The 6 Step Tree Removal Process
The trees in your garden give you peace and joy in many ways.
However, once they start dying or get infected, it becomes imperative that you have them removed. It may seem like a small feat but in reality it is quite a process. The professional tree removal service providers have a particular procedure that they follow through to facilitate safe tree removal for your residence.
Let’s have a look at the process and see if you can do it yourself.
1. Carry Out an Inspection
In the first step the tree’s surrounding area should be inspected for any hurdles that may get in the way of the removal such as unwanted stones or other structures that may be affected when the tree falls. Another inspection should be made for identifying any diseases that the tree may have and what hazards it may cause for the person removing it so they could take precautionary measures to protect themselves from such hazards. This inspection will also reveal how difficult the job of removing the tree is going to be.
2. Project a Direction for the Fall
In the next step, the tree removal professionals will examine the tree to determine the exact direction in which it is leaning because it will probably fall in the same direction. If they can project the angle of its fall, they can clear out that area so no one happens to be in harm’s way and ends up hurt because of an uncalculated fall.
3. Selection of Tools
Here, the removal expert will measure the size of the tree to identify which tools/equipment would be required to remove it efficiently. If the tree is too large, heavy chainsaws and tree cutters that run on electricity work best. If the tree is small, a simple hand saw works just fine.
4. Marking of the Undercut
After the choice of tools, small cuts are marked on the stump to make sure the tree falls in the same direction that has been cleared out for it in the earlier step. A small V-shape cut is made on that side of the tree that is expected to fall first of all and then the rest of the tree will follow. A back cut is made on the opposite side of the V-shape cut to relieve the tension in the tree that may stop it from falling freely.
5. Removing the Tree
Then the tree is finally chopped down as close to the ground as possible.
6. Stump Removal
Once, the tree is cut down the only remaining part of it is the stump which needs to be removed separately. There are two ways to remove a stump. One is called stump grinding and the other is stump removal. You can either turn the stump into complete sand or you can have it removed from the roots up.
The tree removal process, as can be clearly seen, is anything but easy. That is why you should not consider doing it yourself and always trust professional help for it. Professional Tree Removal services can guarantee a swift and speedy process for removing the dying tree in your lawn.
