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: 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 have any tree that has likely lost a good sized limb evaluated by a tree professional who can do a risk evaluation on the tree to check 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 warrant tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals carry out free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a home is a real “catch 22” state of affairs. On the one hand the shade that trees provide lowers cooling costs in the summer and provides a barrier against the winter wind. On the other hand the drop 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 beside houses can also enable unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to penetrate the attic. A client of ours had us remove some trees touching 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 trap and remove the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then had to re-insulate and rewire the attic. In situations where limbs are actually in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can cause damaged roof shingles or siding.
At times if a tree is very near to a house we may just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from the house but if a lot of limbs need to be removed it could cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be more suitable to take out the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or simply find 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 property. Since there is no way to stop this other than tree removal it is always advisable to do some research or refer to a landscape company when choosing on a location for trees around a building or driveway. Often people fail to understand the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they just plan to sell theÂ home before it reaches maturity leaving the new owner to require to pay a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their scale trees can overshadow small plants. Home-owners should certainly choose bushes or shrubs that are able to tolerate the competition for sun light and water or they will have to live 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 prosper in full sunlight. While it may be cheaper to take out the tree| if you really love the tree you may consult a landscape professional about changing to a different type of grass to save the tree.
Impact on home value: While the best tree in the proper location can easily improve a homes value the inappropriate tree can hurt property’s value. Oftentimes we can improve the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is merely getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your home from the road. Having said that in certain cases to improve 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 very same spot. Such is the case of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Often in these scenarios tree removal is the only option and if you are really feeling depressed about removing your best-loved tree you can always plant another one. Even if it will not mature in our life time our children or someone else’s children may well appreciate it.
Liability issues: We are not legal representatives but here is the way in which fallen trees are often interpreted according to the law. On the assumption that the tree was not obviously dead or diseased you are not deemed to be negligent or liable for the tree falling. You dispose of the section of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is responsible for tree removal and repairs to his premises. You are only liable for your property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is dead or unhealthy the next-door neighbor could sue and some insurance policies have a clause saying 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 stipulation about dead or diseased trees. On the other side if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the best way to safeguard yourself is to notify them in writing and let them know 99 % of competent tree services will give a free assessment. 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 homeowners who like to clean out gutters. We actually could start a gutter cleaning company with the quantity of telephone calls we get looking for a good inexpensive gutter cleaning service. Everyone wants a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the cheap ones I know aren’t insured and consequently I refuse to refer them. At the same time clogged gutters are more frustrating compared to not having gutters at all. Obstructed 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 install a gutter cap like http://www.leafguard.com or http://www.gutterguardian.com. Or else 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 windy night-times because of a specific tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their property. The fact is the sole way to insure a tree doesn’t fall on the home is to take out all large trees within close quarters. It could be downright costly to remove a bunch of trees near your Otisville NY house and sometimes this gets rid of the fear but leaves behind some regret. Typically fears can be soothed by having a tree service professional inspect the trees to ensure none of them have any defects that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree requires to be removed you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Just simply 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 room on your property but still would like to make a contribution you can provide 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 few planted in a non harvest location within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
