Tree Removal Tips
You should consider calling a tree removal expert if you have any of the following conditions:
- You have large tree limbs that are broken or hanging down, requiring overhead chainsaw work. This can be very dangerous and should not be done alone.
- Your tree is uprooted or downed. This can create an unnatural pattern of tension and pressure points. An inexperienced chain saw operator may be in severe danger if attempting to cut a tensioned limb or tree trunk (called a “springpole”). Under these circumstances, you can experience an extremely violent, catapult-like reaction.
- The branches are too close or maybe even coming in contact with utility lines. NEVER attempt to move them on your own. In this case you should call your local utility company.
In general, when there is any tree removal or limb removal task that you have not been properly trained to handle or are uncomfortable taking on, call for a professional opinion.
Another aspect of tree removal that is often overlooked is the cleanup process after the tree is removed. Be sure you are clear about whether or not your estimate includes cleanup and who will be doing it.
