Tree Removal Manchester – Things to watch out for 

Signs you might need tree removal in Manchester 
There are several signs that a tree should be felled, which may indicate that the tree is unhealthy, unstable, or poses a safety risk. Here are some common signs to look out for: 
Dead branches 
If a tree has dead branches or leaves that do not regrow in the spring, it may be an indication of poor health or disease. 
If a tree is leaning significantly, it may indicate that the roots are damaged, or the trunk is weakened, which could cause the tree to fall. 
Cracks or splits 
Cracks or splits in the trunk of a tree could be a sign of internal decay or damage and could cause the tree to fall. 
Fungus or mushrooms 
The presence of fungus or mushrooms on the trunk or around a tree's base may indicate decay or disease. 
Cankers are areas of dead bark on the trunk of a tree and may indicate that the tree is diseased or infected. 
Hollow trunk 
A tree with a hollow trunk may be unstable and at risk of falling, especially in high winds or storms. 
Pest infestation 
An infestation of pests, such as borers or termites, could weaken the tree's structure and cause it to become unstable. 
If you notice any of these signs or are concerned about the health or safety of a tree, it's important to have a professional arborist inspect the tree and determine whether it should be felled. 
What tree removal techniques do I use? 
As a North West tree surgeon providing tree removal in Manchester, I use different techniques to remove trees depending on the tree's size, shape, and location. The most common approach is directional felling, which involves cutting a notch into the tree trunk on the side of the tree where you want it to fall. Then, a back cut is made on the opposite side, and the tree is guided down using wedges or a rope. This technique is best for tall and straight trees with a clear feeling zone. 
I would use the notch and back cut technique for trees that are leaning or have an irregular shape. Similar to directional felling, this technique involves cutting an incision into the tree trunk, but the back cut is made horizontally rather than diagonally. The horizontal cut allows the tree to fall in the direction of the notch, even if the tree is leaning in a different direction. This technique requires a skilled tree surgeon and careful planning. 
Overall, it's important to use the right felling technique for each circumstance, considering the size, shape, and location of the tree and the surrounding environment. Safety is always my top priority, and I take all necessary precautions to ensure that the tree is felled safely and efficiently.
