Removal Mistakes to Avoid
If you want to cut down your trees safely and efficiently, you’ll want to avoid making these 3 tree removal mistakes! Not only will they cost you more money and time, but they can also put your safety at risk. Below are 3 of the mistakes you should avoid so that you can have a successful removal project.
Not checking the tree’s condition
Planning the removal of your tree is a crucial part of the process. Before you can proceed with the actual removal, you must assess your tree’s condition. You should do this because once you cut down a sickly tree, it can damage your house or your neighbor’s property in the process. You can find out if your tree is healthy or not by using an arborist’s inspection checklist.
Making the removal too fast
Most removal contractors will advise against making your removal too fast. Doing so won’t give your tree the chance to fall at just the right angle. This means that it may hit your house, causing damage, or gather momentum and land right on top of your neighbor’s property. If you don’t want to cause damage, the tree has to fall the right way. You should wait until the right moment to make your removal fast.
Not cutting the tree branches
Not all tree branches in your yard need to be cut! In fact, many homeowners don’t even realize that they do! Just because a branch is a certain length doesn’t mean it’s ready to be cut. It’s possible that it’s still attached to the tree. To figure out if it should be cut, you should use a chainsaw to trim it. It will help you determine if the branch is ready or not.
