Cardiff Tree Removal Specialists
At Tree Squadron, we’re experienced in carrying out tree removals and tree felling in Cardiff, Newport and the surrounding areas.
Tree removal is sometimes required if it is dead, diseased or dangerous. Every tree varies in size and location; our team is highly skilled to safely remove any sized tree in various locations, including confined spaces. Depending on the type of tree and its location, it can be removed by three ways: dismantling, sectional felling or felling.
Tree Felling and Sectional Felling
Felling allows the arborist to fell the whole tree from the ground. Sectional felling means that the tree is felled in sections, which are usually rigged down to prevent damage to your property. A tree can be dismantled using rigging equipment, but if the tree has become unsafe to climb and cannot be felled, a Mobile Elevated Work Platform (MEWP), also known as a cherry picker, may be required to make sure the whole operation is safe.
When trees wither, get old, or even die, they can be hazardous and nuisances for your garden and home, especially during natural disasters such as storms. When planning to remove such trees from your property, it is essential to hire a professional tree surgeon such as Tree Squadron to ensure a safe and efficient removal.
The Benefits of Tree Removals
If old, diseased or dying trees are left unattended, they can be a safety hazard. Untreated trees are prone to falling or breaking apart, with falling debris posing a risk to people and nearby buildings. In some instances, such as trees with overhanging branches, we will look to trim the tree instead, however in many cases a dangerous tree will have to be felled.
If you’re looking to have a flat, green space for children to play on, or you need a tree cleared for construction work, having the tree removed is the best solution. Whilst trees are important for the environment, recreation in green spaces and the building of new homes is also important.
It’s recommended that if you have to remove a tree to clear space, you should look to plant a new tree or plants on the plot where possible to maintain a biodiverse ecosystem.
Removing Diseased Trees
When a tree catches a common tree disease such as ash dieback or Dutch elm disease, it can lead to the loss of a tree. And not only that, it also means the disease could spread to other trees. You should look to have diseased trees felled in order to reduce the safety risks posed by the dying tree, but to also stop the spread to other trees.
Emergency Tree Removal
In the event of a storm, heavy rain or an unpredictable weather event; old, weak and even healthy trees could get struck down. However, if you need your tree removed urgently – such as it blocking access or it’s hit a building – get in touch with Tree Squadron to remove it.
Use of Modern Tools and Equipment
We use the very latest tools and equipment to ensure a tree is removed efficiently and safely. At Tree Squadron we will either use a Mobile Elevated Work Platform (MEWP) or ropes – or even a mixture of the two – when carrying out tree removal and sectional felling.

Tree Removal FAQs
Ultimately, if a tree is on your property, then it’s your responsibility to remove it. To do this, it’s recommended you call in an expert tree surgeon to have it removed. If a tree is situated, and falls, on your property, it’s your responsibility to remove it. However, if a tree falls into your land from another property, you should work together with the owner to have it removed. Some insurance policies can cover this, but usually only when there’s negligence or damage due to a falling tree.
There are many reasons why you might need to have a tree removed. If a tree is dead, decaying or has a disease such as ash dieback, then the safest thing to do is have the tree removed. Trees may also be removed for redevelopment works or if they’re in a troublesome location near buildings or power lines. Storms may damage a tree beyond repair, which is another reason where a tree may have to be removed.
The price of a tree removal depends on a number of factors. One is the original condition of the tree, if it’s damaged or diseased then extra care needs to be taken when removing a tree. The size of the tree and its location is also a factor, with larger trees requiring high access tree surgery and difficult-to-access trees requiring more expertise. If you remove your tree, you might also want to have stump removal too.
When a tree is removed, then it will leave behind a tree stump, which still takes up space in your garden, can be unsightly and also hazardous. At Tree Squadron we also offer tree stump removal through stump grinding, which uses specialist machinery to remove the tree stump and leave you with a flat section of ground.
