If you have a dead, diseased, or dangerous tree on your land, then having it removed is often the best option. If you have it removed, then you don't have to worry about it falling on your house or landscape. You also don't have to worry about broken branches and dead leaves becoming scattered all over your yard. But having your tree removed can also, in and of itself, be a messy process. The following are good ways to limit the mess when having a tree removed from your property.
Move all of your cars, furniture, and other items
Park your car somewhere else, and move all of the items in your yard. If you can pick an item up and put it away somewhere, do so. This way, you don't have to worry about tree debris falling on these items when the tree is being taken down. It will be easier to rake the debris up out of your yard when the yard is clear. Plus, moving all of these items may allow your tree removal company to access the tree more easily, which may enable them to make less mess while cutting the tree down.
Put cloths over shrubs and small trees
When the tree removal company is cutting down the tree, there will surely be some small branches that fall down. These can get caught in shrubs and small trees and be difficult to pull out later. To make things easier on yourself, cover your shrubs and trees with plain sheets. The branches will land on top rather than getting caught up in your living plants.
Ask the tree removal company to take the wood with them
Some tree removal companies leave the wood behind by default. But unless you want the wood for fires or another use, it's usually less messy to just have the tree company take the wood with them. This way, you won't have logs and chunks to clean up after the appointment. If the company you're hiring won't haul the wood away, ask them if they can recommend a firewood company that would come pick it up from you. Schedule that company to come the day after the tree removal, if possible.
If you follow the tips above, you will limit the mess made when a tree is removed from your land. Don't hesitate to ask your tree removal company for more tips and advice in this realm.
