Tree Surgeon Jargon Buster


Felling is the complete removal of a tree or trees by the Tree Surgeon. This is done with a number of cuts to the base of the tree trunk and done in such a way that the tree will fall on a predefined path. If there are obstacles around the tree the Tree Surgeon will employ the Section Felling method. (see Section Felling)

Section Felling

When a tree is unable to be felled in one go, maybe there is a building or obstacle in the way or it is just unsafe to do so, a Tree Surgeon will use ropes and a harness to scale the tree and bring it down in manageable sections. This method can be used to bring awkward to access or dangerous trees down also.

Crown Reduction

This method is used to reduce the overall size of the tree and alter its shape. Crown Reductions can be used to let more light through the canopy to the garden below.

Crown Lift

A Crown Lift is when the lower branches of the tree are removed with will give more light and space under the tree, useful if you ever banged your head on a branch while walking in your garden.


Thinning is when there are too many trees too close together, the Tree Surgeon will decide which trees should be removed to allow the others to thrive and stay healthy.

Stump Grinding

Stump Grinding is when the tree stump left after felling a tree is removed. The stump is ground down to a level lower than the surrounding land, No trace of the tree stump is left above ground and can then be grassed or paved over.
