Section Tree Felling
Section felling will be used in situations where there is a risk of damage occurring to any property or harm to the public. The work consists of the entire removal of the tree, in sections. If a delay between felling and stump removal is to occur, the stump will be left at a minimum height of 1.5 metres (to ensure it is not a trip hazard).
Section felled trees will be dismantled using the step cut, break off and controlled throw method with the use of lowering ropes.
Straight Tree Felling
The straight fell of trees is the removal of trees as a single unit. Straight felling will be limited to such situations that pose no risk of damage to any property or persons whatsoever.
Trees to be straight felled will be guided by the use of pulling ropes and felling wedges as necessary to ensure the correct direction of controlled fall.
