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: 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 each and every tree that has definitely lost a substantial limb evaluated by a tree professional who should do a risk assessment on the tree to verify 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 warrant tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals provide free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a home is a real “catch 22” state of affairs. On the one hand the shade which trees render lowers cooling bills in the summertime and provides a barrier against the winter wind. Meanwhile the drop in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenses to grow (this is covered 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 into 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 spent a lot of money having someone trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and then had to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In cases where limbs are effectively in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can result in damaged roof shingles or siding.
Often if a tree is too near to a property we will be able to simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if several limbs need to be cleared away it could 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 go for a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will clog up your septic system| or they could crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or building. Since there is no way to stop this other than tree removal it is always best to carry out some research or hire a landscape professional when choosing on a location for trees around a home or driveway. Often people fail to envisage 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 new owner to have to pay a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their scale trees can dominate smaller plants. Property owners should certainly choose bushes or shrubs which will tolerate the competition for sun light and water or they have to live with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that isn’t performing well beneath a tree can be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some grasses only do well in full sunshine. Whilst it may be more affordable to remove the tree| if you really like the tree you may seek advice from a landscape expert about changing to a different sort of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the most ideal tree in the right location can certainly increase a property’s market value the inappropriate tree can hurt property’s value. Oftentimes we can improve the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is merely removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your house from the road. However in certain cases to improve the curb appeal we will have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees often two things can not inhabit the very same location. Such is the case of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Normally in these scenarios tree removal is the sole solution and if you are feeling depressed about getting rid of your best-loved tree you can always plant a different one. Even though it may not mature in our life time our children or somebody else’s kids may take joy in it.
Liability issues: are not attorneys however here is the way in which fallen trees are typically interpreted based upon the law. Assuming that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not deemed to be negligent or liable for the tree falling. You clear away the section of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is responsible with regard to tree removal and repair works to his premises. You are only responsible for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the next-door neighbor could file suit and some insurance policies have a provision pointing out that these companies are exempt for perished or unhealthy 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 other hand if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the best way to protect yourself is to advise 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 notification to place the cost of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know of many individuals who like to clean gutters. We actually could start a gutter cleaning company with the amount of calls we get trying to find 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 that is why I refuse to recommend them. Unfortunately clogged gutters are much worse than not having gutters whatsoever. 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 install 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 specialist.
Peace of Mind: We often times remove trees simply because some people lay awake on blustery night-times as a result of a specific tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their property. The fact is the only way to make certain a tree doesn’t fall on the home is to remove all large trees inside of striking distance. It can be downright costly to remove a lot of trees near your Fort Montgomery NY residence and often this eases the fear but leaves some remorse. Commonly fears could be calmed by having a tree service expert evaluate the trees to make sure none of them have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. In the event that a tree has to be removed you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree destroyer. Just 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 want to make a contribution you can make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They plant a tree for every dollar donated and you can even choose the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a couple seeded in a non harvest location within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
