DIY Tree Removal Most Common Mistakes 

While removing a tree can be accomplished by anyone with the courage and strength, it's best to leave this job to a qualified professional, as there are many costly and fatal errors that could be made in tree removal. Here are some of them:

1. Not wearing appropriate protective gear:
Wear goggles, gloves, and hard hat at all times. A hard hat provides protection for your head in case branches or the tree falls in the wrong direction. Goggles will protect your eyes from spit out coming from the chainsaw activity or from debris falling from the tree. The surface of a tree is very rough and a reliable pair of gloves is important in protecting your hands against the tree's rough trunk. Also, it could help spare your hands in the event that they get too close to the chainsaw.

2. Not having an escape plan:
When removing a tree, trees in general should fall in the direction it is naturally leaning, because that's the way it tends to fall. But it's possible that a tree doesn't fall the way you plan or expect it to, and so always be aware and alert about getting yourself out of risk. Plot a good escape route in either direction that the tree may fall.

3. Lack of awareness:
If you are removing a tree (especially if you're doing it on your own), you should be ware of your surroundings at all times. Be aware of cords, roots, or rocks that could trip you over. When you're using a chainsaw, you definitely wouldn't want an unexpected tripping over then landing on the chainsaw you are using. Make it certain that the chain locked when you're walking around or when you're not cutting, because a second of being less aware of your surroundings or being careless can be fatal.

4. Removing the "wrong" tree:
The location and condition of the tree should be considered. Dead, diseased, or dying trees should be properly removed. But removing some trees could leave a costly and negative effect on your landscape in general. Consider the money, time, and effort you can spend on your landscape after the tree removal process.

5. Not getting rid of the stump:
Not removing the stump could result in insect infestation, and possibly the worst type -- termites! Such annoying wood-borers could move from the stump into your house, causing inconvenience and damage to your home.
