    Tree falling, or felling, is the process of cutting a tree at the base, and letting the whole tree fall to the ground. How the felling notch is formed, the manner in which the back cut is made, and methods for overcoming back and side lean are all major factors determining the success of a tree felling procedure.

    Felling can also be the safest method of tree removal, yet there is potential for catastrophic damage if not done properly. That’s why it’s important to rely on the experts at Wright Tree Service for safe & effective tree felling in Ottawa.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    See what our clients have been asking us about tree removal in Ottawa.

    The city of Ottawa does not allow for homeowners or business owners to remove trees arbitrarily. The city has several by-laws governing the removal of trees on residential properties, and unless a tree is smaller than 30cm at the trunk on property smaller than one hectare or threatening the health & safety of an area, odds are you're going to require a permit to remove the tree. To get a distinctive tree permit, an arborist report must first be submitted by a certified arborist. Wright Tree Service’s team of certified arborists are experienced in dealing with the city of Ottawa’s by-laws and can help guide you through every step of the tree removal process. If you have a tree you would like removed from your property, contact us today!

    There are a few instances where you are not required to get a distinctive tree permit to remove a tree from your property. These instances are:

    • If the tree’s diameter is less than 30cm
    • If the tree is within a private courtyard, solarium, or rooftop patio
    • If the trees are on a cemetery, golf course, or certain rural lands
    • If the trees are on a farm, nursery, or orchard
    • If the tree poses an immediate danger or risk to surrounding property or people

    In almost all other cases, a distinctive tree permit is required in order to remove an unwanted tree from your property. Contact Wright Tree Service today if you need help removing an unwanted tree from your property. We can help make the process easier for you.

    We do not recommend removing trees from your property on your own, even if they might appear to be small enough to handle yourself. An experienced arborist has a complete understanding of the inherent dangers of the tools, the dynamics of the interaction of the tool and a specific tree and it’s setting. These tools are designed to readily cut through a material that is much denser than your skin, muscle and bone, so proper safety knowledge is a must. While we are used to seeing trees stand still, they have biomechanical properties that allow it to withstand whatever the natural world can throw at it. There are a lot of unseen forces stored in the tree which you release when you cut it down. The best possible thing for you to do for your safety and those around you is to contact an Arborist.

    Normally, when an arborist removes a tree it is done with a chainsaw. Arborists are trained to assess each tree and the area around it in order to create the safest possible plan for removing the tree. The direction that a tree falls is managed by creating a directional notch. This is a specific cut which controls the direction that the tree will fall in, ensuring
    It protects buildings, roads, trees, and anything else nearby.

    Sometimes trees are too large or too close to nearby buildings or roads to be felled in this way, and require a different approach. In these cases it will be cut down piece by piece from top to bottom until the tree can be safely cut down.
