Tree removal is usually reserved for trees that are dead and thus causing issues for property owners. If you want to handle this process the right way, use these guidelines to get through this process smoothly.  

Be Careful With Rotting Sections

If you have a dead tree on your property, there might be some areas that have started to rot away. You need to be extra careful when removing these portions because they won't have as much stability as rot-free sections.

Some tips that can help you remain safe when treating these rotted sections include making sure everyone is away from portions that you're removing and not putting any of your body weight on them. Instead, you want to try to remove these sections from the ground so that you don't have to worry about falling.

Use Pole Saws as Much as You Can

When you remove a dead tree, you'll want to remove the top portions before working your way down to the trunk. This process will go a lot smoother if you use pole saws as much as you can. Pole saws are long and have automated saws on the end, which can cut through branches with ease.

You'll be able to use these pole saws from the ground for the most part. If you do have to reach branches that are pretty high up, you can simply use a ladder. Just make sure someone is holding the base. Also, be careful about planning out where the branches will fall to the ground.

Rent Out a Trailer

Once you start removing the dead tree piece by piece, you'll have a lot of wood to deal with. It won't cause you a bunch of stress if you just rent out a trailer to store them while you complete this tree removal process. There are all kinds of trailers you can rent out too.

You might be better off going with one that has solid sides so that you can easily keep tree branches and limbs contained. Just make sure you get a trailer that's big enough to hold all of the materials that end up collecting throughout this removal.

If you have to bring down a tree around your property, you want to take your time planning out this process from beginning to end. Then you'll know what areas to start on, what equipment to use, and what safety protocols to follow.
