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 Cornwall 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 lost a sizable limb looked over by a tree professional that can do a risk assessment on the tree to make sure more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service for free. Injured trees are more 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 property is a real “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade that trees render decreases cooling bills in the summertime and provides a buffer against the winter wind. Meanwhile the drop in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenditures to grow (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees alongside houses can also permit unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter into the attic. A customer of ours had us remove some trees touching his house because a family of squirrels which had penetrated his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a bunch of money having someone else trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and then needed to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In scenarios where limbs are actually in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can result in damaged shingles or siding.
In some cases whenever a tree is too close to a home we will be able to simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if many limbs need to be taken off it might cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be more effective to remove the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or simply opt 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 property. Since there is no other to stop this other than tree removal it is always advised to conduct some research or hire a landscape professional 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 property before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to require to pay a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Because of their overall size trees can overshadow much smaller plants. Property owners should go for bushes or shrubs that are able to tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they have to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that is not performing well underneath a tree can be assisted by stepping up water and fertilizer but some grasses only flourish in full direct sunlight. While it may be less costly to take out the tree| if you really like the tree you could consult a landscape professional about changing to a different kind of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the perfect tree in the appropriate location can certainly increase a property’s value the wrong tree can hurt a home’s value. In many cases we can boost the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. Unfortunately at times to enhance the curb appeal we have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees often 2 things can not occupy the very same site. This is the case of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Oftentimes in these cases tree removal is the sole alternative and if you are feeling depressed about getting rid of your best-loved tree you can always plant a different one. Even though it will not mature in our life-time our children or someone else’s children can appreciate it.
Liability issues: We are certainly not lawyer or attorneys however here is insights on how falling trees are basically translated based upon the law. Assuming that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be negligent or to blame for the tree dropping down. You dispose of the chunk of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is liable when it comes to tree removal and repairs to his property. You are actually only responsible for your residential property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the next-door neighbor could sue and some insurance policies have a provision pointing out that they are not responsible for lifeless or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you could 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 other side 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 know 99 % of professional tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your residence you can use the written notice to position the cost of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know of many property owners that like to clean gutters. We actually could start a gutter cleaning operation with the number of calls we get looking for a good inexpensive gutter cleaner. Almost everyone wants a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-priced kind I know typically aren’t insured and consequently I refuse to refer them. Nevertheless clogged gutters are much worse compared to not possessing gutters whatsoever. Congested downspouts cause the water to overflow onto the face(fascia) boards and water trapped 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. Otherwise clean them yearly right 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 oftentimes remove trees because some people lay awake on stormy nights as a result of a specific tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over their house. Unfortunately the only way to insure a tree does not fall on the house is to clear away all big trees inside of striking distance. It can possibly be costly to remove a great deal of trees near your Cornwall NY residence and often this eliminates the fear but leaves some regret. Commonly fears can be calmed by having a tree service expert assess the trees to make certain none of these have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree needs to be taken down you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree destroyer. 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 would like to make a contribution you can make 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. Cut a tree in your yard and have a couple planted in a non harvest location within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
