Emergency Tree Removal Service Is Better Than DIY

Emergency Tree Removal Service Is Better Than DIY

Many homeowners don’t realize when they need emergency tree removal services or tree stump removal services or skip them just to save a few bucks. However, tree care work, in general, is very hazardous and dangerous. Successfully removing a tree requires expert knowledge of tree physics, biology, dangerous tools, and the latest tree removing techniques. Homeowners who attempt to perform their own tree removal can suffer many injuries from falling limbs, malfunctioning equipment, or the tree itself.  Homeowners who are considering removing a tree themselves to save a few bucks should really reconsider, and here is why.

Common Tree Removal Risks Include:

Powerlines

Working near powerlines is very dangerous, and homeowners should always assume that the wires are live. If any tool that is cutting the tree touches the powerline, the homeowner can get electrocuted and knock out the power for the entire neighborhood. Another myth homeowners assume is that the powerlines are safe because they’re coated with a black coating that is insulated, but that isn’t the case. That black coating on powerlines is weather-proofing, but homeowners can still get electrocuted through that weather-proofing material.

Improper Equipment

Cities require tree professionals to wear protective gear from head to toe for good reason. Tree care professionals are also trained and have years of experience using equipment, such as chainsaws, sharp saws, ropes, cranes, wood chippers, and more. Homeowners will need to buy or rent this equipment to perform their DIY tree removal, and it requires knowledge and experience to be used. To perform a successful tree removal, homeowners need to know how to properly use this equipment; otherwise, they can be exposed to many dangers.

Decaying Wood

A dead or decaying tree is often dying from the inside out, making it very unstable. Even professionals with years of experience have difficulties removing such trees. If a homeowner notices a decaying or dying tree, they should seek out the services of a professional tree removal company before the tree collapses. There is a critical tree biology process to be understood when removing a Dying tree. This is something professionals know and understand.

Gravity

Once a tree is cut, no one has control of where it goes. It can fall on top of the person cutting the tree, powerlines, or the home. Poor judgment could cost thousands of dollars and injuries or death.

In short, homeowners should never perform a DIY tree removal. This is a risk not worth taking and will likely cause more problems than if they would have gone with a tree removal company from the start.
