When you think of a tree, your first impression might be it is probably a beautiful, massive specimen. In fact, if you look close enough, you can see the leaves turning red as the tree blooms. But what do you actually do with a massive tree? One way to keep it company is by cutting it down—and this is easier said than done. Sitting in your driveway wondering how to get the job done around your massive green monster will make you feel like an old hag who just needs some help. So here’s how to cut a tree in Evansville that’s really worth saving:
Get To Know Your Tree
The first thing to know about trees is that they don’t like to be crowded. That’s where the cutaway part comes into play. An oak tree will usually love to be in a large room with other nearby trees, but a sumac will thrive in a small space. Avoid Botanic gardens, because those places are too full of trees. Choose a location that is free of other trees and plants, and take your time while you figure out what you’re cuting down. After all, you don’t know how a tree will respond to your presence until you’ve got it ‘over’.
Narrow Down The Trunk
The second thing to know about trees is that they are very social. When they are happy, they are very happy. When they aren’t happy, they are often sad, lonely, or even afraid. It is the best way to go about your task and make the most of the time you have with the tree. This means you need to be very selective about which parts of the tree you are going to cut. If you always decide to go with the most obvious branch, you won’t get the full result you want.
Build A Debt To Be Paid
When you live in a house and you decide you need to buy a new room or two, you will probably feel resentment towards the drawing room, where you are always sitting. The decluttering and organizer people know this, and they have discussed how to tackle this problem, but we have yet to see what a second bathroom needs. Luckily, we don’t have to worry about paying this debt up front. If you decide to do this, however, you should plan to add a shower and a toilet soon, because your new bathroom will definitely need some space.
Define The Task At Hand
The next thing you need to know about trees is that they are both unique and dangerous. While they have a common ancestor that lived over a millennia ago, they have several different species that live in different areas of the world. This means it is important to know what your task is and where you are going to start. The first step is to decide what specific parts of the tree you want to cut. By adding this information to a spreadsheet, you can then create a list of what parts you want to cut, and a budget for the job. Next, you need to come up with a plan. If all of this planning is a little overwhelming, you can always start by writing a ‘tree plan’, which is always a good idea. This will give you a visual representation of what will go where, and you can start brainstorming ideas.
Identify The Work Area
Now that you have your list of parts to cut, the next thing you need to do is identify the work area. This will give you a much-needed break from the beauty of your giant green beauty. While you may not mind the idea of a large space, the fact remains that you are going to spend the majority of your time in this room. To cut down on the amount of space you take up, it is best to keep everything together, but separate. For example, if you have a grape tree in the front room, and a poplar in the back, it is likely that you will want those separate from one another. To separate the items you will use for each, you can either hammer down the bottom of the grape tree and poplar, or drive a chisel through the bottom of the grape and poplar. If you’re going with the latter, you’ll have a much easier time getting the job done.
Determine How Much You’ll Need To Do It, And What It Will Cost
Once you know what parts of the tree you want to cut, you need to decide how much you’re going to do it. The cheaper the task, the more you will profit from it. If you decide you want to do an entire tree in one day, then that is usually not a good idea. On the other hand, if you decide you want to do one tree at a time, then this is usually a good idea. The money you make from each tree will be much more than if you do it in one go. This is because you will be saving money by not taking up as much space. You will also be saving time, as you will be cutting down more trees as you go. So there is no way you will be taking up more space than you need.
Wrapping Up – Have Fun!
Congratulations! You have cut down your tree and are now ready to decorate it with fresh leaves and branches. However, before you do anything else, you need to put some space between the trees you already have and the new ones you will build. It is also important to organize your deck so you can get the most use out of the space you have. Now that you have the skills you need to cut down a tree, it is time to find a tree plan that is both creative and realistic. If you decide you need to do the job in a day, then you can always start practicing on other trees in your backyard. If you decide you want to do the job in two or three days, then you can always start by setting up an early birds club. And if you want a more serious project, then maybe a task like pruning a rose can wait.
