Why Remove A Tree?

There are many reasons why removing a tree is necessary or appropriate. Here are some of the most common ones:

The tree may have outgrown the space that it was planted in.

It may be encroaching on infrastructure like roads, powerlines, or buildings.

It may be obstructing the view from a balcony or patio.

It could be in the way of a new hedge or shrub.

The tree might be blocking the construction of a new building, a swimming pool, or a different use of the area.

It may be preventing the growth of surrounding plants or hedges.

The tree could be in poor health, posing a risk to buildings, infrastructure, people, and pets.

The tree could be infected by parasites, fungi, or insects.

It could have been damaged by strong winds or other natural elements.

How Do We Usually Fell Trees In Wigan?

We usually fell trees using either straight felling or sectional felling. The method used will depend on your situation. Here is a short explanation of both methods.

Straight Tree Felling In Wigan

Straight tree felling is the most common way to fell a tree. We do it by cutting the tree at the base of the trunk, and then allowing it to fall to the ground in a controlled manner.

In order to control how, where and when the tree falls to the ground, we need to create something called a hinge. 

In order to do that, we first make what is called a face notch (otherwise known as a directional notch). This notch is cut in the direction we want the tree to fall. The face notch should have an angle of around 60-70 degrees, and it should be cut into approximately 25% of the trunk’s width.

Next, we create what’s known as the back cut. It is a horizontal cut from the opposite side of the trunk, continuing almost up to the face notch. It’s important that we don’t cut all the way to the face notch, but instead leave about 2-4 cm uncut. This uncut part is the hinge.

Minimal effort is now needed for the tree to fall because it rests on the hinge. We can then make it fall in the desired direction using wedges, ropes, and slings.

The key to preventing the tree from falling sideways or backwards lies in the face notch. This notch limits the tree’s options, ‘forcing’ it to fall only in the direction of the notch.

While straight tree felling is a straightforward and widely used method, it may not always be feasible to fell large trees this way in Wigan. Limited space often hinders the use of this method, as there might not be enough clearance for the tree to fall safely to the ground without risking damage to nearby infrastructure.

If space is restricted, then we will apply the sectional felling method.

Sectional Felling

Sectional felling is a more intricate way to fell a tree, and it typically takes longer to complete.

How is sectional felling done?

We can perform sectional felling in two ways: Climb up the tree (using safety equipment) and carry out the work from there, or do the work from a lift. The method we use will depend on the size of the tree, surrounding infrastructure, and potential hazards.

We start by cutting off the tree’s branches. Once there are no branches left, the next step is to cut off the top section of the tree. This section will usually be 1-2 metres long.

We can either lower this section to the ground in a controlled manner using ropes, or simply let it fall to the ground, depending on the circumstances.

Once this section is safely on the ground, we continue cutting, one section at a time. We do this until the entire tree is in sections on the ground.

This way, the entire tree will be cut into smaller sections, one piece at a time.

This felling method allows us to remove any tree, regardless of the available space.

How Much Does Tree Removal Cost In Wigan?

These are the four main factors that influence the cost of tree felling:

The size of the tree.

Whether we have free access to the tree with crew and equipment.

Whether we perform straight or sectional felling.

Whether we remove the tree entirely, cut it into small pieces, or simply leave it.

Depending on these factors, the cost of felling a tree in Wigan will be:

Tree Size
Price (£)
Up to 5 metres 75 – 200
5 – 10 metres 100 – 300
10 – 15 metres 200 – 400
15 – 20 metres 300 – 600
20 – 25 metres 400 – 800
Over 25 metres 500 – 1,000

We Also Do Stump Removal

Once the tree is felled, the tree stump remains.

Now, it’s up to you:

Would you prefer to keep the stump? Or would you like it removed?

If you want the stump removed, we can also help you with this. 👍

To remove a tree stump, we normally utilize a specialized machine called a stump grinder. Our stump grinder can handle any stump, regardless of the size or type of tree. This grinder will turn your stump into wood chips in no time.

Rimeligst Trefelling i Oslo

We typically grind the stump to around 30cm below ground level. We then fill the resulting hole with wood chips from the stump, topped with a layer of soil (or the natural top layer), creating a natural and flat finish.

For example, if the tree stump is in the middle of a lawn, we would add a top layer of soil, allowing new grass to flourish within just a few weeks.

If you would like a different filling material, just let us know.

Before we finish our work, we ensure a thorough cleanup, leaving the area tidy and well-maintained.

Safety Is Our Top Priority

Ensuring safety is our top priority during tree removal, especially because of the inherent risks involved. Before starting the removal process, a thorough assessment of the tree and its surroundings is conducted in order to identify potential hazards. Based on this, we carefully choose an approach that we believe is the safest one.

When felling the tree, we adhere to what we deem to be safe working methods. To enhance safety and efficiency, we develop a comprehensive plan that identifies and mitigates potential hazards throughout the assignment. In addition to this, we employ a safety analysis to assess risks, reinforcing safety measures throughout our operations.
