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 Middletown 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 each and every tree that has lost a pretty big limb examined by a tree professional that can possibly do a risk assessment on the tree to make sure 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 necessitate tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals make available 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 provide lowers cooling bills in the summer and provides a buffer against the winter wind. However the drop in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenses to increase (this is covered in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees near to houses can also make it possible for unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to penetrate the attic. A homeowner of ours had us take down some trees touching on his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had penetrated his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a bunch of money having someone else trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then needed to re-insulate and rewire the attic. In cases where limbs are actually touching the house the constant swaying of the trees can result in damaged shingles or home siding.
Often whenever a tree is too near to a home we can just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from the house but if many limbs need to be taken off it may cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be far better to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or just pick a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots can sometimes clog up your septic system| or they can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or building. Since there is no way to stop this other than tree removal it is always advisable to do some research or consult with a landscape professional when choosing on a location for trees around a property 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 subsequent owner to have to locate a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Thanks to their scale trees can overshadow small plants. Property owners should certainly choose bushes or shrubs that can tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they need to deal with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that is not performing well beneath a tree can be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some grasses only flourish in full direct sunlight. While it may be less expensive to take out the tree| if you really like the tree you might consult a landscape professional about changing to a different sort of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the best tree in the most appropriate location may increase a property’s value the wrong tree can hurt property’s value. In many cases we can boost the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is merely getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your property from the road. Unfortunately at times to improve the curb appeal we will have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees at times 2 things can not really inhabit the very same spot. This is the scenario of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Often in these cases tree removal is the only choice and if you are feeling down about taking out your favorite tree you can always plant a different one. Even though it will not mature in our life time our children or someone else’s children may well take joy in it.
Liability issues: We are certainly not lawyer or attorneys however this is the way fallen trees are ordinarily interpreted according to the law. If the tree was not obviously dead or diseased you are not considered to be neglectful or liable for the tree dropping down. You remove the part of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is obligated for tree removal and repairs to his premises. You are actually only liable for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the next-door neighbor could file suit and several insurance policies have a clause stating that these companies are not responsible for dead or diseased trees. If this were to happen you may be held accountable for damages to the neighbor’s property and your insurance will not pay if they have a stipulation 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 home you can use the written notice to place the fee of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know many people that like to clean gutters. We really could start a gutter maintenance company with the amount of telephone calls we receive trying to find a good cheap gutter cleaner. Every one would like a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the inexpensive ones I know typically aren’t insured and for that reason I refuse to refer them. At the same time clogged gutters are much worse compared to not having gutters whatsoever. Clogged 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 right 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 often times remove trees because some people lay awake on blustery night-times because of a certain tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their residence. The fact is the sole way to insure a tree will never fall on the house is to remove all big trees inside of close quarters. It could be downright costly to remove a lot of trees near your Middletown NY residence and often this alleviates the fear but leaves some regret. Commonly fears can be appeased by having a tree service pro assess the trees to make certain none of them have any flaws that would make them a more than normal threat. In the event that a tree needs to be taken down you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree executioner. Simply plant a brand-new native tree at a much better location on your estate and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you don’t have room on your property but still would like to make a contribution you can make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They grow a tree for every single dollar donated and you can even specify the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a few seeded in a non harvest site within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
