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: Sometimes storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is a good practice to take any specific tree that has lost a substantial limb examined 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 for free. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always warrant tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals provide free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a home is a total “catch 22” state of affairs. On the one hand the shade which trees render reduces cooling expenditures in the summer and provides a buffer from the winter wind. However the drop in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance costs to grow (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees near to houses can also permit unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter into the attic. A client of ours had us remove some trees touching on his house due to the fact that a family of squirrels which had gotten in his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a lot of money having someone trap and remove the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and then needed to re-insulate and re-wire the loft. In cases where limbs are effectively touching the house the constant swaying of the trees can result in damaged shingles or home siding.
At times if a tree is very close to a home we will be able to simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if lots of limbs need to be cleared away 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 simply pick a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots can sometimes clog up your septic system| or they could crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or property. Since there is no alternative way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always best to do some research or hire a landscape company when choosing on a location for trees around a home 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 home before it reaches maturity leaving the new owner to require to locate a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their overall size trees can overshadow small plants. Home-owners ought to pick bushes or shrubs which can tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they need to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that isn’t performing well beneath a tree could be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only do well in full sun light. Even though it may be more affordable to remove the tree| if you enjoy the tree you may speak with a landscape expert about switching to a different kind of grass to save the tree.
Impact on home value: While the perfect tree in the most appropriate location may increase a property’s worth the wrong tree can damage a home’s value. Often 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 house from the road. Having said that in certain cases to improve the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes 2 things can not really inhabit the same site. This is the scenario of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Often in these cases tree removal is the sole alternative and if you are really feeling down about removing your beloved tree you can always plant another one. Albeit it does not mature in our life-time our children or somebody else’s children can enjoy it.
Liability issues: are not legal representatives but here is the way falling trees are ordinarily interpreted according to the law. In the case that the tree was not clearly dead or diseased you are not considered to be negligent or at fault for the tree dropping down. You remove the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is responsible for tree removal and repair works to his property. You are actually only responsible for your property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is perished or unhealthy the neighbor could sue and a few insurance policies have a clause saying that they are exempt for deceased or unhealthy 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 stipulation about dead or diseased trees. On the other side if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the best way to protect 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 neighbor.
Maintenance: I do not know many people who like to clean gutters. We literally could start a gutter maintenance business with the amount of calls we receive searching for a good low-cost gutter cleaning service. Everyone would like a cheap gutter cleaner but all the cheap ones I know aren’t insured and as a result I refuse to refer them. However clogged gutters are worse compared to not possessing gutters whatsoever. Clogged up downspouts cause 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 soon 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 simply because some people lay awake on stormy night-times as a result of a certain tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over their house. Unfortunately the sole way to guarantee a tree doesn’t fall on the home is to clear away all large trees within striking distance. It may be costly to remove a lot of trees near your Highland Falls NY residential property and often this eliminates the fear but leaves some remorse. Typically fears could be soothed by having a tree service professional evaluate the trees to make certain none of them have any flaws that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree needs to be removed you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Just simply plant a new native tree at a more desirable 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 provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They sow a tree for every dollar donated and you can also choose the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a few cultivated in a non harvest place within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
