DIY jobs you ‘definitely’ need a professional for – could put you in a lot of ‘danger’

4. Tree removal

The Checkatrade pros explained: “Cutting down a tree is dangerous work. Especially when you don’t know what you’re doing, lack the experience of removing a tree, and do not have the right equipment to do the job.

“Although there’s a risk of you falling from a height, there’s also the risk of being hit by debris. Even if the falling debris misses you, other people, houses and vehicles nearby may not be so lucky.

“A professional tree surgeon will know exactly how to control the removal of your tree. They have the experience, they have the tools, and they know how best to cut a tree of any size.

“Even better, they will remove your tree much quicker than you would yourself.”
