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 any specific tree that has likely lost a good sized limb examined by a tree professional that can possibly do a risk evaluation on the tree to make sure more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service free of cost. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always require 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 render reduces cooling bills in the summer season and provides a buffer from the winter wind. However the decrease in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance costs to increase (this is covered in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees next to houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to gain access to the attic. A homeowner of ours had us remove some trees touching on his house due to the fact that a family of squirrels which had penetrated his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a lot of money having somebody trap and remove the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then afterwards had to re-insulate and re-wire the loft. In scenarios where limbs are actually in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or home siding.
In some cases when a tree is too near to a home we can just trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if a lot of limbs need to be taken off it could cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be far better to remove the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or simply think about a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots can sometimes clog up your septic system| or they could crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or foundation. Since there is no way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always prudent to conduct some research or consult with a landscape professional when choosing 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 just plan to sell theÂ home before it reaches maturity leaving the subsequent owner to have to locate a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: As a result of their size trees can overshadow much smaller plants. Property owners should certainly decide on bushes or shrubs which will tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they will have to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that is not performing well underneath a tree can be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only flourish in full sunshine. Whilst it may be less costly to take out the tree| if you love the tree you could seek advice from a landscape company about switching to a different kind of grass to save the tree.
Impact on home value: While the most ideal tree in the most appropriate location can improve a homes worth the inappropriate tree can damage 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 getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your property 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 occupy the same location. Such is the case of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Generally in these cases tree removal is the sole option and if you are feeling depressed about clearing away your favorite tree you can always plant another one. Albeit it does not mature in our life-time our children or someone else’s children may take joy in it.
Liability issues: We are not legal professionals but this is the way in which falling trees are usually interpreted according to the law. In the event that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not deemed to be negligent or at fault for the tree falling. You dispose of the part of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is obligated with regard to tree removal and repairs to his premises. You are actually only responsible for your property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is dead or unhealthy the next-door neighbor could file suit and a few insurance policies have a stipulation saying that these companies are not responsible for perished or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you may 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 hand if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to safeguard yourself is to advise them in writing and let them know 99 % of professional tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your residence you can use the written notice to place the fee of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I do not know of many individuals who like to clean gutters. We really could start a gutter maintenance company with the number of calls we get seeking out a good affordable gutter cleaner. Everybody wants a cheap gutter cleaner but all the inexpensive ones I know aren’t insured and as a result I refuse to refer them. Unfortunately clogged gutters are worse than not possessing gutters at all. Clogged up downspouts cause the water to overflow onto the face(fascia) boards and water trapped 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 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 times remove trees simply because some people lay awake on blustery nights as a result of a particular tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their house. Unfortunately the only way to guarantee a tree does not fall on the house is to clear away all large trees inside of close quarters. It can be pricey to remove a number of trees near your Middletown NY property and often this eases the fear but leaves behind some remorse. Commonly fears could be appeased by having a tree service pro inspect the trees to ensure none of these have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. In the event that a tree requires to be taken down you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. Just simply plant a fresh native tree at a much better location on your property and you are doing your part to renew the growth cycle. If you do not have space on your property but still would like to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They grow a tree for every single dollar donated and you can even specify the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a few seeded in a non harvest place within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
