Safety in Tree Service
When removing a tree there are three main safety concerns. The first concern is that everyone within falling range of the tree is cleared out of the area, and monitored for safety. The second concern is that the tree is safely guided away from the property of you and those surrounding. The third concern is that you keep the tree away from power lines at all costs.
When pruning a tree safety is all about the correct use of hand tools, and the removal of potentially dangerous branches.
Hand Shears and loppers are extremely sharp. Some of these tools are meant to cut branches exceed an inch in diameter. When these tools aren’t used properly the risk of injury goes up dramatically. Furthermore, the entire purpose of tree pruning is to make sure that you remove the sick, aging, or dying branches from the tree. When you cut these branches they will most likely fall to the ground, a professional tree service knows to have a man on the ground, or for the arborist himself to watch out for anyone below him.
Stump Grinding should never be done without the proper understanding of how to use the equipment. These tasks are extremely dangerous and should only be handled by those who are trained to do so.
