Tree care and removal operations can be hazardous, especially when it comes to large trees that can cause significant damage when they fall. In some cities and counties, you'll need a permit to cut down a tree, and certain species are more difficult to cut and remove than others. It's important to understand the regulations in your area, as well as the safety requirements for safely disposing of used or damaged tree service equipment. In Nevada, there are no special requirements for disposing of used or damaged tree service equipment.
However, the state does have a law that makes it illegal to fell or damage a foreign tree without permission. If caught, the person responsible will be liable for three times the amount of the tree. In addition, some cities and counties may require a permit to cut down a tree, especially if it is in a historic district, is designated as a specimen, or is a tree of historic importance. In Montpelier, the municipal tree board has the right to cut down trees from private property if they are sick or pose a hazard to other properties.
The city also has regulations on street trees that allow privately owned trees to be pruned. In Oakland, certain types of trees are “protected” and cannot be removed without permission. In Sacramento, a permit is required to cut down trees on private property if they are designated as “heritage trees” or are oak trees. In Louisiana, cypress trees owned by the state cannot be felled without a state lease, rights of way or permit.
The power generation, transmission and distribution standard also contains provisions applicable to brushcutter chippers, stump cutters, chainsaws and other machines used in tree care and removal operations. When disposing of used or damaged tree service equipment, it's important to follow safety protocols. Make sure that all power lines have been de-energized and grounded before beginning any work. Wear protective gear such as gloves and goggles when handling sharp objects.
Dispose of any hazardous materials such as oil or gasoline in accordance with local regulations. It's also important to properly dispose of any debris from the job site. If you're cutting down a large tree, you may need to hire a crane to remove it safely. Make sure that all branches and trunks are disposed of properly according to local regulations.
If you're using a chipper or stump grinder, make sure that all debris is disposed of in an appropriate manner.
