There are times when you will need to have trees removed from your property in order to keep your family and property safe. During a bad storm, trees can be damaged and need to be cut down so that they do not fall somewhere you do not want them to fall. When it is time to have a tree cut down, it is best to allow a professional to handle the tree removal process for you. Use the following guide to learn what to expect when you hire a professional to take down damaged trees from your property.
The first thing the remover will do is make an assessment for what needs to be done. He or she will quote you a price for the job so that you know what to expect to pay to have the tree removal done.
The remover will have special equipment that he or she needs to use to remove the limbs from the top of the tree. There is a harness that attaches to the tree to keep the remover secure as he or she moves up the tree. The limbs need to be cut to ensure that they do not knock down any other trees or cause damage to the property when the remover lays the tree down.
The Limb Removal
The remover will know which limbs need to come off of the tree and how to get them to the ground without causing damage to your property or injuring anyone. If there are multiple trees that need to be cut down, the remover will usually remove all of the limbs from the trees before cutting any of the trees down on your property.
The Guide Line
A guide line is created by tying rope from one tree to another and wrapping it around the tree that needs to be chopped down. This allows the remover to guide the tree in any direction that he or she wants the tree to go when it is cut down. The guide line must be created properly or the trees could fall in a different way than the remover planned and could damage something or someone on your property.
Next, the remover will actually cut down the tree. When they cut the tree, they will cut one side of the tree and then the other. This is to ensure that the tree falls in the specific direction the remover wants it to fall.
Once all of the trees are down, they can be removed from your property if you do not need the wood. You can choose to have the trees left behind if you have a wood stove that you need to use during the cold winter months. Some companies will cut the trees into smaller portions for a little more money.
