Many people think that all they need to remove a tree from their property is a chain saw. They think that stump removal or stump grinding are even simpler as long as they have the required tools for these tasks.
Having just the tools is not sufficient for tree trimming, tree pruning or for stump removal what is more important is the knowledge and the experience to do it correctly. Many property owners that jump right into felling a tree on a Saturday afternoon thinking that they will be done with it in two hours time end up wasting their entire weekend and the week days that follow in repairing the damage that they cause to their property and in cleaning up the mess caused in the process. If you think that you can save some money on your tree removal or stump grinding needs by handling these tasks yourself, then the chances are high that you end up being wrong.
For example, when you are removing a tree, many factors have to be taken into account, there is a bit of science involved in cutting a tree safely without damaging the property, parked vehicles and the people are that around. Many think that they can pull down a tree in any direction they like just by a tying a rope and pulling in the desired direction after a bit of chopping. The direction in which the tree will fall will depend on where the ‘centre of mass’ is located. This in turn is decided by the structure of the tree. Before you can put the chainsaw on to the trunk of the tree, you should first study the structure of the tree and decide the direction in which you want the tree to land. The tree will fall in the direction in which it has the most branches and you cannot just pull it in any direction you like with a rope. You first need to cut down the branches carefully to bring the center of mass of the tree to be in line with the main trunk of the tree so that you can pull it down in the desired direction.
