Tree removal can be a big hassle or an easy cost effective project. Many things factor into this to make it work smoothly such as; adequate tree removal equipment, man power, and weather conditions. Weather is a big thing to consider when going about tree removal, the wind is the biggest factor, it can turn a small tree into a devastating weapon. Using ropes to tie the tree off to an automobile, and using the automobile to pull in the direction you want the tree to fall is a good technique to insure more safety. The height of the tree is another factor to consider, being off by as little as one foot can cause big problems when the tree falls. When removing extensively large or tall trees it is recommended that professionals are called in to ensure your safety.
