Thinking About DIY Tree Removal? 4 Reasons Why You Should Leave It To The Professionals

The average cost to remove a tree can cost $1,500 or more, depending on the location, height, and condition of the tree. While the cost is not exceptionally high, it might be more than you want to spend on a tree you don't want anymore. You can always remove the tree yourself. However, do-it-yourself tree removal projects are rife with danger. In 2012 alone, 47 DIY tree care accidents were reported; 25 of the victims died. Cutting down your own tree could very well be a deadly job. For this reason and more, you should leave it to the professionals. Following are four more reasons why you should:


Nearly 65 percent of the accidents mentioned above occurred when the victim was struck by the tree. While gravity is a reality for any tree, exceptionally tall trees pose greater hazards because they are more difficult to control. They're even harder for experts to handle. This is why the cost per foot for tree removal increases along with the height of the tree. 


Professional removers are required to use safety equipment, including safety harnesses, and to wear protective clothing on all parts of their body. They also use a wide variety of well-maintained tools to do their job. Chances are that you don't have all of the safety equipment or practical equipment that you need. Practical equipment includes a crane, wood chipper, and chain saw. To rent the necessary equipment would cost more than hiring someone. 


Hazards are everywhere. Nearby power lines are among the most dangerous. If you don't know how to fell a tree properly and make sure it remains on it's planned descent, it could end up taking down power lines or it could come crashing down on your roof. If the former happens, electrocution is a real possibility. You may also wipe out the power in your neighborhood, which will result in a fine. 


Professional tree removers are fully insured to cover any costs. If something were to go wrong, you wouldn't be out any money. However, if you cause damage, you will have to file a claim against your own insurance. In addition to paying your deductible, you may have to pay higher insurance rates in the future. 

As you can see, there are several reasons why you should leave tree removal to the professionals. If you're planning a DIY tree removal project, maybe you should give it some more thought before you proceed.
