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: Sometimes storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is a good practice to have each and every tree that has recently lost a significant limb evaluated by a tree professional who may do a risk evaluation on the tree to verify more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide 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 provide 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 expenditures in the summer months and provides a barrier from the winter wind. However the decrease in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenditures to increase (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees beside houses can also enable unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter the attic. A client of ours had us remove some trees touching on his house because a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and tramped down 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| then afterwards needed to re-insulate and re-wire the loft. In scenarios where limbs are effectively touching the house the constant swaying of the trees can cause damaged shingles or home siding.
Often if a tree is too near to a house we can just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from the house but if several 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 take out the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or just simply look for a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will clog up your septic system| or they could crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or home. Since there is no way to stop this other than tree removal it is always best to carry out some research or consult a landscape company when choosing on a location for trees around a house 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 home before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to have to hire a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their proportions trees can dominate small plants. House owners should go with bushes or shrubs that can tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they have to live with a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that is not performing well under a tree can be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only do well in full sunlight. Whilst it may be cheaper to take out the tree| if you really love the tree you might just seek advice from a landscape professional about switching to a different type of grass to save the tree.
Impact on home value: While the most ideal tree in the proper location can boost a homes value the wrong tree can impact property’s value. Oftentimes we can improve the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your home from the road. Unfortunately 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 inhabit the very same location. Such is the scenario of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Oftentimes in these cases tree removal is the sole choice and if you are really feeling down about removing your best-loved tree you can always plant a different one. Albeit it does not mature in our lifespan our children or somebody else’s kids may appreciate it.
Liability issues: We are not legal professionals but here is the way falling trees are often interpreted based upon the law. In the case that the tree was not obviously dead or diseased you are not deemed to be negligent or to blame for the tree falling. You remove the chunk of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is responsible with respect to tree removal and repairs to his premises. You are only responsible for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is perished or unhealthy the next-door neighbor could sue and some insurance policies have a stipulation pointing out that these companies are not responsible for dead or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you could be held accountable for damages to the neighbor’s residential property and your insurance will not pay if they have a stipulation concerning dead or diseased trees. On the flip side if you have a next-door 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 house you can use the written notice to position the fee of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know many homeowners who like to clean out gutters. We actually could start a gutter maintenance company with the amount of phone calls we get searching for a good cheap gutter cleaner. Every one wants to have a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-cost kind I know typically aren’t insured and consequently I refuse to recommend them. Nevertheless clogged gutters are worse compared to not having gutters at all. Clogged 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. Otherwise clean them yearly right after all the leaves have fallen and if you get fed up with that we are a tree removal specialist.
Peace of Mind: We often times remove trees simply because some people lay awake on stormy nights as a result of a particular tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their house. Unfortunately the only way to insure a tree doesn’t fall on the house is to remove all large trees inside of close quarters. It can possibly be costly to remove a load of trees near your Highland Mills NY residence and sometimes this gets rid of the fear but leaves behind 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. If a tree has to be taken down you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. Just plant a brand-new native tree at a far 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 want to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They grow a tree for every dollar donated and you can also choose the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a couple planted in a non harvest site within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
