  • By Cutting Down the Entire Tree

This is the most common and by far the easiest technique to remove a tree. Every kind of tree requires a different set of tools to perform the job and there is a number of factor like weather, power supply lines etc. which need to be catered before starting the task. The cutter checks for the lean of the tree, defect in the trunk, cavities from previous pruning, and symmetry of the tree to see if the tree`s weight is perfectly balanced or not. After all this is done, finally, a rope is tied to the top to guide the tree in fall in the desired location.

A notch also called a wedge i.e. a sharp cut to help direct the tree where to go is made. In the end, a final cut is made known as Back cut. Using this the direction can be made a little left or a little right by cutting on either side of the tree. Hinge wood is the wood in between the back cut and the wedge. This helps in holding the falling tree for a while.

Climbing and Cutting the Tree in Sections

Another way of cutting down a tree is by climbing all the way up and remove little by little. You can start by cutting off the branches one by one and then proceed with lowering it in pieces. This method is preferred especially if your tree is near power supply line or any property. The climber needs to be a professional who wears protective suits/shields and trained for such tasks. After the limbs are removed, that’s when the role of a ground man comes into action. He must be able to direct the limb when it is cut free and carefully lower it on the ground. In the end, the cutter cuts the remaining trunk into desired lengths and lowered it using a rope if not enough space for them to fall. This process goes on and on until the whole tree is cut. But it should be noted that such a task is not encouraged for a house owner or an unprofessional trainer.

Using A Crane

I would say this is the safest of them all. It is practically more work for a crane and less for a human being. Just set the crane, level it up, lower the crane ball to the climber and once he is tied up the crane can hoist him to the top of the tree to proceed with cutting off the limbs.

Ground procedures and Wreckage Removal

Now comes the tough question that most of you don’t think of before cutting down a tree, “What happens when the tree is on the ground?” Obviously, you can`t leave it there or it would be a mess. You better gather up some hard tough men for this kind of job since it requires lifting limbs and placing them on a truck, cutting long pieces into smaller ones so that they are easier to carry and also run the logs through the wood chipper later. Once all this is done, they clean up what is left behind and move out.
