Steps for safe felling of the tree:
Plan ahead – these professionals make a strategy for cutting the tree so that the process is done safely. They carry tools and equipments which will be favorable for cutting the trees and they also carry the tools that can help them in protecting themselves from wild animals of forests.
Check direction – the professionals do a pre crosscheck of the direction in which the tree is going to fall after it is cut. This activity protects the local residents and villagers from getting harmed. They calculate the angular direction in minimum two directions to manage the situation when the tree falls.
Use of signs – when they start cutting the trunk, they put a danger signal board or signboard that helps in making the people who are driving vehicles from the path of forests aware of the process that is going on. After putting the sign board, they start removing the small twigs and branches of the tree so that its whole volume gets decreased. This process helps in felling the tree with ease.
