Just like humans trees do not live forever. When a tree dies it is time to cut it down or before it falls down on its own and injure someone or destroy your house. Felling a tree is a simple thing but also not an easy thing to do. Today most houses and gardens are not very big so the chance of you felling a tree is impossible when you don’t have enough space for the tree to fall down. When you are a face with such a dilemma, one solution is to take down the tree part by part. Let us run through the process of taking down a tree part by part.
First things first, you need to analyze your space and the tree. You need to check if you would need special equipment to climb the tree. If the tree is strong will you be able to stand on the branches to cut the tree down. Can you lean a ladder against the tree? Once you figure out everything you can start with getting the equipment and gear ready for your project of cutting the tree down.
Well you need really good saws and tools to cut off the branches and the trunk. Ask the help of a local hardware store and find out what they have that could take down the tree unless you already have the tools with you. I would recommend that you search for a scissor lift or a boom lift for hire so that you can go up that tree without any trouble. If don’t want to use the machines to climb you will have a hard time climbing the tree and placing the ladder on the tree. Climbing the tree itself is difficult and dangerous you might as well get a professional to bring down the tree.
You will need to first take down the smaller branches of the tree out. You can start from the bottom and then use the lift from the machine for the upper branches. Start with the smaller branches and move in to the bigger ones. Cut out the braches one by one until you have only the trunk to deal with.
Once you have only the trunk to deal with clear out the foot of the tree of anything that you may not want to break. According the amount of free space you have around your tree. Determine the size of each part of the tree that you can cut and make it fall down. Slowly cut part by part till completely finish the tree off. That is how basically cut down a tree part by part.
