Staying clear of visible power lines may seem like an obvious notion. However, the task can quickly escalate into panic when a tree falls in the direction of the power lines, or when a ladder comes into accidental contact. Power lines can also be camouflaged by tree branches.
Removing a tree can have other unintended consequences. Damage caused to under ground pipes and electrical lines can get very expensive. Outside of the obvious dangers, civil liabilities also exist. You can be held to pay thousands in repairs should you damage any utility feed
Climbing a tree has it's own risks. Knowing how to handle yourself 20', 30' in the air with power chainsaws is a skill that requires proper training. The branch you are cutting may seem not so heavy, but soon reality will prove different should it swing your way, knocking you off the ladder and possibly falling on top of you with a moving chainsaw. It's important to put yourself into a step by step scenario to truly realize the risks.
Nature is not always without harm. Poisonous insects and plants are a real threat. Not having the proper clothing and knowledge to identify these dangers can lead to a hospital visit. Florida is home to poisonous spiders, frogs, snakes just to name the obvious. Professionals are trained to recognize dangers and work in safety, yet they still get hurt. The average inexperienced home owner is at very high risk to injury and even death.
Professional tree service personnel work with power tools, axes and heavy equipment like wood chippers every day, yet they sometimes run into dire situations including fatality. Dropping a tree on your neighbor's house will prove very costly. If you cause death to another, criminal charges are sure to follow. Before taking on a project to remove or trim a tree, it's best to consider all these risks. These dangers are very real and people die every year from these accidents. The best solution is to call a professional.
