There are many options to consider when it comes to the best way to remove a tree from your property. Depending on the size and complexity of the tree, there is a way to get rid of the tree and prevent it from spreading.
One option is to simply remove the tree and let nature take its course – this will usually result in a viable alternative growing back. If there are no suitable alternative sites nearby then you may have to consider a more destructive method.
The most common methods for removing trees from your property are either by felling them with a mower or by using the power of a chainsaw. Both methods are both relatively cheap and can have a noticeable impact on the environment. A chainsaw is generally a safe choice if you have clear and unobstructed access to the area to be cleared.
If your neighbor has a larger tree that needs to be removed, you can go ahead and do it yourself, without a permit and with the necessary tools. A mower will probably be cheaper to replace, but will not usually provide a completely natural environment for the next three to grow from.
It is always important to ensure that you have a good strong tree-trimmer when cutting a tree down. You will need to cut a deep enough groove into the trunk to allow the timber to easily be removed. Many people make the mistake of trying to “tone” the tree, by making a bigger grove where the timber will be removed.
This approach will usually end up causing the tree to grow more quickly. However, the unwanted growth will often spread as a result of all the extra wood being added to the growing tree. By cutting a smaller area in a gradual fashion, you will ensure that the number of new trees will be limited.
Once you have decided which option would suit you best, there is some essential equipment that you will need. This includes a mower, mower blade, chainsaw, saws, chainsaw blades, mites, gloves, safety boots, pickaxe, chainsaw wrench, shovel, timber saw, auger and a large bucket or dugout.
If you wish to make the process much easier, you can opt to hire a tree removal crew to complete the job. Most companies will charge a low hourly rate, which allows you to focus on other areas of your property.
All in all, it is generally best to seek general advice from a professional. Ask for the name of a specialist in tree removal so that you can ask questions about the company’s credentials and their removal techniques.
For the most part, trees will naturally die after a period of time, but this can be hastened by certain practices. Tree harvesting should only be carried out by experienced tree handlers who are certified by a certification body. They should also have a good knowledge of the tree and its behavior so that they know exactly how long it will take to reach the ground and die.
So if you have a tree that is becoming a problem on your property, use the above information to decide on a suitable option. You can use a chainsaw or use the power of a chainsaw to help remove the tree.
