When there is a dead tree in your yard, it can be a hazard to you and your property. The first thing that you will do is call a tree service to have it removed. One thing that many homeowners forget is that that is often going to be left with the waste. There are many things you can do with tree removal waste, such as repurposing it as usable material. Here are some tips that will help you deal with the tree removal waste you get left with:
1. Turning Your Dead Tree Waste Into Usable Biomass Fuel
The easiest thing that you can do to get rid of your tree waste is to use it as biomass fuel. This could be firewood that you use in a fireplace or wood-burning stove or wood chip materials that can be burned in specially designed boilers for radiant heating. If you have had many trees removed, there are biomass fuel companies that will take the waste and turn it into compressed pellet fuels. If you do the more common chore of cutting it into firewood, you can also sell the wood to help pay for the tree removal work.
2. Mulches and Composts From Dead Tree Waste to Use in Landscaping
The small waste when you have a tree removal done can be used for various purposes. You may want to consider using a wood chipper to break down debris with leaves to add to a compost pile, that will give you soil that you can use in your gardens. For the larger branches, clean the leafy materials off of them and put them through a wood chipper to use as mulch in ground covers for paths and flower beds in your landscaping. Doing these things will help you get rid of the bulk of the tree removal waste that is so unsightly to have lay around your home.
3. Repurposing Your Tree Removal Waste as Timber for Landscaping Projects
The materials from your tree removal could be useful for landscaping timber. Consider using larger branches and trunks for borders around paths and flower beds. If you have a chainsaw available, there are also many options for cutting the materials down to rough cut lumber that you can use for various woodworking projects. If the trees you removed were oak, cedar or other timber that is resistant to rot and decay, these are excellent materials to use for your outdoor woodworking projects.
These are some tips that will help you deal with tree removal waste when you need to get rid of a dead tree. If you need help with your tree problems, contact a tree removal service to help with dead tree removal and dealing with the waste.
