Tree Removal Process in 7 Steps
Tree Removal Steps for Before, During, & After
Removal of a dead or dying tree is always best left to a professional tree removal service, especially when the tree is large and close to your home or business. The following tree removal process may seem simple enough; however, it could pose a significant risk to those involved without the right equipment and knowledge. No matter who is removing the tree, it is essential to be aware of all steps involved.
Steps Involved in Tree Removal
After you have determined that a tree needs to be removed, whether it is dead, dying, diseased, or poses a risk to others, the following steps should be taken before, during, and after tree removal. Initial steps are accessible for an individual to deal with before a professional arrives to remove the tree.
1. Clear the area. There should be room around the tree to lay flat on the ground once it comes down. Estimate the height of the tree and clear whatever you can from the immediate area.
2. Examine the tree. Notice which way the tree leans naturally—this could help determine the best direction it should fall. However, if you notice areas of decay, it could collapse easily and not fall where intended.
3. Pick an escape route, or two. If the tree begins to fall out of control, you will want a clear path to run in the other direction. Notice what other areas around the tree are free of obstacles and be prepared for anything.
4. Gather the right equipment. Depending on the tree’s size, you may be able to cut it down with a handsaw. Larger trees with a trunk diameter of a foot or more require more power from a chainsaw.
At this point, you would likely benefit from calling in the professionals.
5. Start the undercut. You have scoped out the area. You have an idea of the ideal direction you want the tree to fall. Now cut a V-shape at a 45-degree angle near the bottom of the side you wish to the tree to fall on. This undercut should be about a quarter of the tree’s diameter deep.
6. Start the back cut. Go to the opposite side of the tree and cut straight through about two inches above your undercut. The stress should release on the tree trunk.
7. Move out of the way. Go ahead and yell “Timber” to alert others the tree is about to fall.
What to do After Tree is Removed
Once the tree is down, you can easily remove branches to make it easier to dispose. Once the branches get removed, you will likely want to cut the log into multiple pieces to make hauling it away easier. We can also assist with the removal of the tree stump, which is often left behind.
