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: Sometimes storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is still a good practice to take any specific tree that has recently lost a good sized limb examined by a tree professional who can do a risk assessment on the tree to make sure more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service free of cost. Injured trees are most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always necessitate tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals offer free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a house is a total “catch 22” state of affairs. On the one hand the shade that trees offer decreases cooling bills in the summertime and provides a buffer against the winter wind. However the drop in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenditures to increase (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees alongside houses can also make it possible for unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to gain access to the attic. A client of ours had us remove some trees touching his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a lot of money having someone else trap and remove the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and afterwards needed to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In situations where limbs are effectively touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged roof shingles or home siding.
Occasionally whenever a tree is too close to a house we may simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if lots of limbs need to be cleared away it might cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be more effective to remove the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or simply decide on a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots can sometimes clog up your septic system| or they can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or property. Since there is no alternative way to stop this other than tree removal it is always advisable to conduct some research or consult a landscape company when deciding on a location for trees around a property or driveway. Often people fail to envisage the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they just plan to sell theÂ home before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to require to pay a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: A result of their overall size trees can overshadow small plants. Property owners should certainly select bushes or shrubs which are able to tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they need to live with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that is not performing well under a tree could be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only do well in full sunlight. While it may be less costly to remove the tree| if you really like the tree you could consult a landscape professional about switching to a different sort of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the right tree in the proper location may increase a property’s worth the inappropriate tree can hurt a home’s value. In many cases we can enhance the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is simply removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your house from the road. However in certain cases to improve the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes 2 things can not inhabit the same location. Such is the instance of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Generally in these scenarios tree removal is the only option and if you are feeling down about getting rid of your favorite tree you can always plant another one. Even if it doesn’t mature in our life-time our children or someone else’s children may well take joy in it.
Liability issues: are not lawyers but this is the way fallen trees are generally interpreted according to the law. In the event that the tree was not obviously dead or diseased you are not considered to be negligent or to blame for the tree falling. You dispose of the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is liable when it comes to tree removal and repairs to his property. You are actually only responsible for your property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the next-door neighbor could sue and some insurance policies have a clause saying that these companies are exempt for deceased or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you could be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s property and your insurance will not pay if they have a clause concerning dead or diseased trees. On the other hand if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the best way to safeguard yourself is to advise them in writing and let them find out 99 % of professional tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your residence you can use the written notification to place the expense of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know many property owners that like to clean gutters. We actually could start a gutter maintenance business with the number of telephone calls we receive looking for a good cheap gutter cleaner. Almost everyone wants a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-priced ones I know typically aren’t insured and therefore I refuse to recommend them. Having said that clogged gutters are much worse compared to not having gutters whatsoever. Blocked downspouts cause the water to overflow into the face(fascia) boards and water caught behind the gutters causes them to rot. So that requires you to install a gutter cap like http://www.leafguard.com or http://www.gutterguardian.com. Otherwise clean them yearly after all the leaves have fallen and if you get fed up with that we are a tree removal specialist.
Peace of Mind: We often remove trees because some people lay awake on windy night-times due to a certain tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their house. The fact is the sole way to guarantee a tree doesn’t fall on the house is to take out all large trees inside of striking distance. It could be expensive to remove a number of trees near your Arden NY house and often this alleviates the fear but leaves behind some remorse. Often fears can be soothed by having a tree service professional assess the trees to make sure none of them have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. In the event that a tree needs to be taken down you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree executioner. Simply plant a fresh native tree at a far better location on your property and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you don’t have space on your property but still would like 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 even choose the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a few planted in a non harvest location within New York or even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
