If you have a tree on your property that you need to remove because it is dead or you plan to construct a structure where the tree is located, you may feel that it would be easier and cheaper to remove the tree yourself. But as experts in tree removal in Northern Beaches, we are here to tell you that you should not attempt DIY tree removal unless you have training and experience ‒ especially if you are dealing with a large tree.

Let’s look at some of the reasons why it is far better to call in an expert when it comes to removing trees from your property.

Decaying Wood Is Unstable

When removing a dead tree, you are more often than not dealing with decaying wood, which can be very unstable and unpredictable to work with.

Tree Removal Requires Specific Tools

Tree removal requires very specific tools to get the job done effectively. A professional arborist will have all of the necessary tools and be well-versed in them. If you need to buy these tools, it can get quite expensive, and if you are not familiar with these tools, you could injure yourself.

It Is Easy To Miscalculate Where The Tree Will Fall

Calculating where a tree will fall is very difficult. A miscalculation can result in the tree falling onto your property, vehicle, or even another person. A professional will know which factors to take into consideration to make a precise calculation.

Working At Heights Is Very Dangerous

Professional tree removers are used to working at heights and working against their centre of gravity, but you may not be. Taking a tumble from a great height can result in injury and even death, so be aware of the risks!

Working Near Power Lines

When removing trees, you may be working near power lines that will pose yet another danger to this already precarious task for the inexperienced.
