When should you remove a tree?

If a dead tree poses a possible danger to people, property and surroundings.

If the tree is close to your property. Is there a safe distance between the tree and other property? Can the tree cause any damage to the property or near infrastructure?

If there are too many trees in the area. Do other plants and trees have enough light, soil and space to grow? Is the tree negatively affecting surrounding plants?

If there is any obvious damage to the tree. Is it leaning? Are there any cracks or holes in the trunk? Is the wood strong? Are the branches falling and decaying? Does the root system show signs of damage and decay?

Should you try to remove the tree yourself?

Depending on the factors we have been talking about. Keep in mind that this is a dangerous, hazardous and professional job. Do you have equipment? What‘s the size of the tree? Is there any important infrastructure that you could damage?

When can you do it?

If the tree is less than 30 feet in height and 8 inches in diameter. If there are no other obstructions nearby. If you’re comfortable and skilled with the tools. In late winter or early spring when the tree growth is slowed and there are no fewer leaves on the tree.

How to remove a small tree

Water your tree the day before to soften the soil for easier digging.

Gather your safety equipment. Your health is the most important thing. Protect yourself with a helmet, safety goggles, respirator, hearing protection, steel toe boots, gloves and clothing to prevent cuts.

Clear the area and make people aware of your project. Make the surrounding environment safe for everybody.

Determine the intended and possible unintended direction for the tree fall. You will be chopping down the tree accordingly. Plan and clear your escape routes opposites of the desired tree fall direction.

Make an angled cut into the side of three. Make a 70 degree cut facing the direction where the tree will be falling. Cut approximately 1/4th of the tree diameter.

Start cutting from the other side. Make a horizontal and flat cut from the opposite direction to keep the fall even and predictable. Stop cutting when you have around 1/10th of the diameter left.

Leave your hinge, pull away from your saw or axe and take your primary escape route. If the tree is falling in your direction, take the secondary escape route.

Dig 6 feet deep for every inch of tree trunk width. Reach the entire root system and dig around the roots. Cut the root ball into smaller pieces and remove it.
