The tree removal process does not have to be one that is difficult. In fact, you can probably imagine how it occurs. You could do this on your own if you had the necessary equipment such as a chainsaw, crooner’s, and the safety gear necessary to get you to the top of the tree first. It is something that is better suited for someone that has done this before and that also has all of the proper equipment, but if you want to do this on your own, here is what you should try to accomplish. Here are the steps that are necessary to not only prune your tree but to remove it if that’s what needs to be done.
To remove your tree, it begins with assessing how tall it actually is. The last thing you will want to get out of control is the fall. If you are going to cut it down, and then remove the stump subsequently, you must first assess which direction it’s going to fall when it is cut down. To eliminate this problem, you can start from the top of the tree. You can scale the tree, get to the top, and begin to cut off chunks. These will fall flat to the ground, avoiding any unnecessary problems such as the tree falling into your home.
To remove the stump, this can be done in three different ways. First of all, you can dig around the roots, sever the roots, and then use a truck with a pulley system to take it out. The second way is to put potassium nitrate on the stump and let it begin to rot at an accelerated rate. You will then be able to take it out much more easily. The third possibility is to contact a professional which can do all of this for you and more. They will ensure that your entire tree is taken down safely, and the stump is removed, without you having to worry about anything.
The process of taking a tree down can take several hours. However, cutting the tree down and removing the stump, is not the only part of this process. As you are cutting down the different portions of the tree, the branches need to be chopped up. This can take several additional hours. The branches can only be a certain diameter. The rest of them will have to be cut by the chainsaw and potentially use for firewood. If you don’t, you can still haul these off to the proper facilities where the remaining components of the tree can be removed.
It is very easy to remove an entire tree, but you must have some amount of expertise. It’s also recommended that you spend a little bit of time figuring out what the best options are. If you don’t have the time to do this on your own, and arborists or tree trimming company can come to your rescue, they will be able to do all of this for you, plus provide all of the cleanups, and this can be done in usually half a day. These suggestions will help you make some serious decisions on how you can remove your tree from your property.
