About Tree Felling in London

In urban spaces, such as London, it is usually necessary to dismantle trees in order to remove them. In order to dismantle a tree, professional London tree surgeons use ropes and lowering devices to manage and control each piece of the tree to make use of the available space. This special form of tree cutting is called sectional felling, and is a key step in effective local tree removal.

Tree felling legals; let's talk TPOs...

Prior to undertaking any work our tree surgery team will ascertain if a Tree Preservation Order (TPO) is in place or if the tree is in a Conservation Area. If either is the case, we will obtain the necessary permits from the local council’s Tree Officer and/or Planning Department before beginning work.

The restrictions of a conservation area do not apply if the tree is dead, dying or dangerous. Evidence will need to collected prior to any work and it is advisable to notify the council and supply evidence to ensure that there are no repercussions for either party, as it can be difficult to prove the condition of the tree after the work has been completed.
