This process begins by a climber installing a rigging line in the top of the tree overhanging an appropriate lowering point. Then the tree surgeon will begin from the bottom of the tree crown and attach the lowering rope to the first branch from the crown break. The surgeon will then make a controlled cut in the direction that the tree surgeon wants the branch to move. Finally it is over to the groundsmen to lower the branch in a safe and controlled manner to the ground. This is then processed and extracted from the garden and fed into the wood chipper. This process is repeated until the tree surgeon has reached the top of the tree and is only left with a standing straight stem.
The remaining tree will either be cut into small manageable sections and thrown to the ground, or lowered off its self using blocks and pulleys.
