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 Mountainville 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 idea to take any specific tree that has definitely lost a good sized limb inspected by a tree professional that can possibly 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 most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always necessitate tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals carry out free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a property is a real “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade that trees offer lowers cooling bills in the summer season and provides a barrier against the winter wind. Meanwhile the reduction in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance costs to grow (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees near to houses can also help unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to gain access to the attic. A homeowner of ours had us take down some trees touching on his house owing 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 someone else trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and afterwards had to re-insulate and rewire the attic. In scenarios where limbs are actually in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can result in damaged roof shingles or siding.
Often when a tree is too close to a house we can simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if many limbs need to be taken off it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be more effective to remove the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or just go with a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will clog up your septic system| or they can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or property. Since there is no other to stop this other than tree removal it is always advised to conduct some research or hire a landscape company when deciding on a location for trees around a property 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 house before it reaches maturity leaving the subsequent owner to require to find a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their overall size trees can overshadow small plants. Home-owners should pick bushes or shrubs that can tolerate the competition for sun light and water or they will have to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that is not performing well under a tree could be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only do well in full sunlight. Even though it may be less costly to remove the tree| if you really love the tree you might consult a landscape professional about changing to a different kind of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the most ideal tree in the correct location can easily improve a homes value the inappropriate tree can hurt property’s value. Often times we can improve the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your home from the road. Unfortunately sometimes to improve the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes two things can not occupy the same site. Such is the scenario of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Normally in these instances tree removal is the only solution and if you are feeling depressed about removing your treasured tree you can always plant another one. Even if it does not mature in our life-time our children or someone else’s kids may appreciate it.
Liability issues: Our people are certainly not legal representatives however this is how fallen trees are often translated based upon the law. In the event that the tree was not clearly dead or diseased you are not deemed to be neglectful or liable for the tree dropping down. You clear away the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is liable with regard to tree removal and repair works 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 next-door neighbor could sue and some insurance policies have a stipulation stating that they are exempt for perished or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you may 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 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 home you can use the written notice to place the cost of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know of many people who like to clean gutters. We really could start a gutter maintenance company with the quantity of telephone calls we get searching for a good affordable gutter cleaning service. Everyone wants a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the low-priced ones I know aren’t insured and that is why I refuse to refer them. Nevertheless clogged gutters are more frustrating compared to not having gutters at all. Obstructed downspouts trigger the water to overflow into the face(fascia) boards and water caught 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. Alternatively clean them yearly shortly 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 simply because some people lay awake on windy night-times due to a particular tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their residence. The fact is the sole way to guarantee a tree doesn’t fall on the house is to take out all large trees within close quarters. It can possibly be expensive to remove a lot of trees near your Mountainville NY residence and often this gets rid of the fear but leaves behind some regret. Typically fears could be appeased by having a tree service professional evaluate the trees to make sure none of them have any defects that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree needs to be taken down you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree destroyer. Simply plant a brand new native tree at a much better location on your property and you are doing your part to restore 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 sow a tree for every dollar donated and you can even choose the location by US State or country. Chop down a tree in your yard and have a couple sown in a non harvest location within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
