DIY Tree Removal

DIY Tree Removal Ormond BeachDIY tree removal is one of the things we would never recommend any unlicensed and inexperienced person to do. It can be very risky and may cause injury and damage to property. 

It’s understandable why you may like to take on landscaping tasks around your home yourself once in a while. It feels good to get outside and work, the work gets done the way that you want it to be, and it will save you some money by not having to pay a professional to do it for you. 

Why You Need to Hire Professionals for Tree Removal

But there is one landscaping task that you never want to undertake yourself and that’s DIY tree removal. It can be dangerous to your health and cause many other concerns too. Here are some reasons that hiring a professional is highly recommended when trees need to be removed from your yard.

Personal Safety

By far the biggest reason you should never attempt to do DIY tree removal is because of how dangerous it is. Trees, especially larger size ones, act very unpredictably when being cut. They can snap off in a heartbeat and head in an unintended direction toward you or others helping you if you do not have experience doing this type of work. Working with heavy power equipment and working at heights can also be very hazardous for those who are not used to doing it. Each year across America many deaths and severe injuries occur because of unqualified homeowners trying to take down trees themselves.

Safeguarding Property

Not only are there hazards to you and others in the area when you are doing DIY tree removal but this can also cause a high amount of property damage if not done the right way too. A large tree falling on a home can cause damage to that home that runs over 6 figures. It can also be extremely hazardous and costly if a tree that is felled lands on power lines, fences, in a roadway, or on a driveway. Tree professionals know the steps it takes to safeguard property during the tree removal process and have insurance in place to cover any mishaps. 

Tree Professionals Have Special Equipment 

Another reason why its better to let a professional take down your trees instead of doing DIY tree removal is that they have the proper equipment for the job. That combined with their expertise and experience leads to tree removal work that is done safely and properly. Tree professionals have lift equipment, heavy-duty chain saws, and safety rigging that helps bring down trees exactly where the tree professionals overseeing the job intended. 

They Can Include Extra Tree Services in the Package

Once a tree is taken down it still will leave an unsightly stump behind. That means that the area where the tree once stood is still unusable. For the ground where the tree once stood to be fully reclaimed, the remaining stump must be removed. This is something that tree professionals can easily do as part of any tree removal package. They also can cut up the tree that’s been felled into firewood for you and this will save you much time and aggravation from having to do that yourself. These are just a few more good reasons why you should never do DIY tree removal.

Proper Clean Up

Without a doubt, felling a tree is a very messy job that will scatter debris throughout your yard. You can expect broken branches, leaves, and sawdust to be byproducts of tree removal project. Tree professionals have equipment such as shredders that will chop up small branches and mulch leaves and other equipment that will help them clean up the yard after a tree has been removed. Many times, you will barely even be able to notice that any tree work was done after they have finished with their expert yard cleanup.
