DISPOSE OF BULKY TREE IN YOUR GARDEN

If the tree dimension is beyond 30 cm in diameter, it is necessary to call a professional.

We do not use the same technique to get rid of a bulky tree, depending on its size and location. Claude Benoît, Director of the company Bro-Leon Pruning helps us to see more clearly.

How to get rid of a small tree?

To a tree up to 10 cm in diameter, one can use a saw. Japanese saws with teeth, in particular, that cut when pulled, are very effective. We then cut larger branches with pruning shears force, and possibly small branches with a small pruning shears.

And a bulky tree of average size?

For a tree to 30 cm in diameter, you may kill yourself if you do not have enough space for the tree to fall. In this case, using a chainsaw (1), a notch is made in a triangle than a quarter of the trunk diameter. It is this cut which gives the direction of fall. Then we made a cut line on the other side of the trunk, leaving a “hinge”, which is a strip of wood on which the tree takes its direction of fall.

And a bulky large tree?

Beyond 30 cm in diameter or in the case of a tree cannot fall in one piece, you have to appeal to a specialized company: either a pruning society, a landscape company with a specialty of pruning, with, in both cases, a minimum of two arborists climbers. And avoid use simple gardeners or other trades companies that do this occasionally.

How professional proceed to cut a cumbersome large tree?

They proceed by dismantling. The arborist technician climbs to the top of the tree by means of ropes. They cut all the branches then ridge trunks from top to bottom. Otherwise, they proceed by dismantling with retention, that is to say, now all the pieces of wood are taken down gently in a particular place. As for the strain, it is removed by using a strain of trimming, which converts it into chips and down to 70 cm deep, allowing replant immediately behind.

What are the safety rules for cutting a bulky tree?

Already, an individual must assess risks before making this work yourself because accidents can happen. If you feel able to handle a saw or chainsaw, you need to dress in a cut-proof safety pants, leather gloves, safety shoes, safety glasses, ear protectors and possibly headphones. Professionals must have an individual protective equipment, ropes, harnesses, carabineers, etc which are approved.

What happens to remains of a bulky tree after they have been cut?

An individual can make fagots with branches for barbecue or fireplace. You can cut the trunk to make firewood. Possibly, if it is not white wood, you can keep a trunk up to climb above plants to secure the cabin for children, to install a bird feeder or to serve as a table leg of your garden. One can also grind the small branches using a grinder. Professionals, meanwhile, grind the remains to make mulch for bedding. Well-milled wood can also be used on site or be sold to other individuals or companies. Wood chips can also be sent in the wood energy sector to supply large boilers.
