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 Fort Montgomery 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 still a good idea to take any specific tree that has recently lost a pretty big limb checked out by a tree professional that can do a risk assessment on the tree to ensure that 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 most true tree service professionals offer free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a residence is a total “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade which trees provide lowers cooling bills in the summertime and provides a barrier against the winter wind. However the drop in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance costs to grow (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees next to houses can also make it possible for unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter the attic. A client of ours had us remove some trees touching on his house owing to a family of squirrels which had gotten in his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a lot of money having someone trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then afterwards had to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In scenarios where limbs are actually in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can result in damaged shingles or home siding.
Occasionally whenever a tree is very close to a property we will be able to just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from your home but if several limbs need to be cleared away it may cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be better to remove the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or just pick a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots may clog up your septic system| or they might crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or foundation. Since there is no way to stop this other than tree removal it is always prudent to do some research or consult with a landscape company 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 might plan to sell theÂ building before it reaches maturity leaving the subsequent owner to require to find a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Because of their proportions trees can overshadow small plants. Homeowners should certainly go for bushes or shrubs which have the ability to tolerate the competition for sun light and water or they have to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well underneath a tree could be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some lawns only prosper in full sunshine. Although it may be cheaper to remove the tree| if you really love the tree you could seek advice from a landscape company about changing to a different type of grass to save the tree.
Impact on home value: While the right tree in the proper location may boost a homes value the wrong tree can impact 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 removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your home from the road. Having said that in some cases to enhance the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically 2 things can not really inhabit the very same spot. This is the scenario of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Often in these instances tree removal is the sole alternative and if you are feeling down about removing your favorite tree you can always plant another one. Albeit it may not mature in our life time our kids or somebody else’s children can take joy in it.
Liability issues: We are certainly not lawyers but this is the way in which falling trees are usually interpreted based upon the law. In the case that the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not deemed to be negligent or liable for the tree falling. You clear away the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is responsible for tree removal and repairs to his property. You are actually only liable for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the neighbor could sue and a few insurance policies have a provision pointing out that these companies are not responsible for dead or diseased trees. If this were to happen you might be held accountable for damages to the neighbor’s property and your insurance will not pay if they have a clause concerning dead or diseased trees. On the other hand if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to safeguard yourself is to notify them in writing and let them know 99 % of competent tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your residence you can use the written notification to position the fee of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know of many individuals who like to clean out gutters. We literally could start a gutter cleaning company with the quantity of calls we receive searching for a good inexpensive gutter cleaning service. Everyone would like a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the inexpensive ones I know typically aren’t insured and as a result I refuse to refer them. At the same time clogged gutters are much worse compared to not possessing gutters whatsoever. Blocked downspouts trigger the water to overflow onto the face(fascia) boards and water caught behind the gutters causes them 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 shortly after all the leaves have fallen and if 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 blustery nights because of a specific tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their house. Unfortunately the sole way to guarantee a tree will never fall on the home is to remove all large trees within striking distance. It can possibly be downright costly to remove a load of trees near your Fort Montgomery NY residence and often this gets rid of the fear but leaves some regret. Commonly fears could be appeased by having a tree service expert evaluate the trees to ensure none of these have any flaws that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree has to be cleared away you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. Simply plant a fresh native tree at a more desirable location on your estate and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you don’t have room on your property but still would like to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They sow a tree for every dollar donated and you can also specify the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a couple sown in a non harvest area within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
