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 On Hudson 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 idea to take any specific tree that has definitely lost a significant limb evaluated by a tree professional that can possibly do a risk assessment on the tree to check more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service free of charge. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always require 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 total “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade that trees render decreases cooling bills in the summer and provides a buffer from the winter wind. Meanwhile the drop in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenses to increase (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees close to houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to gain access to the attic. A client of ours had us remove some trees touching his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had gotten in his attic and tramped down 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 had to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In situations where limbs are effectively in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or siding.
Sometimes when a tree is too near to a house we will be able to simply trim or cut back the tree limbs away from your home but if many limbs need to be removed it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be better to remove the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or simply make a decision on a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will 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 prudent to carry out some research or hire a landscape company when choosing on a location for trees around a house or driveway. Often people fail to understand the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they just plan to sell theÂ building before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to have to hire a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Because of their scale trees can dominate smaller plants. Homeowners should certainly choose bushes or shrubs that will tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they have to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that isn’t performing well under a tree can be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some grasses only do well in full direct sunlight. Although it may be less expensive to remove the tree| if you really love the tree you might seek advice from a landscape professional about switching to a different kind of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the best tree in the most appropriate location can increase a homes worth the inappropriate tree can damage a home’s value. In many cases we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your house from the road. Having said that in certain cases to improve the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes two things can not really occupy the very same location. This is the case of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Generally in these situations tree removal is the only alternative and if you are feeling depressed about clearing away your treasured tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it will not mature in our lifetime our children or somebody else’s kids may well take joy in it.
Liability issues: We are not lawyers however here is how falling trees are typically translated based upon the law. Assuming that the tree was not clearly dead or diseased you are not deemed to be negligent or liable for the tree dropping down. You remove the chunk of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is obligated with respect to tree removal and repair works to his premises. You are actually only liable for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the next-door neighbor could sue and some insurance policies have a stipulation saying that these companies are exempt for perished or diseased 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 clause about dead or diseased trees. On the flip side if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to protect yourself is to notify them in writing and let them know 99 % of professional tree services will give a free assessment. 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 do not know of many property owners that like to clean gutters. We really could start a gutter cleaning business with the quantity of calls we get looking for a good inexpensive gutter cleaner. Almost everyone would like a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the inexpensive ones I know typically aren’t insured and for this reason I refuse to recommend them. Nevertheless clogged gutters are more frustrating than not having gutters whatsoever. Clogged downspouts cause the water to overflow onto the face(fascia) boards and water caught behind the gutters causes these 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 after all the leaves have fallen and if you get fed up with that we are a tree removal expert.
Peace of Mind: We frequently remove trees because some people lay awake on blustery nights as a result of a particular tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over their residence. Unfortunately the sole way to make sure a tree will never fall on the home is to clear away all big trees within close quarters. It can be pricey to remove a number of trees near your Cornwall On Hudson NY residential property and often this eases the fear but leaves behind some remorse. Typically fears can be relieved by having a tree service professional assess 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 requires to be removed you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. Simply plant a new native tree at a better location on your property 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 single 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 cultivated in a non harvest site within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
