Can Tree Removal Be a DIY Project?
For very small, younger trees we can provide some tips on tree removal. But forger larger, mature trees the answer to this article’s title question is a resounding no. There’s no financial conspiracy reason behind this. It’s not as if, the tree care industry are writing articles or releasing news to the press to further our financial gain. It’s simply about safety.
There have been far too many fatal and severe accidents involved by homeowners trying to remove trees and even professional companies. Did we mention how dangerous the work was in this business? If you’re thinking about removing a large tree in your yard, ask yourself if you’re aware of all the proper safety procedures. Do you have the right equipment or clearance? You can just as easily cut a tree the wrong way and have it fall over on you or have it fall and seriously injure or kill someone else. We don’t have to tell you the legal ramifications of what would happen in that particular situation.
The key thing to remember is tree removal is a job best left for professionals. Not to be rude or condescending in any way but, this is not something that should be performed by amateurs or your common home/property owner. There’s a reason why tree care companies invest and spend thousands of dollars annually on insurance, workman’s comp. and equipment.
