Tree Felling Falkirk

Tree Removal Falkirk

Tree felling is the complete removal of a tree from its natural habitat. There can be many reasons for needing a tree removed, including:

  • Access requirements for a development
  • The tree is in poor condition and dangerous
  • The surroundings mean it has become too large and tangled with other trees.

Whatever the reason, we can help. We can fell any tree, small or large, and we have all the necessary equipment and experience to ensure that it is removed quickly and efficiently.

Three main tree felling methods are used: direct cut, notch cut, and hinge cut.

  • The direct cut method is the most common and involves cutting the tree straight at a 45-degree angle.
  • The notch cut method involves making two cuts, a top-notch and a bottom cut. The top-notch is made first, followed by the bottom cut. This method is used when there is a danger of the tree falling on something, like a building.
  • The hinge cut method is used to control the direction the tree falls. A cut is made on the side of the tree where you want it to fall. This method is used when there are obstacles near the tree that you don’t want it to fall on.

We will assess the best option depending on the tree size and surroundings. Once the tree is removed, if required, we can then also remove the stump using our professional stump grinding equipment, leaving you with a blank canvas.

We always provide the best tree-felling services in Falkirk and the surrounding areas, so please feel free to contact us and discuss how we can assist you with your project.

I don’t leave reviews very often, but I felt the works that Sid carried out on my garden went above and beyond what was required. From inital contact to job completion he offered such a professional service, and ensured my tree felling requirements where completed to the highest standard possible. Big thanks Sid, A+++

A tree had fallen down and was obstructing our driveway, and needed urgent attention as we could not get out in the car. I called Sid and he managed to get to us the same day, and although he had another job booked he made a make shift pathway so we could exit, and then came back the following day and completed the work. Amazing service, real caring guy. Big thank you from us!
