Often a tree gets to the point where it is needed to say goodbye to it.
It can be an agonizing option to make, but sometimes the tree gets too near your home, gets too diseased, gets an incurable problem of some bug, or grows too tall and gets close to a power line.
If any of these things take place, its finest to do the right thing and eliminate the tree.
Although you may have invested hours and hours getting the tree to where it is today, it is practically wrong to the tree to permit it to suffer in bad conditions.
Often a tree specifies where it is necessary to bid farewell to it.
It can be an uncomfortable option to make, but often the tree gets too near your house, gets too diseased, gets an incurable infestation of some insect, or grows too high and gets close to a power line.
If any of these things occur, its best to do the ideal thing and eliminate the tree.
Although you may have invested hours and hours getting the tree to where it is today, it is almost unethical to the tree to permit it to suffer in bad conditions.
Once you have made the option to eliminate the tree, you require to plan its removal.
I can’t start to count the number of windows I’ve seen knocked out or vehicles I’ve seen crushed because of bad preparation in the tree elimination process.
Choose what instructions you desire it to fall, and properly determine to make certain it will fall entirely clear of anything else that it might perhaps trigger damage to.
When you have the falling direction planned, you should climb 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 direction the tree is being lowered in, simply in case it begins leaning towards anything it could destroy.
Now that you’ve taken all the necessary preventative measures, you are ready to start slicing.
If you intend on using a by hand run saw or axe, please step back and consider how crazy that is.
Chopping down a tree by hand will take you permanently, and will not even start to be as precise as using a chainsaw.
If you do not have a chainsaw, you shouldn’t even think about doing it without one.
Ask around with your neighbors and see if anybody has one that you could obtain.
If that doesn’t work, rent or buy one from your regional house improvement shop.
Before you begin slicing away at the tree, you must use correct eye and face protection in case any wood chips fly towards your eyes.
I had a buddy who blinded his ideal eye while cutting down a tree, so I hope all of my readers do not make the exact same error as he did.
Whenever you run a power tool, always make certain to use appropriate security for any exposed parts of your body.
When making it, you do not want to just cut a straight line into the tree.
It is best to cut a sideways “V” into the tree.
This is since if you cut the straight line, the tree will wind up rolling to one side or the other.
If you cut in a “V”, the tree will be able to fall in the exact direction that you want it to fall.
Sometimes it might be a couple of feet off due to human mistake during the cutting process, however if you have some strong buddies pull on the ropes you tied, you can line it back up with the course you desired it to take.
The entire procedure shouldn’t take more than an hour.
Removal of the stump can be a little harder.
You have several choices; you can lease a stump chipper that will totally damage the visible section of the stump.
Or you can invest many hours digging it out.
Digging out the stump is far more thorough, however takes forever.
If you have kids this should not be an issue.
Kids often find the idea of digging enjoyable, and are excited to go outdoors and dig all day with their friends.
This was the method I utilized, and I had the whole stump out within a week.
Keep in mind that my stump was about 1 foot in diameter, and digging probably won’t work for stumps much larger than that.
