Every tree removal activity leaves one vulnerable to serious risks and besides the hazards it can lead to an unclean job.

                                           –  “Safety should be the highest law”

We all love a bit of do-it-yourself and the satisfaction from the same is a delight. But there are certain tricks of the trade that need to be mastered to have a perfect outcome from the job. For the purpose of those, here are the necessary things to consider before tree felling:

  •          General Environment Survey.

It is of utmost importance that the immediate environment of the tree to be cut should be analysed and the quick survey of the same should be done before hand.

It must be ensured that the falling tree will not cause any harm to the nature or manmade environment around.

  •          Risks from power lines.

The task of tree removal in the close vicinity of the power lines is a job as risky as any. Be the lines live or not, it can cause serious troubles and lead to extended power cuts for the areas nearby.

Further the wire carrying structures like poles and towers can fall if the cut tree pulls on them.

  •          A worker is as good as the sharpness of his tools.

It is a well known fact that the success of any operation depends upon the working condition of the tools. Having a well sharpened and lubricated chainsaw is needed to get the job done with ease.

  •         Observing the tree.

A clear walk around of the tree will expose any risk causing elements like loose branches, rotting wood and whether the tree stands straight or not.

A dead or decaying tree is extremely unstable and for the removal of such deadwood it is best advised to avail the assistance of the tree removal company.

  •         The science of gravity.

There is no control over a falling tree whatsoever. Thus a precise assessment of the falling direction of a tree must be made firsthand in order to prevent any later troubles.

Poor judgement could result to tree falling on houses, power lines or people.

Thus to sum up, it is not advised to undertake such a critical job yourself. It isn’t worth the risk. For a hassle free and affordable tree removal, Leatherface Tree Service is the one stop shop for all arboreal works in and around the state of Dallas, Texas.
