Common Tree Removal Mistakes and How to Avoid Them
Do you have a tree or trees in your garden that need either pruning or straight tree removal? If so, both of these can be difficult if you are not familiar with how to properly do it. There are certain things you need to bear in mind when trimming or removing trees. Keep reading to learn more about the pruning and tree removal mistakes people often make, and how you can avoid them.
Pruning At the Wrong Time
If the tree in your yard is starting to look somewhat unloved, then it’s time to give it a trim. Before you get started, you need to double-check that it is the right time for you to prune or trim it back. If you trim the branches prematurely you may remove the buds that are on the branches that will help the tree grow next season.
The best time to prune a tree is in the early spring before the buds come out, or in the fall when they have bloomed. Also, only trim the shoots and not the actual collar of the tree. This can leave it open for disease or insect infestations.
Not Being Familiar with How to Remove a Tree
One of the worst mistakes people make when removing a tree is going into the process without knowing exactly what needs to be done. You may have seen a few videos or read a tutorial on how to do this, however, that can be difficult when applying it to a practical situation.
When getting ready to remove a tree, make sure you are fully aware of the roots or rocks that surround the tree. Pay attention to your footing when using a chainsaw, as it only takes one slip or distraction for an accident to happen.
