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: Once in a while storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is a good idea to have any tree that has recently lost a sizable limb surveyed by a tree professional who can possibly do a risk assessment on the tree to verify more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service totally free. Injured trees are most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always warrant tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals provide free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a home is a total “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade that trees provide lowers cooling bills in the summer and provides a barrier against the winter wind. However the reduction in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance bills to increase (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees close to houses can also help unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter the attic. A client of ours had us take down some trees touching on his house owing to a family of squirrels which had penetrated his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a bunch of money having someone trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and afterwards had to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In situations where limbs are effectively in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or home siding.
Often whenever a tree is too close to a home we can simply trim or cut back the tree limbs away from the house but if lots of limbs need to be taken off it can 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 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 way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always advised to carry out some research or refer to a landscape professional when deciding on a location for trees around a house or driveway. Often people fail to envisage 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 subsequent owner to have to locate a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Thanks to their size trees can overshadow smaller plants. Property owners ought to go for bushes or shrubs which will tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they have to live with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that isn’t performing well under a tree could be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only flourish in full direct sunlight. Whilst it may be more affordable to remove the tree| if you really love the tree you may consult a landscape company about switching to a different sort of grass to save the tree.
Impact on home value: While the best tree in the correct location can easily boost a property’s value the wrong tree can hurt a home’s value. Often times we can enhance the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is simply removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. However in certain cases to improve the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes 2 things can not really inhabit the same site. Such is the scenario of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Oftentimes in these scenarios tree removal is the only choice and if you are really feeling depressed about extracting your best-loved tree you can always plant another one. Even though it doesn’t mature in our life time our children or somebody else’s kids can take joy in it.
Liability issues: We are certainly not legal representatives but here is the way fallen trees are commonly translated according to the law. Assuming that the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not deemed to be negligent or to blame for the tree dropping down. You remove the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is responsible with respect to tree removal and repairs to his premises. You are only liable 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 stipulation saying that these companies are not responsible for lifeless or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you may be held accountable for damages 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 next-door neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to safeguard yourself is to notify them in writing and let them know 99 % of competent tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your residence you can use the written notification to position the expense of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know of many property owners who like to clean gutters. We literally could start a gutter cleaning business with the number of phone calls we get seeking out a good affordable gutter cleaner. Everyone would like a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the cheap ones I know typically aren’t insured and as a result I refuse to refer them. Having said that clogged gutters are more frustrating than not possessing 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. Alternatively 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 expert.
Peace of Mind: We frequently remove trees because some people lay awake on windy nights because of a certain tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over the house. Unfortunately the sole way to make certain a tree doesn’t fall on the house is to clear away all large trees within striking distance. It can be expensive to remove a number of trees near your Middletown NY house and often this alleviates the fear but leaves some regret. Often fears could be soothed 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 requires to be cleared away you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. Just simply plant a new native tree at a more desirable location on your estate 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 provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They sow a tree for every dollar donated and you can even choose the location by US State or country. Chop down a tree in your yard and have a couple cultivated in a non harvest area within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
