Tree Felling, Sectional Dismantling
Dismantling trees in restricted areas with ropes and rigging.
Precision and safe felling of trees takes great care and expertise by qualified tree surgeons and arborists.
The Directional Notch
This notch is made in the tree depending on a couple of prior factors, the actual condition of the tree and the terrain. The directional cut should be around 15% to 20% of the trunk, avoid cutting too deep. This cut should also be made as close to the ground a safely as possible, this will allow for superior control and give stability when the tree does eventually fall.
The Felling Cut
After our directional notch has been completed, it's now time to cut the felling towards our directional notch. Using our tree felling wedge or felling bar to assure our safe felling and to stop the tree from back leaning in the other direction.
The hinge is the most important part of the tree felling operation. It makes for a clean and safe tree fell. This uncut part between our directional notch and the felling cut like any other hinge by directing the tree to its final destination on the ground. It is important that the hinge has a uniform thickness, and the hinges length be a minimum of 80% of the trees diameter, around breast height and width of the hinge will be at 10% of our chosen trees diameter, again at breast height. This will change depending on the diameter of the tree to be felled.
