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 idea to take any specific tree that has recently lost a pretty big limb inspected by a tree professional that should do a risk evaluation on the tree to check more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service for free. Injured trees are most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always warrant tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals perform free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a property is a real “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade which trees provide decreases cooling costs in the hot months and provides a buffer from the winter wind. On the other hand the reduction in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance expenditures to grow (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees close to houses can also make it possible for unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter the attic. A homeowner of ours had us remove some trees touching his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent 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 rewire the attic. In situations where limbs are actually in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can cause damaged shingles or home siding.
In some cases if a tree is very close to a home we can simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if several limbs need to be taken off it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be far better to remove the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or basically make a decision on a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots can sometimes clog up your septic system| or they might crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or home. Since there is no other to prevent this other than tree removal it is always prudent to conduct some research or consult with a landscape company when choosing on a location for trees around a building or driveway. Often people fail to understand the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they may plan to sell theÂ home 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: Thanks to their scale trees can overshadow smaller plants. Homeowners should choose bushes or shrubs which are able to tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they need to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well under a tree could be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only prosper in full sunlight. Even though it may be less costly to take out the tree| if you love the tree you may speak with 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 correct location can improve a property’s resale value the inappropriate tree can damage property’s value. Often we can enhance the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your property from the road. However sometimes to improve the curb appeal we will have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically 2 things can not really inhabit the same area. This is the scenario of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Generally in these cases tree removal is the only solution and if you are feeling depressed about taking out your favorite tree you can always plant another one. Albeit it will not mature in our lifetime our children or someone else’s children may well enjoy it.
Liability issues: Our people are not attorneys but this is the way falling trees are generally translated according to the law. In the case that the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not deemed to be negligent or to blame for the tree falling. You clear away the part of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is liable for 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 some insurance policies have a stipulation stating that they are exempt for lifeless 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 side 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 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 position the cost of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know many property owners who like to clean gutters. We really could start a gutter maintenance operation with the amount of telephone calls we receive seeking out a good low-cost gutter cleaner. Everyone would like a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the low-priced kind I know aren’t insured and as a result I refuse to recommend them. Unfortunately clogged gutters are much worse than not possessing gutters at all. Obstructed downspouts trigger 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. Otherwise clean them yearly right 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 often times remove trees simply because some people lay awake on stormy nights because of a particular tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over their property. The fact is the sole way to insure a tree will never fall on the house is to remove all large trees within close quarters. It can possibly be pricey to remove a lot of trees near your Howells NY property and often this eliminates the fear but leaves some remorse. Commonly fears could be relieved by having a tree service company examine the trees to make certain none of these have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. In the event that a tree needs to be removed you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Just simply plant a brand-new native tree at a more desirable 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 make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They plant a tree for every dollar donated and you can also choose the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a couple seeded in a non harvest place within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
