Learn How To Have Tree Limbs Safely Removed From Your Trees

Posted on: 4 March 2015

Having a beautifully manicured yard often starts with the trees. There are many people who do not realize how much of an impact the trees they have in their yard make on the overall look of the landscape. If you have large trees, they could be blocking your flowers and shrubs from getting the proper amount of sunlight they need to thrive, you may need to have the limbs trimmed.

The following guide will help you learn how a tree removal company can help prune some of the branches of your trees to improve the overall look of your yard.

Determine the Situation

The tree removal specialist may come to your home a few different times to look at your yard. The specialist will be looking at your trees to determine where they cast shadows at different times of day. There are some limbs that will only block plants from sunlight a few hours of the day and some that will constantly block the sunlight. The limbs that consistently block the sunlight are the ones that will be removed.

Quote You a Price

The tree removal specialist will quote you a price for the pruning next. The price will include all of the materials they need to remove the tree limbs, their time to remove the limbs, and the hauling for having the limbs hauled away once they are cut down from the trees.

Prepare to Remove the Limbs

Next, the remover will set up all of the equipment he or she needs to be able to remove the limbs from your trees. Some of the limbs may be very high in the trees and the remover has a special harness that wraps around the tree and secures him or her to it so that they do not have to worry about falling as they cut down the limbs. There will also be lines in place to allow the remover to safely guide the limbs down the tree once they cut them.

Cut Down the Limbs

Next, the remover will finally start cutting down the limbs. The remover will tie the guide line to the limb before cutting it and then once the limb is cut, it will hang from the tree. The remover will guide the limb down the tree with the rope until it gently hits the ground. This ensures that none of your property is damaged as the limbs are removed.

Removing tree limbs from a tree can take some time if it is done correctly. You do not want to risk the remover or your property by rushing the process. Be patient and give the remover the space that he or she needs to do the job the right way.
