As soon as you have actually made the option to remove the tree, you require to plan its elimination.
I can’t begin to count how many windows I’ve seen knocked out or vehicles I’ve seen crushed because of poor planning in the tree removal procedure.
Decide what direction you want it to fall, and properly measure to ensure it will fall completely clear of anything else that it might possibly cause damage to.
As soon as you have the falling direction planned, you should go up the tree and connect two long ropes near the top.
Anchor them on the opposite side of the one that you want it to fall towards.
This will allow you to change the direction the tree is being decreased in, simply in case it starts leaning towards anything it could destroy.
Now that you’ve taken all the essential safety measures, you are ready to start chopping.
If you plan on using a by hand operated saw or axe, please step back and consider how ridiculous that is.
Chopping down a tree by hand will take you permanently, and will not even begin to be as accurate as utilizing a chainsaw.
If you don’t have a chainsaw, you should not even consider doing it without one.
Ask around with your next-door neighbors and see if anybody has one that you might obtain.
If that doesn’t work, rent or purchase one from your regional home enhancement shop.
Before you begin slicing away at the tree, you must wear appropriate eye and face defense in case any wood chips fly towards your eyes.

Whenever you run a power tool, constantly make sure to use appropriate security for any exposed parts of your body.

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 direction that you want it to fall.
Sometimes it might be a couple of feet off due to human mistake during the cutting procedure, however if you have some strong friends pull on the ropes you connected, you can line it support with the course you wanted it to take.
The entire process shouldn’t take more than an hour.
Removal of the stump can be somewhat more difficult.
You have numerous options; you can lease a stump chipper that will entirely ruin the noticeable section of the stump.
Or you can invest numerous hours digging it out.
Digging out the stump is much more comprehensive, however takes forever.
If you have kids this shouldn’t be an issue.
Kids frequently discover the idea of digging fun, and are thrilled to go outdoors and dig all day with their good friends.
This was the technique I used, and I had the entire stump out within a week.
Bear in mind that my stump was about 1 foot in size, and digging most likely won’t work for stumps much larger than that.
