Tree Worker Jobs That Take Skills

A few months ago, I wrote a page about a guy that tried to lie to me about his skill level as a climber. It was a pretty funny scenario and the young Jobs that take skillman continued to hold on to his story until the very end. You know I got to thinking that tree service, although it is a very dangerous job to lie about, It is not the only Jobs that take skills. Tree worker Jobs that take skills include; climbing, running a rope and doing a good job on the ground. A man that knows his business can always spot someone that doesn’t.

Think About This | Tree Worker Jobs That Take Skills

Is there really a job that someone that has never done before can fake well? Could a man treeworkerjobsthattakeskill pretend to be a landscape designer on the job and fool a landscape designer?

As a house painting contractor, I had guys that came to work for me that were supposed to be skilled expert house painters. However, when we got on the job, I would tell the new guy, go ahead and paint here (as I pointed to an area of the house). The guy would go to work as I walked away. A few minutes later I would come back to find their paint brush covered in paint all the way up the handle or they would ask me how to get in a tight spot and I would laugh. Depending on their pay, I may or may not say something to them at the time. Or what if a guy said he was a crane operator, could he pull it off?

I would like to know about you guys encounters like this.

Tree Removal In Tyler Texas

tyler tree service

When I hear the words professional tree removal, I think about lawyers and doctors etc: but what is Professionalism?

I don’t think so. The definition is just used more for white collar workers.

Professional is defined as “white collar.” I consider myself a Professional but my job is anything but white collar. Does this mean that I am any less professional?

Felling A Tree Without Hitting an Obstacle

Felling a Tree Without Structures in the Way

However, when I go to a customer’s house that has a large tree in a small place, they want to know how I intend to felling a tree without hitting a structure.  Sometimes they will even have healthy trees either close by or right under the tree that the customer is wanting removed.

 

First Rule For Felling A Tree

Assess The problem points that you may face.

Most of the problems that come up during a tree removal, could be avoided if only people would pre-think the removal. This is not to say that you will not adapt the plan as you go. But put a plan of action in place before you start.

  • Is there a probability for hitting something?

  • A. Is the object that you may hit moveable? If not what actions will need to be taken to avoid hitting it?

  • B. Is there an easy way for felling the tree without damaging anything?

  •  If so, which way is the tree leaning? 1. Even if the tree is obviously leaning the way that you are wanting the tree to fall, you should put a pull on the tree from the top.  Using a thinner line that is strong with a weight you can pull a thicker rope or cable to the top of the tree. Throw the weight over the upper most limb possible once the lighter string is attached. Next, tie the larger rope to the thin rope.  Pull the larger rope over the limb.  Tie a slip-knot so that you can pull the rope tight around the trunk or the largest part of the tree. Attach to a pulley or a vehicle.felling a tree
    • Start your cut with one level cut into the trunk of the tree.  You will need to go at least 1/3 of the way through the tree but no more than 1/2 of the diameter.
    • Cut down to the stopping point of your cut. Try to go the full distance So that your cut will not be cut further on the bottom. Your finished cut when looking at it from the side should look like a 45 degree cut.
    • Once you are ready to fell the tree, tighten the rope or cable first. Then start cutting the back of the tree slightly above the notch that you made. Be sure to cut the tree level so that you will not force the tree to go backward.  Also be sure that you are cutting the tree above the notch and not at a downward angle, this could also make the tree fall 180 degrees from where you are wanting it to fall.

**WARNING: WHENEVER POSSIBLE YOU SHOULD USE A TRAINED PROFESSIONAL FOR FELLING TREES**

**FOR OBVIOUS RISKS AND THOSE THAT ARE UNFORESEEABLE**

How To Measure The Distance That a Tree Will Fall

For Illustrations go here: http://www.wikihow.com/Measure-the-Height-of-a-Tree

  1. Using a piece of paper-  you can take a piece of paper and fold it to make a right triangle by folding one corner and going to the other side of the paper until both of the edges align perfectly. Remove the excess paper at the bottom and you are ready for measuring the tree. Holding the paper with the flat side level and the long side giving you a line of site vision from one of your eyes to the top of the tree. Walk backwards away from the tree until the tip top of the tree is at the top of the paper. Mark the spot on the ground. This is where the tip top of the tree will topple too.
  2. Using a stick or a pen – from the side view of where you want to drop the tree. Walk back until the stick or the pen just covers the bottom to the top of the tree. Then lay the pen sideways keeping the bottom of the pen in the same place.  The top of the pen will show you how far the tree will fall when felling a tree.

Keeping your trees cleaned out and pruned will cause less resistance to the wind, which can make a huge difference in a storm.

Most of the time, when a tree topples over in a storm, it could have been prevented if the tree

was properly taken care of.  Not to say that a branch couldn’t break in a storm, but when cleaned out properly, trees will offer less resistance to the wind.

