Having trees in your front and backyard is a good way to protect your home and at the same time support Mother Nature for a cleaner and greener environment. Trees are also beautifying agents. In spite of the many advantages brought about by trees, you cannot deny the fact that these trees grow old and when that day comes, their branches, twigs, and leaves extend to a point that it becomes troublesome to you. So, in order to keep your trees in a friendly position, cutting the branches & twigs, and trimming the leaves are your solutions.
You can always call for professional help to cut the branches especially if the trees are really big. But if the branches and twigs are manageable to cut, you can always perform a do-it-yourself strategy.
Learn the basics of cutting trees by doing the following:
First Step – Before you even attempt to cut, make sure you know what part to cut. Identify the portion you think needs to be removed first.
Second Step – You should cut the limb from the underside first all the way half through it.
Third Step – Make a second cut starting on the top which is the opposite side of your first cut, then go through it all the way at half.
Fourth Step – Let the branch fall on its own. Don’t forget not to cut the branch all the way when you used the saw.
Fifth Step – Finish it by cutting the remaining stub from where the branch has fallen in order to make it nearer to the trunk.
Sixth Step – Clean everything by properly disposing the branch. Don’t forget to use quality saw and don’t forget to wear safety gears in doing the cutting. The tree will just dry off the cut portion.
