tree Felling & dismantling


We are qualified tree surgeons and have been tree felling for many years which means we can quickly identify symptoms of decay, rot and disease in trees, risk to your property from overhanging branches or storm damage.

Our tree felling and dismantling service fully removes or part removes trees using rigging equipment (if necessary) to secure the tree and avoid damage to your property. We can dismantle or fell any size of tree; from small garden trees to large park trees.

The removal of dangerous trees is a necessity for safety on your property, and greatly helps in sculpting the garden you desire, allowing sunlight to reach new areas of your house and garden.

Is permission needed for the felling or dismantling of a tree?

In some cases a Tree Preservation order (TPO) may be in force on your property and therefore your local council will need to be contacted to check this. Consulting with council authorities is a service we are happy to provide at Smith and Goddard.

Power lines run though my garden, will this be a problem?

Whilst obstructions like this may cause a time delay to the tree felling and removal work, our professional climbers are fully competent to work around such obstacles and ensure a safe, high standard of work.

How do you fell a tree?

It will be dependent on the size and position of the tree, however in most cases tree felling and dismantling is conducted by hand by our experienced team using a chainsaw.


We would thoroughly recommend Smith and Goddard Ltd. They did a great job in taking down our very large fir tree today. They were very professional and well mannered. Also they are competitively priced for this area.
