The Dangers Of Trying To Remove A Tree On Your Own

Blog

If you have a tree, or possibly a couple of trees, that you need to have removed, you may want to consider paying for professional tree service instead of attempting to do it yourself. To help you understand why it is so important for you to have a professional tree service do the job for you, you will wan to review the following things that could happen if you attempted the work on your own.

The Fall

It might not seem as though the fall would be far if your tree is a little on the small side. However, any fall from any height can be extremely dangerous. If you were to try to cut from the bottom of the trunk without first removing any of the limbs, that would likely create a different problem altogether. So the branches need to be removed, and climbing the tree or climbing a ladder is the best way to do it. Without enough experience, this is something that could be very dangerous for you, and is why it is so important for you to hire a professional tree removal expert to do it for you.

The Damages

Whether it is a large branch or the entire tree, if it falls on something, it is likely to cause a significant amount of damage. Therefore, it is very important to make sure that the fall is controlled. Some homeowners make the mistake of assuming that, as long as they have a rope tied around the trunk of the tree, they will be able to control where it falls. The thing is, how the trunk is cut, and from what angle, will determine the direction of the fall. You also have to take into account any strong winds that may alter how the tree falls. To avoid having a tree land on your house, your fence, or the neighbors property, you will want to leave this to the professionals.

As you can see, there are a lot of bad scenarios that could take place. The best thing to do would be to avoid such issues altogether by hiring a professional tree removal contractor. You will also want to make sure that you are taking a little bit of time to find the best possible tree removal contractor around. If you happen to know of a neighbor or a friend that just recently had some trees removed, you may want to ask them for a referral to the company or independent contractor that they used.
