Removing a Damaged Tree from Your Yard

A couple of months ago, my husband’s beloved grandfather passed away. Thankfully, this wonderful man lived a long, happy life. After his death, my mother-in-law decided to clean up her old childhood home. The first thing on her to-do list was removing a gigantic, damaged tree from the yard. Because she was uncertain about completing the task herself, she enlisted the help of a friend who owned some heavy construction equipment. This individual was able to cut the tree down safely and easily remove the tree from the premises. If she had not had access to reliable, heavy construction equipment, my mother-in-law would have worked for days uprooting the tree. On this blog, I hope you will discover the best types of heavy construction equipment to use when removing damaged trees from your property. Enjoy!


Make Sure You Have the Right Equipment and Resources When Renting a Crane

When you are hiring a crane rental service, it's important to know the type of crane that you will need. This is because your project will be delayed and it will cost you more money if you don't rent the right type of crane.

Finding the Right Crane

The right type of crane is based on what you will be doing with it. For example, there are some cranes that are better suited for picking up and moving workers, and there are other cranes that are better suited for lifting heavy objects. However, the good news is that a crane rental service will be able to inform you on which type of crane would be the best option for your project. 


In addition to renting the crane, you will also need to know the type of rigger that you will need. The rigger consists of the chains, straps, and cables that are needed so that the object can then be lifted.


Transporting the equipment can be difficult, and this is especially the case if the equipment is very large and heavy. Therefore, you'll only want to rent a crane that is as large as you need it to be. A smaller crane will also be easier to fit in a tight location. 

Operating the Crane

In addition to renting a crane, you can also hire a crane operator. Operating a crane requires special training and it can be very dangerous to operate. A crane operator will be able to work under any conditions and will be trained on how to operate the type of crane you need. Hiring a crane operator from the same company that you rent the crane from can save you money. 

Saving Money

Besides hiring an operator from the same company, you can also save money if you rent the same hooks and straps from the same crane rental service. If you think you will need more than one crane, you should also be able to save money by renting multiple cranes from the same company. 

Communicating with the Team

Make sure to communicate with the crane rental service throughout the process. For example, your facility will need to be prepared for the lift. You will also need to obtain the necessary permits and a crane rental service will be able to help you do this. The more information you provide the crane rental services, the more successful your project will be.
