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 Central Valley 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: Once in a while storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is still a good practice to take any tree that has definitely lost a pretty big limb surveyed by a tree professional that can do a risk assessment on the tree to check more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service for free. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always require tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals make available free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a house is a total “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade which trees provide decreases cooling costs in the hot months and provides a barrier from the winter wind. On the other hand the decrease in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing maintenance bills to grow (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees near to houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to penetrate the attic. A client of ours had us take down some trees touching his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had gotten in his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a bunch of money having somebody trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and then had to re-insulate and rewire the attic. In situations where limbs are actually in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged roof shingles or home siding.
Occasionally when a tree is too close to a property we may just trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if several limbs need to be cleared away it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be far better to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or just look for 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 prevent this other than tree removal it is always advisable to carry out some research or consult with a landscape professional when deciding on a location for trees around a home or driveway. Often people fail to understand the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they might plan to sell theÂ building before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to have to find a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: As a result of their size trees can overshadow small plants. Home owners should choose bushes or shrubs which will tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they will have to live with a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well under a tree could be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only do well in full sunlight. Even though it may be more affordable to remove the tree| if you really like the tree you might just consult 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 correct location may improve a homes value the wrong tree can hurt property’s value. In many cases we can improve the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is merely getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. Having said that sometimes to enhance the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees often 2 things can not inhabit the same site. This is the scenario of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Often in these circumstances tree removal is the only choice and if you are feeling depressed about removing your favorite tree you can always plant a different one. Even though it does not mature in our life time our kids or someone else’s children can take joy in it.
Liability issues: Our people are certainly not attorneys but this is the way fallen trees are ordinarily interpreted according to the law. In the case that the tree was not obviously dead or diseased you are not considered to be neglectful or at fault for the tree dropping down. You dispose of the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is liable with regard to tree removal and repair works to his premises. You are actually only responsible for your residential property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the neighbor could file suit and several insurance policies have a stipulation pointing out that they are not responsible for dead or diseased trees. If this were to happen you may be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s residential property and your insurance will not pay if they have a clause concerning dead or diseased trees. On the flip side if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to safeguard yourself is to advise them in writing and let them know 99 % of professional tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your house you can use the written notice to position the cost of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know many individuals that like to clean out gutters. We really could start a gutter cleaning company with the amount of calls we receive seeking out a good affordable gutter cleaner. Everybody wants to have a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the cheap kind I know aren’t insured and for that reason I refuse to recommend them. However clogged gutters are more frustrating than not having gutters whatsoever. Congested downspouts trigger the water to overflow onto 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 shortly 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 remove trees because some people lay awake on blustery night-times as a result of a specific tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over their property. The fact is the only way to guarantee a tree will never fall on the house is to take out all large trees within striking distance. It can be costly to remove a lot of trees near your Central Valley NY home and sometimes this eliminates the fear but leaves some regret. Often fears can be calmed by having a tree service expert examine the trees to make sure none of these have any defects that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree needs to be removed you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Just simply plant a fresh native tree at a more desirable location on your estate and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you do not have room 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 every dollar donated and you can also specify the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a few seeded in a non harvest location within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
