Don't put yourself or others at risk. Call Surrey Green Arborists to deal with dangerous tree removal in Surrey.
Overall, performing tasks like tree removal can be dangerous. However, trying to deal with a tree of extraordinary height or one near power lines should be left to a professional tree care company. The art of successfully felling a tree is not something that should be taken lightly. It takes knowledge, know-how and the right tools to get the job done. For the average homeowner, tree removal or felling can result in serious injury or damage to surroundings.
What are some common risks associated with dangerous tree removal:
Power lines: If your tree or shrub is located near power lines, they definitely pose a risk. Always assume that those are live power lines! Coming into contact with power lines could possibly leave you and your neighbors without power. Worse yet, electrocution may occur. That coating on the electrical lines does not protect you against electrocution. It’s just a means of weatherproofing. Do yourself a favor: if you have trees near power lines, call a Surrey arborist to assess and deal with the situation.
Improper equipment: All employees of a reputable tree care company are required to wear protective gear (head to toe). Also, their professional staff should be properly trained to use high powered equipment such as wood chippers, chain saws and cranes. The typical homeowner does not have the proper knowledge or equipment and are willingly exposing themselves to harm as well as others to harm.
Decaying wood and trees: This is a dangerous situation. When a tree is diseased, dead or dying, it becomes unstable. Unsure as to if you're in this situation? If you think that there is a decaying tree on your property, contact a professional arborist to assess and remove it before it collapses. Only a trained Surreytree company and arborist will be able to understand the decaying tree and the biological processes it's going through.
Gravity: America's Funniest Home Video's never really tells or shows you what happened AFTER the "hilarious" video happens. Sure, it's fun (and funny) to watch videos where the homeowners attempt at tree trimming results in the total destruction of the neighbors fence or car but honestly, there's nothing really funny at all about putting life and property at risk. Gravity is working against you and your tree once it starts to fall and you will have little to no control over where it ends up. Lack of experience and poor judgment will cause dangerous tree removal to become a nightmare.
