The Dangers of Taking a Tree Down Without a Tree Surgeon

There's a reason tree surgery is not a DIY project! The occupation falls well within the trade industry as it relies on great experience and expertise to perform such services and challenges. We sometimes consider removing a tree as a Sunday job that'll be hassle free and straightforward; however that's not the case and the technicalities involved are beyond our understanding! The procedures involved in Tree Surgery include the machinery that we might not know how to operate and the protective clothing for health and safety.

To illustrate exactly why you should put down the gardening tools and pick up the phone to give a professional tree surgeon a call; we've compiled a few reasons as to why this is the best option for you and your garden. 

No Protective Clothing 

One of the dangers of DIY Tree surgery is of course, not having the appropriate protective clothing. Whether comfortable of not, protective clothing is advised for a reason; and with operate powerful and dangerous equipment, it's obvious why. You'll be surprised how much protective equipment is involved in undertaking tree surgery tasks. To give you an idea; professional tree surgeons should wear hard hats, face visor and eye protection, ear defenders, dust masks, hi-vis jackets and t-shirts, chainsaw protective gloves and general and general purpose gloves; and finally, believe it or not, the UK recommends that workers have a whistle to call for help when injured and a mobile phone to call emergency services - That's how dangerous tree surgery can be!  

Having a DIY Mentality 

We sometimes overestimate how well we can undertake tasks ourselves; especially when they involve a level of experience and knowledge. Sometimes DIY is a great option and can be a very fulfilling project, however that doesn't always apply. Tree Surgery involves much more than simply cutting down a tree. There's a range of tasks and challenges - including; tree felling, removal, grinding and hedge cutting. All these require the appropriate tools to perform theses tasks and the procedures involved require the know-how.
