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 still a good practice to take any specific tree that has definitely lost a pretty big limb inspected by a tree professional who can possibly do a risk assessment on the tree to check 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 warrant 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” state of affairs. On the one hand the shade which trees provide lowers cooling costs in the summertime and provides a barrier against the winter wind. Meanwhile the drop in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenditures to grow (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees close to houses can also make it possible for unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter into the attic. A homeowner of ours had us remove some trees touching 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 lot of money having someone else trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then had to re-insulate and rewire the attic. In cases where limbs are actually in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can result in damaged shingles or home siding.
At times whenever a tree is too near to a house we may simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if several limbs need to be removed it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be more effective to remove the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or simply decide on a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots may clog up your septic system| or they could crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or building. Since there is no way to stop this other than tree removal it is always prudent to conduct some research or hire a landscape company when choosing on a location for trees around a home 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 subsequent owner to have to find a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their size trees can dominate smaller plants. Property owners should choose bushes or shrubs that have the ability to tolerate the competition for sun light and water or they need to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that is not performing well underneath a tree could be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only flourish in full sunshine. Whilst it may be less expensive to take out the tree| if you cherish the tree you could speak with a landscape expert about switching to a different kind of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the most ideal tree in the most appropriate location can certainly improve a property’s worth the inappropriate tree can damage property’s value. Often times we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is merely clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your property from the road. Unfortunately in some cases to improve the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically two things can not inhabit the same location. Such is the scenario of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Often in these instances tree removal is the only choice and if you are feeling down about taking out your best-loved tree you can always plant another one. Even though it may not mature in our life time our children or somebody else’s children may appreciate it.
Liability issues: We are certainly not lawyer or attorneys however here is insights on how falling trees are typically translated according to the law. In the event that the tree was not clearly dead or diseased you are not deemed to be neglectful or at fault for the tree falling. You clear away the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is liable with regard to tree removal and repairs to his property. You are actually only responsible for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is perished or unhealthy the neighbor could sue and some insurance policies have a provision saying that they are not responsible for perished or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you may be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s property and your insurance will not pay if they have a stipulation concerning dead or diseased trees. On the other hand if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to protect yourself is to advise 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 cost of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I do not know of many individuals who like to clean out gutters. We really could start a gutter cleaning company with the number of telephone calls we get searching for a good inexpensive gutter cleaning service. Every one wants to have a cheap gutter cleaner but all the cheap ones I know aren’t insured and that is why I refuse to recommend them. Unfortunately clogged gutters are more frustrating compared to not having gutters at all. Clogged up downspouts cause 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 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 simply because some people lay awake on blustery nights because of a particular tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their house. Unfortunately the sole way to insure a tree does not fall on the home is to take out all big trees inside of close quarters. It may be expensive to remove a number of trees near your Highland Mills NY residence and often this gets rid of the fear but leaves some remorse. Typically fears could be appeased by having a tree service professional evaluate the trees to make certain none of these have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree needs to be cleared away you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Simply plant a brand new native tree at a far better location on your estate and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you don’t have space on your property but still wish 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 even specify the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a couple sown in a non harvest site within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
