Tree removal is as much of an art as it is a science.
It takes practice and experience to be able to get the job done right the first time, and since there are so many factors involved (and because so many factors involve trees), one must always do some research before attempting anything big. Trees can grow in different places, some more severely than others, so it’s important to find out where they’re growing before proceeding. Tree removal is a science in that trees can be damaged by both physical and chemical means, but they can also be harmed by diseases and insect infestations.
In most cases, the more severe damage will occur when a tree is in the initial stages of growing, while smaller trees tend to be more resilient and less susceptible to the same type of damage. The initial damage is typically caused by wind, soil erosion, or water. In the case of a tree that has been injured, it may be easier to remove it from its roots in the root ball has been broken open to make way for the tree to be removed from the ground, or if the tree has been pulled up and moved using heavy equipment.
Before attempting any type of tree removal that involves large trees, it’s a good idea to get permission from the owner of the land where the tree lies. There are different regulations concerning the size of trees and their removal depending on the particular municipality where the tree is located. Some may allow the removal of smaller, live trees, while others require the removal of only dead and downed branches. For a good deal of research into the particular type of tree removal techniques used in different areas, it’s often a good idea to consult with a professional tree removal company.
