tree removal 

Tree felling is the complete removal of the tree, to leave a stump just above ground level in height

(see stump grinding/eco-plugs if complete removal is required).

Where space allows, the tree is felled in a single section using various techniques to control the direction of the fall. This is a procedure rarely carried out in residential properties due to lack of space. ­­­­Where space is limited, the tree will be taken down piece by piece.

We can safely dismantle any tree to ground level and we have considerable experience in working on difficult and restricted sites


Occasionally there is no option other than to remove potentially dangerous trees. Decay, Fungal Infection, Bacterial Infection and simply being planted in the wrong location are common reasons for removal. When the tree is in close proximity to buildings, or potentially hazardous, it is necessary climb the tree and lower it in small pieces using rigging equipment to control the decent of the waste material. 

Patriarch Tree Services have qualified Climbers who are experienced in the discipline of working at height with rope and harness. 

Controlled felling?

Occasionally there is no option other than to remove trees upon safety criteria. If this is the case, often there is insufficient space to straight fell trees. However, when possible it is a far quicker method of removal than climbing and dismantling the tree in pieces. 


Logs and Woodchip produced in the removal of trees are always recycled, and we would always encourage the replanting of replacement trees.
