Tree removal is a demanding job. It’s not a piece of cake to tear down a giant that has been growing for over 15 years and in some cases for well over a century. This is why I’d like to tell you that this one task is something you should leave to the pros, unless you are one of those pros. In this article, I would like to highlight the process of tree removal Bega and describe how professionals go about it.
Inspection and access
First up, after you place an order to a dedicated tree maintenance service organisation, they will send a team to inspect the condition of the tree and to decide whether their heavy-duty tree removal equipment can access the location- or if they will have to cut down the tree manually- that is by climbing the tree. After this process, they will provide you with a quotation and a fixed date for the removal of the tree.
Cutting the tree
On the day of the tree removal, the crew is divided into several teams; ground team, cutting team and clean up team. The crew works their way down from the topmost part of the tree, usually cutting each branch into small pieces of not more than a few feet. These small pieces of wood can be easily split and used for firewood, if you so desire.
Grinding the tree trunk
After removal of the minor branches, the portion that remains is a mid-sized trunk of the tree which can be cut and then grinded to a level that is virtually equal to the soil. If you like to leave the tree stump in order to decorate your garden perhaps with a plant, the crew can make that happen as well.
Once the cutting crew is done with the tree, the cleanup crew starts raking the area surrounding the tree until the garden looks identical to the situation it was in before the removal of the tree. You can decide whether to keep the spliced wood or to send it away with the crew.
The demanding nature of this job makes this a not-so-cheap service to pay for but a good team will provide far more value through their service. A few things to consider when calculating the cost is the tree size, tree location and tree species. Large trees require more labour and equipment to remove, thus making it more expensive. A tree near a house or power lines again require more labour and equipment in order to facilitate the precautionary measures taken, which in turn drives the price up. Tree species comes into play when considering the number of trunks and major branches that a tree possesses. More the limbs, the higher the cost. That is a quick roundup on how the tree removal process works. Hope this article gave you an idea of what you need to know before you try to remove any trees on your own!
