Sometimes, trees are inhabited by Jinns which they take as their place of residence. Therefore, the Amils (those involved in the field of Jinns and Ta’weez etc) advise that a person should announce to the tree a few times or over few days that he will be cutting down the tree and that they should take up residence elsewhere.
One should be particular with the recitation of the three Quls every morning and evening thrice each for one’s own protection.
