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: Occasionally storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is still a good idea to take each and every tree that has lost a good sized limb examined by a tree professional who should do a risk evaluation on the tree to make sure more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service totally free. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always require tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals offer free inspections.

Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a home is a total “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade which trees offer decreases cooling expenditures in the summer months and provides a barrier against the winter wind. However the decrease in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance costs to increase (this is covered in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees near to houses can also permit unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter the attic. A homeowner of ours had us remove some trees touching his house because a family of squirrels which had penetrated his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a bunch of money having somebody 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 scenarios where limbs are actually in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or siding.

In some cases if a tree is too near to a home we may just trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if a lot of limbs need to be cleared away it might cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be more suitable to remove the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or just select a more suitable location.

Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will clog up your septic system| or they might crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or property. Since there is no way to stop this other than tree removal it is always best to carry out some research or consult a landscape professional when choosing on a location for trees around a property or driveway. Often people fail to anticipate the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they might plan to sell the home before it reaches maturity leaving the new owner to have to find a professional tree service to take out the tree.

Impact on surrounding landscape: A result of their size trees can overshadow small plants. Home owners should certainly pick bushes or shrubs which have the ability to tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they will have to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that is not performing well underneath a tree could be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only prosper in full direct sunlight. Although it may be less expensive to remove the tree| if you really like the tree you could speak with a landscape professional about changing to a different type of grass to keep the tree.

Impact on home value:  While the most ideal tree in the appropriate location may improve a property’s worth the wrong tree can damage property’s value. In many cases we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your property from the road. However at times to boost the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.

Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically two things can not inhabit the same location. This is the instance of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Usually in these circumstances tree removal is the sole alternative and if you are feeling depressed about taking out your best-loved tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it doesn’t mature in our life time our kids or someone else’s children may well take joy in it.

Liability issues: We are not legal professionals however here is the way fallen trees are commonly translated based upon the law. If the tree was not obviously dead or diseased you are not considered to be neglectful or liable for the tree dropping down. You clear away the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is responsible with respect to tree removal and repair works to his property. You are only liable for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or unhealthy the next-door neighbor could file suit and a few insurance policies have a stipulation pointing out that these companies are exempt for lifeless or diseased trees. If this were to happen you could be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s residential property and your insurance will not pay if they have a stipulation 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 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 place the cost of removal on your next-door neighbor.

Maintenance: I do not know of many property owners who like to clean out gutters. We really could start a gutter cleaning company with the amount of calls we receive seeking out a good low-cost gutter cleaner. Everyone wants a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-priced kind I know typically aren’t insured and therefore I refuse to refer them. Unfortunately clogged gutters are much worse compared to not having gutters whatsoever. Obstructed downspouts cause the water to overflow into the face(fascia) boards and water trapped 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. Or else clean them yearly shortly after all the leaves have fallen and in the event that you get fed up with that we are a tree removal specialist.

Peace of Mind: We oftentimes remove trees because some people lay awake on windy nights due to a certain tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their house. Unfortunately the only way to make sure a tree will never fall on the house is to take out all large trees inside of striking distance. It could be pricey to remove a load of trees near your Harriman NY residential property and sometimes this eliminates the fear but leaves behind some regret. Commonly fears can be soothed by having a tree service professional assess the trees to make certain none of these have any flaws that would make them a more than normal threat. In the event that a tree needs to be removed you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Just simply plant a brand new native tree at a far better location on your property and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you don’t have room on your property but still would like to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They plant a tree for each dollar donated and you can also specify the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a few sown in a non harvest location within New York or even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
