As tempting as it may be, you must NEVER remove a tree in your garden without professional aid. Here’s why:
An Eye Witness Account
Our tree cosmetic surgeon was idling around his home at the weekend when they happened to find a neighbour connecting a cleaning line around the trunk of a small tree in their garden. By small, we imply about 8 or 9 feet high. Believing nothing more of it he merely believed they were moving the existing position of the line.
How wrong they were! A few moments later on the noise of a handsaw might be heard. Interest was instantly punctured so naturally it implied another peep out of the window. To his horror, the neighbour had gone about their tree trunk with absolutely nothing more than a washing line to stable it (in reality, we wouldn’t even go that far)! Instead of paying for professional tree felling and removal, he decided to do it himself, with very little knowledge.
What ensued was nothing except extremely unsafe. Getting nowhere with the handsaw, the neighbour returned and disappeared with a chainsaw. Now, we know you have to understand how a power tool like this works and how to handle it or the repercussions might be life changing.
“Cutting” a long story short, the neighbour managed to cut through the trunk of his tree, and then (again to the scary of our friend) merely pulled it so it fell to the ground, leaving about 4 feet of tree still in the ground.
This might not sound like it’s that much problem however the things that could have failed do not bear considering. This person was directly missed out on as he dragged the trunk away using the cleaning line. If anything had actually gone incorrect with the chainsaw, we’re not even going to discuss what might have occurred!
What if it had got tangled with the cleaning line? No safety clothing was being used so the loss of a limb (or a fair few digits) was a genuine possibility. Worse, the tool could have gone out of control since of the method it was being dealt with so the injuries pointed out above could have been the least of this man’s worries!
Is security first! Apart from the truth the tree this male who, in his own mind most likely thinks trees can endure almost anything (a story for another day) has actually probably eliminated the poor thing off entirely, there is likewise the fact he might have killed himself!
Offered the little story above (which is a real account), we can’t stress enough that you need to ALWAYS look for some expert suggestions before taking on a task like this in your garden, no matter how minor it might seem.
