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 still a good practice to have each and every tree that has lost a significant limb looked at by a tree professional who 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 more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always warrant tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals offer 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 decreases cooling costs in the hot months and provides a buffer from the winter wind. However the reduction in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance costs to increase (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees close to houses can also enable unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to penetrate the attic. A client of ours had us take down some trees touching on his house because a family of squirrels which had gotten in his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a bunch of money having someone trap and remove the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and afterwards had to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In situations where limbs are effectively in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can cause damaged roof shingles or siding.

Occasionally when a tree is too near to a property we can just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from your home but if many limbs need to be cleared away it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be more effective to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or just simply opt for a more suitable location.

Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will clog up your septic system| or they could crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or foundation. Since there is no other to prevent this other than tree removal it is always best to carry out some research or consult a landscape company when choosing on a location for trees around a house or driveway. Often people fail to anticipate the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they just plan to sell the home 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: As a result of their scale trees can overshadow small plants. Property owners ought to choose bushes or shrubs that will tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they need to deal with a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that isn’t performing well beneath a tree can be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some lawns only prosper in full sunlight. Although it may be less costly to remove the tree| if you cherish the tree you might just consult a landscape professional about changing to a different kind of grass to save the tree.

Impact on home value:  While the best tree in the proper location can easily improve a homes value the wrong tree can damage property’s value. Often times we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is just simply clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your home from the road. However sometimes to enhance the curb appeal we have to turn to tree removal.

Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes 2 things can not really inhabit the very same area. This is the scenario of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Normally in these circumstances tree removal is the only solution and if you are really feeling down about taking out your best-loved tree you can always plant another one. Even if it doesn’t mature in our lifetime our children or someone else’s children may take joy in it.

Liability issues: Our people are certainly not legal professionals but here is insights on how falling trees are ordinarily interpreted according to the law. In the case that the tree was not clearly dead or diseased you are not considered to be neglectful or at fault for the tree dropping down. You remove the section of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is responsible with respect to tree removal and repairs to his property. You are only liable for your property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is dead or unhealthy the next-door neighbor could file suit and some insurance policies have a stipulation pointing out that they are exempt for deceased or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you may be held accountable for damages 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 very best way to protect yourself is to notify them in writing and let them know 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 cost of removal on your neighbor.

Maintenance: I don’t know of many people who like to clean out gutters. We actually could start a gutter cleaning company with the quantity of calls we receive looking for a good inexpensive gutter cleaning service. Every one would like a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-priced kind I know aren’t insured and as a result I refuse to refer them. Unfortunately clogged gutters are worse compared to not possessing gutters whatsoever. Clogged downspouts cause the water to overflow onto the face(fascia) boards and water caught behind the gutters causes them to rot. So that requires you to install a gutter cap like http://www.leafguard.com or http://www.gutterguardian.com. Or else 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 times remove trees simply because some people lay awake on blustery night-times as a result of a particular tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their property. Unfortunately the only way to make certain a tree will never fall on the home is to remove all big trees inside of striking distance. It can be pricey to remove a lot of trees near your Greenwood Lake NY house and often this alleviates the fear but leaves behind some regret. Often fears could be relieved by having a tree service expert evaluate the trees to ensure none of these have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree needs to be taken down you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. Simply plant a new native tree at a far better location on your property and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you do not have room on your property but still wish to make a contribution you can make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They grow a tree for every dollar donated and you can even choose the location by US State or country. Chop down a tree in your yard and have a couple sown in a non harvest site within New York or even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
