Always wear protective gear and keep others at a safe distance. Use 
these tools according to operating manuals and safety instruction. 
Leaning trees and those which have fallen on roof tops can be 
especially challenging. If you are not in good health or unsure about 
what you are doing, have someone else with tree cutting experience do 
the job. Never cut trees without a partner.

If using a generator, avoid carbon monoxide poisoning by following 
instructions by the manufacturer. Make sure that the generator is run 
in a well ventilated space.
