Whether it’s blocking your view, is diseased or damaged, or is taking up space you’d rather use for something else.
Felling a tree is never a task to be undertaken lightly.
This is one project that can have major consequences if not done properly.
Including damage to your home and surrounding property or serious injury to you or bystanders.
Also, be aware that, in some areas, you’ll need a permit before cutting down a tree.
Even if the tree you’re felling isn’t exceptionally large.
Don’t take the risk of foregoing safety gear.
While chances are you won’t have any problems, safety should always be the top priority.
You should wear:
- Closed, sturdy shoes or boots
- Pants and a long-sleeved shirt
- Logger or hard hat
- Goggles that fully cover your eyes
- Ear protection—plugs or earmuffs designed to reduce sound
- Work gloves
