As we gear up for another beautiful, fruitful spring leading to fantastic sunny summer days, we strategically begin to form our troubleshooting to-do list. A list comprised of improvements and “work-smarter-not-harder” methods designed to clear our way to a more fruitful season.
The winter has brought on frozen grounds, making the simplest of tasks, like picking up hazardous rocks and stones nearly impossible. The earth comes alive – it shifts, and erodes – causing the need for larger rocks and boulders to be unearthed and removed from the land. Music to a rock hunters ears. Farmers, on the other hand, are thinking of how to keep their fields free of debris that has washed into fields and brush growth of last year from damaging equipment. If you’re ever unsure of the amount of work it’ll take, ask a specialist to evaluate the situation and offer safe, affordable solutions. (618) 943-2453.
Count Your Limbs
Cutting down trees in your selected farming area, garden, home property with a chainsaw is extremely dangerous. Here are a couple of statistics from the Advanced Emergency Medicine report on Chain Saw Related Injuries from 2009 to 2013.
“A total of 115,895 emergency room visits for injuries related to the use of a chain saw occurred during the study period [2009 to 2013]. Most injury visits occurred among males (95%) and persons aged 30–59 years and during the months of September through November. The main body sites injured were the hand/fingers and knee. The majority of injuries were lacerations (80%).”
That is harsh! Don’t be a statistic and consult an expert.
Proceed With Caution
Get Yourself An Expert Crew
Focusing on your land is a priority. You need a professional to maintain the property to allow you the time to focus on your business. A professional arborist can determine the equipment required to maximize the tillable land. They can strategically create drainage and allow access to more acreage. A professional arborist can also provide the services of a trained crew with the required safety equipment and liability insurance.
