Why removing trees by yourself could result in death or serious injury

Tree RemovalTree removal is a challenging task that requires expertise, caution and calculated moves. It may seem a simple task to some but you cannot appreciate its magnitude of the task until you are attempting it, and by then it may be too late, the unfortunate would already have happened and sadly, you may be seriously injured. To avoid injuries when removing a tree in your yard, you need to take some precautions, such as wearing safety equipment, knowing the best time to cut it or to avoid all these troubles hire a tree removal professional. Someone might tell you that removing it on your own will save some costs, but you may end up running into serious losses if it hits your house, car or other valuables. Hiring a professional in Minneapolis or Bloomington or the Twin Cities will ensure that the tree is removed carefully eliminating the dangers of hitting the house or car.

Handling tree removal tools is a challenge that people sometimes encounter. There are tools such as wood chippers, chainsaws, and ropes among other power and hand tools. All these can be dangerous when handled poorly. For example, a chain saw requires total concentration; a slight distraction can lead to cutting the tree at the wrong point or inflicting damage on yourself within a fraction of a second. When these tools are used by somebody who is not familiar with them, distractions easily happen. A slight distraction in the use of a chainsaw, as we have seen above, can cause great damage, and some of these are irreversible, you can have your whole leg or hand cut off. You can cut the tree at the wrong point making it move in an unintended direction. Given that the tree might be huge and heavy, turning it in the required direction might not be possible. This calls for professionals, people who have done this and knows the dangers of distraction and how to avoid it or if you have the courage to do it use safety protection clothes. Although we insist on the use of safety clothes, it’s important to know how to use them as this may make a difference between life and death.

Apart from the tools, the tree itself presents a real danger; because of the risk of falling in the wrong direction, poor climbing, poor support systems, or the possibility of electric lines near the spot among others. Poor handling may lead to a tree falling in the wrong direction hitting a house, car, electric poles or even a passerby. It’s important to ensure that the tree is supported well and at the same time ensure that there are no distractions when using the power or chain saw. Always consider the size of the tree, for the small ones, while using the necessary safety equipment and the right skills, you can probably handle it. For the huge one or those which are near electricity poles, houses or a road, engage a professional as the dangers are real and only an experienced person may handle it well.

As said before, tree removal in Minneapolis may seem an easy task, but the monumental task ahead could be a surprise. A professional tree remover first studies the site and the tree itself, then decides on the strategies to use to fell the tree. He will know the types of tools to use as well as the safety precautions which will be employed. You should always hire a professional, as this will ensure that the job is done well as avoid the possibilities of injuries. Get a professional in Minneapolis, Golden Valley or the twin Cities and eliminate some of the dangers that may come with felling a tree.

Removal and Trimming Work Provided

A floral store contacted us and asked us to do a tree removal in Maple Grove at their location, so that they would have room for a landscaping display in the following year. They also needed two neighboring trees to be trimmed of some of their branches, so that an appropriate amount of light would reach the landscaping feature in the years to come. We let the floral store owner know that they called the right tree company, because we specialize in tree service.

We arrived to start the tree removal

The crew arrived on a beautiful, sunshiny day to start the tree pruning service for the client. The crew first started to get ready for the tree removal. We brought our best equipment, so we could safely remove the tree without any problems. We started removing the higher branches with our bucket crane and several of our crewmembers were on the ground to retrieve the branches safely.

The crew had successfully removed the tree, so they moved on to removing the stump with our stump grinding machine. The crew made sure all limbs and debris were cleaned up thoroughly, then the crew began trimming the two trees that had been requested.

When the crew had all the tree trimming completed and the site cleaned they started packing up the tools to leave. The client was very happy that they used our services once we were finished, because we didn’t interrupt any of their regular business. The client said they were first worried that our tree removal would stop their customers from entering their business, but the entire crew made sure to keep the area clean and safe, so they could still conduct business.

A month or so ago a carpet and flooring dealer in our area was wanting to have the outside of his property improved. He had done a lot of the landscaping and yard work on his own, but he really needed help with stump removal and tree service in New Hope to really clean up the space. He contacted us because he heard we were the best tree company in the area. We met with the client to evaluate his trees and provide him with an estimate for his tree trimming.

