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 Greenwood Lake 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 a good practice to take any tree that has likely lost a significant limb looked at by a tree professional who can possibly do a risk assessment on the tree to make sure more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service free of cost. Injured trees are most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always necessitate tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals perform free inspections.

Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a home is a real “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade which trees render reduces cooling costs in the summer time and provides a buffer from the winter wind. Meanwhile 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 permit unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter into the attic. A homeowner 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 trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a bunch of money having someone else trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then afterwards needed to re-insulate and rewire the attic. In scenarios where limbs are effectively in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can lead to damaged roof shingles or home siding.

At times whenever a tree is too close to a property we may just trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if several limbs need to be cleared away it could cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be far better to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or basically select a more suitable location.

Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots can sometimes clog up your septic system| or they might crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or foundation. Since there is no alternative way to stop this other than tree removal it is always prudent to carry out some research or refer to a landscape professional when deciding on a location for trees around a home or driveway. Often people fail to understand the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they might plan to sell the house before it reaches maturity leaving the subsequent owner to require to locate a professional tree service to remove the tree.

Impact on surrounding landscape: Thanks to their scale trees can dominate much smaller plants. Property owners should pick bushes or shrubs that are able to tolerate the competition for sun light and water or they will have to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that is not performing well beneath a tree can be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some lawns only flourish in full sunlight. Although it may be less expensive to remove the tree| if you cherish the tree you could consult a landscape company about changing to a different kind of grass to save the tree.

Impact on home value:  While the perfect tree in the right location can improve a property’s market value the wrong tree can damage property’s value. In many cases we can boost the curb appeal of a house 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. Unfortunately in certain cases to improve the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.

Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees often two things can not really occupy the very same area. This is the scenario of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Oftentimes in these circumstances tree removal is the sole solution and if you are really feeling depressed about removing your treasured tree you can always plant a different one. Albeit it may not mature in our lifetime our children or somebody else’s kids can take joy in it.

Liability issues: We are not lawyers however here is the way falling trees are normally interpreted according to the law. Assuming that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not deemed to be neglectful or at fault for the tree falling. You remove the chunk of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is liable with respect to tree removal and repair works to his property. You are actually only responsible for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the neighbor could sue and a few insurance policies have a clause stating that these companies are exempt for deceased 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 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 find out 99 % of competent tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your home you can use the written notice to place the cost of removal on your neighbor.

Maintenance: I don’t know many homeowners who like to clean gutters. We actually could start a gutter cleaning operation with the quantity of phone calls we receive trying to find a good low-cost gutter cleaning service. Almost everyone would like a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-priced kind I know typically 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 at all. Clogged up downspouts cause 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. Otherwise clean them yearly right 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 because some people lay awake on windy night-times because of a certain tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their residence. Unfortunately the only way to make sure a tree does not fall on the house is to take out all big trees within striking distance. It can be costly to remove a number of trees near your Greenwood Lake NY home and sometimes this eliminates the fear but leaves behind some remorse. Commonly fears can be appeased by having a tree service pro examine the trees to make certain none of these have any defects that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree needs 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 much 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 want to make a contribution you can make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They grow a tree for each dollar donated and you can also choose the location by US State or country. Chop down 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.
