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 Monroe 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 still a good practice to take any tree that has definitely lost a sizable limb examined by a tree professional that can possibly do a risk assessment on the tree to ascertain 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 warrant tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals provide free inspections.

Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a home is a real “catch 22” state of affairs. On the one hand the shade that trees render reduces cooling expenditures in the summer and provides a buffer from the winter wind. Meanwhile the drop in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance expenses to increase (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees next to houses can also make it possible for unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to get into the attic. A client of ours had us remove some trees touching his house because a family of squirrels which had penetrated his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a lot of money having somebody 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 constant swaying of the trees can result in damaged shingles or home siding.

Often if a tree is very close to a home we can just trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if lots of limbs need to be removed it may cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be more effective to take out the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or just simply choose on a more suitable location.

Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will clog up your septic system| or they could crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or foundation. Since there is no other to stop this other than tree removal it is always prudent to do some research or refer to a landscape professional when choosing on a location for trees around a building or driveway. Often people fail to envisage the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they might plan to sell the building before it reaches maturity leaving the new owner to require to hire a professional tree service to remove the tree.

Impact on surrounding landscape: Because of their scale trees can dominate much smaller plants. Property owners should certainly decide on bushes or shrubs which have the ability to tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they have to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that is not performing well underneath a tree can be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only prosper in full sunlight. Even though it may be less costly to remove the tree| if you love the tree you might just speak with a landscape professional about changing to a different sort of grass to spare the tree.

Impact on home value:  While the best tree in the proper location can certainly increase a property’s market value the wrong tree can damage a home’s value. Often we can enhance the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is just simply getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your home from the road. Unfortunately in certain cases to improve the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.

Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees at times 2 things can not occupy the very same area. This is the scenario of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Generally in these cases tree removal is the sole solution and if you are really feeling depressed about taking out your treasured tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it does not mature in our life-time our kids or someone else’s kids may well enjoy it.

Liability issues: Our people are not lawyers however here is insights on how falling trees are typically interpreted based upon the law. In the case that the tree was not clearly dead or diseased you are not deemed to be negligent or to blame for the tree falling. You dispose of the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is responsible when it comes 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 perished or diseased the neighbor could file suit and several insurance policies have a provision stating that they are not responsible for dead or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you can be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s residential 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 safeguard yourself is to notify them in writing and let them find out 99 % of competent tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your house you can use the written notification to place the fee of removal on your neighbor.

Maintenance: I don’t know of many individuals who like to clean gutters. We really could start a gutter maintenance company with the quantity of calls we get trying to find a good affordable gutter cleaning service. Every one wants a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the inexpensive ones I know aren’t insured and that is why I refuse to recommend them. However clogged gutters are more frustrating than not possessing gutters whatsoever. Obstructed downspouts trigger the water to overflow onto 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 specialist.

Peace of Mind: We frequently remove trees because some people lay awake on windy nights as a result of a certain tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their residence. The fact is the sole way to make sure a tree doesn’t fall on the home is to take down all big trees inside of striking distance. It may be downright costly to remove a great deal of trees near your Monroe NY residential property and sometimes this eliminates the fear but leaves some remorse. Often 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 more than normal threat. In the event that a tree has to be taken down you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. Simply plant a new native tree at a more desirable location on your property 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 provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They plant a tree for each dollar donated and you can even choose the location by US State or country. Chop down a tree in your yard and have a few cultivated in a non harvest area within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
