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 a good practice to take every tree that has lost a substantial limb checked out by a tree professional who should do a risk assessment on the tree to make sure more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service for free. Injured trees are most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always necessitate 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 real “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade which trees render lowers cooling bills in the summertime and provides a buffer against the winter wind. However the reduction in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance expenses to increase (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees alongside houses can also enable unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter into the attic. A client of ours had us take down some trees touching his house because a family of squirrels which had gotten in his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a lot of money having somebody trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then afterwards needed to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In situations where limbs are effectively touching the house the constant swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or siding.
Occasionally when a tree is too near to a home we will be able to simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if a lot of limbs need to be removed it can 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 can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or building. Since there is no alternative way to stop this other than tree removal it is always advised to conduct some research or consult with 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 may plan to sell theÂ home before it reaches maturity leaving the new owner to require to find a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Thanks to their overall size trees can overshadow small plants. Homeowners should go for bushes or shrubs that will tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they need to deal with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that is not performing well beneath a tree can be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some lawns only prosper in full sun light. Although it may be more affordable to take out the tree| if you enjoy the tree you could speak with a landscape expert about changing to a different type of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the most ideal tree in the proper location can increase a property’s value the inappropriate tree can damage a home’s value. Oftentimes we can boost the curb appeal of a building 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. Having said that in some cases to enhance the curb appeal we will have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees at times 2 things can not really inhabit the very same location. Such is the scenario of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Often in these scenarios tree removal is the only alternative and if you are feeling depressed about clearing away your beloved tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it doesn’t mature in our lifespan our children or somebody else’s kids may appreciate it.
Liability issues: are not lawyers but this is how fallen trees are basically translated based upon the law. Assuming that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be neglectful or at fault for the tree dropping down. You remove the part of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is obligated with respect to tree removal and repairs to his premises. You are actually only responsible for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or unhealthy the next-door neighbor could sue and a few insurance policies have a clause pointing out that these companies are exempt for perished or diseased trees. If this were to happen you could be held accountable for damages to the neighbor’s property and your insurance will not pay if they have a stipulation 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 notify 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 home you can use the written notice to position the fee of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know of many property owners that like to clean out gutters. We really could start a gutter cleaning business with the number of telephone calls we get looking for a good cheap gutter cleaner. Everybody would like a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the cheap ones I know typically aren’t insured and therefore I refuse to refer them. Unfortunately clogged gutters are worse compared to not having gutters whatsoever. Clogged up downspouts trigger the water to overflow into the face(fascia) boards and water caught behind the gutters causes these to rot. So that requires you to put in a gutter cap like http://www.leafguard.com or http://www.gutterguardian.com. Alternatively clean them yearly after all the leaves have fallen and in the event that you get fed up with that we are a tree removal expert.
Peace of Mind: We often remove trees simply because some people lay awake on windy nights due to a specific tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their property. Unfortunately the sole way to guarantee a tree does not fall on the house is to take down all big trees inside of close quarters. It can possibly be pricey to remove a number of trees near your Chester NY residence and often this gets rid of the fear but leaves some remorse. Typically fears can be calmed by having a tree service pro inspect the trees to ensure none of these have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. In the event that a tree has to be cleared away you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. Just simply plant a fresh native tree at a much better location on your estate 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 make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They plant a tree for every dollar donated and you can also specify the location by US State or country. Chop down a tree in your yard and have a couple seeded in a non harvest site within New York or even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
