How Tree Workers Safely Bring Down A Tree

It is a good idea for you to call a professional if you need tree removal in Dillsburg, PA. It can be dangerous for you to try to remove a tree on your own. Our tree professionals know how to take the proper precautions to remove a tree.

Have the Proper Equipment

One of the keys to staying safe while cutting down a tree is to have the proper equipment. Our professionals have safety gear, and proper cutting tools, safety systems, and experience to ensure everyone is safe during the process. 

Assess the Tree

Our team will assess the tree before they cut it down. They will check to see if it has any disease. They will also estimate how long the tree is and create a plan for removal.

Clear the Area

We clear the area before performing any work. We will remove any obstacles or interferences from the surrounding area. This may require that you move your vehicles or lawn furniture. Additionally, you will need to make sure that any pets and children stay in the house.

Remove the Upper Branches

Our professionals will start by removing the upper branches of the tree. They will have to stand on a ladder or use other equipment to remove the upper parts of the tree. This reduces the weight and span of the tree when it is cut down

Cut Off the Lower Branches

Next, we will move to the lower branches after cutting off the upper branches. This further reduces the weight and span of the tree and prepares it for the next step.

Tree Removal

The next step in this process is to remove the trunk of the tree. A chainsaw is usually used to cut the tree. They will make sure that there is no one around the tree or the designated falling area. In some cases, it is not safe to let the tree fall. If that is the case, then the tree removers will have to cut the tree into small pieces.

Grind the Stump

The final step in this process is to remove the stump. It isn’t always the easiest step. Our team may have to use a stump grinder to remove any lasting parts of the tree.

Cut The Tree Into Sections

We will cut the tree into small sections after it has been cut down. Disposing of the tree will be a lot easier if the tree is cut into small sections. An old tree can also be used as firewood.
