Sometimes trees need to be removed, the reasons are many and varied.
A tree maybe dead, or dying. It may be leaning at an angle that it is unsustainable, or most commonly it may be the wrong species in the wrong location - that cannot be meaningfully reduced and retained.
All other options should be considered before removal is set in motion. ie; can it be pruned or reduced in size to a safe, manageable specimen. Can just the dead or dying branches be removed.
In the right environment, standing deadwood is excellent for wildlife habitat. Dead branches and trees can provide a habitat to a host of flora and fauna (especially birds and bats). The general rule is to leave deadwood (or dead / dying trees & trunks) standing if you can. Similarly, cut and stacked cordwood left in piles is excellent habitat for hedgehogs.
Tree felling & removal should be carried out by qualified, professional, fully insured operatives. The actual method of any tree removal should be individually assessed and planned to avoid danger or collateral damage.
