Removing a tree is something that needs professionalism and relative accuracy. If the tree is cut in the wrong procedure, it can lead to fatal accidents. However, you can easily handle it if it isn’t such a big and tall tree. Regardless of that, you will still need to follow the right procedure when removing the tree. That said, here are some quick DIY tree removal tips to help you out.

Tree Removal Tips

Get the right equipment

Before you start falling any tree, you will need to assemble all the necessary equipment for the job. The equipment includes the protective gear, the cutting tools and materials, and a first aid kit. For the protective gear, you must have a helmet, gloves, goggles, ear protectives, and the right boots. These will help to keep you safe as you are cutting down the trees. If you are using a power saw, ensure that it functions properly. Suppose it is gas-powered, ensure that there is enough fuel for the project you want to handle.

Cutting down the tree

Always study the tree before you start cutting it down. Determine the direction that it leans, check if there are any broken or dead branches, and ensure that there is a clear area that it will fall. The tree should not damage anything when it is falling. Once you have checked that everything is perfect, you can start cutting the tree. • Find a place that is above the ground so that you can start cutting the tree. If you are using an ax, knock the tree around to find an area that it will be easier to cut. The best height to cut the tree should be anywhere below your waist.

• Decide where the tree should fall safely, then make a wedge on the side that it should fall. The wedge should not be too deep. After creating the wedge, start cutting the tree from the opposite side so that it can fall where you intend it to fall.

• Create a back cut. The back cut is for deciding the thickness of the holding wood. It is also the piece that will control the fall of the tree. Ensure that you make a thick back cut that should be above the horizontal cut by around 1.5 inches. You can always place a wedge as you cut the tree to avoid it tree pressing down on the chainsaw.

• Once you are done with the back cut, you will have a holding wood that is even. This will make the tree start falling. As the tree falls, place more wedges to the cut to avoid it moving back and falling on the opposite side.

• Get going. After you have placed as many wedges as you can, start running away from the tree in the opposite direction. Before you run, stop the chainsaw, place it down, then run from the tree. Apparently, the tree will be falling on the other side, but you need to be safe enough. Always keep watch of the tree as you run just to be sure it is falling in the right direction.

This is the simple way to cut and remove a tree. If you have never done it before, you will need to follow each step keenly and in case of any concerns, consult a professional.
