If you're a landowner or a commercial contractor who needs to uproot, remove, and transport many large trees on your property, you may wonder if it's even possible to do all three things right away. Large trees can be potentially dangerous if you use the wrong methods to remove and transport them, especially severely compromised trees. Learn how you can take care of your large trees the right way below.

Assess Everything in the Area

If your trees stand on a large area of land or property, you might not worry about harming other people, buildings, or animals when you remove your trees. But if homes, businesses, and other things do reside close to your land or property, you want to take every precaution necessary to prevent accidents. Trees damaged by disease, tornadoes, and insects can topple unexpectedly and injure bystanders and buildings. 

You also must consider other things before felling your trees, including:

  • using the correct cutting equipment
  • obtaining the proper tree removal permits from your municipality, city, or state
  • marking your escape routes
  • locating every possible electrical line in the area

After you devise a plan to cut down your trees, find a way to remove them.

Use a Crane

Trees of any size can be difficult to lift and transport properly without the right equipment on hand. In this case, you want to use an outside source to help you complete your project. One of the services you should consider is crane truck assistance. 

Cranes are often used to navigate exceptionally high places, such as those found in construction settings. Cranes may also help remove heavy loads, such as concrete and metal. However, you can utilize cranes to remove and transport trees. A tree contractor who uses cranes can assist you.

A service provider may need to reassess the removal site before they utilize their cranes. The site must be safe enough to lift and load your trees on other equipment, such as transport trucks and grinders. If a provider encounters a problem with your site, they may provide a new way to accomplish your goals.

You may need to consider how long you wish to use cranes during your project. If you have a tight deadline to meet, tell a contractor as soon as possible. A contractor may be able to accommodate your deadline in a way that fits your needs.
