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 have each and every tree that has likely lost a substantial limb looked over by a tree professional that can possibly 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 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 real “catch 22” state of affairs. On the one hand the shade which trees render reduces cooling bills in the summer time and provides a barrier from the winter wind. On the other hand the drop in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance costs to increase (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees beside houses can also help unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to gain access to the attic. A customer of ours had us remove some trees touching on his house owing to a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a bunch of money having someone else 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 situations where limbs are effectively touching the house the constant swaying of the trees can lead to damaged roof shingles or home siding.
Often when a tree is very near to a home we will be able to just trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if lots of limbs need to be taken off it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be more suitable to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or basically choose on a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will clog up your septic system| or they can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or foundation. Since there is no alternative way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always prudent to conduct some research or refer to a landscape professional when choosing on a location for trees around a property 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 property before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to require to pay a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Thanks to their overall size trees can dominate smaller plants. Property owners ought to decide on bushes or shrubs which will tolerate the competition for sun light and water or they need to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that is not performing well beneath a tree could be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only prosper in full sunshine. Even though it may be less expensive to take out the tree| if you really love the tree you may consult a landscape professional about switching to a different sort of grass to save the tree.
Impact on home value: While the perfect tree in the appropriate location can improve a property’s worth the wrong tree can damage a home’s value. Often times we can boost the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your house from the road. However sometimes to improve the curb appeal we have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees at times 2 things can not occupy the very same area. Such is the case of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Often in these cases tree removal is the sole choice and if you are really feeling depressed about clearing away your best-loved tree you can always plant a different one. Albeit it does not mature in our life-time our kids or somebody else’s children can take joy in it.
Liability issues: We are not lawyers but here is insights on how falling trees are generally interpreted according to the law. In the event that the tree was not obviously dead or diseased you are not deemed to be negligent or liable for the tree dropping down. You clear away the part of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is responsible with regard to tree removal and repairs to his property. You are only responsible for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the neighbor could file suit and several insurance policies have a provision pointing out that they are not responsible for dead or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you can be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s residential property and your insurance will not pay if they have a clause about dead or diseased trees. On the other hand if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to protect yourself is to notify them in writing and let them find out 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 place the expense of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know many homeowners that like to clean gutters. We literally could start a gutter cleaning company with the quantity of phone calls we receive seeking out a good cheap gutter cleaning service. Everyone would like a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the low-priced ones I know typically aren’t insured and for this reason I refuse to refer them. Having said that clogged gutters are worse compared to not having gutters whatsoever. Blocked 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. Alternatively clean them yearly after all the leaves have fallen and in the event that you get fed up with that we are a tree removal specialist.
Peace of Mind: We frequently remove trees because some people lay awake on blustery nights due to a certain tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their residence. The fact is the only way to insure a tree doesn’t fall on the house is to clear away all large trees within striking distance. It could be pricey to remove a lot of trees near your Highland Mills NY property and often this alleviates the fear but leaves behind some remorse. Often fears could be soothed by having a tree service professional evaluate the trees to make sure none of them have any flaws that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree has to be removed you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree destroyer. Just simply plant a new native tree at a far better location on your property and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you do not have room on your property but still wish to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They plant a tree for each dollar donated and you can even specify the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a couple seeded in a non harvest place within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
