Sometimes They Have to Come Down
A big tree on your property can provide shade and beauty, but at some point, it may become necessary to take one down. Falling branches and limbs, along with other property damage, can turn big trees into problem trees. And these problem trees then become targets for tree removal.
Tree removal generates a lot of wood and debris. Certainly, all that wood must have some benefit. As we all try to do our part to reduce, reuse and recycle, taking the remnants from big trees can possibly lead to better uses. Here are a few ideas to think about:
Yard Furniture: A few properly sized logs and a little bit of shaping can lead to some clever ideas for new yard furniture. Caution is advised – these stumps and logs can weigh hundreds of pounds. Be sure to enlist the help of some able-bodied friends.
Yard Art: If you’re the crafty type, perhaps creating a carving from the remnants of a tree might suit your fancy. Obviously, this task is for those who have the tools and knowledge to create such carvings. Or, a simple web search might help you find the perfect artist for your project.
Woodworking: Do you have a family member that likes woodworking? Perhaps an old, dried out tree branch can be crafted into a decorative and useful birdhouse or other item. Not all tree species are ideal for woodworking projects, but the right ones can create beautiful projects.
Mulch: Mulch can be a useful addition to the yard. Whether for creating a decorative path, or for use in other areas of the yard, mulch and wood chips can add landscaping beauty.
