It is always easy to trim trees of medium or small size, but whenever you trim a large tree with heavy branches, it becomes very necessary to be extra careful so that you don’t damage the tree’s health. Tree trimming is important in keeping overall health and beauty of the tree. Working on trees has a certain level of risk involved. People who do not have knowledge can get injured while doing trimming in multiple ways. Hence it becomes very necessary to be aware of all possible risks involved.
Numerous incidents can happen while tree trimming, including exposure to electricity due to trimming done near power lines. It is also highly advised that people take necessary safety measures in using a chainsaw, which can be very dangerous. And one should always give extra attention to overhanging branches while performing tree trimming. You should consult with your neighbor prior to trimming a tree which is entering into your neighbor's property to avoid any issues with the neighbors.
The most common risks in tree trimming are:
Power lines are biggest the threat to your life if they are crossing tree branches and are hidden to your eyes.
Your equipment should be in good condition to do tree trimming safely. Sometimes, equipment like cutters, blades, etc. can rust and become ineffective to use. Not all the equipment can be used for all your tree trimming needs. Each equipment is specialized to perform a certain task and should be used wisely depending on its use.
Sometimes, trees can also be home of poisonous creatures or insects which can cause injuries while doing trimming. They can also have dangerous chemicals leaking, that is why a thorough inspection is necessary before starting tree trimming.
