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: Occasionally storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is a good idea to have every tree that has lost a significant limb surveyed by a tree professional that can possibly do a risk evaluation on the tree to verify more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service totally free. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always warrant tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals carry out free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a house is a real “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade that trees offer decreases cooling costs in the summer and provides a buffer against the winter wind. Meanwhile the reduction in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenditures to increase (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees next to houses can also help unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to penetrate the attic. A customer of ours had us remove some trees touching his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a lot of money having somebody trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and afterwards needed to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In scenarios where limbs are effectively touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or siding.
Occasionally when a tree is very close to a home we may just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from the house but if a lot of limbs need to be removed it may cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be more suitable to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or basically settle on a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots may clog up your septic system| or they might crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or foundation. Since there is no other to prevent this other than tree removal it is always advisable to conduct some research or refer to a landscape professional when choosing on a location for trees around a house or driveway. Often people fail to envisage the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they might plan to sell theÂ house before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to require to pay a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their size trees can dominate much smaller plants. Home-owners should choose bushes or shrubs which will tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they have to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that isn’t performing well beneath a tree could be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some grasses only prosper in full direct sunlight. Whilst it may be less costly to take out the tree| if you really love the tree you may speak with a landscape company about switching to a different sort of grass to save the tree.
Impact on home value: While the perfect tree in the proper location may increase a property’s market value the inappropriate tree can damage property’s value. Oftentimes we can improve the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your house from the road. However in certain cases to enhance the curb appeal we have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically two things can not really inhabit the same area. Such is the instance of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Often in these situations tree removal is the sole option and if you are feeling depressed about taking out your best-loved tree you can always plant a different one. Albeit it may not mature in our lifespan our children or someone else’s children may well appreciate it.
Liability issues: We are not lawyers but this is the way in which fallen trees are often translated according to the law. If the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be neglectful or to blame for the tree falling. You dispose of the section of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is obligated with regard to tree removal and repairs to his premises. You are actually only liable for your property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the neighbor could file suit and a few insurance policies have a provision saying that these companies are exempt for perished or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you may be held accountable for damage 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 neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to protect yourself is to advise them in writing and let them know 99 % of competent tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your home you can use the written notice to position the expense of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know many homeowners who like to clean gutters. We literally could start a gutter cleaning company with the number of phone calls we get searching for a good affordable gutter cleaner. Everybody wants to have a cheap gutter cleaner but all the inexpensive ones I know aren’t insured and therefore I refuse to recommend them. Having said that clogged gutters are more frustrating than not having gutters at all. Blocked downspouts trigger the water to overflow into the face(fascia) boards and water caught behind the gutters causes them to rot. So that requires you to put in a gutter cap like http://www.leafguard.com or http://www.gutterguardian.com. Otherwise clean them yearly right after all the leaves have fallen and if you get fed up with that we are a tree removal expert.
Peace of Mind: We often times remove trees simply because some people lay awake on stormy nights as a result of a particular tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their residence. Unfortunately the sole way to insure a tree will never fall on the house is to take out all big trees within close quarters. It could be costly to remove a number of trees near your Arden NY home and sometimes this gets rid of the fear but leaves some remorse. Commonly fears can be soothed by having a tree service professional inspect the trees to ensure none of them have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. In the event that a tree has to be cleared away you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree executioner. Just plant a new native tree at a far better location on your estate and you are doing your part to renew the growth cycle. If you do not have space on your property but still wish to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They grow a tree for each dollar donated and you can also choose the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a few cultivated in a non harvest site within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
