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 still a good practice to take any tree that has likely lost a substantial limb examined by a tree professional that may do a risk evaluation on the tree to ascertain 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 warrant tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals perform free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a house is a real “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade that trees render decreases cooling costs in the summer season and provides a barrier against the winter wind. On the other hand the decrease in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance bills to grow (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees next to houses can also enable unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to penetrate the attic. A client of ours had us take down some trees touching on his house due to the fact that a family of squirrels which had gotten in his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a bunch of money having someone else trap and remove the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then needed to re-insulate and re-wire the loft. In cases where limbs are actually in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or siding.
In some cases if a tree is too near to a house we may simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if lots of limbs need to be removed it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be far better to remove the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or basically consider 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 foundation. Since there is no way to stop this other than tree removal it is always prudent to do some research or consult with a landscape company when deciding 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 may plan to sell theÂ property before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to require to find a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Because of their proportions trees can overshadow small plants. Home owners should certainly choose bushes or shrubs which have the ability to tolerate the competition for sun light and water or they have to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that isn’t performing well underneath a tree could be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only prosper in full direct sunlight. Although it may be more affordable to take out the tree| if you enjoy the tree you might consult a landscape expert about switching to a different sort of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the right tree in the correct location can certainly improve a homes resale value the wrong tree can hurt property’s value. In many cases we can enhance the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is merely clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. However sometimes to improve the curb appeal we will have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees at times two things can not really inhabit the same spot. Such is the instance of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Usually in these circumstances tree removal is the sole option and if you are feeling depressed about extracting your treasured tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it will not mature in our life time our kids or somebody else’s kids may take joy in it.
Liability issues: We are not lawyer or attorneys however here is insights on how falling trees are generally translated based upon the law. In the case that the tree was not clearly dead or diseased you are not deemed to be negligent or liable for the tree falling. You clear away the part of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is responsible when it comes to tree removal and repair works to his property. You are actually only responsible for your residential property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the neighbor could sue and some insurance policies have a provision stating that these companies are exempt for perished 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 clause about dead or diseased trees. On the flip side if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the best way to safeguard yourself is to notify them in writing and let them know 99 % of professional tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your home you can use the written notification to place the cost of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I do not know many property owners that like to clean gutters. We really could start a gutter cleaning business with the number of telephone calls we receive searching for a good affordable gutter cleaning service. Everybody wants to have a cheap gutter cleaner but all the cheap ones I know typically aren’t insured and for that reason I refuse to recommend them. Nevertheless clogged gutters are worse than not having gutters whatsoever. Blocked downspouts trigger the water to overflow into the face(fascia) boards and water caught behind the gutters causes them to rot. So that requires you to install a gutter cap like http://www.leafguard.com or http://www.gutterguardian.com. Alternatively 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 blustery night-times due to a particular tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over the house. Unfortunately the sole way to insure a tree will never fall on the house is to remove all big trees within striking distance. It can possibly be pricey to remove a great deal of trees near your Middletown NY house and sometimes this eliminates the fear but leaves behind some regret. Typically fears could be relieved by having a tree service professional inspect the trees to make sure none of these have any defects that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree needs to be removed you 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 wish to make a contribution you can make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They grow a tree for every dollar donated and you can also choose the location by US State or country. Chop down a tree in your yard and have a couple planted in a non harvest place within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
