In some cases a tree gets to the point where it is essential to bid farewell to it.
It can be an agonizing choice to make, but in some cases the tree gets too near your house, gets too diseased, gets an incurable infestation of some bug, or grows too high and gets near a power line.
If any of these things occur, its finest to do the best thing and eliminate the tree.
Although you may have invested hours and hours getting the tree to where it is today, it is nearly dishonorable to the tree to allow it to suffer in bad conditions.
Often a tree gets to the point where it is necessary to bid farewell to it.
It can be an agonizing choice to make, however in some cases the tree gets too near your home, gets too unhealthy, gets an incurable problem of some bug, or grows too tall and gets near a power line.
If any of these things happen, its finest to do the ideal thing and eliminate the tree.
Although you might have spent hours and hours getting the tree to where it is today, it is almost wrong to the tree to allow it to suffer in bad conditions.
As soon as you have actually made the choice to eliminate the tree, you require to prepare its elimination.
I can’t start to count how many windows I’ve seen knocked out or cars I’ve seen crushed because of poor planning in the tree removal process.
Choose what instructions you want it to fall, and properly determine to make certain it will fall totally clear of anything else that it might potentially cause damage to.
As soon as you have the falling instructions planned, you should go up the tree and tie 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 adjust the instructions the tree is being decreased in, just in case it starts leaning towards anything it could ruin.
Now that you’ve taken all the essential preventative measures, you are ready to start slicing.
If you intend on using a by hand run saw or axe, please step back and think about how ridiculous that is.
Chopping down a tree by hand will take you permanently, and will not even start to be as accurate as utilizing a chainsaw.
If you don’t have a chainsaw, you should not even think about doing it without one.
Ask around with your neighbors and see if anybody has one that you could borrow.
If that doesn’t work, lease or buy one from your local home improvement store.
Before you start slicing away at the tree, you need to wear appropriate eye and face protection in case any wood chips fly towards your eyes.
I had a pal who blinded his ideal eye while cutting down a tree, so I hope all of my readers do not make the same error as he did.
Whenever you run a power tool, constantly be sure to use correct defense for any exposed parts of your body.
When making it, 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 wind up rolling to one side or the other.
If you cut in a “V”, the tree will have the ability to fall in the specific instructions that you desire it to fall.
Sometimes it might be a couple of feet off due to human error throughout the cutting process, however if you have some strong friends pull on the ropes you tied, you can line it support with the path you wanted it to take.
The entire procedure shouldn’t take more than an hour.
Removal of the stump can be somewhat more difficult.
You have a number of choices; you can rent out a stump chipper that will totally damage the visible section of the stump.
Or you can spend numerous hours digging it out.
Digging out the stump is a lot more extensive, but takes permanently.
If you have kids this shouldn’t be an issue.
Kids typically discover the thought of digging fun, and are excited to go outdoors and dig all day long with their pals.
This was the approach I utilized, and I had the entire stump out within a week.
Bear in mind that my stump had to do with 1 foot in size, and digging most likely won’t work for stumps much larger than that.
Often a tree gets to the point where it is needed to state farewell to it.
It can be an uncomfortable option to make, but often the tree gets too close to the home, gets too unhealthy, 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 best to do the right thing and get rid of the tree.
You may have spent hours and hours getting the tree to where it is today, it is nearly unethical to the tree to permit it to suffer in bad conditions.
