Are there trees on the property blocking the sun? Are they obstructing a beautiful view? Do they fill your garden with excess leaves every autumn season? Are these trees too overgrown such that they are unsafe or unstable? Well, you might have thought about getting rid of them and are wondering how to do it.
You might choose to remove the trees yourself by cutting them down using large saws. You can do this and enjoy it as the large trunk falls to your lawn. However, there are a lot of safety and legal issues to consider. For instance, besides your own safety, you need to consider every person or animal nearby.
Note that, it’s quite difficult to predict where a tree will fall if you are using traditional tree felling methods. As such, it’s tough to guarantee the safety of nearby people or animals. Don’t forget about the risk of damaging the nearby property. Keep in mind that most trees are actually longer than they appear upright.
Therefore, when you cut them down, they will cover a larger area than expected. It’s likely that they would damage a nearby garage or house if you are not careful with the distance. Don’t forget the social and legal issues such as boundary issues. Other issues include property ownership, community attachment to heritage trees, issues with crossing property boundaries especially with the tree roots and disputes over obstruction of views.
Hiring A Professional Arborist Or Tree Surgeon
To prevent these and many more issues from coming up when you cut the tree down yourself, the only solution is hiring a professional tree surgeon or arborist. Keep in mind that trees need specialist attention. The art of arboriculture includes management, study and cultivation of trees and shrubs.
Tree surgeon (arborists) are professionals who are experts in arboriculture. Therefore, they specialize in the controlled and safe removal of damaged or healthy trees.
