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 New Milford 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 idea to take every tree that has lost a significant limb surveyed by a tree professional who should do a risk assessment on the tree to check more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service free of charge. Injured trees are most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always warrant tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals perform free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a house is a total “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade that trees offer decreases cooling costs in the hot months and provides a buffer against the winter wind. On the other hand the reduction in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance bills to grow (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees beside houses can also help unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter the attic. A homeowner of ours had us take down some trees touching on his house due to the fact that a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a lot of money having someone else trap and remove the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and afterwards had to re-insulate and rewire the attic. In situations where limbs are actually touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or siding.
Sometimes when a tree is too close to a property we may simply trim or cut back the tree limbs away from the house 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 far better to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or basically go for a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots may clog up your septic system| or they can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or property. Since there is no alternative way to stop this other than tree removal it is always advised to do some research or hire 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 home before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to have to hire a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Thanks to their overall size trees can overshadow small plants. Homeowners ought to choose bushes or shrubs that will tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they 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 flourish in full sunshine. While it may be cheaper to remove the tree| if you love the tree you might consult a landscape professional about switching to a different sort of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the most ideal tree in the correct location can improve a property’s worth the inappropriate tree can hurt a home’s value. Often times we can enhance the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is simply clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. Unfortunately in certain cases to boost the curb appeal we have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes two things can not really inhabit the same site. This is the case of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Normally in these cases tree removal is the only solution and if you are feeling depressed about getting rid of your best-loved tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it doesn’t mature in our life time our children or somebody else’s kids may enjoy it.
Liability issues: Our people are not lawyer or attorneys but here is the way falling trees are usually translated according to the law. On the assumption that the tree was not obviously dead or diseased you are not considered to be neglectful or at fault for the tree falling. You clear away the part of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is liable when it comes to tree removal and repair works to his property. You are only responsible for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the next-door neighbor could sue and several insurance policies have a provision pointing out that they are not responsible for perished or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you might be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s residential property and your insurance will not pay if they have a clause concerning dead or diseased trees. On the other hand if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the best way to safeguard yourself is to advise them in writing and let them find out 99 % of competent tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your house you can use the written notice to place the fee of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know many people who like to clean out gutters. We really could start a gutter maintenance company with the quantity of telephone calls we receive looking for a good low-cost gutter cleaner. Everybody would like a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-priced kind I know aren’t insured and that is why I refuse to refer them. At the same time clogged gutters are much worse than not possessing gutters at all. Clogged 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 put in 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 expert.
Peace of Mind: We often times remove trees simply because some people lay awake on stormy nights as a result of a certain tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their house. The fact is the only way to make sure a tree doesn’t fall on the house is to clear away all large trees within striking distance. It can be expensive to remove a number of trees near your New Milford NY home and sometimes this eliminates the fear but leaves behind some regret. Typically fears could be relieved by having a tree service professional examine the trees to make certain none of these have any flaws that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree needs to be taken down you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree executioner. Just simply plant a brand new native tree at a much 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 make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They plant a tree for every single dollar donated and you can also specify the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a couple seeded in a non harvest place within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
