Cutting down trees or tree felling is a dangerous activity but unfortunately neccessary when trees die, get sick, or their growth starts to present a problem, such as encroachment on other peoples' property or other issues. Tom O'Rourke is one of the few tree surgeons with a 100% safety record through two decades, fully licensed and certified, and with the very latest modern machinery and technologies for safe, quick and complete tree felling.
Various kinds of tree felling need a license to be undertaken, such as those further than ten meters from a public road, outside of thirty meters from a building - not a wall or temporary structure - as long as it was built before the tree was planted. There are various other regulations for tree felling near hedgerows, trees with a preservation order on them, and by tree size, diameter, volume and purpose. Protected structures have yet more regulations governing tree felling near them, as do protected habitats and the surrounding environment.
So it's better by far, both for safety and so that the various laws aren't infringed, to get a professional and licensed tree surgeon and feller like Tom O' Rourke to take down your trees. This involves things like controlled felling direction, pre-pruning, choosing the right cutting approach, knowing whether or not a tree is dead or diseased before felling, and using the right tools for the job. This could mean different kinds of wedges, saws, heavy plant and binding to control the fall.
Tom is the man you can rely on to get your trees felled the right way, and to dispose of lumber, chips, and wooden debris in an ecologically sound manner afterwards, so give him a buzz today to see what he can do for you!
I saw some of Tom's work and then met the man himself. We had a chat before looking over what I needed to do and decide on a plan of action. Tom is a good listener and not afraid to add his own ideas. From choosing plants, trees, stone and cutting away some unsightly old trees he and his men were wonderful workers, also very neat and tidy. I can highly recommend O' Rourke Landscapes to anyone who needs garden work or tree felling done. The money a householder spends on getting Tom to do a job is an investment, not an expense. My wife and I are more than pleased with all the work Tom and his co carried out.
