Tree removal is necessary if your trees have become hazardous with overhanging branches, leaning onto properties & structure, they have become diseased, or you need to increase your landscape space for a project. If this is the case, then we have you covered. Our team has extensive experience in handling tree removals, even in narrow spaces and challenging locations.

As necessary as tree removal can be in some circumstances there are laws and regulations that still protect wildlife and trees, that’s why our team of experts will do the due diligence for you and also submit applications to the local planning authority for Tree Preservation Orders (TPO’s) within the Conservation Areas.

Types OF Tree Removal

  • Tree Felling which is the most common method of tree removal. This is done by cutting a notch at the bottom of the tree specific to the way you want the tree to fall. This method allows workers to be on the ground and can be done with a chainsaw or axe. Just like how you see it in movies.
  • Section Felling this is done by using rigging cables to climb the tree and cutting branches and trunk segments which are then lowered to the ground.
  • Bucket Removal is the use of a cherry picker that lifts workers so that they can cut clear away a tree by sections. This method is beneficial when the tree in question is rotting and can’t support climbers. Although this method needs planning and due diligence ahead of time. 
  • Crane Removal, this is by far the most technical one out of the 4 as using a crane requires a good amount of space for the set up of the crane and navigation of the large trees coming down. This method needs careful planning but gets the job done surgically.

As you can see cutting a tree isn’t as straight forward as you may think. Each tree has it’s own circumstances that need to be assessed for the best possible desired outcome in the safest manner. Our Expert tree surgeons use a developed comprehensive process to approach each project. This allows us to cater to your needs and present you with affordable tree removals whilst ensuring safety of lives and properties.

  • Crown Thinning is the selective removal of inner/smaller branches. This is to allow allows light and air to travel through the crown.
  • Crown Reduction is to reduce the height and spread of the crown (the foilage bearing portions) of a tree, usually cutting back the upper part of the tree canopy.  This method is used when a tree has outgrown its permitted space on the landscape.

Do you have stumps in your landscape or garden, that’s like a sore thumb sticking out. Well that tree stump is what’s leftover after a tree has been removed. Left-over stump can be more hazardous then you think with suckering and root rot happening down below, it can also spread disease and infection to other trees or plants nearby. There’s more reasons to remove a tree stump then to keep it.

Our Tree Removal Crew are fully trained and experienced and can tackle any stump the needs removing or grinding in Byker.

Common Misconceptions

Your first thought might be to remove the stumps yourself after emerging yourself with all the several methods mentioned online, so let us warn you before you taking on this tedious task that’s prone to so many risks. You may end up with a bigger job than what you initially started with. Stump removal requires experience with specialized machinery and expert knowledge. 

Stump Removal Or Stump Grinding ?

Stump Removal is the process of digging out the entire root system and cutting away the roots.

Stump Grinding is the process of grinding down the stump to “below grade” which means all visible parts of the stump and any roots that come above ground.

As you can see stump removal is the complete removal of the stump and roots whilst stump grinding just removes the stump and all surface level leftovers leaving behind roots. If you wish to build on where the tree stump was then we suggest removing the stump completely. Stump grinding is a more cost effective method but leaves behind the risk of insect infestation and the spread of decay around your garden as the roots are left.

We advise you use us here at Tree Surgeon Byker as we have expert knowledge and can provide you with expert removal and grinding of your stumps.

Do I need permission to cut down a tree in my garden?

For private properties or homeowners, you generally don’t need permission to cut down a tree in your garden. However, it’s important to be aware that the council may have authority over trees on private land, especially if they are subject to a Tree Preservation Order or located within a Conservation Area.

What is a Tree Preservation Order?

A Tree Preservation Order, legislated by the local planning authority (such as the Local Council) in England, safeguards specific trees, wildlife species, and woodlands. TPOs prevent these trees from being cut down, topped, lopped, uprooted, or deliberately destroyed without the Local Council’s permission.

When to call a Tree Surgeon?

Call a Tree Surgeon immediately in emergencies, like fallen or unstable trees that pose a danger to lives and structures, potentially causing burst pipes and downed telephone lines. Other reasons to contact a tree surgeon include overgrown trees, signs of disease, or when you need space for a new landscape design.

How Much Do Tree Surgeons charge per hour UK?

The average cost of a tree surgeon is £40 to £60 per hour. Tree surgery often requires a team of 2 or 3, depending on the job’s size. For a precise and affordable quote, request an on-site visual assessment rather than describing your needs over the phone. You can also read into our tree surgeon cost guide.

When is the best time to prune a tree?

Light trimming can occur year-round. However, for tasks like removing long, dead branches or significantly reducing a tree’s size, it’s best to wait for the tree’s dormant period, typically in late autumn or winter, to aid the tree’s healing process.
