Over the years best practices for removing sick or damaged trees have evolved in step with evolving technologies. One of the most recent advances in tree removal technology is the grapple saw. The grapple saw represents the state-of-the-art in tree removal. It is typically attached to a crane or boom and allows the operator (tree surgeon) to maintain a safe distance while quickly and effectively removing the tree. Epic Tree Care provide expert grapple saw tree removal in North East Scotland for residential and commercial customers.

Sick or damaged trees, or trees that have been approved for removal to make way for development must be dealt with in a safe and effective manner. The grapple saw enables the tree surgeon to access virtually any tree, regardless of its location, dismantle it in stages and deposit the pieces into a designated drop zone where they can be safely removed for further processing.
