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 still a good practice to take each and every tree that has likely lost a sizable limb examined by a tree professional who can do a risk assessment 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 almost all true tree service professionals carry out free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a house is a total “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade that trees offer lowers cooling bills in the summer months and provides a buffer from the winter wind. However the drop in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance expenses to grow (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees alongside houses can also enable unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter the attic. A homeowner of ours had us remove some trees touching 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 take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and then had to re-insulate and rewire the attic. In situations where limbs are effectively touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can result in damaged roof shingles or home siding.
Sometimes whenever a tree is very near to a house we will be able to simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if several limbs need to be removed it may cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be better to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or simply choose 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 foundation. Since there is no other to stop this other than tree removal it is always advisable to conduct some research or consult a landscape professional when choosing on a location for trees around a home or driveway. Often people fail to understand the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they may plan to sell theÂ house before it reaches maturity leaving the subsequent 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. Home owners ought to decide on bushes or shrubs which can tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they need to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that is not performing well underneath a tree can be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some lawns only flourish in full sunlight. Even though it may be cheaper to take out the tree| if you love the tree you may seek advice from a landscape professional about changing to a different kind of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the perfect tree in the correct location can improve a property’s market value the inappropriate tree can damage property’s value. In many cases we can improve the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is simply clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your home from the road. Having said that in certain cases to boost the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes 2 things can not really inhabit the very same site. Such is the scenario of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Normally in these situations tree removal is the only option and if you are feeling down about removing your best-loved tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it does not mature in our life time our children or somebody else’s kids may appreciate it.
Liability issues: We are certainly not legal professionals however here is the way in which fallen trees are commonly translated based upon the law. On the assumption that the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be neglectful or to blame for the tree dropping down. You dispose of the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is responsible with regard to tree removal and repair works to his premises. You are actually only responsible for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the next-door neighbor could sue and some insurance policies have a clause stating that these companies are not responsible for perished 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 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 know 99 % of professional tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your home you can use the written notice to position the cost of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I do not know many people that like to clean out gutters. We really could start a gutter maintenance company with the amount of calls we get looking for a good cheap gutter cleaning service. Everyone would like a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the inexpensive kind I know typically aren’t insured and for this reason I refuse to refer them. Having said that clogged gutters are much worse compared to not possessing gutters at all. Clogged up downspouts cause the water to overflow onto the face(fascia) boards and water trapped behind the gutters causes them to rot. So that requires you to put in 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 frequently remove trees because some people lay awake on stormy nights due to a certain tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their property. The fact is the sole way to make certain a tree does not fall on the home is to clear away all big trees within striking distance. It may be downright costly to remove a great deal of trees near your Highland Falls NY residential property and often this eliminates the fear but leaves behind some remorse. Often fears can be relieved by having a tree service professional assess 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 needs to be taken down you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree executioner. Just plant a fresh native tree at a much 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 wish 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 even choose the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a couple seeded in a non harvest place within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
