Our tree felling service is the perfect option if you have a tree that requires complete removal. Upon an initial site visit, we will discuss your requirements and assess the tree to ascertain the best action plan. Tree felling can be quite involved, but you can rest assured that The Tree Surgeon Harrogate has the skills and expertise required to get the job done efficiently and to the highest standard.

There are multiple reasons to remove a tree from its natural habitat, maybe:

  • The tree has become dangerous or is in poor condition.
  • It has become too large for its surroundings, and removal is the most sensible option.
  • A development project is being carried out, and the tree requires removal for site access.
  • Or any other reason.

Whatever the reason is, we can help. We can fell any tree, small or large, and we have all the necessary equipment and experience to ensure that it is removed quickly and efficiently.

Three main tree felling methods are used: direct cut, notch cut, and hinge cut.

  • The direct cut method is the most common and involves cutting the tree straight at a 45-degree angle.
  • The notch cut method involves making two cuts, a top-notch and a bottom cut. The top-notch is made first, followed by the bottom cut. This method is used when there is a danger of the tree falling on something, like a building.
  • The hinge cut method is used to control the direction the tree falls. A cut is made on the side of the tree where you want it to fall. This method is used when there are obstacles near the tree that you don’t want it to fall on.

We will assess the best option depending on the tree size and surroundings. Once the tree is removed, if required, we can then also remove the stump using our professional stump grinding equipment, leaving you with a blank canvas.

We always provide the best tree-felling services in Harrogate and the surrounding areas, so please feel free to contact us and discuss how we can assist you with your project.

If your tree looks like it has become ‘top heavy and is potentially carrying too much weight, tree crowning is a perfect solution. Before commencing any work, we will look at the tree’s overall structure, and how it is growing, then we’ll come up with the best method to thin and shape your tree as necessary. Doing this can prevent any issues from occurring in the future, such as the tree becoming damaged by adverse weather conditions, or branches snapping due to excess weight, etc. Tree crown reduction is a fantastic way to prevent future problems with your trees.

When deciding on the best way to crown a tree we will take into consideration the trees overall size, location, age, and purpose. As an example, a tree which is close to an over head power line will be crowned in a different manner from one with nothing surrounding it. Once we have work out what is the best method to ensure that the crowning work is completed most effectively, we will then commence work with a clear plan of action.

Crown reduction can be complex, but the team at The Tree Surgeon Harrogate has decades of experience ensuring that your tree is always taken care of most efficiently.

It was an absolute please to meet Tom, from The The Tree Surgeon Harrogate, and I knew as soon as he started work that he was the man for the job. He took care of a massive oak tree that I had been meaning to have removed for years, and the service I offered was second to none. Thanks so much for the professional service. A+++ from me!

Darren Sambers


I am a property developer, and finding reliable tradesmen is a big struggle at times. A recent house which I purchased had a garden that had not been attended to for years, and Tom took on the task of clearing all necessary trees and shrubs leaving it looking amazing. Big thanks to you Tom, and I’ll be in touch soon with the next project!!
