Tree Safety Tips

Tree Service Safety Tips in Corpus Christi

It’s important to be extremely careful when you are trimming and cutting any of the trees on your property. One mistake that people often make is trying to take this task on by themselves. While it may seem like a simple task to remove a few branches here and there, tree trimming can be quite a dangerous task. 

CC Tree Service — ensuring tree safety practices during trimming

There are several dangers to be aware of when it comes to tree safety. First, climbing up to the required height to reach the trees you intend to trim can be a challenge in itself. You need the proper equipment to be able to reach these heights and also maintain stability. This is not the time for standing on stacked household objects. 

Then, there’s the dangers of actually cutting the trees from this height. Can you climb as high as you need to while holding your tree trimming tool(s)? Can you do so without putting yourself in danger? You need your surface to be stable enough to do the work of sawing through tree branches. 

And once you’ve trimmed the branches, there’s the whole falling branches thing… falling branches can be extremely dangerous to not only you and your family, but your house, pets, and any vehicles that may be near by. You must ensure that you have a plan for which branches you’re trimming, and where and how they will fall.
