Choosing the licensed and certified arborist to do a tree service is a challenge because not all arborists in your area are qualified enough for the tree care jobs.  An experienced arborist is someone who had years of experience in doing the craft.

Tree removal is a more extensive and dangerous process than tree pruning, wherein you only cut and take off the branches or parts which are weak. Since tree removal is dangerous, arborist uses tools and machines to do the job.  Without these tools, tree removal will not be successful.

  The first tool axes. Axes are the oldest tools in cutting and removing trees. Axes have the ability to cut trees because it is sharp and very handy. It has a handle in which anyone can grip it easily. The axes that are used to cutting down trees are double-sided axes.  While pick axes help to re-root trees.


  The second tool is crosscut saws.  Crosscut saws need to be maneuvered by two people. You must choose the right crosscut saw that fits the size and diameter of the tree you are to cut.

The third tool is chainsaws. It is considered to be the most powerful tool in tree removal.  Chainsaws have sharp edges that go around a chain. It operates with the use of electricity and gas. For big trees, a gas-powered chainsaw is required and is the most accurate tool to use.  You must be extra careful in using chainsaws because it is an extremely dangerous tool. In using chainsaws, you must wear the complete safety gear to avoid accidents and cuts.

The last tool is stump grinders. When you had removed a tree, the next part to remove is its stump. It is a very tedious work to do because the tree roots run deep down the soil, and only a stump grinder can do the job perfectly. If your tree is small, you can use a self-propelled grinder but if your tree is large and huge, you might as well use a tow-behind grinder.


 Despite having all of these tools, there are still problems going to arise during your tree removal process. You must expect challenges while doing the process since not all trees are the same, that is why it is encouraged that you never do tree removal on your own because there are skilled professionals who are trained to do that kind of tedious and dangerous work. All you have to do is to search for arborists available in your area and afterward check on their reputation and professionalism. You must research further about your chosen arborist so you can get the tree service you wanted and make sure that your chosen arborists will meet your expectations.
