We mentioned earlier that there are ways to remove trees yourself, and that in some cases, it is a viable course of action. There is, however, something to be said about leaving it to the professionals. Something about human nature persuades us to do it ourselves, that we believe that we are capable of doing everything ourselves with just a little bit of help and instruction.
However, as professionals there is something that people do not understand, and that is that experience and professionalism goes a long way. Sure, there are millions of ways to take down a tree, but there is a lot more to it than taking a chainsaw to it and screaming “timber”. One must think carefully about their surroundings and safety, which a lot of people do not.
A matter of experience
This is really where experience comes in. There is no way to tell exactly where a tree is going to fall, and even with the highest tech equipment available, things could actually go wrong. The difference between the average person and the tree removal company is often a matter of not only experience, but legal liability.
Most people do not have insurance that protects them and neighbors should something go wrong such as a tree falling on a house. Perhaps the main reason to leave it to the pros is not because it is that difficult to cut down a tree, but rather to protect the person or the persons of any damage once that tree has been cut down.
