In some cases a tree gets to the point where it is needed to say goodbye to it.
It can be an agonizing option to make, but in some cases the tree gets too near to your home, gets too infected, gets an incurable infestation of some bug, or grows too tall and gets close to a power line.
If any of these things occur, its finest to do the right thing and get rid of the tree.
Although you might have invested hours and hours getting the tree to where it is today, it is practically dishonorable to the tree to enable it to suffer in bad conditions.
In some cases a tree gets to the point where it is necessary to bid farewell to it.
It can be an agonizing option to make, but often the tree gets too near the house, gets too diseased, gets an incurable infestation of some bug, or grows too high and gets near to a power line.
If any of these things take place, its best to do the right thing and eliminate the tree.
Although you may have spent hours and hours getting the tree to where it is today, it is nearly dishonorable to the tree to enable it to suffer in bad conditions.
When you have made the choice to remove the tree, you require to plan its elimination.
I can’t begin to count the number of windows I’ve seen knocked out or cars and trucks I’ve seen crushed because of poor preparation in the tree elimination procedure.
Choose what instructions you want it to fall, and precisely determine to ensure it will fall entirely clear of anything else that it could perhaps trigger damage to.
Once you have the falling instructions planned, you ought to climb up the tree and connect 2 long ropes near the top.
Anchor them on the opposite side of the one that you want it to fall towards.
This will permit you to change the instructions the tree is being reduced in, just in case it begins leaning towards anything it could destroy.
Now that you’ve taken all the necessary precautions, you are ready to begin chopping.
If you plan on utilizing a manually run saw or axe, please step back and think about how outrageous that is.
Chopping down a tree by hand will take you forever, and will not even start to be as precise as using a chainsaw.
If you don’t have a chainsaw, you shouldn’t even consider doing it without one.
Ask around with your neighbors and see if anyone has one that you could obtain.
If that does not work, lease or buy one from your local house enhancement store.
Before you start chopping away at the tree, you must use appropriate eye and face protection in case any wood chips fly towards your eyes.
I had a good friend who blinded his ideal eye while reducing a tree, so I hope all of my readers do not make the exact same error as he did.
Whenever you operate a power tool, always be sure to use proper security for any exposed parts of your body.
When making the cut, you do not wish to simply cut a straight line into the tree.
It is best to cut a sideways “V” into the tree.
This is due to the fact that if you cut the straight line, the tree will end up rolling to one side or the other.
If you cut in a “V”, the tree will have the ability to fall in the exact instructions that you want it to fall.
Periodically it might be a couple of feet off due to human error throughout the cutting procedure, however if you have some strong friends pull on the ropes you connected, you can line it support with the path you desired it to take.
The entire process shouldn’t take more than an hour.
Removal of the stump can be somewhat more difficult.
You have several options; you can rent out a stump chipper that will totally damage the noticeable area of the stump.
Or you can invest countless hours digging it out.
Removing the stump is a lot more extensive, but takes permanently.
If you have kids this should not be an issue.
Kids frequently find the thought of digging fun, and are delighted to go outdoors and dig all day long with their good friends.
This was the approach I used, and I had the whole stump out within a week.
Remember that my stump had to do with 1 foot in size, and digging probably won’t work for stumps much larger than that.
In some cases a tree gets to the point where it is needed to state bye-bye to it.
