So why would you want to remove a tree anyway? As a tree service| tree removal is a lot of what we do. We love our job but we always want to remove trees for the right reasons. Below is a list of the most common reasons for tree removal in Arden NY.
Dead| Dying| Diseased Trees: One of the most popular reasons for tree removal is that the tree is dead| dying| and diseased. This is also the most justifiable reason to for tree removal. The tree is dead or near death and needs to be removed before it becomes a hazard to people and structures around it. (See Liability Issues below)
Storm Damaged or Injured Trees: Usually storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is still a good idea to have every tree that has lost a good sized limb surveyed by a tree professional that should do a risk evaluation on the tree to verify more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service free of cost. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always require tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals provide free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a residence is a real “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade which trees offer decreases cooling bills in the summer season and provides a barrier against the winter wind. However the decrease in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance costs to grow (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees close to houses can also make it possible for unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter into the attic. A customer of ours had us remove some trees touching on his house because a family of squirrels which had gotten in his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a bunch of money having somebody trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and then needed to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In cases where limbs are effectively touching the house the constant swaying of the trees can cause damaged roof shingles or siding.
Often when a tree is very near to a house we may simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if lots of limbs need to be cleared away it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be more effective to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or just make a decision on a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots may clog up your septic system| or they can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or home. Since there is no alternative way to stop this other than tree removal it is always prudent to carry out some research or consult with a landscape professional when deciding on a location for trees around a house or driveway. Often people fail to anticipate the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they might plan to sell theÂ property before it reaches maturity leaving the new owner to have to pay a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: A result of their size trees can overshadow smaller plants. Homeowners ought to decide on bushes or shrubs that can tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they have to deal with a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that is not performing well under a tree can be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only flourish in full sun light. Even though it may be more affordable to remove the tree| if you love the tree you might speak with a landscape expert about switching to a different kind of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the perfect tree in the proper location may boost a homes resale value the inappropriate tree can hurt a home’s value. Oftentimes we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is merely clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. However in certain cases to enhance the curb appeal we will have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees at times two things can not really occupy the same area. Such is the scenario of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Often in these scenarios tree removal is the only solution and if you are feeling depressed about taking out your beloved tree you can always plant another one. Even if it will not mature in our lifetime our children or someone else’s kids may well take joy in it.
Liability issues: Our people are not lawyer or attorneys but this is the way in which falling trees are generally interpreted based upon the law. On the assumption that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not deemed to be neglectful or to blame for the tree dropping down. You remove the chunk of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is responsible with respect to tree removal and repairs to his property. You are actually only responsible for your residential property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the next-door neighbor could file suit and some insurance policies have a stipulation saying that these companies are not responsible for perished or diseased trees. If this were to happen you can be held accountable for damages to the neighbor’s property and your insurance will not pay if they have a clause about dead or diseased trees. On the flip side if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the best way to protect yourself is to notify them in writing and let them know 99 % of competent tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your home you can use the written notification to position the expense of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know many people who like to clean out gutters. We literally could start a gutter cleaning business with the quantity of telephone calls we receive seeking out a good cheap gutter cleaner. Almost everyone wants to have a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the low-cost kind I know typically aren’t insured and that is why I refuse to recommend them. Nevertheless clogged gutters are worse than not having gutters whatsoever. Congested downspouts cause the water to overflow onto the face(fascia) boards and water caught behind the gutters causes these to rot. So that requires you to install a gutter cap like http://www.leafguard.com or http://www.gutterguardian.com. Or else clean them yearly soon after all the leaves have fallen and if you get fed up with that we are a tree removal expert.
Peace of Mind: We oftentimes remove trees because some people lay awake on windy nights because of a certain tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over the house. The fact is the only way to insure a tree will never fall on the house is to remove all large trees inside of close quarters. It can be costly to remove a lot of trees near your Arden NY residence and often this eliminates the fear but leaves behind some regret. Typically fears can be relieved by having a tree service company inspect the trees to ensure none of these have any defects that would make them a higher than normal threat. In the event that a tree needs to be taken down you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree executioner. Simply plant a brand-new native tree at a better location on your estate and you are doing your part to renew the growth cycle. If you don’t have space on your property but still wish to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They plant a tree for each dollar donated and you can also choose the location by US State or country. Chop down a tree in your yard and have a few cultivated in a non harvest area within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
