Clear Felling

What is Clear Felling?

There are times that a tree needs to be removed whether this is because it presents a hazard to property or buildings, or if the tree has died or has health issues. When space permits the tree can be felled from ground level, this is called clear felling. Clear felling is only possible when there is no danger to surroundings or property from the tree as it is cut down. 


If the space around the tree to be felled is insufficient and could present a danger then the tree needs to be felled in sections. Your requirements and space will be assessed during our first visit where we will inform you if clear felling is possible.

Hunter Tree Clear Felling Services

We are experienced tree surgeons are fully qualified and insured to conduct tree felling works. We use the various specialist equipment and conform to the latest health and safety regulations to ensure that a tree is felled safely. As part of our process, we will conduct an initial visit to assess your situation, access arrangement and how the tree can be felled safely. 

When clear felling the tree, we will use a cutting technique which controls the direction in which the tree will fall. This method is complemented by a series of wedges and ropes to ensure staff, public and your property are unharmed. 

When the job is completed, any wood chippings or logs created by the removal of the tree, we will remove from your property and recycle in a responsible and environmentally-friendly way. 

If you are looking to remove a tree from your property, you will need to check if your tree is under a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) or you live in a conservation area. If so then your Local Authority may have specific guidelines regarding if work can be carried out. We would suggest that you consult your local council before undertaking the work.
