DIY vs. Professional Tree Removal

By: albertaarb - June 1, 2013

Tree removal techniques have been perfected over the years, especially since professionals have come to understand that even trees have a unique personality of their own. Trees are affected by the weather, the insects that inhabit them as well as diseases, which can spread to them from nature itself. While you may try to do it yourself, getting professionals will ensure that your tree is not hurt and does not cause any damage.

Advantages of Professional Tree Removal Services

There are certain advantages to getting professionals to work on trimming or removing the trees on your property. For starters, it is illegal to remove trees without the right permits-- professionals will know the right doors to knock on to get the required papers.

The next is the kind of equipment that is needed -- felling trees is a huge task that requires heavy duty chainsaws as well as the right kind of tools to move them about.

Demerits of DIY Tree Removal Techniques

It is important for you to evaluate the condition of your tree and your ability to handle the issue on your own. You may save some money on it, but there are several things you need to consider:

  • Trees, if not handled the right way can be dangerous weapons in themselves, which can inflict injury if you are distracted for the slightest minute.
  • Sometimes, it's difficult to predict how a tree will react. What may seem like a strong branch may suddenly give way and leave you fatally injured.
  • There is a lot of videographic evidence to show that trees don't necessarily fall in the direction predicted. They could end up destroying a significant portion of your property as well.

Your life, limbs, property and the safety of others are some of the basic reasons you need to call in the professionals when dealing with felling a tree. They have all the requisite experience as well as qualifications to handle the job. They also have insurance that covers any accident they may be caused while on your property or any damage to your property.

There are several aspects to tree removal. They can range from simply trimming down a few branches to removing the complete tree right down to the stump. How expensive the entire affair is will depend on what you are having done to your tree. The bottom line is, hiring professionals well versed in tree removal techniques is a good investment.
