Tree removal could be a dangerous affair and a threat to your life might occur. The golden rule would be never to commit the mistake of removing the tree at your own end. This would be till that point in time where you can handle things in a safe manner. Till that point of time, it would be much better if you leave over the job to some well-trained professionals. In case if you have a small tree in your premises then you can remove it. This though considering the fact that you have the right skills, experience, and knowledge in order to do the job. The choice of a proper set of tools would also be important at this point in time as well.
Preparation for the removal of the trees
Having a proper preparation with regards to tree removal would be half the job over. To start off the process you are going to need an inspection of the tree. Then you would need to inspect the supplies that are necessary for the job as well. Just check out whether the tree would go on to lean in a particular pattern or not. If that does not work out to be the case you would need to plan out an escape route as well. Do figure out whether there are any obstructions when you are planning to make the tree fall. In terms of obstacles find out whether there are any structures or vehicles on the path as well. If you find that a proper and safe distance does occur. Then it is high time to get the ball rolling.
The process of removal
Once the necessary stock of supplies along with equipment happens to be there, the process of removing the tree can start off. With the axe knock on the bark for a few minutes and this needs to be undertaken at a few places. By doing so you can come across the fact of how hallow the tree happens to be. If you come across a less dense area the cutting would become a lot easy as well. Then you need to figure out which area of the tree you would like to cut. Find out the area where the tree leans and it does make sense to cut the tree in that area. So the tree would fall in that direction. The area where you want the tree to drop needs to be at a level. The reason being that the tree would not roll over once it falls.
At the hip height, you would need to make a horizontal cut and this about 1/3rd portion of the tree. The area where you want the tree to fall you should go on to perform this. In case if you are planning that the tree needs to fall down on the right side, make the cut in that manner. A perpendicular position to the tree cut would be there.
