The tree removal process is a subject of incredible breadth. Beginning with the dismantle, a tree can be brought down with as little as a well executed notch and felling cut, or the dismantle may require a climber to ascend the tree and cut off pieces suitable for the landing zone below; but that is just the beginning.

Depending on items in the landing zone to be preserved, even including turf, the dismantle may require either a simple or complex rigging system to prevent the cut pieces of the tree crashing into the “targets” below. If a tree is so large, or so hazardous, or situated in a drop zone to small for efficient rigging, the use of a crane to assist the climber may even be prudent.

Once the tree is dismantled safely, the crew will begin processing the waste material in accordance with the prearranged wishes of the client. While most clients request that all waste be removed from the site, some elect to leave the debris on site as a cost saving measure or to make use of the waste in some way. At this point only a tree stump remains.
