Dismantling & removing trees

Dismantling involves the gradual removal of a tree bit by bit where it is impractical to fell the whole tree at once. The tree is slowly dismantled under control and limbs lowered using specialist rigging equipment and techniques where necessary. These can be costly operations due to the time and equipment involved. This often requires the use of cranes or access platforms.

Here is an example of a recent dismantling operation carried out on a large dead horse chestnut tree in Sainsburys carpark Braintree. The tree had died due to infection by horse chestnut bleeding canker. It had a trunk diameter of 1.2metres and weighed an estimated 7 tonnes. The task took two days to complete. We recovered 18 builders bags of sawdust.
