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: Usually storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is a good idea to have any specific tree that has recently lost a good sized limb examined by a tree professional who can possibly do a risk evaluation on the tree to ensure that more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service free of charge. 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 house is a total “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade which trees render reduces cooling costs in the summer and provides a barrier against the winter wind. However the reduction in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance bills to increase (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees alongside houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter the attic. A client of ours had us take down some trees touching on his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had penetrated his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a bunch of money having somebody 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 actually touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged roof shingles or home siding.
In some cases whenever a tree is too close to a house we may just trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if lots of limbs need to be removed it might cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be more effective to remove the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or basically select 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 home. Since there is no other to stop this other than tree removal it is always advisable to conduct some research or refer to a landscape company when deciding on a location for trees around a property or driveway. Often people fail to envisage 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 subsequent owner to require to find a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: A result of their size trees can overshadow smaller plants. Home owners ought to decide on bushes or shrubs that can tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they will have to deal with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well beneath a tree could be assisted by stepping up water and fertilizer but some grasses only flourish in full sunshine. Whilst it may be less expensive to take out the tree| if you really love the tree you may speak with a landscape expert about changing to a different sort of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the most ideal tree in the right location can boost a homes value the inappropriate tree can damage property’s value. Often times we can boost the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is simply removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. However at times to improve the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically two things can not occupy the same spot. Such is the case of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Oftentimes in these situations tree removal is the only alternative and if you are feeling down about taking out your beloved tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it may not mature in our lifespan our children or somebody else’s kids may well enjoy it.
Liability issues: We are certainly not lawyer or attorneys however here is the way fallen trees are often translated according to the law. Assuming that the tree was not obviously dead or diseased you are not considered to be negligent or to blame for the tree dropping down. You remove the chunk of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is obligated with respect to tree removal and repair works to his premises. You are only responsible for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is perished or unhealthy the next-door neighbor could file suit and a few insurance policies have a stipulation pointing out that they are not responsible for perished or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you might be held accountable for damage 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 protect 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 house you can use the written notification to place the expense of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I do not know of many homeowners that like to clean out gutters. We literally could start a gutter maintenance business with the number of phone calls we get trying to find a good affordable gutter cleaner. Almost everyone wants to have a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the low-cost ones I know aren’t insured and consequently I refuse to recommend them. At the same time clogged gutters are much worse than not having gutters at all. Clogged downspouts cause the water to overflow into the face(fascia) boards and water trapped 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. Otherwise 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 oftentimes remove trees because some people lay awake on stormy night-times due to a specific tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their residence. Unfortunately the sole way to guarantee a tree will never fall on the house is to remove all big trees inside of striking distance. It can possibly be pricey to remove a great deal of trees near your Highland Falls NY house and often this eliminates the fear but leaves some remorse. Typically fears can be soothed by having a tree service company inspect the trees to make certain none of these have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. In the event that a tree requires to be removed you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree executioner. Just simply plant a fresh native tree at a 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 make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They sow a tree for every single dollar donated and you can also choose the location by US State or country. Chop down a tree in your yard and have a couple seeded in a non harvest site within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
