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 Huguenot 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: Usually storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is still a good practice to have each and every tree that has likely lost a substantial limb checked out 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 offer this service for free. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always warrant tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals perform free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a house is a real “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade which trees render decreases cooling costs in the summer time and provides a buffer against the winter wind. On the other hand the decrease in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance costs to grow (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees close to houses can also make it possible for unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to penetrate the attic. A client of ours had us take down some trees touching his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had penetrated his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a bunch of money having somebody trap and remove the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then had to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In situations where limbs are actually touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can result in damaged shingles or home siding.
Sometimes when a tree is very close to a house we can just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from the house but if lots of limbs need to be removed it could cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be more suitable to remove the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or just look for a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots may clog up your septic system| or they can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or home. Since there is no alternative way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always best to carry out some research or refer to a landscape company when choosing on a location for trees around a house or driveway. Often people fail to understand the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they just plan to sell theÂ property before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to require to hire a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their size trees can dominate much smaller plants. House owners should certainly select bushes or shrubs which will tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they will have to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that isn’t performing well beneath a tree can be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only do well in full sunlight. Even though it may be more affordable to take out the tree| if you really like the tree you might consult a landscape company about changing to a different kind of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the right tree in the proper location may increase a property’s value the inappropriate tree can impact a home’s value. Often times we can boost 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 in some cases to enhance the curb appeal we have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees at times two things can not inhabit the same location. This is the case of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Usually in these circumstances tree removal is the only option and if you are really feeling down about clearing away your beloved tree you can always plant a different one. Even though it does not mature in our lifespan our children or someone else’s kids may well enjoy it.
Liability issues: We are not legal representatives but here is the way in which falling trees are usually interpreted according to the law. On the assumption that the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be neglectful or liable for the tree falling. You dispose of the chunk of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is obligated with regard to tree removal and repair works to his premises. You are only liable for your residential property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the neighbor could sue and a few insurance policies have a clause pointing out that they are exempt for lifeless or diseased trees. If this were to happen you can be held accountable for damages 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 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 house you can use the written notification to position the fee of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know many property owners that like to clean gutters. We actually could start a gutter cleaning operation with the quantity of calls we receive seeking out a good inexpensive gutter cleaner. Everybody would like a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-priced ones I know typically aren’t insured and consequently I refuse to recommend them. However clogged gutters are more frustrating compared to not having gutters at all. Obstructed downspouts cause the water to overflow into the face(fascia) boards and water trapped behind the gutters causes these to rot. So that requires you to put in a gutter cap like http://www.leafguard.com or http://www.gutterguardian.com. Or else clean them yearly shortly 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 simply because some people lay awake on blustery night-times due to a specific tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over the house. The fact is the only way to guarantee a tree doesn’t fall on the house is to take out all big trees inside of striking distance. It can possibly be costly to remove a load of trees near your Huguenot NY residential property and sometimes this alleviates the fear but leaves behind some regret. Often fears can be relieved by having a tree service expert inspect the trees to ensure none of these have any flaws that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree needs to be taken down you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree executioner. Simply plant a brand new native tree at a more desirable location on your property and you are doing your part to renew 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 every dollar donated and you can even choose the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a few planted in a non harvest location within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
