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: Occasionally storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is still a good idea to take every tree that has definitely lost a significant limb assessed by a tree professional who should do a risk evaluation on the tree to verify more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service free of charge. Injured trees are most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always require 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 real “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade which trees offer decreases cooling costs in the summer months and provides a barrier from the winter wind. However the drop in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance expenditures to grow (this is covered in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees near to houses can also enable unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to penetrate the attic. A client of ours had us take down some trees touching his house owing 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 someone else trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then afterwards had to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In cases where limbs are effectively touching the house the constant swaying of the trees can lead to damaged roof shingles or siding.
Often if a tree is too close to a house we may just trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if many limbs need to be removed it may cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be more effective to take out the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or just consider 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 stop this other than tree removal it is always advisable to carry out some research or consult with a landscape company when choosing on a location for trees around a building or driveway. Often people fail to anticipate the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they might plan to sell theÂ building before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to have to find a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Thanks to their size trees can dominate smaller plants. Home-owners ought to choose bushes or shrubs which are able to tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they have to live with a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that is not performing well underneath a tree can be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only prosper in full direct sunlight. While it may be less costly to take out the tree| if you love the tree you could speak with a landscape company about switching to a different type of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the most ideal tree in the right location can boost a homes market value the wrong tree can hurt a home’s value. Often times we can enhance the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is just simply clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your house from the road. Having said that sometimes to boost the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically 2 things can not really occupy the same location. Such is the instance of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Usually in these cases tree removal is the sole choice and if you are really feeling depressed about taking out your treasured tree you can always plant another one. Even though it will not mature in our lifetime our children or somebody else’s kids may take joy in it.
Liability issues: We are not legal representatives however here is the way in which falling trees are ordinarily translated according to the law. Assuming that the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not deemed to be neglectful or at fault for the tree dropping down. You dispose of the part of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is obligated with regard to 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 dead or diseased the neighbor could file suit and several insurance policies have a clause saying that they are not responsible for dead or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you might be held accountable for damages to the neighbor’s property and your insurance will not pay if they have a clause concerning dead or diseased trees. On the other hand if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the best way to protect yourself is to advise them in writing and let them know 99 % of competent tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your home you can use the written notification to position the fee of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know of many individuals who like to clean gutters. We literally could start a gutter maintenance operation with the quantity of phone calls we receive trying to find a good affordable gutter cleaner. Every one would like a cheap gutter cleaner but all the inexpensive ones I know typically aren’t insured and consequently I refuse to refer them. Unfortunately clogged gutters are worse compared to not having gutters at all. Clogged up downspouts trigger the water to overflow onto 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 soon after all the leaves have fallen and if 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 blustery night-times due to a particular tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their residence. The fact is the sole way to guarantee a tree does not fall on the house is to take down all large trees within striking distance. It could be downright costly to remove a load of trees near your Highland Falls NY residential property and sometimes this eases the fear but leaves some regret. Commonly fears could be calmed by having a tree service pro evaluate the trees to ensure none of these have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree needs to be taken down you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree destroyer. Just plant a brand new native tree at a much better location on your estate and you are doing your part to renew the growth cycle. If you do not have space 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 each dollar donated and you can even specify the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a few sown in a non harvest location within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
