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 Goshen 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 lost a substantial limb surveyed by a tree professional that should do a risk assessment on the tree to verify more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service free of charge. Injured trees are most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always warrant tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals make available free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a property is a real “catch 22” state of affairs. On the one hand the shade which trees render decreases cooling expenditures in the hot months and provides a buffer against the winter wind. However the drop in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance bills to increase (this is covered in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees next to houses can also enable unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter 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 bunch of money having someone else trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then had to re-insulate and re-wire the loft. In scenarios where limbs are actually in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or siding.
Sometimes if a tree is very close to a home we may just trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if a lot of limbs need to be removed it may cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be more effective to remove the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or simply pick and choose a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will clog up your septic system| or they can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or home. Since there is no alternative way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always best to conduct some research or consult with a landscape company when choosing on a location for trees around a house or driveway. Often people fail to comprehend the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they may plan to sell theÂ house 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: Because of their size trees can overshadow smaller plants. Home-owners should certainly go with bushes or shrubs that are able to tolerate the competition for sun light and water or they need to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that isn’t performing well underneath a tree can be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only flourish in full sunlight. Whilst it may be less costly to remove the tree| if you love the tree you could consult a landscape expert about switching to a different type of grass to save the tree.
Impact on home value: While the right tree in the right location can easily improve a homes value the inappropriate tree can hurt a home’s value. Often we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is merely clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your property from the road. However sometimes to improve the curb appeal we will have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically 2 things can not inhabit the very same area. This is the case of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Generally in these instances tree removal is the only alternative and if you are feeling down about taking out your best-loved tree you can always plant another one. Even if it does not mature in our lifespan our kids or someone else’s children can appreciate it.
Liability issues: are certainly not attorneys however this is the way in which falling trees are ordinarily translated based upon the law. Assuming that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be neglectful 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 obligated when it comes to tree removal and repairs to his property. You are actually only responsible for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the next-door neighbor could sue and several insurance policies have a clause saying that these companies are not responsible for perished or diseased trees. If this were to happen you may 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 best way to protect 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 home you can use the written notification to place the fee of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know many homeowners who like to clean out gutters. We really could start a gutter maintenance operation with the number of calls we get trying to find a good cheap gutter cleaner. Every one wants a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the low-priced kind I know aren’t insured and for this reason I refuse to refer them. However clogged gutters are much worse than not possessing gutters whatsoever. Clogged up downspouts trigger the water to overflow into the face(fascia) boards and water caught behind the gutters causes them to rot. So that requires you to put in a gutter cap like http://www.leafguard.com or http://www.gutterguardian.com. Otherwise 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 simply because some people lay awake on stormy night-times as a result of a certain tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over the house. The fact is the only way to insure a tree will never fall on the house is to take down all large trees inside of close quarters. It may be downright costly to remove a number of trees near your Goshen NY house and sometimes this gets rid of the fear but leaves behind some regret. Typically fears could be calmed by having a tree service expert examine the trees to make certain none of these have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree requires to be removed you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree executioner. Just simply plant a fresh native tree at a far better location on your property and you are doing your part to renew the growth cycle. If you do not have space on your property but still would like to make a contribution you can make 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. Cut a tree in your yard and have a couple seeded in a non harvest location within New York or even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
