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: Occasionally storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is a good practice to take any specific tree that has likely lost a pretty big limb examined by a tree professional who may do a risk assessment on the tree to check more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service free of cost. 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 home is a total “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade that trees provide decreases cooling costs in the summer and provides a buffer from the winter wind. Meanwhile the drop in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenditures to grow (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees close to houses can also help unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to get into the attic. A customer of ours had us remove some trees touching his house due to the fact that a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a lot of money having somebody trap and remove the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and afterwards had to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In scenarios where limbs are effectively touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can cause damaged roof shingles or siding.
Occasionally when a tree is very near to a house we will be able to simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if lots of limbs need to be removed it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be far better to remove the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or just simply choose a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots may clog up your septic system| or they can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or property. Since there is no way to stop this other than tree removal it is always prudent to conduct some research or consult a landscape professional when deciding on a location for trees around a property or driveway. Often people fail to anticipate 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 new owner to require to find a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Thanks to their overall size trees can overshadow small plants. Property owners should pick bushes or shrubs which are able to tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they will have to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well under a tree can be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only prosper in full sunshine. Whilst it may be less costly to take out the tree| if you really like the tree you might just seek advice from a landscape company about switching to a different sort of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the best tree in the most appropriate location can improve a property’s value the inappropriate tree can damage property’s value. Often we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. Unfortunately at times to improve the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees at times two things can not occupy the same area. This is the scenario of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Usually in these scenarios tree removal is the only alternative and if you are really feeling down about clearing away your favorite tree you can always plant another one. Even if it does not mature in our life-time our children or somebody else’s children can appreciate it.
Liability issues: Our people are certainly not lawyer or attorneys however this is how fallen trees are usually interpreted based upon the law. If the tree was not clearly dead or diseased you are not considered to be neglectful or liable for the tree falling. You clear away the chunk of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is responsible with respect to tree removal and repair works to his property. You are actually only responsible for your residential property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the next-door neighbor could file suit and a few insurance policies have a provision stating that they are exempt for deceased or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you can be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s property and your insurance will not pay if they have a stipulation concerning dead or diseased trees. On the other side 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 notification to place the expense of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know many property owners that like to clean gutters. We literally could start a gutter maintenance business with the amount of phone calls we get searching for a good cheap gutter cleaner. Almost everyone wants a cheap gutter cleaner but all the inexpensive kind I know aren’t insured and that is why I refuse to refer them. At the same time clogged gutters are much worse compared to not having gutters whatsoever. Congested 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. Alternatively clean them yearly right 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 simply because some people lay awake on blustery nights as a result of a particular tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their house. The fact is the only way to insure a tree does not fall on the home is to clear away all large trees within close quarters. It may be expensive to remove a number of trees near your Fort Montgomery NY residential property and often this alleviates the fear but leaves behind some remorse. Commonly fears could be calmed by having a tree service company evaluate the trees to make certain none of these have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. In the event that a tree needs to be cleared away 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 space on your property but still wish 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 specify the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a couple cultivated in a non harvest area within New York or even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
