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 Mills 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 idea to take each and every tree that has lost a good sized limb examined by a tree professional who may do a risk evaluation on the tree to ascertain more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service for free. Injured trees are most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always necessitate tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals offer free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a property is a real “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade that trees render lowers cooling costs in the summer time and provides a buffer from the winter wind. Meanwhile the drop in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance expenditures to increase (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees close to houses can also help unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to get into the attic. A customer of ours had us take down some trees touching his house because a family of squirrels which had penetrated his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a lot of money having somebody trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then afterwards had to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In scenarios where limbs are effectively in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can result in damaged roof shingles or siding.
Sometimes when a tree is very near to a home we may just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from your home but if several limbs need to be removed it might cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be far better to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or simply look for a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots can sometimes clog up your septic system| or they might crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or foundation. Since there is no way to stop this other than tree removal it is always best to conduct some research or refer to a landscape professional when deciding on a location for trees around a building or driveway. Often people fail to envisage 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 new owner to require to find a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Thanks to their size trees can dominate much smaller plants. Home owners should certainly select bushes or shrubs that can tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they will have to live with a landscape not performing at it’s full 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 direct sunlight. Even though it may be more affordable to remove the tree| if you enjoy the tree you might just consult a landscape expert about changing to a different type of grass to save the tree.
Impact on home value: While the most ideal tree in the appropriate location can easily boost a property’s worth the inappropriate tree can damage a home’s value. In many cases we can enhance 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 the house from the road. However sometimes to improve the curb appeal we will have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically two things can not really occupy the same site. Such is the scenario of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Generally in these situations tree removal is the only option and if you are feeling depressed about extracting your best-loved tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it does not mature in our lifespan our kids or someone else’s kids can enjoy it.
Liability issues: We are certainly not lawyers however here is the way in which fallen trees are often interpreted based upon the law. On the assumption that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be negligent or at fault for the tree falling. You remove the section of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is liable 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 perished or diseased the next-door neighbor could file suit and some insurance policies have a provision saying that they are not responsible for perished or diseased trees. If this were to happen you may be held accountable for damages 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 protect yourself is to notify them in writing and let them know 99 % of competent tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your residence you can use the written notice to position the expense of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know many people that like to clean out gutters. We really could start a gutter maintenance operation with the quantity of phone calls we receive seeking out a good inexpensive gutter cleaning service. Everyone would like a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the cheap kind I know aren’t insured and for that reason I refuse to refer them. Nevertheless clogged gutters are worse compared to not having gutters at all. 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 put in 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 if you get fed up with that we are a tree removal expert.
Peace of Mind: We often remove trees because some people lay awake on blustery night-times as a result of a certain tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their property. Unfortunately the only way to make sure a tree does not fall on the house is to clear away all big trees within striking distance. It can possibly be downright costly to remove a great deal of trees near your Highland Mills NY residence and often this eliminates the fear but leaves some regret. Commonly fears can be relieved by having a tree service pro evaluate the trees to make certain none of them have any flaws that would make them a more than normal threat. In the event that a tree needs to be removed you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree executioner. Simply plant a new native tree at a better location on your estate and you are doing your part to renew the growth cycle. If you don’t have space on your property but still want to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They plant a tree for every dollar donated and you can even specify the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a couple sown in a non harvest place within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
