Unless you have the experience, skills, and training to cut trees properly, it’s best to leave such a task in the hands of a professional tree cutting service in Dublin. When a tree becomes diseased or dies, it’s best to cut it down in order to avoid getting injured and prevent damage to your home and other structures on your property. In this type of work, inexperience can be very dangerous and in some cases even fatal. The following is a list of the 8 most common tree cutting accidents experienced by DIY’ers:

Amputations – the risk of cutting off fingers, hands, and parts of your arm is extremely high when using heavy equipment and power tools. These are oftentimes attributed to equipment malfunctioning or human error.

Bites and stings – many animals and stinging insects make their homes in trees. So when they get disturbed by homeowners, tree cutting specialists, or any other individual, that person may get attacked.

Cuts or lacerations – another common injury that DIY tree cutters experience are cuts and/or lacerations. In most cases, these injuries are caused by chainsaws, other cutting equipment, and handsaws.

Electrocution – the risk of electrocution is extremely high when a trained tree cutting specialist in Dublin is working around power lines. With that in mind, can you imagine how dangerous it is if you’re an untrained individual attempting to do the same thing? You may get electrocuted and that can lead to long term disability and a lot of other complications. That is why it is important to let professionals handle it.

Eye injuries – sawdust and wood chips scattering through the air can easily find their way into unprotected eyes and cause abrasions to the cornea as well as cuts and scratches to the eye.

Falling – this is the second most common accident experienced by DIY’ers when they are cutting trees. They could fall off a ladder, off their roof, or out of the tree they’re working on, especially if they are working without wearing a safety harness.

Getting struck – according to the CDC, getting struck by a felled branch or limb is the most common tree cutting accident and source of injuries among non-professionals.

Impact injuries – in the event that a bucket truck’s lift mechanism fails or a rope breaks unexpectedly, you could easily be pinned against your house or get slammed into the tree, thereby sustaining serious injuries.

In reality, it is far too risky to treat tree cutting as a DIY project, especially when you haven’t been properly trained for that kind of work. Why run the risk of serious injury? Let a tree cutting specialist in Dublin save you lots of grief by handling the job themselves.

Testimonials

We hired Arborworks to remove 10 trees at our new house. There was a small overgrown forest going on. I don’t think anyone ever trimmed anything in this yard! Not only did they remove the trees and ground the stumps, they also took out our other items we had cut down ourselves.The biggest tree was almost three stories, you could see it towering over the house from the front and we have a two story house. Could not believe how efficiently they cut down that monster tree. Their guy who was in the tree – WOW he made it look easy but I know that it wasn’t! Knew what limbs to cut and where the limbs were going to fall. Was very impressed! We were there when they took all the trees out and I can tell you they definitely know what they are doing. They asked if we wanted the chips/mulch from the stump grinder otherwise they would have taken it away.I would hire them again in a heart beat and I’ve already recommended them! Great prices and GREAT service.
