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 know all steps involved.
Tree removal can be necessary for many reasons, such as dead, diseased, or dying trees or ones that pose a risk to others. After determining that a tree needs removing, 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.
The 7 Steps in Felling a Tree
1. Clear the area. There should be room around the tree to lay flat on the ground once it comes down. Estimate the tree’s height 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 to fall. However, if you notice areas of decay, they 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.
You would likely benefit from calling in the professionals at this point.
5. Start the undercut. You have scoped out the area and have an idea of the ideal direction you want the tree to fall. Next, cut a V-shape at a 45-degree angle near the bottom of the side you wish 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 tree’s opposite side 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 that 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 disposal easier. 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 removing the tree stump, often left behind.
