remove the buttresses to give an exact diameter making sure it gets removed just about ground level. We do use the buttress sometimes to allow us extra leverage when using a felling lever. Our professional tree felling team will plan escape routes to the right or left of the back of the tree.
What happens after the preparations are complete?
Firstly, we make a sink cut which controls the direction that the tree will fall, it is completed in 2 segments and this is where we use a guide bar to get exact measurements. The second segment has to be measured correctly and this is
what our professional tree felling team are trained to do. Tree Felling Exeter’s team will then cut the felling cut by aligning the guide bar at the exact measurement ensuring that everybody is out of the
way when making the cut. After this is completed we then make sure check everyone is out of the way due to this being when the tree starts to fall. Shortly after succeeding with the cutting of the tree, it is the final steps left to do which involves the removal of the tree and cleaning up ensuring everything is back to the way it was, without the tree.
