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: Occasionally storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is a good idea to take any specific tree that has lost a sizable limb surveyed by a tree professional that can possibly do a risk evaluation on the tree to verify more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service free of charge. 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 house is a real “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade that trees provide reduces cooling bills in the summertime and provides a buffer from the winter wind. However the decrease in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance costs to grow (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees beside houses can also help unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter into the attic. A customer of ours had us take down some trees touching on his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and trampled 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| and afterwards had to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In cases where limbs are actually touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or siding.
Occasionally whenever a tree is too near to a house we may simply trim or cut back the tree limbs away from your home but if many limbs need to be cleared away it could cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be more effective to remove the tree and plant another 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 can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or foundation. Since there is no way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always prudent to do some research or refer to a landscape company when choosing 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 may plan to sell theÂ building before it reaches maturity leaving the new owner to have to hire a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their overall size trees can overshadow much smaller plants. Property owners should go with bushes or shrubs that are able to tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they will have to deal with a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that isn’t performing well under a tree could be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only do well in full sun light. Although it may be more affordable to remove the tree| if you enjoy the tree you could consult a landscape expert about switching to a different type of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the most ideal tree in the proper location can easily increase a homes worth the inappropriate tree can impact a home’s value. In many cases we can improve the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is simply clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your property from the road. However in certain cases to improve the curb appeal we have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically 2 things can not really occupy the same spot. This is the instance of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Usually in these scenarios tree removal is the only solution and if you are really feeling down about getting rid of your beloved tree you can always plant a different one. Albeit it does not mature in our life time our kids or somebody else’s children can appreciate it.
Liability issues: are certainly not attorneys but here is the way in which falling trees are generally interpreted according to the law. In the event that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not deemed to be neglectful or to blame for the tree falling. You remove the chunk of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is obligated with regard to tree removal and repair works to his property. You are only liable for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is perished or unhealthy the next-door neighbor could file suit and several insurance policies have a stipulation saying that they are exempt for dead 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 concerning dead or diseased trees. On the other hand if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the best way to safeguard yourself is to advise them in writing and let them find out 99 % of professional 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 next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know of many homeowners who like to clean gutters. We literally could start a gutter cleaning operation with the amount of phone calls we get seeking out a good inexpensive gutter cleaner. Almost everyone wants a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-priced ones I know aren’t insured and therefore I refuse to refer them. However clogged gutters are more frustrating than not possessing gutters whatsoever. Clogged up downspouts cause the water to overflow onto the face(fascia) boards and water caught behind the gutters causes these 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 soon after all the leaves have fallen and in the event that you get fed up with that we are a tree removal expert.
Peace of Mind: We often remove trees simply because some people lay awake on blustery nights as a result of a specific tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over their property. The fact is the only way to make sure a tree will never fall on the house is to clear away all large trees within striking distance. It could be pricey to remove a load of trees near your Greenwood Lake NY residence and often this eliminates the fear but leaves some remorse. Often fears could be relieved by having a tree service company examine the trees to make certain none of them have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree has to be cleared away you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree destroyer. Simply plant a brand new native tree at a much better location on your estate and you are doing your part to renew the growth cycle. If you don’t have room on your property but still wish to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They sow a tree for every single dollar donated and you can also specify the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a couple seeded in a non harvest site within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
