If you have a tree that’s become dead or diseased or you want to make more room for outdoor living, you’re probably thinking about removing a tree. If you’ve considering taking on this task alone, you might want to glance over what it takes just to prepare yourself to remove the tree.
Clearing Your Yard
Before you can remove the tree, it is important that your clear the area around the tree. Allow enough space for the tree to fall safely in any direction while avoiding any obstacles that it can damage. If you are unable to measure how tall the tree is, try to make a solid estimate and clear out everything nearby.
Predicting How the Tree Might Fall
In some cases, you might be able to predict how the tree will fall based on its location and surroundings. While this may help you determine where you should cut it, it’s important to remember that the most common cause or damage when people tackle this job alone comes from the tree falling in a different direction than was expected.
Gathering Tools and Equipment
You should be able to remove small trees with a standard handsaw. Large trees with a diameter of 12 inches or more will require more power. Look at which tools you have available and remember that safe and proper tree removal isn’t promised just because you have the basic tools.