In the Tyler area we had a lot of trees that came down in 2015 and most was due to high winds, and lack of maintenance.  Call us today and we can send a tree consultant to come and look at your trees and give you our advise and a free estimate on anything that you are wanting to have done.

Hiring Best Tree Removal Service

When a tree removal emergency or issue stares at you in the face. There are several facts that you have to consider before hiring the best tree removal service. Some people even think about scouring the internet to DIY the tree cutting and stump removal process, but what they don’t know is that insurance seldom covers any accidents that occur from tree cutting and people are not properly equipped with either the knowledge or the tools to do the highly technical kind of work, needed for stump removal.

This is the main reason why you should consider hiring the best tree removal service in Texas. At Professional 4 Life Tree Service, our expert arborists have the right training, experience and technical knowledge to gauge the best technique that can be used to safely and efficiently remove a tree. Some of the tree removal processes are completed in just half an hour. But that happens when you select the services of the right company for the job, one who wouldn’t butcher your tree and leave it in a worse shape than before.

To make sure that you are making the right choice, here are a few pointers to memorize.

Check the Credentials on Best Tree Removal Service

Although word of mouth is an excellent way to find out if the company has provided satisfactory services in the past, the best way is to do an online search and read all the customer reviews. It’s sometimes quite easy to pose as a professional tree removal service in Texas, by just buying a small amount of tools, but to ensure that you are getting your money’s worth, stick with established and renowned companies that have proven track records and are licensed.

Follow up on the references that you receive, and make sure that you are trusting an honest and experienced tree cutting service. Moreover, check if they are insured for any tree removal related accidents. For example, our company is insured up to a million dollars, because at Professional 4 Life Tree Service, we give safety of our clients’ precedence over all other things.

Consider Pricing

best tree removal service

Yes, this is really important. Most people tend to bargain the prices, but remember if an experienced and well established firm is charging a little higher than the rest, it’s because they ensure a comprehensive, efficient and exceptional service package that will be beneficial to you in the long run. Considering the pricing for tree removal services in Texas will give you an insight into how the company is charging for its services. The prices of tree or stump removal usually depend upon the damage of the tree, tree height, age and type of tree. Some enterprises charge on an hourly basis and may charge extra for travel and transportation, so make sure that you mention all these things when you are setting the price for tree removal services.

Find Out What The Best Tree Removal Service Package Includes.

This is one of the most crucial things to consider. You must ask the customer representative of the tree cutting service what a basic tree removal service package entails. Some companies might just cut the tree and chop it into manageable portions, while others might offer you the service of hauling the pieces away for you. Some companies leave the tree where it lies prior to cutting, and you will have to hire someone else to move it, which is counter-productive. You must ask questions about the services that they are willing to provide, even if they are charging extra for it, and try to get it all on paper.

Should You Pay For Extras?

Although you might consider doing some of the extra work yourself or even consider hiring someone else to do it for a lesser price, remember that you will have to make additional phone calls, fill out extra paperwork and waste a lot of time and money in the process. Try to find out if the tree cutting service is willing to provide you with extra benefits at value-added pricing. Most of the companies offer a discounted price to their clients for cutting the tree down to smaller pieces and grinding the stump, or if you have hired them for tree removal, they will chip up your branches and haul them away or leave them stacked for your use.

Remember that tree removal and tree cutting is hard and technical work, and cannot be handled by inexperienced people or DIY enthusiasts. Hiring the best tree removal service in Texas is the first step towards making your landscape look as beautiful as it can be. Therefore, invest a little money for ensuring that your tree cutting or stump removal is effective and safe. If you want professional arborists to handle all your tree issues, contact us today. Our experts at Professional 4 Life Tree Service will guide you and offer you the best price for the best tree removal service in Texas.

Professional 4 Life definition of Professional tree removal

According to the google definition I wasn’t far off.

Professional is defined as “white collar.”  I consider myself a Professional but my job is anything but white collar.  Does this mean that I am any less professional?

I don’t think so.  The definition is just used more for white collar workers.  We fall into the Second adjective definition. A person engaged in a specific activity as one’s main occupation rather than as a pastime.

Not mentioned in the above definition, people should also, when they are professional tree removal services:

  • dealing with problems when they come up, without losing your temper or making decisions based on emotions.  Stop and think before reacting!
  • Making sure you take care of your customers such as filling in holes in the yard or cut another limb. It makes a huge difference.
  • Use skilled labor.  Too often I see businesses especially in the tree service industry where owners are using unskilled labor. I believe this is a HUGE mistake.  Not only are these guys very dangerous for the customers property and their own safety. They will not be very skilled in this trade. Without proper training, no one will be able to be Great at tree removal or tree pruning.
  • Be on time.  When you are bidding jobs. Be on time if you tell someone that you will be there at a specific time.
  • Finally, be organized.  This saves you time and money as well as making you look good to your customers.  This is something that you usually have to constantly work at.

Using tools like calendars and reminders on phones will help a lot with staying organized.
