Top 3 Palm Tree Removal Tips to Always Follow

Removing a palm tree can be quite daunting. But if you know the ways how to accomplish it, removing your dead palm will be a walk in the park. It’s not to say you will have a fun time while doing it. Palm tree felling is still a time-consuming task that requires a lot of patience. But if you’re serious about saving money by not hiring professional services, then read on as we’re about to show you the top three ways on how to perform palm tree cutting by yourself.


Hiring Professional Arborists


Okay, so we lied about not having to hire professional services. But hear us out first. Hiring professionals to cut your palm tree isn’t all bad. If any, it can save you time and money – especially if you have zero knowledge about palm tree felling. Think of it this way. You have no idea what you’re doing. That means you’ll waste more time and spend more money than you should since you’ll have to compensate for your mistakes.


By hiring professional palm removal services, you won’t have to worry about anything. Professionals will get the job done for you, and all you have to do is wait for them to get the job done – which isn’t that long, to be honest – pay a reasonable service fee and you’re all done. So, as you can see, hiring professional services requires zero effort and less money spent.


Digging Up the Tree


Okay, now for an actual DIY method: digging. This requires precision and good decision making. Be cautious as it will need the tree trunk to free fall, which is why we only recommend this if you have a wide and open space where your tree will land. Start digging and ensure that you push the tree towards the area where it should fall. By digging to the tips of the roots, it will quickly fall in a matter of seconds. But keep in mind that this is a time-consuming task and will require a lot of effort for you to dig through the very bottom of your tree.


Cutting down the Tree



Finally, similar to the second one, it will require the trunk to free fall onto open space. You’ll need a sharp axe or a chainsaw to ensure that you get the job done fast. Start chopping down on the part of the tree that’s opposite to where it should collapse. That way, it will surely fall on that angle and make sure it doesn’t randomly crash onto your house or any outdoor structure.
