How We Safely Remove Large Trees from Small Spaces

Removing large trees is no easy task and is something that should always be left up to a licensed professional. There are many safety risks involved and you run the risk of damaging any nearby buildings as well. Large tree removal in and of itself is difficult, but when the tree is in a small, tight space, it becomes an even more complicated process. Learn about how our licensed and trained tree surgeons will safely remove large trees from small spaces in Sydney.

When we are contracted to remove a large tree, our crews always take the utmost safety precautions to keep ourselves safe as well as our clients and their property. Working within the confines of a smaller space to remove a large tree can raise the stakes of safety risks even higher. Here are the steps we take to remove large trees:

  • We raise a crew member in a bucket truck and maneuver it to an area where they can reach the first part of the tree to be removed.
  • Once the bucket truck is situated, the tree surgeon will then slowly and methodically cut off small pieces, one at a time. Before they are removed, a rope will be tied around each section so that it can be lowered safely to the ground without hitting any buildings, people, or vehicles. We do this part over and over again until there are no more higher parts of the tree to be removed.
  • After we have removed the tree’s canopy and the higher branches, our crews will then move down the trunk of the tree, assessing the best ways to remove it as they go.
  • Once the tree has been fully removed and all parts of the tree have been safely loaded into our trailer, we will haul the tree off of your property.

Deciding when to remove a tree can be a cumbersome decision, which is why it’s always best to leave that decision to the professionals. If you start to notice any of the symptoms listed below, reach out to an arborist at Ultra Tree Services right away.

  • The lower trunk of the tree is cracked or broken. If you notice the main trunk of your tree is cracked, there’s a good chance your tree will need to be removed.
  • There are tree branches hanging over the roof of your home. A fallen tree branch can easily cause thousands of dollars worth of damage to your home.
  • A large stem has split from the tree. This can lead to massive decay and weakness in the tree’s structure, and an arborist may recommend tree removal.
  • The tree is leaning towards a target object. If you start to notice that a tree in your yard is leaning one way or another, this can lead to serious damages down the line for both people and structures. Don’t wait until it’s too late to call a tree removal expert.
  • The tree is clearly dead. Whether your tree has been dead for a few months or a few years, the longer a dead tree sits, the more dangerous it’s going to become to you and your home.
  • You notice hanging, dead branches on your tree. When these branches fall, it can cause costly repairs to your home, cars, and landscape.
  • There is heavy soil around the base of your tree trunk. This can be a sign that the tree is not deeply rooted enough into the ground, which means it won’t take much for your tree to topple over.
  • There is fungi growing at the base of your tree. If you start to notice signs of mushrooms or fungi, this may be a sign that your tree is infected with disease or is in decay.
  • Small twigs on your tree do not bloom. If you usually have beautiful blooms and buds on your trees, but they don’t seem to bloom anywhere, this may be a sign that your tree is dead or dying.

After the large tree has been removed, our crew can grind the stump down, too, if that is a service you have enlisted us for. It is generally recommended to remove the stump, as it can begin to rot and attract pests. If the stump is particularly close to a building, this can present undesirable outcomes such as termites invading the stump and then moving to your building’s structure. We will always make sure the stump is ground down to six inches below the soil.
