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 take every tree that has lost a sizable limb inspected by a tree professional that 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 more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always necessitate tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals offer free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a house is a real “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade that trees offer reduces cooling costs in the summer season and provides a barrier against the winter wind. Meanwhile the decrease in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance expenditures to increase (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees beside houses can also permit unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to penetrate the attic. A customer of ours had us take down some trees touching his house thanks to 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| and afterwards needed to re-insulate and rewire the attic. In scenarios where limbs are effectively touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can result in damaged roof shingles or home siding.
In some cases if a tree is too close to a house we will be able to just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from your home but if a lot of limbs need to be removed it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be more suitable to remove the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or basically make a decision on a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will clog up your septic system| or they can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or foundation. Since there is no other to prevent this other than tree removal it is always prudent to do some research or hire a landscape company 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 might plan to sell theÂ property before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to require to locate a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Thanks to their overall size trees can dominate smaller plants. Home owners ought to go with bushes or shrubs that can tolerate the competition for sun light and water or they have to live with a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that isn’t performing well under a tree could be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only prosper in full sunlight. Even though it may be more affordable to take out the tree| if you enjoy the tree you could seek advice from a landscape professional about changing to a different kind of grass to save the tree.
Impact on home value: While the perfect tree in the correct location can boost a property’s resale value the wrong tree can damage property’s value. Often times we can boost the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is simply clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. However at times to boost the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically 2 things can not inhabit the very same spot. This is the scenario of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Often in these instances tree removal is the only option and if you are really feeling depressed about clearing away your beloved tree you can always plant another one. Even if it will not mature in our life time our kids or someone else’s kids may well enjoy it.
Liability issues: Our people are not lawyer or attorneys however here is insights on how fallen trees are often translated based upon the law. On the assumption that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not deemed to be neglectful or at fault for the tree falling. You clear away 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 responsible for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the next-door neighbor could file suit and a few insurance policies have a provision pointing out that they are exempt for perished or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you can 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 neighbor with a dead tree the best way to protect 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 notification to place the expense of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I do not know many homeowners who like to clean out gutters. We actually could start a gutter maintenance operation with the quantity of phone calls we receive seeking out a good affordable gutter cleaning service. Everyone wants to have a cheap gutter cleaner but all the cheap ones I know aren’t insured and that is why I refuse to recommend them. Nevertheless clogged gutters are worse than not having gutters whatsoever. Congested 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 install a gutter cap like http://www.leafguard.com or http://www.gutterguardian.com. Or else clean them yearly soon 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 often remove trees simply because some people lay awake on windy night-times because of a particular tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their residence. The fact is the only way to make certain a tree doesn’t fall on the home is to take down all big trees inside of close quarters. It can possibly be downright costly to remove a great deal of trees near your Middletown NY home and often this eliminates the fear but leaves some regret. Often fears can be soothed by having a tree service company inspect the trees to make certain none of these have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. In the event that a tree has to be removed you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. Simply plant a fresh native tree at a far better location on your property and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you do not have room 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. Cut a tree in your yard and have a couple sown in a non harvest area within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
