We have created this 'Tree removal techniques' series to show the different processes and method used for each tree we remove for its specific situation, and we also show and discuss the fundamental techniques used in almost all tree removals to make it an efficient process with the least amount of effort and issues that is possible for the job.
How we take down a tree #3 : The fundamentals
Dan and Ryan take on this simple Katsura tree removal. The tree is fairly close the the buildings on the south side, over the tope of gardens and fences. On the north side is a large open grassed area that is perfect for a drop zone. Dan talks through his plan and and his processes as he works through this removal using the basic fundamentals for removing a tree. Dan explains why in most cases the lower branches should be removed first and the arborist works up removing the canopy. He also explains how you can maximize efficiency when using your second tie in point by thinking ahead about how branches can be reached a specific 2nd tie in point. In this video you will see the good work positioning which prevent the climber from straining and using tools at full stretch, but instead the handsaw and chainsaw are used in a position of full control and strength.
How we take down a tree #2 : Simple Birch tree removal
Justin and Dan remove this Birch tree that is riddled with ‘Bronze Birch borer’. This is a very simple and straight forward tree removal job for two men. The guys do some simple light rigging of branches over the hedge to prevent damage and into neighbour’s garden. The client’s garden has soil around the base of the trunk and lawn for the majority of the front garden. Justin drops many branches into the clients front garden which are left in situ to absorb some of the impact from logs that will be dropped when blocking the trunk down in small sections.

How we remove a tree #1 : Tree removal using a basic speed line system
In this video we explain how we take down a Douglas Fir tree close to a house. We explain our thought process for using a very basic speed line setup, why we base anchor the speed line , and then explain why the branches are removed in a certain sequence to enable the speed line to work in the best way. Every single tree presents different problems, has different objects to avoid in its own unique landscape. There are many different ways to take down a tree, we always try to focus on efficiency, and we like to share our thought process with you.
