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 Highland Falls 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 have any tree that has definitely lost a significant limb inspected by a tree professional who can possibly do a risk evaluation on the tree to check 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 almost all true tree service professionals carry out free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a property is a real “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade that trees render reduces cooling bills in the hot months and provides a barrier against the winter wind. Meanwhile the decrease in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenses to increase (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees next to houses can also enable unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to penetrate the attic. A customer of ours had us take down some trees touching on his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a lot of money having somebody trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and afterwards needed to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In scenarios where limbs are actually touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or siding.
In some cases whenever a tree is very near to a home we may simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if lots of limbs need to be taken off it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be more suitable to take out the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or just simply decide on 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 building. Since there is no alternative way to stop this other than tree removal it is always prudent to carry out some research or consult with 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 theÂ property before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to require to pay a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their overall size trees can dominate smaller plants. Property owners should certainly go with bushes or shrubs which are able to tolerate the competition for sun light and water or they have to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that is not performing well beneath a tree could be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only prosper in full direct sunlight. Although it may be cheaper to remove the tree| if you love the tree you may speak with a landscape company about switching to a different type of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the perfect tree in the proper location can increase a property’s value the inappropriate tree can hurt 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 getting rid of 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 very same spot. This is the instance of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Oftentimes in these instances tree removal is the sole solution and if you are feeling down about getting rid of your beloved tree you can always plant a different one. Even though it may not mature in our life-time our children or someone else’s children may well appreciate it.
Liability issues: are not lawyers but here is the way falling trees are basically interpreted according to the law. In the event that the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be negligent or to blame 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 responsible for your property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is perished or unhealthy the neighbor could sue and several insurance policies have a stipulation pointing out that they are exempt for dead or diseased trees. If this were to happen you may be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s residential property and your insurance will not pay if they have a stipulation about dead or diseased trees. On the other hand if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to safeguard yourself is to notify them in writing and let them know 99 % of competent tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your home you can use the written notification to place the cost of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know many homeowners that like to clean gutters. We actually could start a gutter cleaning business with the quantity of telephone calls we receive searching for a good low-cost gutter cleaner. Everyone wants to have a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the inexpensive ones I know aren’t insured and consequently I refuse to recommend them. Nevertheless clogged gutters are more frustrating than not possessing gutters at all. Congested downspouts trigger the water to overflow onto the face(fascia) boards and water caught behind the gutters causes these 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 shortly 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 because some people lay awake on blustery night-times because of a certain tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over the house. The fact is the sole way to guarantee a tree does not fall on the home is to remove all big trees inside of striking distance. It may be costly to remove a lot of trees near your Highland Falls NY property and often this eliminates the fear but leaves some remorse. Commonly fears can be relieved by having a tree service company examine the trees to make certain none of them have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. In the event that a tree requires to be taken down you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Simply plant a brand-new native tree at a better location on your estate and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you don’t have space on your property but still wish to make a contribution you can make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They plant a tree for every dollar donated and you can even choose the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a couple sown in a non harvest site within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
