Emergency tree work

Occasionally, trees will fail in ways that aren’t entirely predictable. This can result in precarious situations with trees suspended in other trees, or across roads, pathways and buildings. Dealing with such situations is not always as straightforward as it may seem. With the weight of the trees, sometimes tonnes in weight, large forces are at play with significant potential energy stored up in tension and compression in the wood fibres ready to be released with catastrophic consequences if not dismantled in the right way. See below for some examples of emergency call outs that Leeds Tree Care has dealt with.
