Felling is the process of cutting through a trees’s trunk at the base in order for it to fall in a particular predetermined direction. This is carried out by cutting out a ‘sink’ or ‘wedge’ in to the tree to determine the direction of fell then completing the back cut to fall the tree.

This process is used whenever there is space to fell the tree in question safely and the natural lean of the tree is in the intended direction of felling. Ropes can be used to pull over smaller trees against the natural fall of the tree or strops and wire ropes attached to either a vehicle or a winch can be used to pull a tree back and fell it against its natural direction of fall.

Often a tree can be taken down by removing the crown first then the trunk can be felled in to a small space and cut up on the ground.
