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: Usually storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is a good practice to have every tree that has recently lost a pretty big limb checked by a tree professional who should do a risk evaluation on the tree to verify more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service free of charge. Injured trees are most 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 house is a real “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade which trees provide lowers cooling expenditures in the summer season and provides a buffer from the winter wind. However the reduction in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance bills to increase (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees beside houses can also enable unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to penetrate the attic. A customer of ours had us take down some trees touching on his house owing to a family of squirrels which had gotten in his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a lot of money having somebody trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and then needed to re-insulate and rewire the attic. In scenarios where limbs are effectively in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can cause damaged shingles or siding.
At times whenever a tree is too close to a home we may just trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if many limbs need to be cleared away it might cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be more effective to take out the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or basically pick and choose 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 property. Since there is no way to stop this other than tree removal it is always prudent to conduct some research or consult a landscape company when choosing on a location for trees around a building or driveway. Often people fail to anticipate the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they might 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: As a result of their overall size trees can overshadow smaller plants. Home-owners should certainly decide on bushes or shrubs which are able to tolerate the competition for sun light and water or they need to live with a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that is not performing well underneath a tree can be assisted by stepping up water and fertilizer but some grasses only do well in full sunlight. Although it may be less costly to remove the tree| if you enjoy the tree you might consult a landscape professional about switching to a different kind of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the most ideal tree in the appropriate location can certainly boost a property’s value the wrong tree can hurt property’s value. Often we can enhance the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is just simply getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your property from the road. Unfortunately in some cases to improve the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees often 2 things can not really occupy 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 sole alternative and if you are really feeling depressed about clearing away your beloved tree you can always plant a different one. Even though it may not mature in our lifespan our children or somebody else’s children may well appreciate it.
Liability issues: We are certainly not legal representatives but this is insights on how fallen trees are typically interpreted according to the law. Assuming that the tree was not obviously dead or diseased you are not considered to be negligent or to blame for the tree falling. You clear away the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is responsible when it comes to tree removal and repair works to his premises. You are only responsible for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or unhealthy the neighbor could sue and some insurance policies have a provision pointing out that they are not responsible for deceased or diseased 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 stipulation about dead or diseased trees. On the other side if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to safeguard 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 residence you can use the written notice to place the fee of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I do not know many homeowners who like to clean out gutters. We really could start a gutter maintenance company with the amount of calls we receive trying to find a good affordable gutter cleaner. Every one wants a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-cost kind I know typically aren’t insured and as a result I refuse to recommend them. Nevertheless clogged gutters are worse compared to not possessing gutters at all. Clogged up downspouts trigger the water to overflow onto 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. Alternatively clean them yearly soon after all the leaves have fallen and if you get fed up with that we are a tree removal specialist.
Peace of Mind: We oftentimes 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 the house. The fact is the only way to insure a tree will never fall on the house is to clear away all big trees within close quarters. It can be expensive to remove a lot of trees near your Middletown NY residential property and often this eases the fear but leaves behind some regret. Often fears could be calmed by having a tree service company examine the trees to make sure none of these have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. In the event that a tree requires to be cleared away you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Just plant a brand-new native tree at a much better location on your property and you are doing your part to renew 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 plant a tree for every dollar donated and you can even choose the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a few planted in a non harvest site within New York or even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
