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: Usually storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is still a good idea to take any specific tree that has likely lost a large limb examined by a tree professional that should do a risk evaluation on the tree to ensure that more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service free of charge. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always warrant tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals carry out free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a property is a real “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade that trees provide decreases cooling expenditures in the summer and provides a buffer against the winter wind. On the other hand the drop in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance bills to increase (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees near to houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to get into the attic. A customer 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 trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a bunch of money having someone trap and remove the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then needed to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In scenarios where limbs are effectively touching the house the constant swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or siding.
Sometimes whenever a tree is very near to a home we may simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if many limbs need to be taken off it could cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be far better to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or just select 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 foundation. Since there is no other to prevent this other than tree removal it is always prudent to conduct some research or consult a landscape company when choosing on a location for trees around a home or driveway. Often people fail to understand 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 subsequent owner to require to find a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Thanks to their scale trees can dominate small plants. Home-owners should pick bushes or shrubs which 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 isn’t performing well under a tree could be assisted by stepping up water and fertilizer but some grasses only prosper in full sunlight. While it may be less expensive to remove the tree| if you cherish the tree you might 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 right location can boost a property’s resale value the wrong tree can impact property’s value. In many cases we can improve the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is merely clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your house from the road. Having said that at times to improve the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees at times two things can not inhabit the same spot. Such is the case of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Often in these scenarios tree removal is the sole choice and if you are feeling depressed about extracting your best-loved tree you can always plant a different one. Albeit it may not mature in our lifespan our children or someone else’s children may take joy in it.
Liability issues: We are not lawyers however here is how falling trees are ordinarily interpreted according to the law. On the assumption that the tree was not clearly dead or diseased you are not considered to be neglectful or at fault for the tree falling. You clear away the chunk of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is responsible with regard to tree removal and repair works to his premises. You are only liable for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the next-door neighbor could sue and some insurance policies have a clause stating that they are not responsible for dead or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you may be held accountable for damages 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 neighbor with a dead tree the best way to protect yourself is to notify them in writing and let them know 99 % of competent tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your house you can use the written notice to place the cost of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know of many individuals who like to clean out gutters. We really could start a gutter cleaning operation with the amount of phone calls we get searching for a good affordable gutter cleaner. Everybody wants a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the inexpensive ones I know typically aren’t insured and therefore I refuse to refer them. Unfortunately clogged gutters are worse than not having gutters at all. Blocked 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. 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 remove trees because some people lay awake on stormy nights as a result of a certain tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over their house. The fact is the only way to make certain a tree does not fall on the house is to take down all big trees within close quarters. It can be costly to remove a number of trees near your Cornwall NY house and sometimes this eases the fear but leaves some remorse. Commonly fears can be calmed by having a tree service professional assess the trees to make certain none of them have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. In the event that a tree has to be taken down you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. Just simply plant a brand-new native tree at a much better location on your property and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you don’t have space on your property but still want to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They plant a tree for each dollar donated and you can even choose the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a few planted in a non harvest place within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
