DIY vs. Professional Tree Lopping

DIY vs. Professional Tree Lopping

If you have a tree or two that needs to be removed from your property, you may be tempted to take on the job yourself. After all, how hard can it be?

Well, pretty difficult.

Safe and effective tree lopping requires skills, expertise, and safety knowledge that come from years of professional experience. Plus, without the correct equipment, you are putting yourself and your property at risk.

Let’s now compare DIY (do it yourself) and professional tree lopping so you can make an informed decision.

DIY Tree Lopping: Risks

Tree lopping is a more technical process than you might think. What’s more, rushed or improper tree removal can cause serious damage to your property and even yourself. Here are a few of the risks involved with DIY tree lopping.

DIY tree lopping can cost more

The number one reason people opt to DIY rather than hire professional tree loppers is to save money. Unfortunately, DIY is rarely the cheaper option, and here are a couple of reasons why:

  • Tree lopping requires specialised equipment, and renting it can be costly.
  • Tree lopping requires expert knowledge. Without the necessary know-how, you could end up making mistakes that cost hundreds, if not thousands, to repair.
  • Tree lopping takes time, especially if you are inexperienced.

Effective tree lopping requires experience and expertise

Your mechanic does a far better job at fixing your car than you could, right? The same goes for tree lopping. Despite what you might think, a lot of skill goes into perfectly-executed tree lopping. For example, we know exactly how to calculate which way a tree will fall, and this knowledge helps us keep everyone safe.

DIY tree lopping is dangerous

Whether you need to remove an entire tree or just a couple of branches, attempting DIY tree lopping can be seriously dangerous. Firstly, the tree or tree branches are going to fall. You will need to predict where, and ensure the area is cleared.

Secondly, many tree lopping jobs require the use of guide ropes and harnesses to climb trees. If you don’t have experience with these, you may not gear up properly. If you fall, well… you will hurt yourself.

Finally, working with a chainsaw is serious business on the ground. Now imagine using one balancing on a tree or ladder. It isn’t easy, especially if you’ve never done it before!
