The dangers of DIY tree removal

1If you are contemplating embarking on a DIY tree removal project, think again. Tree removal is indeed a colossal task. It’s complicated, laborious and technical as well. Not to mention, it’s extremely dangerous.

Your best bet is to leave this job to experts. Here is why you should hire professional tree removal services:


Tree care experts complete the job with care and precision. They possess specific skills and knowhow to remove a tree without disrupting a neighborhood.

Before chopping down a tree, one has to consider several factors, the most important being its height. A professional tree removal company specializes in removal and trimming services. So, don’t take the risk of removing your backyard trees yourself. Get help from the experts.


As mentioned earlier, tree removal is hazardous. Not only can you injure yourself by falling, several people have died in tree-cutting accidents.

Anything can go wrong any time. If the tree is near power lines, don’t even climb to examine it. In case any of your tools hits a power line, you might be electrocuted or knock out the power in your neighborhood.  Contrary to what you might think, the black coating on power lines is not insulation. It’s actually weatherproofing for the metal cable. And it’s possible to get electrocuted through the weatherproofing.

It is, therefore, imperative to call a professional tree removal company to get the job done safely. These professionals employ proper measures to ensure everyone’s safety.

Equipment and tools

Occupational Safety and Health Administration has made it mandatory for tree care professionals to wear safety gear. Similarly, they are familiar with the right techniques and tools – ropes, chain saws and wood chippers – to cut or trim trees.

Homeowners, on the other hand, don’t have the required safety equipment or expertise to dispose of trees.

Time and convenience

Tree removal is a time-consuming task. The smallest of mistakes could cost you substantially, in terms of time as well as money. If you have a packed schedule, call a professional tree care company. They set a specific timeframe to complete the project. Not only do you save time, but it’s convenient as well.


Once a tree starts falling, you have no control over it. You can’t determine where it will fall. In worst case scenario, your poor judgment could result in the tree falling on people, homes or cars.

Dead trees

A dead tree is usually decaying from the inside out. Experts use high quality cranes to remove dead wood. In case your tree is starting to decay, call a professional to remove it before it collapses. Professionals know exactly how to bring it down because they understand the biology of different types of trees.

In a nutshell, homeowners should never attempt their own tree removal. If you think you will be saving money, it really isn’t worth the risk.
