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: Sometimes storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is a good idea to take each and every tree that has likely lost a sizable limb checked out by a tree professional that can do a risk assessment on the tree to verify 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 warrant tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals carry out 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 provide lowers cooling costs in the summer months and provides a barrier against the winter wind. However the reduction in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance costs to grow (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees next to houses can also help unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter the attic. A homeowner of ours had us take down some trees touching his house due to the fact that 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 somebody trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and afterwards needed to re-insulate and rewire the attic. In cases where limbs are actually touching the house the constant swaying of the trees can cause damaged shingles or home siding.
At times whenever a tree is too close to a property we may just trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if a lot 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 take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or basically choose on a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots can sometimes clog up your septic system| or they might crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or foundation. Since there is no alternative way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always advised to conduct some research or consult with a landscape company 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 just plan to sell theÂ house before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to require to pay a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Because of their proportions trees can dominate smaller plants. Home-owners should decide on bushes or shrubs that can tolerate the competition for sun light and water or they have to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that is not performing well beneath a tree can be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only flourish in full sunlight. Whilst it may be less costly to remove the tree| if you cherish the tree you might just speak with a landscape expert about switching to a different type of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the right tree in the most appropriate location can easily improve a homes value the wrong tree can impact a home’s value. In many cases we can enhance the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is just simply clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your home from the road. However in certain cases to enhance the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes two things can not occupy the very same area. Such is the instance of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Often in these situations tree removal is the only alternative and if you are feeling down about getting rid of your favorite tree you can always plant another one. Even though it doesn’t mature in our life time our children or somebody else’s children can enjoy it.
Liability issues: We are not legal professionals however here is the way falling trees are basically translated according to the law. In the event that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be negligent or at fault for the tree falling. You clear away the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is responsible for tree removal and repair works to his property. You are only liable for your property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is dead or unhealthy the next-door neighbor could file suit and some insurance policies have a provision saying that they are not responsible for dead 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 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 find out 99 % of professional tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your residence you can use the written notification to place the fee of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know of many people that like to clean out gutters. We actually could start a gutter cleaning company with the number of phone calls we receive seeking out a good affordable gutter cleaner. Everybody would like a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the inexpensive ones I know typically aren’t insured and consequently I refuse to recommend them. Nevertheless clogged gutters are much worse than not possessing gutters at all. Clogged up downspouts cause the water to overflow into 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. Or else clean them yearly after all the leaves have fallen and if you get fed up with that we are a tree removal specialist.
Peace of Mind: We frequently remove trees because some people lay awake on windy night-times because of a specific tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their house. The fact is the only way to make certain a tree will never fall on the house is to clear away all large trees within striking distance. It could be downright costly to remove a load of trees near your Cornwall NY house and often this alleviates the fear but leaves some regret. Typically fears could be appeased by having a tree service pro examine the trees to make certain none of them have any defects that would make them a higher than normal threat. In the event that a tree needs to be removed you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. Just plant a fresh native tree at a much better location on your property 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 make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They plant a tree for every single dollar donated and you can also choose the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a couple sown in a non harvest location within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
