In some cases a tree specifies where it is required to bid farewell to it.
It can be an unpleasant option to make, however sometimes the tree gets too near to the house, gets too infected, gets an incurable infestation of some insect, or grows too high and gets near a power line.
If any of these things occur, its finest to do the best thing and get rid of the tree.
Although you might have spent hours and hours getting the tree to where it is today, it is almost dishonorable to the tree to enable it to suffer in bad conditions.
Sometimes a tree specifies where it is required to say goodbye to it.
It can be an agonizing option to make, however in some cases the tree gets too close to your home, gets too unhealthy, gets an incurable problem of some pest, or grows too tall and gets near a power line.
If any of these things happen, 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 almost dishonorable to the tree to enable it to suffer in bad conditions.
Once you have made the choice to remove the tree, you require to prepare its removal.
I can’t begin to count how many windows I’ve seen knocked out or automobiles I’ve seen crushed because of bad planning in the tree elimination procedure.
Decide what instructions you desire it to fall, and accurately determine to ensure it will fall totally clear of anything else that it could perhaps trigger damage to.
When you have the falling direction planned, you need to go up the tree and connect 2 long ropes near the top.
Anchor them on the opposite side of the one that you desire it to fall towards.
This will enable you to adjust the instructions the tree is being decreased in, just in case it begins leaning towards anything it could destroy.
Now that you’ve taken all the necessary preventative measures, you are ready to begin chopping.
If you plan on using a by hand 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 accurate 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 anyone has one that you could borrow.
If that doesn’t work, rent or purchase one from your local home enhancement shop.
Prior to you start chopping away at the tree, you need to wear appropriate eye and face security in case any wood chips fly towards your eyes.
I had a buddy 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, constantly be sure to wear correct protection 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 because 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 mistake during the cutting procedure, however if you have some strong good friends pull on the ropes you connected, you can line it support with the course you wanted it to take.
The whole procedure should not take more than an hour.
Elimination of the stump can be a little more difficult.
You have a number of choices; you can lease a stump chipper that will completely destroy the noticeable section of the stump.
Or you can invest numerous hours digging it out.
Removing the stump is a lot more thorough, but takes forever.
If you have kids this shouldn’t be an issue.
Kids often discover the idea of digging fun, and are thrilled to go outdoors and dig all day long with their pals.
This was the technique I used, and I had the whole stump out within a week.
Bear in mind that my stump had to do with 1 foot in size, and digging probably won’t work for stumps much larger than that.
