3 Ways To Deal With Your Tree Removal Waste

If you have to have a tree removed, there is a lot of waste that gets left behind. Dealing with this waste can be challenging, but there are some things that you can do to get rid of your tree waste. You can do things like create compost, mulch and firewood. You can also use some of the materials for lumber for projects around the home. Here are some tips to help you deal with the waste that is left behind after a tree removal:

1. Breaking Down Small Debris To Add To A Compost Pile

Breaking down the debris into compost is something simple to do for your garden. All the smallest debris can be broken down to use as compost. This is a good idea for the leafy debris, which is too small for using for things like wood chips and ground cover. You can mix this debris with other organic waste to create your compost pile.

2. Using Large Branches To Create Mulch And Wood Chips For Ground Cover

You can also use large branches for things like mulch and ground cover. While lawn mowers and leaf blowers often have mulching features, they will probably not be powerful enough to break up the large branches. You can rent or buy larger wood chippers to break down large waste that you want to use for ground cover in landscaping. For more attractive mulch, try not to use materials with leaves and other debris, such as fruits and acorns.

3. Rough Sawing Large Timber To Reuse A Lumber For Work Around The Home

There are also the large timbers that can be left behind when you have a tree removal done. Some of this material, you may want to use for firewood. There are other things that you can do with it, such as cutting it into useable lumber. To do this, you can hew the logs into  square timbers. This can allow you to store them and let them dry and cure. Once the timber is dry, you can use a table saw or other machinery, such as an Alaskan sawmill, to cut the timbers down into the lumber you need.

These are some tips to help you deal with the waste that is left behind after a tree removal. If you want to have a tree removed, contact a tree removal service like Jonny's Tree & Landscaping Co., LLC and ask them about helping you with your tree problems.
