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 a good practice to take any tree that has lost a significant limb surveyed by a tree professional who should do a risk assessment on the tree to check more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service free of cost. Injured trees are most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always require tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals perform free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a property is a real “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade that trees offer lowers cooling bills in the hot months and provides a barrier against the winter wind. Meanwhile the drop in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenses to grow (this is covered in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees beside houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to get into the attic. A customer of ours had us take down some trees touching on his house owing to a family of squirrels which had penetrated his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent 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 rewire the loft. In situations where limbs are actually touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can cause damaged shingles or home siding.
Occasionally if a tree is very near to a property we may just trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if several limbs need to be removed it could cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be more suitable to remove the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or just go for a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will clog up your septic system| or they might crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or home. Since there is no other to prevent this other than tree removal it is always prudent to conduct some research or hire a landscape professional when choosing on a location for trees around a home or driveway. Often people fail to envisage the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they might plan to sell theÂ home before it reaches maturity leaving the new owner to require to pay a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their size trees can overshadow small plants. Homeowners should certainly pick bushes or shrubs which can tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they need to deal with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well underneath a tree can be assisted by stepping up water and fertilizer but some lawns only flourish in full sun light. While it may be less expensive to remove the tree| if you love the tree you might speak with a landscape expert about switching to a different sort of grass to save the tree.
Impact on home value: While the right tree in the right location can increase a property’s worth the inappropriate tree can hurt a home’s value. In many cases we can improve the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is merely removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. However in some cases to enhance the curb appeal we have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes two things can not occupy the very same location. Such is the case of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Often in these circumstances tree removal is the only option and if you are really feeling down about taking out your beloved tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it doesn’t mature in our life-time our children or someone else’s kids can appreciate it.
Liability issues: We are certainly not legal professionals however here is how fallen trees are typically interpreted according to the law. On the assumption that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be neglectful or liable for the tree dropping down. You clear away the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is obligated when it comes to tree removal and repair works to his property. You are actually only responsible for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or unhealthy the neighbor could file suit and a few insurance policies have a provision pointing out that they are not responsible for perished or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you could be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s residential property and your insurance will not pay if they have a clause concerning dead or diseased trees. On the other side if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the best way to protect yourself is to advise them in writing and let them know 99 % of competent tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your home you can use the written notification to position the cost of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know of many property owners that like to clean gutters. We actually could start a gutter maintenance company with the amount of telephone calls we get looking for a good affordable gutter cleaning service. Everybody would like a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-priced kind I know aren’t insured and that is why I refuse to recommend them. Having said that clogged gutters are more frustrating compared to not having gutters at all. Congested 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 put in 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 if you get fed up with that we are a tree removal expert.
Peace of Mind: We frequently remove trees because some people lay awake on windy nights as a result of a specific tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over their house. The fact is the sole way to make certain a tree does not fall on the house is to clear away all large trees within close quarters. It may be downright costly to remove a bunch of trees near your Middletown NY home and sometimes this gets rid of the fear but leaves behind some regret. Typically fears can be relieved by having a tree service expert assess the trees to make certain none of these have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree has to be taken down you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. Just plant a fresh native tree at a more desirable location on your property and you are doing your part to renew the growth cycle. If you don’t have space on your property but still want to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They grow a tree for every dollar donated and you can also specify the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a couple sown in a non harvest location within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
