You may have seen the countless videos out there of hapless homeowners who’ve decided to do their own tree removal and ended up with it all going horribly wrong. Funny stuff! Until it happens to you.
The dangers of DIY tree removal are all too real, and we see it far too often. Attempting to remove a tree without the requisite skill and experience can result in serious injury or even death. Not to mention cause major damage to your home and property.
Dangers To Look Out For
There are so many things that can very quickly go wrong when trying to remove a tree yourself. You or your house could be struck by the tree itself if it doesn’t go in the direction you thought it would (which is very common). A branch could fall and hit you if you’re not using the appropriate ropes, harnesses and safety gear to access the tree. You could also fall from a ladder or the tree itself – the dangers go on and on. There’s also the potential of damaging your neighbour’s house or property and hitting power lines or other services.
Something you may not even consider is the issue of what exactly you’re going to do with the enormous amount of green waste and debris you’ll be left with if you do manage to take the tree down, as well as the stump that will be left in your backyard.
Why Seek Professional Help?
What we’ve hopefully outlined is that whilst it may look deceptively easy – it’s not! Safely removing a tree requires skill, knowledge, years of experience, the right tools and equipment, and not to mention – insurance.
In most situations, the best thing you can do is to call your local Brisbane Arborist to remove your tree. A good Arborist will be able to assess your tree, come up with the best course of action, and safely and efficiently remove the tree without ever putting you or your home in danger. So why take the risk? Don’t become a statistic. Back away from that saw and call the professionals.
