FELLING OR DISMANTLE
The complete removal of a tree is sometimes necessary due to poor health, outgrown its position or damaging property. Every tree varies in size and location, so you need highly skilled, qualified staff to carry out the work. Our staff will deal with trees of any size and in any location.
Usually trees must be section felled, rigged down using ropes to prevent damage to your property or gardens. Sometimes when the tree is too dangerous or dead we have to use power platforms to ensure the operation is safe.
Less common is to be able to fell a tree from the ground.
The word pruning covers a number of different tree pruning operations. From crown reducing to making a tree smaller in size, to crown thinning which is selectively removing limbs from within the crown to allow air and light to penetrate the tree, to crown lifting which is removing low limbs to clear people’s heads or over highways to clear the largest lorries or buses. Trees will also need to have dead branches removed as part of a crown clean operation.
When a tree has been cut down to ground level leaving a stump we at OTS can remove the stump with a stump grinding machine. With a stump removed you will have options in landscaping that part of your garden.
Our specailist machine with qualified staff will get through the side gate to gain access to every part of the garden. We are able to deal with the smallest stump up to very largest problematic stumps’, the stump bowl will be removed by turning the woody material into chips in the ground.
SITE CLEARANCE & REMOVAL
We can undertake any size project to clear a site in preparation for further building development. Rootwork and stump removal ready for foundation laying or drainage works. All tree materials are removed from site and recycled accordingly.
Here at OTS we prune the whole range of hedges, from the smaller garden variety up to very large hedges which will need a power platform to reach. No pruning job is too small, too large, too short or too long. Timing is very important, to avoid the bird nesting season as they are protected under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981. Whether you need a one off prune or require a regular or annual service, we can provide you with a first class finish regardless of species.
