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: Occasionally 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 lost a sizable limb assessed by a tree professional who can possibly do a risk evaluation on the tree to ascertain more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service free of charge. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always require tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals carry out free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a house is a total “catch 22” state of affairs. On the one hand the shade which trees render reduces cooling bills in the summer time and provides a barrier against the winter wind. On the other hand the drop in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance bills to grow (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees close to houses can also help unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to get into the attic. A customer of ours had us take down some trees touching his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had penetrated his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a bunch of money having somebody trap and remove the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and then needed to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In scenarios where limbs are effectively touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can result in damaged shingles or home siding.
Often if a tree is too near to a house we can just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from your home but if a lot of limbs need to be taken off it might cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be better to remove the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or just opt for a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots may clog up your septic system| or they could crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or building. Since there is no other to stop this other than tree removal it is always best to conduct some research or consult 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 might plan to sell theÂ property before it reaches maturity leaving the new owner to have to locate a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: As a result of their overall size trees can dominate smaller plants. Home-owners should certainly go for bushes or shrubs which have the ability to tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they have to deal with a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that isn’t performing well beneath a tree could be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only flourish in full direct sunlight. Although it may be less costly to take out the tree| if you really love the tree you might just speak with a landscape company about changing to a different kind of grass to save the tree.
Impact on home value: While the right tree in the proper location can easily improve a homes value the wrong tree can impact property’s value. Oftentimes we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. Having said that at times to enhance the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees often 2 things can not really occupy the same area. This is the instance of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Oftentimes in these situations tree removal is the only choice and if you are really feeling depressed about getting rid of your favorite tree you can always plant another one. Even though it doesn’t mature in our life-time our kids or somebody else’s children may appreciate it.
Liability issues: are certainly not lawyers but this is the way in which falling trees are often translated according to the law. In the case that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be neglectful or at fault for the tree dropping down. You clear away the section of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is liable when it comes to tree removal and repair works to his property. You are only responsible for your property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the next-door neighbor could sue and several insurance policies have a provision stating that they are not responsible for lifeless or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you could 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 neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to safeguard yourself is to advise them in writing and let them find out 99 % of professional tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your residence you can use the written notification to position the cost of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know of many people that like to clean out gutters. We literally could start a gutter cleaning operation with the amount of calls we get trying to find a good affordable gutter cleaner. Every one wants a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the low-cost ones I know typically aren’t insured and for this reason I refuse to refer them. Having said that clogged gutters are more frustrating than not possessing gutters at all. Congested downspouts trigger the water to overflow onto the face(fascia) boards and water caught behind the gutters causes them 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 after all the leaves have fallen and if you get fed up with that we are a tree removal expert.
Peace of Mind: We oftentimes remove trees because some people lay awake on windy night-times because of a particular tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their residence. The fact is the sole way to make certain a tree will never fall on the home is to take out all large trees within close quarters. It may be costly to remove a number of trees near your Monroe NY residential property and often this alleviates the fear but leaves some remorse. Commonly fears can be appeased by having a tree service company inspect the trees to make sure none of these have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree needs to be taken down you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Simply plant a fresh native tree at a more desirable location on your estate and you are doing your part to renew the growth cycle. If you don’t have room on your property but still wish to make a contribution you can make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They grow 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 seeded in a non harvest area within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
