Removing a tree is a very big decision and should not be taken lightly. Dead or dying tress should be removed for health and safety. In certain circumstances, live trees should be removed when they interfere with other trees, buildings, driveways or utility wires.
Check Your Surrounding
The first thing you need to do is check your surrounding area for obstacles that may be in the way. A tree, fence, wires, or cars could all be something that would not allow you to remove the tree because of the potential that it could be a major issue in the project.
Observe The Tree
Just stand back and observe the way the tree is naturally leaning. The best fall would be its natural angle of growth. Check the tree itself for safety hazards such as dead or hanging branches. You need to check the trunk for open wounds that could indicate the center of the tree is rotten or hollow.
You need to make sure you have two escape routes that are available and can be used while the tree is falling. One on each side of the tree leading away from the expected fall line.
