The How and Why of Removing Trees
Though proper care can help trees live longer, there may be times when removing a tree is necessary. When this happens, a professional must be called to handle the Tree Removal. Removing a tree can be a dangerous job, especially for larger trees, and there is the potential for damage to the property if a tree is not removed correctly. That said, knowing when a tree should be removed as well as what to expect during the removal is important, even when working with a professional to remove the tree.
Trees may need to be removed if they are showing any signs they are no longer healthy and growing properly. If there are a lot of dead or dying branches in the canopy, if the tree isn’t producing new leaves, or if there are other signs of serious issues like cracks or cavities in the trunk or fungi growing at the base of the tree, it’s time to have the tree inspected. It may need to be removed. It may also need to be removed if it’s growing too close to the home, is suffering from a serious disease, or for other reasons.
Removing a tree is generally done by cutting off the branches first as this helps prevent any structures from being damaged as the tree falls. It also makes it much easier for the tree to be removed as it can be handled easier without all of the branches on it. Then, the trunk will be cut down. Depending on the location and the size of the tree, the trunk may need to be removed in pieces. The professional will work from the top down, cutting and lowering parts of the trunk, until it is completely removed.
Climbing onto a ladder with a chainsaw can be dangerous as there is a high risk of falling, of getting injured by the chainsaw, or by dropping a branch onto someone watching or onto a structure. If the trunk is removed in large pieces or all in one piece, it could fall in an unexpected direction, which could damage structures or injure those who are around when it falls. It could also seriously injure the person cutting the tree. Due to the inherent danger of felling a tree, professional assistance is a good idea.
