Expert Tree Removal

Tree felling is the process of removing a tree by cutting or breaking it at its base. The purpose of felling trees is usually to prepare the site for building construction, forest management, land reclamation, road construction or to remove dangerous fallen trees after storm damage or disease.

Tree felling, with associated services being tree lopping or pruning, is the process of removing a tree from your property.

This can be done for several reasons, including because the tree has grown too large and poses a hazard to surrounding structures or because it needs to be removed in order to make room for construction.

Soft Felling

Soft tree felling is a method of cutting down an otherwise unmanageable tree which involves a careful approach to debarking the trunk and then severing it with specially designed tools.

It's safe for both people and wildlife, but should only be used by trained arborists who understand its limitations.

Trust The Professionals

It’s a job for professionals who understand the risks and dangers involved in cutting down large trees. We've been doing this since 2011 and take every safety precaution necessary.

This ensures that you are hiring someone with the necessary experience and liability insurance to ensure that your property is protected during the tree removal process.

Experienced Tree Felling & Soft Felling Services

As you might imagine, there are several important factors to consider when it comes to tree felling. You will need to know if the tree is diseased or damaged beyond repair, and whether you want a stump left over after cutting down the tree. Our tree felling experts can advise on what type of equipment we use for soft tree felling in your area.

When trees are removed correctly, they leave minimal impact on the environment. The tree can be used to create logs or woodchips which don’t just go to waste but benefit others around you by helping them maintain the health of their own garden through mulching and composting processes.

When a tree becomes dangerous, it is necessary to fell the tree in a way that minimizes danger. Soft or controlled felling methods can be used to bring down trees without causing damage to property or people. This type of work is generally safer and easier than chainsaw removal, which requires heavy machinery and special equipment for the job.

The primary reason to choose professional tree felling is safety. A large portion of our business comes from tree removal following storm damage, when the trees are extremely dangerous and difficult for untrained people to work around safely. The second most common reason is stump grinding – many homeowners would like a completely clear area at ground level after their tree has been cut down. In addition, we can also perform crown reduction for an even better looking result than traditional topping (cutting the top off) or open-crown thinning (selective cutting), which will help your trees grow better over time.

Tree Dismantling & Removal Service


Tree dismantling is a process in which trees are taken apart, piece by piece. This can be done for various reasons including the removal of invasive or damaged trees and risk management. It can also be used when removing a tree that has been affected by disease or other environmental conditions. For example, it may become necessary to dismantle a tree if it was damaged during a storm and poses an increasing safety hazard.

Dismantling a tree involves removing it from its site by cutting and chipping away at the trunk. It can be done to reduce disease risk or for safety reasons. Dismantling also refers to practices such as topping, girdling, or pollarding, which are techniques used in silviculture to stimulate growth in trees so that they will develop into denser forms more suitable for commercial use.

It may seem like a simple task to pull out a tree, but the reality is that it can be very dangerous if not done properly. Our skilled arborists have the knowledge and the proper equipment to safely remove trees in any environment.

Every year, the team at Peter Yeates Arboriculture are called out to fell trees in different locations across Hampshire.

Does Felling Completely Remove the Tree?

The answer is definitely no. It does not remove the tree, it removes only one of its branches or stems when you cut it. The other stems are still alive and will grow again making the tree look even bigger than before you cut any branch off.
