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 Newburgh 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 idea to take any tree that has definitely lost a good sized limb evaluated by a tree professional that should do a risk assessment on the tree to make sure more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service totally free. Injured trees are more 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 property is a total “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade that trees render lowers cooling bills in the summertime and provides a barrier against the winter wind. On the other hand the decrease in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance bills to grow (this is covered in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees next to houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to get into the attic. A client 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 trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a lot of money having someone else trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then afterwards had to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In cases where limbs are actually in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged roof shingles or siding.
Occasionally whenever a tree is too close to a property we can simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if many limbs need to be removed it may cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be better to take out the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or just think about a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots may clog up your septic system| or they might crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or foundation. Since there is no other to stop this other than tree removal it is always best to carry out some research or consult a landscape professional when choosing on a location for trees around a house or driveway. Often people fail to envisage the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they may plan to sell theÂ building before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to require to pay a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Thanks to their size trees can overshadow smaller plants. Property owners ought to decide on 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 best potential. Grass that is not performing well under 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 cheaper to remove the tree| if you enjoy the tree you could seek advice from a landscape company about changing to a different kind of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the right tree in the most appropriate location may increase a homes value the wrong tree can damage property’s value. Oftentimes we can improve the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is just simply removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your property from the road. Having said that in certain cases to boost the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically 2 things can not really inhabit the same spot. Such is the scenario of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Normally in these scenarios tree removal is the sole choice and if you are really feeling down about clearing away your favorite tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it may not mature in our lifetime our kids or someone else’s kids may well appreciate it.
Liability issues: are not lawyers but here is insights on how fallen trees are typically interpreted according to the law. If the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be negligent or liable for the tree falling. You clear away the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is liable for tree removal and repairs to his premises. You are only responsible for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the next-door neighbor could sue and a few insurance policies have a stipulation saying that these companies are not responsible for deceased or diseased trees. If this were to happen you can 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 next-door neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to safeguard yourself is to notify them in writing and let them find out 99 % of professional tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your house 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 gutters. We literally could start a gutter cleaning company with the amount of phone calls we receive trying to find a good affordable gutter cleaner. Everybody would like a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the cheap ones I know aren’t insured and as a result I refuse to refer them. However clogged gutters are worse compared to not having gutters at all. Obstructed downspouts cause the water to overflow onto 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. Alternatively clean them yearly soon after all the leaves have fallen and in the event that you get fed up with that we are a tree removal expert.
Peace of Mind: We often remove trees simply because some people lay awake on blustery nights due to a specific tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over their residence. Unfortunately the sole way to make sure a tree doesn’t fall on the house is to remove all large trees inside of striking distance. It can possibly be expensive to remove a number of trees near your Newburgh NY residence and often this eases the fear but leaves some remorse. Often fears can be appeased by having a tree service company evaluate the trees to make sure none of these have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree requires 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 estate and you are doing your part to renew the growth cycle. If you do not have space on your property but still would like to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They grow a tree for every dollar donated and you can also specify the location by US State or country. Chop down a tree in your yard and have a few sown in a non harvest place within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
