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: Sometimes storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is a good practice to take every tree that has recently lost a substantial limb surveyed by a tree professional that may do a risk evaluation on the tree to verify 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 necessitate tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals make available free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a residence is a real “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade which trees render reduces cooling costs in the summer time and provides a barrier against the winter wind. However the decrease in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenditures to grow (this is covered in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees next to houses can also permit unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter into the attic. A customer of ours had us take down some trees touching his house because 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| and afterwards had to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In scenarios where limbs are actually touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can cause damaged roof shingles or home siding.
Occasionally if a tree is too close to a home we will be able to just trim or cut back 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 which case it may be more effective to remove the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or basically opt for 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 alternative way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always advised to do some research or refer to a landscape professional when choosing on a location for trees around a house or driveway. Often people fail to comprehend the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they just plan to sell theÂ property before it reaches maturity leaving the subsequent owner to require to find a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: As a result of their size trees can dominate smaller plants. Homeowners should go for bushes or shrubs that are able to tolerate the competition for sunlight 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 could be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only do well in full sunshine. While it may be less expensive to remove the tree| if you enjoy the tree you might just speak with a landscape expert about switching to a different sort of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the best tree in the right location can certainly improve a property’s value the inappropriate tree can impact a home’s value. Oftentimes we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is just simply removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your home from the road. However in some cases to enhance the curb appeal we will have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically two things can not really inhabit the same location. This is the scenario of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Generally in these circumstances tree removal is the only choice and if you are feeling down about getting rid of your beloved tree you can always plant another one. Even if it will not mature in our life time our children or somebody else’s kids may appreciate it.
Liability issues: are not lawyers but this is how falling trees are typically translated based upon the law. In the event that the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be negligent or at fault for the tree falling. You dispose of the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is responsible with regard to tree removal and repairs to his property. You are actually only responsible for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the next-door neighbor could file suit and some insurance policies have a provision saying that these companies are exempt for dead or diseased 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 concerning dead or diseased trees. On the other side if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the best way to safeguard yourself is to advise them in writing and let them know 99 % of professional tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your house you can use the written notice to place the fee of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know many people who like to clean out gutters. We literally could start a gutter cleaning company with the amount of calls we receive searching for a good cheap gutter cleaner. Almost everyone wants to have a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the low-cost kind I know typically aren’t insured and consequently I refuse to recommend them. Unfortunately clogged gutters are much worse than not having gutters whatsoever. Clogged 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. Otherwise clean them yearly shortly after all the leaves have fallen and if 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 stormy nights as a result of a particular tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over the house. The fact is the only way to make sure a tree will never fall on the home is to clear away all large trees inside of striking distance. It may be expensive to remove a lot of trees near your Middletown NY residential property and often this eases the fear but leaves some remorse. Commonly fears can be calmed by having a tree service expert evaluate the trees to ensure none of them have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. In the event that a tree needs to be cleared away you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Just plant a brand-new native tree at a more desirable location on your estate 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 plant a tree for each dollar donated and you can even 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.
