Is Tree Felling Necessary in Barnet?
There may be occasions when a tree in Barnet needs to be removed (felled) for safety reasons or to help reduce overcrowding in wooded areas. Safety reasons may include removal needed due to infection, rot, or if the tree is leaning dangerously near to cables, highways or rail tracks.
Barnet tree felling is a broad area of work that includes many of the more specific tree maintenance services that we provide. Tree felling is a specialised service and can be a safety concern if performed incorrectly. It’s something that should always be carried out by certified professionals (like us!).
Barnet Tree Felling Management
There are many factors that affect tree felling in Barnet. One of the main aspects is whether there are major obstacles in the area (overhead lines, roads, buildings) and if the area is accessible to the Barnet public. Our tree felling management takes into consideration the plants and animals that live in the locality of the tree(s) to be felled, to ensure as least disruption as possible.
Tree felling performed in Barnet by Majestic Tree Services ensures that our professional staff members will be able to protect the surrounding trees. If the tree were to fall in an unplanned direction it could cause damage to other trees, as well as your Barnet home or surrounding structures.
We will visit your Barnet property to evaluate the area and trees that need felling, to ensure a safe and efficient tree removal process. Our professional tree surgeons will then arrange a convenient time to come and remove your unwanted tree. The tree will be felled either from the base or by sectioning it, dependant on the size and area of your Barnet garden.
Types of Barnet Tree Felling
DIRECTIONAL TREE FELLING
With or without the additional use of a pulling rope or winches, the tree is felled to the ground in one piece. Using a few directional cuts into the base of the tree, notches are used in order to control the direction of the felling.
SECTION TREE FELLING
Common for jobs where the tree is directly above Barnet houses, conservatories or sheds. Our skilled team members will climb the tree and cut it down in sections.

Barnet Tree Surgery & Maintenance Services:
This is the removal of the tree to ground level. It can either be carried out from the ground if space permits or by means of dismantling the tree into smaller pieces by rope and harness. Some operations require specialist equipment for lowering sections to the ground by means of rigging equipment.
Crown reduction pruning is most often used when a tree has grown too large for its permitted space. This method, sometimes called drop crotch pruning, is preferred to topping because it results in a more natural appearance, and increases the time before pruning is needed again and minimizes stress to the tree.
Our Barnet tree surgeons are fully qualified in all aspects of tree surgery. We can complete the removal of trees without damage to the surrounding areas and are fully equipped to tackle the felling of trees that may be situated in awkward locations.
Stump grinding removes the base of the tree and some of its roots after it has been felled. There are many benefits for removing a stump, and we are able to carry out this task with our own specialist portable equipment, which allows us access to the smallest of spaces and can remove stumps of any size.
Properly pruned trees will remain healthier and live longer than neglected trees. The Pruning of trees is the most important tree maintenance practice you can do to help your tree remain healthy and strong. Pruning is important in order to maintain tree health. The older the tree the more difficult and expensive this work is.
Routine inspections should be carried out frequently enough to detect any hazards that may have recently developed. Hazards from large old trees sometimes develop quite rapidly, for which reason an inspection frequency of once a year or more is advisable.
This is a method of treating a tree so that the overall shape is a large trunk and very small branches. The trees need to be maintained every year by a qualified Barnet tree surgeon.
If a tree is not looked after, then this process can prematurely kill the tree.

Sectional dismantling – Where space is restricted, the tree is carefully dismantled and brought down piece by piece
