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 Harriman 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: Once in a while storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is still a good practice to take any tree that has lost a large limb looked over by a tree professional who can do a risk assessment on the tree to verify more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service free of cost. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always necessitate tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals offer free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a property is a total “catch 22” state of affairs. On the one hand the shade that trees render reduces cooling bills in the summer 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 costs to increase (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees near to houses can also make it possible for unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter into the attic. A client of ours had us take down some trees touching on his house owing to a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a bunch of money having someone else trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and then needed to re-insulate and re-wire the loft. In situations where limbs are effectively in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or home siding.
Sometimes when a tree is too near to a property we may just trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if lots of limbs need to be removed 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 a different more compact growing tree or just simply pick a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots may clog up your septic system| or they might crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or property. Since there is no other to stop this other than tree removal it is always best to carry out some research or consult with a landscape professional when deciding 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 might plan to sell theÂ building before it reaches maturity leaving the subsequent owner to have to find a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their proportions trees can overshadow small plants. House owners ought to pick bushes or shrubs that have the ability to tolerate the competition for sun light and water or they have to deal with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well under a tree can be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some grasses only do well in full sunlight. Although it may be less costly to remove the tree| if you enjoy the tree you may speak with a landscape professional about switching to a different kind of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the perfect tree in the most appropriate location can easily boost a homes worth the inappropriate tree can damage property’s value. Often times we can improve the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. However in some cases to enhance the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees often two things can not occupy the same location. This is the instance 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 feeling depressed about getting rid of your beloved tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it will not mature in our life time our kids or somebody else’s children may well appreciate it.
Liability issues: Our people are not lawyers but this is how fallen trees are ordinarily interpreted according to the law. If the tree was not obviously dead or diseased you are not deemed to be negligent or liable for the tree falling. You remove the section of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is obligated for tree removal and repair works to his premises. You are only liable for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or unhealthy the neighbor could sue and a few insurance policies have a stipulation saying that they are exempt for perished or diseased trees. If this were to happen you can be held accountable for damage 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 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 residence you can use the written notice to position the fee of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know of many individuals that like to clean gutters. We really could start a gutter maintenance business with the number of phone calls we receive trying to find a good affordable gutter cleaning service. Every one would like a cheap gutter cleaner but all the cheap kind I know typically aren’t insured and consequently I refuse to refer them. However clogged gutters are more frustrating compared to not possessing gutters at all. Congested 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 put in a gutter cap like http://www.leafguard.com or http://www.gutterguardian.com. Alternatively clean them yearly soon after all the leaves have fallen and if you get fed up with that we are a tree removal expert.
Peace of Mind: We frequently remove trees because some people lay awake on stormy nights due to a certain tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over the house. Unfortunately the sole way to guarantee a tree doesn’t fall on the house is to clear away all big trees within close quarters. It may be costly to remove a great deal of trees near your Harriman NY house and sometimes this gets rid of the fear but leaves behind some regret. Commonly fears could be appeased by having a tree service expert evaluate the trees to ensure none of these have any flaws that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree has to be taken down you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Just plant a brand new native tree at a much better location on your estate and you are doing your part to restore 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 grow a tree for every single dollar donated and you can even choose the location by US State or country. Chop down a tree in your yard and have a few cultivated in a non harvest place within New York or even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
