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 a good practice to have every tree that has definitely lost a substantial limb examined by a tree professional who may do a risk assessment 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 require tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals offer free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a residence is a real “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade that trees render lowers cooling expenditures in the summertime and provides a buffer against the winter wind. Meanwhile the decrease in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance costs to grow (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees near to houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter the attic. A homeowner of ours had us remove some trees touching on his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a lot 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 attic. In scenarios where limbs are actually in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can result in damaged shingles or home siding.
Occasionally when a tree is too close to a property we can just trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if a lot of limbs need to be taken off it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be more suitable to remove the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or just go for a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots may clog up your septic system| or they can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or home. Since there is no alternative way to stop this other than tree removal it is always advised to carry out some research or refer to a landscape professional when choosing on a location for trees around a home or driveway. Often people fail to comprehend the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they may plan to sell theÂ building before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to require to find a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Because of their overall size trees can overshadow much smaller plants. House owners should certainly go with bushes or shrubs which are able to tolerate the competition for sun light and water or they need to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that isn’t performing well underneath a tree could be assisted by stepping up water and fertilizer but some grasses only do well in full sunlight. Even though it may be less costly to remove the tree| if you love the tree you might just consult a landscape expert about changing to a different kind 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 wrong tree can impact a home’s value. Oftentimes we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is merely removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. Unfortunately sometimes to boost the curb appeal we will have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees often 2 things can not inhabit the same area. This is the scenario of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Oftentimes in these scenarios tree removal is the only choice and if you are feeling down about extracting your treasured tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it will not mature in our lifespan our children or somebody else’s kids may appreciate it.
Liability issues: We are certainly not lawyer or attorneys but this is the way fallen trees are commonly interpreted according to the law. In the case that the tree was not obviously dead or diseased you are not considered to be neglectful or liable for the tree falling. You clear away the part of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is responsible with regard to tree removal and repairs to his premises. You are only liable for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the next-door neighbor could file suit and a few insurance policies have a provision saying that they are exempt for perished 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 about dead or diseased trees. On the flip side if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the best way to safeguard yourself is to advise them in writing and let them find out 99 % of professional tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your residence you can use the written notice to place the expense of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know of many property owners that like to clean gutters. We literally could start a gutter cleaning operation with the amount of phone calls we receive trying to find a good cheap gutter cleaning service. Every one wants a cheap gutter cleaner but all the inexpensive ones I know aren’t insured and as a result I refuse to recommend them. However clogged gutters are more frustrating than not possessing gutters whatsoever. Congested 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 install a gutter cap like http://www.leafguard.com or http://www.gutterguardian.com. Alternatively clean them yearly after all the leaves have fallen and if you get fed up with that we are a tree removal specialist.
Peace of Mind: We oftentimes remove trees simply 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 make certain a tree will never fall on the home is to clear away all big trees within close quarters. It may be pricey to remove a lot of trees near your Highland Falls NY house and often this gets rid of the fear but leaves behind some remorse. Typically fears could be relieved by having a tree service company evaluate the trees to ensure none of them have any flaws that would make them a more than normal threat. In the event that a tree has to be taken down you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree executioner. 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 want 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. Fell a tree in your yard and have a few seeded in a non harvest place within New York or even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
