Bringing down a well-grown tree can become an equally dangerous and upward task. Well, I am in a good position to say this since I have had to cut down a 60-year-old eucalyptus tree in my homestead. I did not know where to start, but since I was not in a hurry, I decided to do a thorough research in an attempt to get a clear picture on exactly what I was supposed to do. Reading through books and archives on the internet I found the following tips that are very crucial to understand before starting to bring down a tree:
Experts stressed that the first step in cutting down a tree was getting the right equipment. So, what are these pieces of equipment? Let’s find out.
A chainsaw is perhaps the most paramount tool that is required. To make the process easy, a perfect chainsaw for the process should come with a 3.5 horsepower and a 20-inch bar. The length of the bar determines the blade’s depth of penetration.
Almost all my sources stressed the importance of the safety glasses. I began to imagine a ruthless debris flying right into my eyes.
Leg protectors like the knee-high safety boots are recommended to protect your feet from the tree branches and the chainsaw in the case of the worst.
Experts recommend a 1000 LB test rope that should be three times the length of your tree. After getting a clear picture of the tools I would require, I went ahead to study the different tree cutting techniques that were necessary for a safe operation.
What are these techniques?
ASSEMBLING ALL THE TOOLS
All the instruments to be used should be tested to see they are in the right condition. The tools like the chainsaw should be prepared by oiling and sharpening.
ASSESSING THE RISKS OF CUTTING DOWN THE TREE
One should analyze the probability of the tree falling on and destroying other pieces of equipment.
This will help you avoid the tree falling on your house or your fence. Remove all household tools from the area the tree is most likely to fall.
UNDERSTANDING THE STRUCTURE OF THE TREE
Based on the height, you will be in a position to decide the proper direction for the tree to fall.
CUTTING DOWN THE TREE
It is advisable to have someone helping you in this process.
