If you’ve never operated a chain saw, then you must obtain training. Cutting down trees is very dangerous. Even when a tree has fallen, it can have stored energy that can cause the tree to roll or move in such a way to cause the saw to bind or the tree to fall on you.

Chain saws used all day in the field require sharpening. If you use a handy special tool, you can field dress a chain in about ten minutes.

Ways of Clearing

There are many ways to do land clearing. The method used is often based on what happens to the trees and bushes that are being removed. It is always recommended to employee or hire an expert in tree removal and clearing, like Jacksonville Area Tree Removal, with a professional they will have the right equipment to clear your lot quickly, professionally, and safely.

Check your area to see if there are company’s that will take your trees and brush for free.

You may locate a contractor that will clear most of your small trees for free. If this happens, be prepared to deal with the left-over branches, that’s left behind.

Some land-clearing experts will push down the entire tree, and then move it over to a place on the land where it can be processed. This will leave you with trees suitable for lumber processing.

Not all trees need to be ground up or cut for firewood. At Jacksonville Area Tree removal we have machines that can grind up entire stumps and we also have clean up services..

Land clearing can be highly regulated in some areas because some may consider it to be a harmful process. Depending on your area, they may or may not allow you to burn the brush and limbs, while other areas might require you to grind and compost the trees and bushes.

Tree Machine Rentals

You often can rent medium-sized equipment that can do a somewhat decent job of clearing land. A powerful skid-steer loader can be rented that is able to move stumps that weigh over two tons. a tracked excavator backhoe can dig drainage trenches and remove stumps with ease.

Do you have the skills?

These types of mechanical equipment be very proficient for an experienced user. It can take hours or days for a beginner to learn how to get the most efficiency from these machines, so don’t expect to get lots of work done the first few times using rented land-clearing machinery.

If you decide to rent heavy mechanical equipment like this, you want to ask the rental company if they have a training facility where you can learn how to safely use the machines.

If you decide to cut down trees using a chain saw, avoid cutting down several trees that fall down upon one another. You could end up with a mess of limbs that make it hard to get in to remove the debris.

Safety First

When starting a land-clearing project try to recruit helpers. You will have some hand work to do with smaller tools and it can become cumbersome if you try to do this alone.

For safety reasons it is also a good idea to have others there for safety reasons. If someone gets hurt, you will have someone else who can give first aid or call for help.

Once you have cleared your land you will need to assess if erosion will be a problem. One way of holding the topsoil in place is to seed the ground with some sort of grass that will help with erosion. Talk with a local extension agent or government soil district employee who knows how to preserve this valuable natural resource.

To Your Trees Health

To Your Trees  Health – Rot or Damage- 

Your healthy tree’s trunk joins its leafy branches above with its growing roots base below. It’s what keeps it all together. If damage occurs to the trunk or it starts rotting it can effect the whole tree.

So what should you do if you have part of the tree trunk that gets damages or starts rotting?

It is not recommended to cut off and seal a rotting portion of a tree trunk. This can leave the tree vulnerable to more infections and could make the tree worse. Trees will try to heal the damaged area by sealing the area its self and will continue to grow.

Tree paint will not close wounds or prevent the spread of diseases. You could do more damage then good by using tree paint. Another misconception is trying to cut out the bad spot. Trying to cut out the problem will not solve the it because the issue is deeper than that. Trees rot because of a disease called wood decay, which usually targets old, large specimens and infects their wood from the inside out. It is almost impossible, to treat wood decay.

Rot could be a sign that your tree’s weak or unstable. You will want to call on a tree removal specialist to assess to see if it’s at risk of falling on your home. Keep your trees health.

Here are some options that your tree specialist may recommend:

* If the tree is mostly healthy and the decayed area is small, there’s a chance that it will seal itself over the rotting spot as it naturally grows new wood.

*Tree health care such as watering, fertilizing and pruning can do wonders to help extend the life of your tree. Just use cation if it is at risk of falling. Also, try to avoid any additional injury to the tree.

*If the tree trunk rot has weakened the tree to the point where it poses a risk to people or your home and property, you will want to have an experienced tree removal service take down the tree for safety.

Tree Maintenance Tips To Keep Your Trees Healthy and Strong

Find the right tree for the right area. Spots with enough sun and space that will allow your tree full growth capacity is ideal. Keep in mind before you dig where power-lines and underground utility’s are and do not plant to close to your home. Also, one of the biggest mistake made is planting the tree to deep.

  1. Properly water your trees! Do not rely on the rain to water your trees, check your trees regularly for moister and dryness. Typically an older tree will need one inch of water a week. Newer trees will need somewhere between 4 to 10 gallons each week during the first few growing seasons.
  2. Mulching adds not only beauty to your tree, but it also insulates the tree roots, protects the roots from lawn mower cuts and helps prevent dry soil. When you mulch your tree start by removing the grass and weeds around the tree and spread about two to four inches of mulch. Make sure not to cover the base of the trunk.
  3. Fertilizing is a way to add nutrients back into the soil to feed your tree. Use a slow-release fertilizer regularly to release nutrients into the soil. Also, test your soil occasionally to see if any elements are missing or low in supply.
  4. Proper trimming improves trees’ structure while also removing any deadwood holding them back. Major pruning should be done when the tree is dormant and doesn’t have any leaves. Then, in the summer, clean up and clear out small, dead or damaged branches.
  5. Make an appointment with a tree specialist for your tree. Spotting signs of pests or diseases early can make the difference. You want them to look for red flags like discolored leaves, cankers, holes, and more. They can provide you with a plan of action on how to help.

Proper care will ensure growth and a healthy tree. If your tree is beyond care and posses a safety threat it is always recommended that you hire a professional tree trimming or removal service to exam your tree, keep your trees health.
