Our Mission Statement and Vision
Thinking of Doing the Tree Removal Yourself?
How to remove a tree safely and effectively can be a daunting task. There are several important things to consider before beginning any tree removal project. The first two options are usually to hire a service to remove the tree for you or if possible, remove it yourself. There are several factors to consider, such as your available financial resources, the location and size of the tree, and tools required for the task. If you are low on budget, we recommend at least calling around to see if any tree removal companies are willing to work with you on price, and maybe even set up a financing option. When all is said and done, hospital bills cost way more.
Safety should always be your number one concern when working with any kind of tree. There are many steps that need to be taken to ensure the safety of employees and clients. First off, make sure that there is nothing underneath the tree that can become a hazard. Remove all rocks, sticks, trash, or anything else that could fall and injure someone or worse. Avoid placing heavy objects on or near the ground, this can also cause injury or death.
Make sure that you are protected with safety gear if you are doing a tree removal yourself. This may include hard hats, safety glasses, gloves, and perhaps even earmuffs or earplugs. Some people like to wear ropes to make sure that they do not fall, but if you use natural leaning equipment, you will not have to worry about ropes.
Tree removal equipment should include a stump remover. When a stump is ready to be dug up, a YouTube video called “stump hunting” can be helpful in determining what equipment you will need to successfully get the job done. You can purchase some great equipment to take your next stump dig with you from most sporting goods stores or online. A YouTube video will show you exactly what to look for when you are digging up a stump.
Some landscapers like to use cutting tools to help remove trees. Cutting tools are designed to cut trees in specific ways and by certain lengths. Be aware of the laws surrounding removing cut trees, as some cities do not allow cutting of trees taller than a few feet tall.
To remove a tree with a chain saw, begin by making several passes over the trunk using the chain saw’s cutting edge. The chain saw’s teeth will cut through the bark of the tree, but not the thickest part of it. Use a sharp pair of cutting knives to make a nice notch in the center of the trunk. It’s important to address these concerns before they get out of control. Over time, trees can cause damage to your property, especially your roof and shingles. If your tree has damaged your roof and shingles, you may need to hire a reputable roofing company for professional roof replacement in Chesapeake VA.
We will always recommend hiring the best company for tree removal in Chesapeake VA, but we understand that some smaller jobs might lend themselves to a safe and effective DIY approach. Use your chain saw to slowly cut away at the trunk of the tree until it is left just short of the stump. You may need to use a stool or something similar to help balance as you remove the main part of the tree. Once the tree stump is removed, clean up any large pieces of dead grass or branches that you may have missed. This will help keep your lawn and garden clear of small tree fragments.
Once the stump and any large pieces of dead grass or branches have been removed, sweep or vacuum the area. Vacuuming can help remove leftover soil that will be difficult to clean up. If the area where you removed a tree becomes moistened, you can help by adding a layer of plastic mulch to protect the roots of the shrubs. Smaller shrubs can be protected with this same mulch.
Safety During A DIY Removal: When doing a DIY removal of a tree, it’s always important to remove all safety equipment such as gloves, safety glasses and hat prior to cutting down the tree. Remove all tools from the area. Wear thick gloves and long pants, long sleeves, and rubber soled shoes. You should always wear goggles to protect your eyes from splinters and chips caused by wood cutting tools.
Hiring a Professional: Hiring a professional tree service is probably the best and most reliable way to remove a tree. Tree services are available around the clock and can be booked in advance, depending on the size of the tree. They have more experience removing larger trees and can also provide other valuable services such as landscaping, tree seedling setting and removal and other services.
When cutting down a tree, it’s important to always use the correct cutting equipment. Always wear the correct safety gear. If you’re unsure about how to remove a tree, it’s probably better to call in a tree service. Using chainsaws to cut down trees may seem easier than it really is, but they can be dangerous, particularly when cutting large trees.
8 Steps to the Tree Removal Process
In this section, we want to cover the basic steps and processes for complete tree removal, as well as what you can expect from our team should you hire Chesapeake Tree Guys to perform your tree service. Every so often, once a tree has lived a long, BUDDING (lol) life, it begins to show its age by dropping a few twigs and small limbs here and there. However, the longer the landowner ignores the decay of the tree, the larger the limbs that begin to fall. This can prove to be a much more dire situation for urban and suburban locales, harboring much more liability for obvious reasons- more people and property for the limbs to land on. When the tree has regressed to this point, it’s time to call a licensed professional to initiate tree removal services.
