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 Otisville 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: Usually storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is a good idea to have each and every tree that has lost a sizable limb assessed by a tree professional that can do a risk evaluation on the tree to make sure more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service totally free. Injured trees are most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always require tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals carry out free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a home is a real “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade that trees provide decreases cooling expenditures in the summer and provides a barrier against the winter wind. However the decrease in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance costs to grow (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees close to houses can also permit unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter into the attic. A customer of ours had us remove some trees touching on his house due to the fact that a family of squirrels which had gotten in his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a lot of money having somebody trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then afterwards needed to re-insulate and re-wire the loft. In situations where limbs are actually touching the house the constant swaying of the trees can lead to damaged roof shingles or home siding.
Occasionally if a tree is very close to a home we will be able to just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from your home but if a lot of limbs need to be cleared away it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be more effective to take out 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 may clog up your septic system| or they could crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or property. Since there is no way to stop this other than tree removal it is always advisable to carry out some research or consult a landscape professional when choosing on a location for trees around a property or driveway. Often people fail to understand 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 new owner to have to locate a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Thanks to their scale trees can dominate much smaller plants. Home-owners should certainly choose bushes or shrubs which can tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they need to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well beneath a tree could be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some grasses only prosper in full sunshine. While it may be less expensive to take out the tree| if you love the tree you could speak with a landscape professional about switching to a different type of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the right tree in the right location may increase a property’s resale value the inappropriate tree can hurt property’s value. Often we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is simply removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. Having said that in certain cases to boost the curb appeal we will have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes 2 things can not really inhabit the same area. Such is the scenario of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Normally in these circumstances tree removal is the sole solution and if you are feeling down about extracting your best-loved tree you can always plant another one. Even though it may not mature in our life-time our children or someone else’s children may well appreciate it.
Liability issues: are not legal professionals but this is the way 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 neglectful or liable for the tree dropping down. You clear away the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is obligated with respect to tree removal and repairs to his property. You are actually only responsible for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the neighbor could sue and several insurance policies have a clause pointing out that they are exempt for deceased or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you could be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s property and your insurance will not pay if they have a stipulation 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 notify 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 home you can use the written notice to place the fee of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know of many people that like to clean gutters. We literally could start a gutter maintenance business with the number of calls we receive looking for a good low-cost gutter cleaner. Almost everyone wants to have a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-priced kind I know aren’t insured and therefore I refuse to refer them. Having said that clogged gutters are much worse than not possessing gutters whatsoever. Clogged downspouts trigger the water to overflow into the face(fascia) boards and water trapped behind the gutters causes them 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 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 simply because some people lay awake on stormy nights as a result of a certain tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their residence. The fact is the sole way to make sure a tree will never fall on the house is to remove all large trees inside of striking distance. It can be expensive to remove a bunch of trees near your Otisville NY residence and sometimes this eliminates the fear but leaves behind some remorse. Typically fears could be appeased by having a tree service expert inspect the trees to make certain none of these have any flaws that would make them a more than normal threat. In the event that a tree has to be taken down you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. Just plant a new native tree at a more desirable location on your estate and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you do not have space on your property but still want to make a contribution you can make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They grow a tree for every dollar donated and you can even specify the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a couple sown in a non harvest site within New York or even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
