The trees are important part of our eco system and without trees, there will certainly be no life and this is why it is very important that the tree risk assessment are conducted so that the people not only just cut or remove the trees but also analyse the risks associated with it so that these precautionary measures could be taken in this respect. Not only this risk assessment of the tree felling is conducted when the tree fell naturally but these are usually conducted when the tree removal services are performed so that the person who is cutting the tree through some equipment is safe from all the hazards involved.
What are the steps to ensure the safety during the tree removal and trimming?
Determine the causes which could prove to be dangerous:
The first thing that you need to do is to determine which kind of the area you are working in, the area of the workplace will help you identify the potential damage attached. Then based on the nature of the job identify the equipment and the materials that you will be needing and what physical effort is required in this job.
How can you virtually asses the tree?
The virtual assessment is one of the most common and most effective kind of the technique used to asses the risks involved in the cutting of the tree. An experienced person who has knowledge of the tree and has been in the field for some time knows from just looking at the tree that what could be the risks in cutting this tree. This is how the person estimates what kind of approach he should use to cut the tree and how much physical effort and what kind of the equipment are required.
What questions you need to ask for tree felling risk assessment?
There are some questions related to the tree cutting and the felling which should be answered before you try to cut down the trees to make sure that all things go smoothly. Some of these questions include whether the branches of the tree you are aiming to cut are mingled or connected to the other trees which are nearby? There is a crown of every tree and before cutting you need to make sure whether it is leaning or not? Check if there is a nest of some bed on the branch or the crown of the tree? Ensure that the bark is inclusive and that there is no diseased part of the tree. Most important question that you need to answer is that whether the tree is stable or not. When all of these are answered properly then you could move to the next phase. Check this link https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tree_care to find out more details.
