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 idea to take any specific tree that has recently lost a significant limb assessed by a tree professional who can do a risk assessment on the tree to ascertain more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service totally free. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always warrant tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals make available free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a house is a total “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade that trees render lowers cooling expenditures in the summer months and provides a barrier against the winter wind. On the other hand the decrease 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 close to houses can also enable unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter into the attic. A customer of ours had us take down some trees touching his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had gotten in his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a bunch of money having somebody trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then afterwards needed to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In cases where limbs are actually in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can cause damaged shingles or home siding.
At times whenever a tree is too close to a property we will be able to simply trim or cut back the tree limbs away from your home but if a lot of limbs need to be removed it may 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 can sometimes clog up your septic system| or they can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or property. Since there is no alternative way to stop this other than tree removal it is always prudent to conduct some research or consult with a landscape company when deciding on a location for trees around a property or driveway. Often people fail to anticipate the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they just plan to sell theÂ building before it reaches maturity leaving the subsequent owner to have to find a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: As a result of their overall size trees can dominate small plants. Property owners should certainly choose bushes or shrubs which will tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they have to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well beneath a tree could be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some lawns only prosper in full sunshine. Whilst it may be cheaper to take out the tree| if you love the tree you could consult a landscape expert about changing to a different kind of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the perfect tree in the correct location can certainly boost a property’s worth the wrong tree can impact property’s value. Oftentimes we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your home from the road. Unfortunately sometimes to improve the curb appeal we have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically two things can not really occupy the same area. Such is the case of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Often in these circumstances tree removal is the sole solution and if you are really feeling depressed about extracting your treasured tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it may not mature in our lifetime our children or somebody else’s children may appreciate it.
Liability issues: are certainly not lawyers however here is insights on how falling trees are normally translated based upon the law. Assuming that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be neglectful or at fault for the tree dropping down. You remove the chunk of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is responsible when it comes to tree removal and repairs to his premises. You are only liable for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the neighbor could file suit and several insurance policies have a provision saying that they are exempt for deceased or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you may 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 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 professional tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your house you can use the written notice to place the fee of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know many individuals that like to clean out gutters. We really could start a gutter maintenance operation with the quantity of telephone calls we get trying to find a good low-cost gutter cleaning service. Every one wants a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-cost kind I know typically aren’t insured and consequently I refuse to refer them. Nevertheless clogged gutters are much worse than not having gutters whatsoever. Clogged up downspouts cause the water to overflow into the face(fascia) boards and water caught 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. Alternatively clean them yearly 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 windy night-times because of a specific tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over the house. The fact is the only way to make certain a tree doesn’t fall on the home is to take out all big trees inside of close quarters. It can possibly be pricey to remove a bunch of trees near your Highland Mills NY residential property and often this eliminates the fear but leaves behind some regret. Often fears can be soothed by having a tree service expert evaluate the trees to make sure none of them have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree needs to be cleared away you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. Simply 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 want to make a contribution you can make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They sow a tree for every dollar donated and you can even specify the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a couple cultivated in a non harvest location within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
