 Having the right gear when it comes to the task of tree removal is very important. Even if you think the tree is smaller compared to the trees you have handled before, you will need the basics that might seem too big for the tree you are concerned of. Having a ladder and, rope, chainsaw, axe and a wedge will ensure that the job is done safely.

4. Avoid the cutting using a ladder 

 Climbing the ladder alone already has its own risk, how much more when you are balancing and cutting a tree branch at the same time?

 Having the right gear is also very necessary when it comes to dangerous work. Moreover, using the right equipment also matters as much. Thick gloves are also very useful to avoid cutting yourself while wearing a goggle will definitely help in protecting your eyes as you cut.  

 

6. Get away from utility lines 

 Always be cautious when you are cutting near a utility line. If ever you need to cut a branch near one, be sure that you turn off your supply for electricity to avoid possible accidents to happen.
