Most homeowners want to save money and taking pride in doing the projects that they can do themselves. Tree trimming and pruning are some of the task that might seem easy but the possible risk that will involve in doing this project is far greater compared to other home improvement projects.

This is because most homeowners don’t have the proper tools and the knowledge in addition to the experience that is necessary in doing the tree work in their own in a safe way. There are many homeowners who are killed if nor severely injured while attempting this dangerous task that is often misunderstood, working in their own.

Consider these top reasons why you should leave tree projects to professional arborist.

Arborist have proper training and knowledge

In order to have enough knowledge that will allow you to remove a large tree safely, it will require years of study and experience to learn fully the physics and biology of a tree. Tree removal is more complicated than you think. It is not just bringing a chainsaw and yell “timber!”. You must first establish a drop zone and also make a proper cut and more often to guide the tree safely. Most of the accidents happen when the tree falls in an unexpected direction.

Arborist are trained to recognize these problems like rotten trunks and rotten limbs, the different kinds of pest and infections that is caused by fungus and other diseases that a common homeowner don’t usually know. To detect these tree problems will enable you to save the tree and to avoid accidents involving the tree later.

One of the unexpected risks is also caused by up-ended root ball. This happens when the tree is down and the trunk is severing from the up-ended root that releases tension strong enough in pulling the stump and the roots back to the hole and will trap anything nearby underneath it so never does the tree or stump removal on your own.

Proper tools

A homeowner may own a chainsaw but might not have a proper training or experience in using and doing the proper care for it. Most homeowners use a dull chainsaw and they don’t know it because they lack knowledge. Using dull chainsaw will cause you to exert more pressure that might result to lose control of the chainsaw. Another mistake often done by an average homeowner is using the chainsaw in cutting branches that is already on the ground. This could result to injuries if the chainsaw kicks back when the saw will hit something on the ground.

Unrecognized hazards

Having on the field most of the time enables them to know and recognize potential risk that the average homeowner doesn’t know.  A professional tree care service can find a way to access on what is needed to be done if the tree is near the power line. Electrocution could result to fatal injury and even death in cases like this.

If you will attempt to do the tree removal by yourself, be sure to have someone with you and beware of the potential hazards, it is easier when you have extra set of eyes this is why trained professionals are working as a team.
