How To Remove The Old Trees

There is a limit for every tree to end growing stage and has to say Bubye.

It is a painful decision to take, but at times, the tree gets too big in size and starts appearing in front of house.

Many diseases attract that tree and get a permanent swarm of some pest.

The big size also gets closer to the power lines which is dangerous. It will be a good decision to get rid of that big tree if any of these signs start appearing. It’s very hurting to destroy a tree for which a person has spent many hours, but it is also injustice to the tree to allow it to suffer from such bad conditions.

First make a plan to how to remove that tree. I know a person who is getting tired of counting the broken windows, knocking of the door, crushed cars just because of the poor planning of removal of tree.

It is very important to decide that on which side your tree will fall during the removal process so that no one got damages because of your tree.

After completion of your planning, it is recommended to tie two long ropes on the top of your tree and anchor them to the side where the tree will falls.  This thing allows taking control over the falling of your tree without any harm to others otherwise your tree could destroy many things near your surroundings.

Later than taking all the recommended precautions, chopping is ready to start. If someone wants to chop by himself, he has to take care of himself with those tools (axe or saw) which can damage anyone.

Chopping the tree by hand will take a lot of time also inaccurately that is why someone who has a chainsaw asks and borrows it.  If no one has a chainsaw, go and rent a chainsaw or buy it if it is needy.

Always wear face and eye protection before start chopping of your tree. Once upon a time, during chopping, wood chips fly into a person’s eye and blinds his right eye that is why never do this without protection. It is compulsory to wear protection accessories not only while chopping, but also whenever operating a power tool.

Once chopping starts make sure to make a cut in “V” shape. If someone cut a straight line, then the tree could fall by rolling to one side or the other side. If the cut is in “V” shape, then tree will fall exact on the direction where person wants it to fall.

Frequently it is possible that the tree will fall at some distance according to your measurements but this is only because of the human errors while cutting the tree.

If your friends are strong enough to hold the rope tightly, then the tree will fall on the exact direction where a person wants it to be. This whole chopping process can be completed in an hour and not more than this.

Now one difficult thing will appear that is removal of stump or base of your tree. Here, a person has several options; he can spend hours and hours to dig it out or he can rent a stump chipper completely remove the visibility of the base.

It is an observation that kids enjoys digging that is why if someone has kids then he could assign digging process to them because kids love to dig all day out with their friends. But if your tree has a stump more than 1 feet, then digging may not be done, and it will require a stump chipper.
