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: Sometimes storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is still a good practice to have any specific tree that has likely lost a significant limb inspected by a tree professional that may 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 almost all true tree service professionals perform free inspections.

Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a residence is a real “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade that trees render decreases cooling costs in the summer time and provides a barrier from the winter wind. However the reduction in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance costs to increase (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees alongside houses can also permit unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter the attic. A client of ours had us remove some trees touching on his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had penetrated his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a bunch of money having somebody trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and then had to re-insulate and rewire the attic. In cases where limbs are actually in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or home siding.

At times if a tree is very close to a home we can simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if several limbs need to be taken off it might cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be better to remove the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or just pick out 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 property. Since there is no way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always advisable to do some research or consult with a landscape professional when choosing on a location for trees around a property or driveway. Often people fail to comprehend the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they just plan to sell the house 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: A result of their overall size trees can dominate much smaller plants. Home-owners ought to go with bushes or shrubs which will tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they have to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that isn’t performing well beneath a tree could be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only flourish in full direct sunlight. While it may be cheaper to remove the tree| if you really love the tree you may speak with a landscape professional about changing to a different kind of grass to save the tree.

Impact on home value:  While the right tree in the most appropriate location can certainly boost a homes value the inappropriate tree can damage a home’s value. Oftentimes we can improve the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is just simply getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your 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 at times 2 things can not really inhabit the same spot. This is the case of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Oftentimes in these instances tree removal is the sole solution and if you are feeling down about taking out your treasured tree you can always plant a different one. Albeit it doesn’t mature in our life time our kids or someone else’s kids can take joy in it.

Liability issues: Our people are certainly not attorneys but this is the way in which fallen trees are commonly translated based upon the law. If the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not deemed to be neglectful or to blame for the tree falling. You dispose of the section of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is obligated when it comes to tree removal and repair works to his premises. You are actually only liable for your residential property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the neighbor could file suit and several insurance policies have a provision saying that they are exempt for perished or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you could 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 best way to safeguard yourself is to notify them in writing and let them find out 99 % of competent tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your house you can use the written notification to place the fee of removal on your next-door neighbor.

Maintenance: I do not know many homeowners that like to clean out gutters. We actually could start a gutter maintenance operation with the amount of calls we receive trying to find a good affordable gutter cleaner. Everyone would like a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the cheap ones I know aren’t insured and as a result I refuse to recommend them. Unfortunately clogged gutters are much worse than not possessing gutters at all. Congested downspouts trigger the water to overflow into 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. Otherwise clean them yearly 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 frequently remove trees because some people lay awake on windy night-times as a result of a particular tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their property. The fact is the sole way to guarantee a tree doesn’t fall on the home is to clear away all large trees within close quarters. It can possibly be pricey to remove a number of trees near your Harriman NY home and often this alleviates the fear but leaves behind some remorse. Commonly fears can be relieved by having a tree service professional assess the trees to make certain none of them have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. In the event that a tree has to be cleared away you 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 estate and you are doing your part to renew 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 every dollar donated and you can also specify the location by US State or country. Chop down a tree in your yard and have a couple planted in a non harvest location within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
