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 Chester 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 a good idea to have any tree that has definitely lost a large limb examined by a tree professional that can possibly do a risk assessment on the tree to make sure 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 necessitate 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 lowers cooling costs in the summertime and provides a buffer against the winter wind. On the other hand the reduction in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance expenses to grow (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees near to houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter into 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 trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a lot of money having somebody trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then afterwards had to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In cases where limbs are effectively in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or home siding.
In some cases whenever a tree is too near to a property we will be able to simply trim or cut back the tree limbs away from your home but if lots of limbs need to be taken off it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be far better to remove the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or just simply choose on a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will clog up your septic system| or they could crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or foundation. Since there is no alternative way to stop this other than tree removal it is always best to conduct some research or consult with a landscape company when choosing on a location for trees around a home or driveway. Often people fail to comprehend the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they may plan to sell theÂ house before it reaches maturity leaving the new owner to require to hire a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their proportions trees can overshadow much smaller plants. Property owners should select bushes or shrubs which will tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they have to live with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that is not performing well underneath a tree can be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only do well in full sun light. While it may be less costly to take out the tree| if you love the tree you might consult a landscape professional about changing to a different kind of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the perfect tree in the most appropriate location may increase a homes market value the wrong tree can damage a home’s value. Oftentimes we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is simply getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your home from the road. Unfortunately sometimes to boost the curb appeal we have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes 2 things can not really occupy the same spot. Such is the instance of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Usually in these circumstances tree removal is the only choice and if you are really feeling depressed about extracting your treasured tree you can always plant another one. Even if it doesn’t mature in our life time our kids or somebody else’s kids may well appreciate it.
Liability issues: We are not lawyers but this is how fallen trees are often interpreted according to the law. Assuming that the tree was not clearly 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 neighbor is liable with respect to tree removal and repairs to his premises. You are actually only liable for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or unhealthy the neighbor could sue and some insurance policies have a clause pointing out that they are exempt for lifeless or diseased trees. If this were to happen you can be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s residential property and your insurance will not pay if they have a stipulation about dead or diseased trees. On the other hand 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 residence you can use the written notice to position the fee of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know many individuals who like to clean gutters. We really could start a gutter cleaning company with the quantity of phone calls we receive searching for a good low-cost gutter cleaner. Every one wants to have a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the low-priced ones I know typically aren’t insured and that is why I refuse to refer them. At the same time clogged gutters are worse compared to not having gutters whatsoever. Clogged downspouts cause the water to overflow onto 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 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 specific tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their property. The fact is the only way to make certain a tree will never fall on the house is to take down all large trees within close quarters. It can possibly be costly to remove a bunch of trees near your Chester NY house and often this eases the fear but leaves behind some regret. Commonly fears could be calmed by having a tree service expert assess the trees to make sure none of them have any defects that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree has to be cleared away you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Just plant a brand new native tree at a better location on your property 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 make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They grow a tree for every single dollar donated and you can even choose the location by US State or country. Chop down a tree in your yard and have a few sown in a non harvest area within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
