  • Section Felling: This is done by utilizing rigging cables to climb the tree and cutting branches & trunk segments which are then lowered to the ground.
  • Bucket Removal: This is method is used when the tree in question has structural damage or rotting meaning it can’t support climbers. Tree surgeons are lifted in a cherry picker, allowing them to cut the tree in sections. This technique requires planning & preparation.
  • Crane Removal: The tree will be cut piece by piece and then lifted out of the area vertically which is then placed in a drop zone or safe location. Due to the space required for the set up and navigation of the tree, care planning is required. This method is used when a tree is to tall to perform felling or a tree is near electrical cables and other structural properties that might be at risk.
