Treehogs works in partnership with a local contractor to carry out machine assisted fells when necessary.
Machine-Assisted Tree Falling
Whereever possible a machine should be used to eliminate tree felling hazards as it greatly reduces the risk to manual tree fallers.
Machine assistance is best used when felling:
- trees against their natural lean or crown weight
- hung-up trees
- around waterways, roads, archaeological or sensitive sites, boundaries
- very large, heavy leaning or malformed trees
- spars or rotten trees
