While buying a new house or moving into a new property we love to have some greenery around us and we go overboard and plant some nice shady trees, fruit trees, and beautiful blossoms too. We plant all these with these with the intention of beautifying the house and to get a beautiful view.
After a couple of years, the trees grow bigger and bigger and soon start blocking the view of the house. Apart from blocking the view they may also block light coming into the house and make the interiors look dull and dingy. Even though nobody likes to cut down trees a little bit of trimming becomes absolutely unavoidable.
If you need to cut down trees to clear the blocked view and the light it can be done easily yourself with the help of a couple of simple tools and adequate safety gear. If the branches are not too big and can be easily managed then here is a list of things that will definitely help get done safely and easily-
• Safety Gear
-Wearing proper safety gear like a logger’s helmet will keep you safe from falling branches.
-A pair of safety eyeglasses to protect from splinters and dust.
– A face screen to protect other delicate areas of the face
– Ear muffs to keep sounds and other irritants to the ears at bay.
• Tree cutting Tools
-Felling Wedges will help your cutting saw from getting pinched during the process of cutting.
-A cutting chain saw
Once you are equipped with the right gear and equipment, plan how exact you are going to chop the branches or any other part of the tree. It is also advisable to have an experienced assistant to help in the cutting process.
Also make it a point to take into consideration, nearby houses, fences, electrical poles, wires and other things that might get damaged when you fell your tree. Plan properly and cut safely.
