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: Usually 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 likely lost a pretty big limb examined 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 provide this service free of charge. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always necessitate tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals provide free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a residence is a total “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade which trees provide lowers cooling bills in the summertime and provides a barrier against the winter wind. On the other hand the decrease in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance bills to grow (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees close to houses can also make it possible for 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 trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a bunch of money having someone trap and remove the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then needed to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In situations where limbs are actually in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or home siding.
In some cases when a tree is very close to a house we may simply trim or cut back the tree limbs away from your home but if several limbs need to be removed it may 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 basically think about 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 alternative way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always advisable to do some research or hire a landscape professional when choosing on a location for trees around a building or driveway. Often people fail to envisage the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they might plan to sell theÂ property before it reaches maturity leaving the new owner to have to find a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: As a result of their overall size trees can dominate much smaller plants. Homeowners ought to select bushes or shrubs that will tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they have to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that isn’t performing well underneath a tree can be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only prosper in full direct sunlight. Even though it may be more affordable to remove the tree| if you love the tree you may consult a landscape company about switching to a different kind of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the most ideal tree in the most appropriate location can easily increase a homes resale value the wrong tree can impact a home’s value. Often times we can boost the curb appeal of a property 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 in some cases to enhance the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically two things can not inhabit the same location. This is the case of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Oftentimes in these circumstances tree removal is the only choice and if you are feeling down about getting rid of your best-loved tree you can always plant another one. Albeit it will not mature in our lifespan our children or someone else’s kids may take joy in it.
Liability issues: are not legal representatives however here is how fallen trees are typically interpreted according to the law. In the event that the tree was not clearly dead or diseased you are not considered to be neglectful or to blame for the tree dropping down. You clear away the section of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door 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 dead or unhealthy the neighbor could sue and some insurance policies have a provision stating that these companies are not responsible for lifeless or diseased trees. If this were to happen you can be held accountable for damages to the neighbor’s property and your insurance will not pay if they have a clause about dead or diseased trees. On the other side if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the very 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 evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your residence you can use the written notification to position the fee of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I do not know many people who like to clean gutters. We actually could start a gutter maintenance company with the number of calls we get trying to find a good affordable gutter cleaning service. Every one wants to have a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-cost kind I know typically aren’t insured and therefore I refuse to refer them. Nevertheless clogged gutters are much worse compared to not possessing gutters whatsoever. Congested 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. Or else clean them yearly shortly 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 because some people lay awake on windy night-times due to a particular tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their house. Unfortunately the sole way to insure a tree does not fall on the home is to clear away all big trees within close quarters. It could be costly to remove a great deal of trees near your Greenwood Lake NY property and sometimes this gets rid of the fear but leaves some regret. Typically fears can be relieved by having a tree service professional examine the trees to ensure none of them have any defects that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree needs to be taken down you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree executioner. Just simply plant a new native tree at a far better location on your estate and you are doing your part to renew the growth cycle. If you don’t have space on your property but still want to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They grow a tree for every single dollar donated and you can even choose the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a few planted in a non harvest site within New York or even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
