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 Montgomery 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 likely lost a large limb looked over by a tree professional that can do a risk evaluation on the tree to ensure that more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service for free. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always warrant tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals perform free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a home is a total “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade that trees provide reduces cooling expenditures in the summer months and provides a buffer from the winter wind. However the reduction in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance costs to increase (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees near to houses can also make it possible for unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to get into the attic. A customer of ours had us remove some trees touching on his house because a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a lot of money having somebody trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and afterwards had to re-insulate and rewire the attic. In cases where limbs are actually in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can result in damaged roof shingles or home siding.
Often if a tree is too close to a house we may simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if many limbs need to be removed it might cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be better to remove the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or just select 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 alternative way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always best to conduct some research or refer to a landscape company when choosing on a location for trees around a home or driveway. Often people fail to envisage 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: A result of their scale trees can dominate much smaller plants. Property owners should certainly pick bushes or shrubs which can 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 isn’t performing well beneath a tree can be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some lawns only do well in full sun light. Although it may be more affordable to remove the tree| if you really love the tree you might consult a landscape company about switching to a different kind of grass to save the tree.
Impact on home value: While the right tree in the most appropriate location may boost a homes resale value the wrong tree can damage property’s value. Often we can enhance the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is just simply clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your house from the road. Having said that in some cases to boost the curb appeal we have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees often two things can not really inhabit the very same location. Such is the instance of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Oftentimes in these cases tree removal is the only solution and if you are feeling down about getting rid of your best-loved tree you can always plant a different one. Albeit it doesn’t mature in our lifespan our children or someone else’s children can appreciate it.
Liability issues: We are certainly not legal professionals however this is the way in which falling trees are generally interpreted based upon the law. Assuming that the tree was not obviously dead or diseased you are not considered to be negligent or to blame for the tree falling. You clear away the chunk of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is responsible for tree removal and repair works to his property. You are actually only liable for your residential property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the next-door neighbor could sue and several insurance policies have a clause saying that they are not responsible for perished or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you might 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 best way to protect 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 next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know of many individuals that like to clean out gutters. We actually could start a gutter cleaning operation with the number of telephone calls we get searching for a good inexpensive gutter cleaning service. Every one would like a cheap gutter cleaner but all the cheap ones I know typically aren’t insured and therefore I refuse to recommend them. However clogged gutters are worse than not possessing gutters at all. Clogged up downspouts cause 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 oftentimes remove trees because some people lay awake on stormy night-times because of a particular tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over the house. Unfortunately the only way to make sure a tree does not fall on the house is to take down all large trees within close quarters. It can possibly be pricey to remove a great deal of trees near your Montgomery NY property and sometimes this eliminates the fear but leaves behind some regret. Often fears can be soothed by having a tree service professional assess the trees to make sure none of them have any defects that would make them a higher than normal threat. In the event that a tree needs to be cleared away you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Just simply plant a brand-new native tree at a better location on your property 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 make 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 couple cultivated in a non harvest location within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
