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: Occasionally storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is still a good idea to have any tree that has definitely lost a pretty big limb inspected by a tree professional that should do a risk assessment on the tree to verify more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service free of cost. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always warrant tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals make available free inspections.

Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a house is a total “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade that trees render lowers cooling expenditures in the summertime and provides a buffer from the winter wind. However the drop in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance bills to increase (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees beside houses can also help unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to gain access to the attic. A homeowner of ours had us remove 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 shelled out a lot of money having somebody trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and afterwards needed to re-insulate and re-wire the loft. In situations where limbs are effectively touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or siding.

Occasionally whenever a tree is very near to a house we will be able to just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from the house but if a lot of limbs need to be taken off it may cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be more suitable to take out the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or just simply 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 can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or property. Since there is no other to prevent this other than tree removal it is always prudent to conduct some research or hire a landscape company when deciding 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 might plan to sell the home before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to have to hire a professional tree service to take out the tree.

Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their proportions trees can overshadow small plants. Home-owners should go for bushes or shrubs that will tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they have to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that is not performing well beneath a tree can be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only do well in full direct sunlight. While it may be less costly to take out the tree| if you really love the tree you may consult a landscape company about changing to a different type of grass to spare the tree.

Impact on home value:  While the most ideal tree in the proper location can easily improve a homes value the inappropriate tree can hurt property’s value. In many cases we can improve the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is merely clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your house from the road. Having said that in certain cases to enhance the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.

Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees at times 2 things can not really inhabit the same site. Such is the scenario of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Oftentimes in these instances tree removal is the sole choice and if you are really feeling down about removing your treasured tree you can always plant another one. Albeit it does not mature in our life-time our kids or somebody else’s children may enjoy it.

Liability issues: Our people are certainly not legal professionals however here is insights on how falling trees are typically translated based upon the law. If the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not deemed to be neglectful or liable for the tree dropping down. You remove the part of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is liable with regard to tree removal and repairs to his property. You are actually only liable for your residential property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is dead or unhealthy the neighbor could file suit and several insurance policies have a provision stating that these companies are not responsible for perished 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 hand if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to safeguard yourself is to notify them in writing and let them find out 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 expense of removal on your next-door neighbor.

Maintenance: I don’t know of many homeowners who like to clean out gutters. We literally could start a gutter cleaning business with the amount of telephone calls we receive seeking out a good cheap gutter cleaning service. Almost everyone wants a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-priced ones I know typically aren’t insured and therefore I refuse to refer them. At the same time clogged gutters are worse compared to not possessing gutters whatsoever. Clogged up downspouts trigger 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. Otherwise clean them yearly shortly 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 frequently remove trees simply because some people lay awake on windy nights due to a specific tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their house. Unfortunately the sole way to make certain a tree will never fall on the home is to clear away all large trees inside of close quarters. It could be downright costly to remove a load of trees near your Middletown NY property and sometimes this alleviates the fear but leaves some remorse. Often fears could be soothed by having a tree service expert evaluate the trees to make certain none of these have any defects that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree has to be removed you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Simply plant a 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 space on your property but still wish to make a contribution you can make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They plant a tree for every single dollar donated and you can even specify the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a few planted in a non harvest location within New York or even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
