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: Once in a while storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is a good practice to have any tree that has likely lost a large limb examined by a tree professional who can do a risk assessment on the tree to verify more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide 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” scenario. On the one hand the shade which trees render decreases cooling expenditures in the summertime and provides a buffer against the winter wind. However the decrease in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance bills to increase (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees alongside 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 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 spent a lot of money having someone trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and then needed to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In cases where limbs are actually touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or siding.
In some cases if a tree is too near to a property we will be able to simply trim or cut back the tree limbs away from your home but if a lot of limbs need to be cleared away it could cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be more effective to remove the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or just simply select a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots can sometimes clog up your septic system| or they might crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or property. 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 deciding 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 may plan to sell theÂ property before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to require to locate a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Because of their overall size trees can dominate smaller plants. Home-owners should certainly go for bushes or shrubs that will tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they need to deal with a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that isn’t performing well underneath a tree could be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some grasses only flourish in full direct sunlight. Even though it may be more affordable to take out the tree| if you really love the tree you might just seek advice from a landscape company about changing to a different sort of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the most ideal tree in the right location can certainly increase a homes market value the inappropriate tree can damage a home’s value. In many cases we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is merely clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. Having said that in some cases to enhance the curb appeal we will have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically two things can not inhabit the same site. Such is the case of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Oftentimes in these cases tree removal is the sole option and if you are really feeling depressed about taking out your favorite tree you can always plant a different one. Even though it doesn’t mature in our life-time our children or somebody else’s children can take joy in it.
Liability issues: are not legal professionals but here is how fallen trees are ordinarily interpreted according to the law. In the case that the tree was not obviously dead or diseased you are not deemed to be negligent or liable for the tree falling. You remove the part of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is liable when it comes to tree removal and repairs to his property. You are actually only responsible for your property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the neighbor could file suit and some insurance policies have a provision saying that these companies are not responsible for deceased or diseased trees. If this were to happen you might be held accountable for damages to the neighbor’s residential property and your insurance will not pay if they have a stipulation about dead or diseased trees. On the other side if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the best way to protect yourself is to notify them in writing and let them know 99 % of professional tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your house you can use the written notice to position the fee of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know of many property owners who like to clean out gutters. We literally could start a gutter cleaning operation with the number of calls we receive seeking out a good cheap gutter cleaning service. Everyone would like a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-cost ones I know aren’t insured and for that reason I refuse to recommend them. However clogged gutters are worse than not possessing gutters at all. Obstructed 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 put in a gutter cap like http://www.leafguard.com or http://www.gutterguardian.com. Alternatively clean them yearly right after all the leaves have fallen and if you get fed up with that we are a tree removal expert.
Peace of Mind: We often times remove trees because some people lay awake on windy night-times due to a specific tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over the house. Unfortunately the only way to make certain a tree will never fall on the home is to take down all big trees inside of striking distance. It may be pricey to remove a number of trees near your Montgomery NY property and sometimes this eases the fear but leaves behind some regret. Commonly fears can be calmed by having a tree service pro inspect the trees to make certain none of these have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. In the event that a tree needs to be taken down you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree executioner. Simply plant a brand-new native tree at a far better location on your estate and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you don’t have room on your property but still want to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They sow a tree for every single dollar donated and you can even choose the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a few sown in a non harvest location within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