The Tree Care Process Began

We arrived at the business and the owner showed us the trees that he wanted trimmed and the stump that needed to be removed. His current trees looked really overgrown, and one of them needed to be removed due to the disease that it had. We discovered this after doing a thorough examination of the trees on his property, and he was really grateful for our attention to detail.

We helped this store out with our new hope tree service

The crew showed the client a couple of signs that the tree was diseased such as the mushrooms growing at the base of the trees and hollowing present in the tree. The crew started the tree removal immediately. Once all the branches and trunk sections were removed, the crew used the stump grinder to remove the stump. The crew started trimming the other trees that were very overgrown and doing another stump removal on the property. At the end of the day we were able to have all the tree trimming and stump removal completed for the client. The crew made sure that there wasn’t a branch or leaf left on the property. We always make sure to leave a property in better condition than when we arrive.

The client noticed that we were getting ready to leave, so he came out to look at the work that we had done for him. The client was very pleased with the tree trimming that we provided for him, but he was more impressed with the diseased tree that was removed along with the stump. He said the outside of his property had never looked this good before, and he really appreciated the hard work that our crew provided for him. He said he would never let the property get in that condition again now that he has such a reliable and dedicated tree company that he can count on.

Retail Space Needs Urgent Tree Service

The crew arrived at the retail center and started evaluating the trees. One needed a tree removal fairly urgently, because the tree was not healthy and hadn’t been healthy for some time. The crew wanted to check the other trees immediately to make sure that they didn’t have the same disease, and thankfully they were in good health. A few of the trees just needed to have tree pruning done and one tree needed to have tree trimming done to the brances. We gave the property owner the estimate and he asked to go ahead and start the work.

The crew went to work on removing the unhealthy tree. The crew was able to situate the bucket crane where it wouldn’t interfere with any of the business within the strip mall. The crew removed the tree, then did stump grinding, so that any trace of that tree would be gone. The crew pruned a few of the trees, then started trimming the one tree that needed trimming. The crew worked continuously throughout the day to get the project completed for the customer. It’s a good thing that the weather cooperated, so the tree pruning and tree removal could go on without any problems.

The crew got the job done and had the entire area cleaned. The crew never leaves a worksite without making sure that all limbs, leaves, and debris are cleaned up and removed.

Emergency Service Puts Homeowner at Ease

We got a call after a bad storm last month from a homeowner with a tree that had a branch hanging off in a dangerous way. He called our Wayzata tree service to take care of it before it landed right in the middle of the driveway.

The homeowner sounded frantic and we let him know that we would be right out, which we were. We arrived to the home and the homeowner was right, the limb was huge and would be tricky to remove, but the tree cutting had to be done. While we were there he also asked us to examine the other trees on his property since we were already out there, and we let him know that we could do that for him.

The tricky tree removal was about to start.

We were glad that we brought our bucket crane, because the tree branch was hanging directly over the driveway. It was also near the power lines. The crew started safely removing the large branch and within no time at all the branch was removed. We went ahead and did some tree trimming to the tree. The tree was healthy, but was in desperate need of trimming. We wanted to make sure that if another bad storm hit that the homeowner wouldn’t have to worry about the tree limbs hitting any power lines or the home. The crew got that area cleaned up, then we went to examine the other trees on the property.

We were able to save the property's trees after doing tree trimming in Wayzata

All the trees were in fairly good shape as they just needed to have our basic tree care service (except for one). There was one tree that was in bad health. The crew was able to spot that immediately. When the crew walked up to the tree they could see that there were mushrooms growing at the trunk, and there was hollowing occurring in the area too.

We let the homeowner know that tree removal for the health of his other trees, which the homeowner told us to go ahead with. The crew trimmed the healthy trees, then removed the diseased tree. Finally, they did a stump removal too. By the end of the day the crew was able to do all the work for the customer. The customer was happy with the work that we provided for him and he told us how happy he was to find a reliable tree company. We came out immediately for him, then provided him with affordable tree services.
