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 idea to have any specific tree that has definitely lost a significant limb checked by a tree professional who may do a risk assessment on the tree to verify more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service totally free. Injured trees are most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always require tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals provide free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a house is a total “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade which trees render decreases cooling bills in the summer season and provides a buffer from the winter wind. Meanwhile the drop in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance bills to increase (this is covered 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 get into the attic. A homeowner of ours had us take down some trees touching on his house thanks 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 someone else trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and then needed to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In cases where limbs are effectively in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or home siding.
Sometimes if a tree is too near to a property we will be able to just trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if lots of limbs need to be taken off it could cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be better to remove the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or just figure out a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots may clog up your septic system| or they could crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or home. Since there is no way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always advised to conduct some research or consult with a landscape company when choosing on a location for trees around a property or driveway. Often people fail to comprehend the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they may plan to sell theÂ building before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to have to locate a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their size trees can overshadow smaller plants. Homeowners should certainly choose bushes or shrubs that can tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they need to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that is not performing well underneath a tree could be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only do well in full sunlight. While it may be more affordable to take out the tree| if you love the tree you may seek advice from a landscape expert about changing to a different kind of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the best tree in the most appropriate location can easily increase a homes value the inappropriate tree can impact property’s value. Often times we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is simply clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your property from the road. Having said that sometimes to improve the curb appeal we have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes two things can not really inhabit the same area. This is the instance of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Generally in these instances tree removal is the only option and if you are feeling depressed about extracting your treasured tree you can always plant another one. Albeit it doesn’t mature in our life-time our children or someone else’s kids may well enjoy it.
Liability issues: We are not legal representatives but here is the way falling trees are typically interpreted according to the law. If the tree was not obviously dead or diseased you are not deemed to be neglectful or at fault for the tree falling. You remove the part of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is liable with respect to tree removal and repairs to his premises. You are only liable for your residential property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is dead or unhealthy the next-door neighbor could sue and some insurance policies have a clause pointing out that these companies are exempt for lifeless or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you might be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s property and your insurance will not pay if they have a stipulation about dead or diseased trees. On the flip side if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to protect yourself is to advise 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 house you can use the written notification to place the cost of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I do not know of many property owners who like to clean out gutters. We actually could start a gutter cleaning operation with the amount of telephone calls we get looking for a good affordable gutter cleaner. Every one wants to have a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the low-priced kind I know aren’t insured and therefore I refuse to recommend them. At the same time clogged gutters are worse than not possessing gutters whatsoever. Clogged up downspouts cause 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 soon after all the leaves have fallen and if 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 stormy nights due to a certain tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over their residence. Unfortunately the sole way to guarantee a tree will never fall on the house is to take down all large trees inside of striking distance. It may be pricey to remove a number of trees near your Middletown NY residence and sometimes this gets rid of the fear but leaves some regret. Typically fears can be relieved by having a tree service company assess the trees to ensure none of these have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree needs to be removed you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree executioner. Just simply plant a new native tree at a better location on your property and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you don’t have space on your property but still would like to make a contribution you can make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They sow a tree for every dollar donated and you can even specify 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 opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
