Trees are an important part to your health. Specifically, the oxygen they create. It is always a good idea to spend some time outside and breath in the fresh air. Fresh air can do wonders for your health if you have been cooped up inside all day. Plus, vitamin D from the sunshine is good for you too.

However, sometimes it is necessary to remove an old tree that is rotting and is just a little too close to your house. You don’t want it to fall and cause damage or even injure someone. However, tree removal itself can be very dangerous as well. One wrong move could result in injury to you or damage to your property. In this video, you will learn how to stay safe while removing a tree.

The big thing to remember when cutting a tree is to have a plan of escape. You should make sure to clear any nearby obstacles so that you don’t trip on them. You will also make sure you make the right size notch. Too big or too little is likely to cause issues getting the tree to fall where you want. You can use ropes to help guide the fall, but you must be careful to not pull the tree down on yourself.
