Felling a tree is a delicate operation that requires specific skills and techniques if it is to be carried out safely. Falling trees can be very dangerous, especially if they are near buildings, high-voltage lines or traffic routes.
That's why it's important to call in a company that specialises in tree felling. Experienced lumberjacks and tree-climbers have the personal protective equipment they need to work safely at heights of several metres.
Before felling a tree, it is important to carry out an accurate assessment of the tree's height, circumference, the presence of any pests or diseases, and its direction of fall. Tree felling techniques vary depending on the type of tree, whether it's a coniferous, deciduous, fruit tree or shrub.
Once the tree has been felled, the cutting and bucking work can begin. The cuts must be made carefully to avoid leaving wounds on the trunk or branches of the felled tree. Branches must be cut cleanly, without damaging the bark, to facilitate healing.
Finally, green waste must be disposed of in an environmentally-friendly way. Wood chips can be used as mulch or for heating, and stumps can be trimmed to make it easier to redevelop the green space.
If you want to cut down one or more trees in your garden, it's important to comply with current safety standards and apply for the necessary authorisation. A prior declaration or certificate of authorisation may be required, especially if the tree is located in a protected area or near high-voltage power lines.
In short, tree felling is a complex operation that should be entrusted to qualified professionals to avoid any danger to you and your neighbours. Call on an experienced tree felling company for felling and dismantling work that is carried out according to the rules of the trade and respects the environment.
