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: Occasionally storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is still a good practice to take each and every tree that has likely lost a significant limb assessed by a tree professional that may do a risk evaluation on the tree to check 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 require 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” scenario. On the one hand the shade which trees provide decreases cooling costs in the hot months and provides a barrier against the winter wind. Meanwhile the reduction in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance bills to grow (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees next to houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to get into the attic. A client of ours had us remove some trees touching on his house due to the fact that a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a bunch of money having someone else trap and remove the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and afterwards had to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In scenarios where limbs are effectively touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can cause damaged roof shingles or home siding.
At times when a tree is very near to a property we will be able to just trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if a lot of limbs need to be removed it might cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be far better to take out 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 could crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or property. Since there is no way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always advised to conduct some research or refer to a landscape professional when choosing on a location for trees around a building or driveway. Often people fail to comprehend 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 hire a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Thanks to their overall size trees can overshadow smaller plants. Homeowners ought to pick bushes or shrubs that will tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they need to deal with a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that is not performing well under a tree could be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only flourish in full direct sunlight. Even though it may be less expensive to remove the tree| if you really like the tree you might speak with a landscape company about switching to a different kind of grass to save the tree.
Impact on home value: While the right tree in the correct location can boost a homes value the inappropriate tree can damage property’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 the house from the road. However sometimes to enhance the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically 2 things can not really inhabit the same site. Such is the instance of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Normally in these scenarios tree removal is the only option and if you are really feeling depressed about taking out your favorite tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it doesn’t mature in our lifetime our children or somebody else’s kids may well enjoy it.
Liability issues: We are not legal representatives however this is insights on how fallen trees are normally interpreted according to the law. If the tree was not clearly dead or diseased you are not considered to be negligent or at fault for the tree dropping down. You remove the part of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is responsible for tree removal and repairs to his property. You are only responsible for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is perished or unhealthy the next-door neighbor could sue and a few insurance policies have a clause pointing out that they are exempt for perished or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you might be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s residential property and your insurance will not pay if they have a stipulation concerning dead or diseased trees. On the flip side if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the best way to protect yourself is to advise them in writing and let them find out 99 % of competent tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your residence you can use the written notice to place the cost of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know many homeowners that like to clean out gutters. We really could start a gutter maintenance business with the number of telephone calls we get seeking out a good cheap gutter cleaning service. Everyone would like a cheap gutter cleaner but all the inexpensive ones I know typically aren’t insured and for that reason I refuse to refer them. At the same time clogged gutters are more frustrating than not possessing gutters whatsoever. Clogged up downspouts trigger the water to overflow into the face(fascia) boards and water trapped 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. 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 specialist.
Peace of Mind: We often times remove trees simply because some people lay awake on windy night-times because of a certain tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over the house. The fact is the sole way to make sure a tree will never fall on the house is to clear away all large trees within striking distance. It can possibly be costly to remove a number of trees near your Chester NY residence and often this alleviates the fear but leaves some regret. Typically fears could be relieved by having a tree service company assess the trees to ensure none of these have any defects that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree has to be taken down you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree destroyer. Simply plant a brand new native tree at a better location on your estate and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you don’t 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 choose the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a couple planted in a non harvest area within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
