Answer

Unless your tree is quite small, it is strongly advised that you hire a professional arborist to cut it down. Felling a large tree can be a dangerous project and can easily lead to serious injury if not done properly. Most states have a website for certified arborists. In New York consult the New York State Arborists' Membership Directory.

If you decide to do the work yourself, several website are available that take you through the process step by step. Here are two:

Be sure to follow all the safety precautions carefully.
