Looking for tree removal in Charlotte NC? Read this post before you decide to remove a tree on your property.
It may be agonizing to think about, but in some cases a tree gets too close to the house, becomes infected or pest-ridden or grows too high and gets too close to a power line, and you must make the choice to remove it. Though you might have spent hours maintaining the tree and helping it grow to where it is today, it’s not good to force it to continue on in bad conditions.
As soon as you have made the decision to remove it, the first thing you should do is prepare for its removal. Due to bad planning in the tree removal process, I can not even begin to count just how many home windows I’ve seen knocked out or automobiles I’ve seen smashed. Choose what direction you desire it to fall, and precisely gauge making certain it will fall completely free from anything else that it can perhaps damage further.
You need to climb up the tree and connect two long ropes near the top as soon as you have the falling direction planned. Support them on the opposite side of the one that you desire it to drop in the direction of. This will certainly enable you to change the direction of the tree removal, should it start to lean towards something it could destroy.
Chopping down a tree by hand takes much longer and is not nearly as accurate as doing so with a power saw. If you don’t have a power saw, you could ask your neighbors to see if anyone has one that you could borrow or rent or buy one from your local home improvement store. (Alternatively, you could leave this task up to the pros! Contact us today for tree removal in Charlotte NC!)
Prior to cutting away at the tree, you should use appropriate face protection in case any kind of wood chips fly in the direction of your eyes. I’ve seen several people get blinded while cutting down a tree without proper protection, so I hope everyone reading this does not make the very same mistake! Always be sure to wear proper protection for any type of exposed body parts when using a power saw.
When making the cut, you do not want to merly cut a straight line right into the tree. It is best to cut it laterally by making a “V” shape into the tree. If you do this, the tree will be more likely to fall in the right direction.
As far as stump removal goes, you have several choices; you can lease out a stump chipper that will completely ruin the visible area of the stump. Or you could spend plenty of hours excavating it out. We also offer CHarlotte stump grinding and stump removal services if you would rather leave it up to a professional (which we highly recommend!)
