The removal of the stump usually to 1-2 feet and then removing the main root system. This means the tree is unable to re-grow and the ground is ready for replanting/redevelopment.

There are many techniques for complete removal but the most common is carried out using specialist lowering equipment with the tree taken down in sections (known as a sectional fell). Removing trees in this way means lawns, sheds and other obstacles can be avoided and left undamaged.

Reduce the top of the tree to the required height and then adjust the sides accordingly (see pictures in gallery for examples).
