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 Howells 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 still a good practice to have any specific tree that has lost a pretty big limb looked at by a tree professional that can do a risk evaluation on the tree to verify more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service for free. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always necessitate tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals carry out free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a home is a real “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade that trees render reduces cooling costs in the hot months and provides a buffer against the winter wind. However the decrease in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing maintenance bills to grow (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees alongside houses can also permit unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to penetrate the attic. A homeowner of ours had us take down some trees touching his house due to the fact that a family of squirrels which had gotten in his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a lot of money having somebody trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and then needed to re-insulate and re-wire the loft. In scenarios where limbs are actually in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or home siding.
In some cases whenever a tree is too near to a house we may just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from the house but if a lot of limbs need to be cleared away 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 another more compact growing tree or simply pick out a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will clog up your septic system| or they might crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or building. Since there is no alternative way to stop this other than tree removal it is always advisable to do 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 may plan to sell theÂ house before it reaches maturity leaving the subsequent owner to have to pay a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: A result of their size trees can overshadow smaller plants. Property owners should go with bushes or shrubs which are able to tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they need to deal with a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that isn’t performing well underneath a tree can be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only flourish in full sun light. While it may be less expensive to take out the tree| if you cherish the tree you may speak with a landscape company about changing to a different type of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the perfect tree in the right location can certainly boost a property’s worth the inappropriate tree can hurt property’s value. Often we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is just simply removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your house from the road. Having said that sometimes to enhance the curb appeal we have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes 2 things can not really occupy the very same area. This is the case of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Often in these cases tree removal is the sole solution and if you are really feeling down about extracting your best-loved tree you can always plant another one. Albeit it may not mature in our life-time our kids or somebody else’s kids may enjoy it.
Liability issues: We are not lawyers but here is the way in which falling trees are often translated based upon the law. If the tree was not obviously dead or diseased you are not considered to be negligent or liable for the tree dropping down. You clear away the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is responsible for tree removal and repairs to his premises. You are only liable 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 clause pointing out that they are exempt for dead 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 clause concerning dead or diseased trees. On the other hand if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to safeguard yourself is to notify them in writing and let them find out 99 % of professional tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your home you can use the written notice to place the expense of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know of many homeowners who like to clean gutters. We actually could start a gutter cleaning business with the quantity of calls we get looking for a good cheap gutter cleaner. Almost everyone wants to have a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the inexpensive kind I know aren’t insured and that is why I refuse to recommend them. However clogged gutters are worse than not having gutters whatsoever. Congested downspouts trigger the water to overflow onto the face(fascia) boards and water caught behind the gutters causes these 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 in the event that you get fed up with that we are a tree removal expert.
Peace of Mind: We oftentimes remove trees because some people lay awake on blustery nights due to a certain tree or trees that move 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 take out all large trees inside of close quarters. It could be costly to remove a load of trees near your Howells NY home and sometimes this gets rid of the fear but leaves some regret. Typically fears could be relieved by having a tree service pro evaluate the trees to make sure none of these have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree requires to be cleared away you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. Just plant a brand new native tree at a better location on your estate and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you do not have space on your property but still would like 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 choose the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a couple seeded in a non harvest site within New York or even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
