Having Your First Tree Removed? How The Process Works

Same Peterson

If you are having a tree removed in your yard and have never had this done before, you may be wondering what is going to happen. If so, keep reading so you know how the process works, so you will be ready.

Clear Out

The first thing a tree removal company will do is to clear out the area around the perimeter of the tree so there is enough room for limbs to drop. You do not want anything close to the tree, as there could be damage to your belongings. This may include outdoor furniture or toys your children play with. The tree removal company can help you do this, or you can do this before they arrive to save time.

The area should be wide enough for the tree you are removing to lay completely flat when it falls to the ground. The tree removal company can help you determine the amount of space they will need, which will depend on how tall the tree is. 

Inspect the Tree

The tree removal company will inspect the tree closely. This is because large branches can make a tree fall a certain way. For example, if the tree is not uniform and there are very large branches on one side, the tree will likely fall in that direction.

If the tree is diseased, dead branches will likely fall straight to the ground, which can make the tree lighter. This will be taken into consideration as to where the tree will fall. If the tree is very diseased, it may collapse as soon as the tree removal company starts working on the tree.

Cut Down the Tree

The tree removal company will now cut down your tree. They will use a powerful chainsaw in order to do this. If the tree is very tall, they can bring in a truck that has a lift to lift the contractor to the right height. They will start by cutting branches and then cut the trunk of the tree until it falls. 

When finished, you will be left with a stump. If you do not want this stump left in your yard, the tree removal company can grind it down to completely remove it. Once finished, you need to plant grass over the area. When doing this, make sure you plant the same type of grass that your yard has.
