Have you being considering the options available to you for removing the conifers around your home? Or perhaps you’re just planning to raise some structures in an area where you have lots of conifer trees. Regardless of your reason for wanting to remove a conifer tree, you’ve come to the right place!
There are multiple options to remove a conifer tree based on the one that best suits your needs. Some individuals are okay with felling the tree and leaving the stumps behind, while others don’t just want both the tree and the stumps so they poison the tree and subject the stumps to a quick rotting process.
lThe Physical Method
This basically involves felling the trees with the help of powerful machines and other tools. Let’s take a look!
• Early preparation. Get your chainsaw ready alongside your pruning tools as well as other equipments that can prove to be useful.
• Determine the direction you want the tree to fall. You must ensure there’s no passerby risk or risk of damage to any property whatsoever.
• Cut down the trunk. Put your chainsaw to use. First cut doen the branches and twigs before felling the tree.
• Choose your cutting technique depending on the tree’s size, slope and chainsaw available.
• Check for possible infestation before removing the conifer tree.
• Remove the conifer stumps by grinding the stumps out (use a grinder) and setting fire to consume the stumps.
lThe Chemical Method
To carry out this process, you need to first cut down the large tree branches using a chainsaw. Once done, cut off a portion around the circumference of the trunk below the lower branches, close to the root. Leave the bark’s strips connected to the conifer tree to expose the inner tissue.
Mix the chemicals and apply into the conifer tree directly until the whole surface is covered. This will make the conifer tree to die off gradually for a couple of weeks.
