Tree Surgeons Providing Tree Work in Orpington | Tree Removal: Felling and Stump Grinding Operations

Booking in for a tree removal with Marchant Tree Care isn’t just about felling, although it does have an obvious role to play. This type of tree work, should you require it, will also include removal of the remnants using specialist stump grinding machinery. Our tree surgeons have experience in both, and they carry the appropriate accreditations and licenses to prove it. We cover all aspects of tree surgery, tree pruning and hedge cutting. Our Sevenoaks-based team provides services in Orpington and the surrounding areas we cover.

Tree Services

There are two tree surgery practices associated with tree removal: directional felling and sectional dismantling. With a directional fell, our specialists make cuts into the trunk to create a hinge. This guides the tree towards a clear area of land in a safe manner. Sectional dismantling is a form of tree work where we cut and remove limbs from the top downwards, lowering them to the ground with a rope and pulley system.

In effect, we dismantle trees on your Orpington property piece by piece.

Our hedge cutting services include hedge removals. Naturally, this type of work is very different to the removal of a tree, but it still requires specialist tools and equipment. The tree surgeons at our company have experience in removing all native hedges, and in cutting and trimming them. Should you need to plant or replant hedges, or require tree pruning, we can help with that too.

Hedge cutting and removals are both a big part of our business and two key services which run side-by-side with more traditional types of tree work.

Stump Grinding | After a Tree Removal

All forms of tree surgery that focus on removals leave a stump. These remnants can block the way to further land development at your Orpington site. Stumps also present a tripping hazard, especially to children. They also harbour pests and bacteria that can have a negative impact on other nearby tree and plant species. Stump grinding takes tree remnants down to sub-floor level.

Our tree surgeons use chainsaws, stump grinding and hedge cutting machinery run on biodegradable oils to protect the environment for future generations.

  1. Before deciding on the correct tree removal process, Marchant Tree Care inspects the land around your Orpington property, estimates the fall range and makes provisions for safe felling or dismantling.

  2. When using directional felling as a form of tree surgery, we take the natural lean of the tree into account and determine where it will fall. Our tree surgeons look for signs of decay that could affect this fall.

  3. Safe tree work is our key strength so, when we decide upon a directional fell, we always plan an escape route for our personnel. We also take nearby buildings and landscaping themes into account to minimise damage.

  4. Our tree surgeons fell or dismantle specimens to complete the tree removal phase of the project. Marchant Tree Care chips felled trees and hedge cutting waste, which makes them easier to remove from site.

  5. Stump grinding begins on land in Orpington once we have a clear working area for our machinery. This is a mechanical process that minimises land impact, and one that is faster than digging out the roots.

At Marchant Tree Care, our experts combine tree removal and stump grinding practices to pave the way for building, development and landscaping projects. All tree work, tree pruning and hedge trimming undertaken by our company meets current LANTRA and NPTC guidelines. When you use us to fulfil your tree surgery requirements, you do so in the knowledge that we have an impeccable safety record and an ethical approach that’s built around environmental sustainability.
