Standard felling: Using special cuts, a tree surgeon can determine the direction of fall of a tree. This technique is only possible if there is sufficient space.
Dismantling: If felling space is limited, the tree is often dismantled a section at a time using ropes and pulleys. This takes more time than standard felling.
Crane removal: Occasionally, when normal techniques are not suitable, it may be necessary to employ the use of a crane or mobile elevated platform. It is sometimes faster and therefore more economical to use a crane.
