Tree removal companies will either use mechanical equipment to remove a tree or a simple approach involving a backhoe. Mechanical tree removal methods include de-burring, tearing up, and slicing.
De-burring is when the tree is dug up, the bark removed and then the roots are also cut away. The topmost part of the stump is left where it is typically on the ground. This method has a lot of risk, as well as a chance of destroying the rest of the tree.
Slicing is used when a tree is too large to get a car to get in and out of it. A bulldozer can be used to remove the tree from its foundation.
There are several disadvantages with these two mechanical methods of tree removal. De-burring and ripping up takes more time and can cause more damage to the rest of the tree if it is in good shape. The root system is also usually damaged by these methods.
With the methods of removing a tree that are less damaging, many more types of materials can be used on the tree, like wood chips and mulch that can be spread on the ground. The former two can help spread out soil that may have been compacted, increasing the amount of air around the tree.
Another advantage of these mechanical tree removal methods is that they can be used on many different types of trees. There are no specific methods for getting rid of a maple tree, but you could make sure that the roots are on the ground and any needles are not completely detached. If there is a large amount of foliage, the removal can be easier.
On the other hand, getting roots of a maple tree off the ground will also require a lot of maintenance. If the roots are heavily covered, it can be difficult to remove the whole tree since the roots are more developed.
A clear cut area can be made where the tree will be removed from. Sometimes this will be enough to get rid of the tree, but it does not always have to be done that way.
Many times a tree is cut off the ground due to a fire hazard. When that happens, the removal process is harder to do.
When removing a tree from a foundation, it is very important to have a bucket of water nearby in case the tree lands on the ground. It can be difficult to see a fallen tree on the ground, so the first step is to make sure there is a bucket of water in front of the tree.
It is important to have a ladder near the ladder is handy because a tree falling off a high spot can be difficult to see. As soon as the tree begins to fall, grab the ladder and call for help.
It is even important to be careful when working near a structure since it can help keep a person safe when in a certain area. It can help people know that the area is safe when one can get to a particular tree without having to climb a ladder.
