Do you have a clump of trees in your yard that block the sun, obstruct your view, or fill the yard with mountains of leaves each fall? Perhaps you have one or more trees that have simply grown so large that they have become unstable or unsafe. If so, you may have considered getting rid of them, but how would you go about it?
You may feel capable of doing the job yourself, sawing a lumberjack-style wedge out of the bottom of the tree trunk and watching it fall to the ground while resisting the urge to yell “Wood!”
While you may very well be able to do all of that (and it would surely be a lot of fun!), there are a number of safety considerations, not to mention legal ones, that simply can’t be ignored.
For example, it is important to consider not only your own safety, but also the safety of nearby people and animals. Because it is very difficult to predict the direction in which a tree will fall using the traditional felling method, the safety of nearby humans can never be guaranteed.
Then there is the risk to nearby property. Trees are often much longer than they appear upright and therefore would fall over a larger area than would be expected, making it highly likely that a nearby house or garage/shed would be affected. impact of the colossal tree you are knocking down.
There are also legal and social issues to consider, such as boundary issues, the community’s attachment to “heritage trees”, ownership of the property, issues arising from roots crossing property boundaries, and disputes over view obstructions, to name a few.
