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: Occasionally storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is a good practice to take each and every tree that has lost a good sized limb looked over by a tree professional that may do a risk assessment on the tree to ascertain more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service free of cost. Injured trees are most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always require 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 real “catch 22” state of affairs. On the one hand the shade that trees render reduces cooling bills in the summer season and provides a barrier against the winter wind. On the other hand the drop in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance costs to increase (this is covered in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees alongside 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 thanks to a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a lot of money having someone trap and remove 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 effectively touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged roof shingles or home siding.

Often if a tree is too close to a home we may simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if a lot of limbs need to be taken off it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be far better to take out the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or simply look for 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 building. Since there is no way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always advised to conduct some research or consult with a landscape company when choosing on a location for trees around a house or driveway. Often people fail to anticipate the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they may plan to sell the property before it reaches maturity leaving the new owner to have to pay a professional tree service to take out the tree.

Impact on surrounding landscape: As a result of their size trees can dominate much smaller plants. House owners ought to go with bushes or shrubs that are able to tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they need to deal with a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that isn’t performing well under a tree can be assisted by stepping up water and fertilizer but some grasses only flourish in full sun light. Whilst it may be less expensive to take out the tree| if you really like the tree you might just consult a landscape professional about changing to a different sort of grass to spare the tree.

Impact on home value:  While the perfect tree in the right location can improve a homes market value the inappropriate tree can hurt property’s value. Often we can boost the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is just simply removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your house from the road. Unfortunately in some cases to boost the curb appeal we will have to resort to tree removal.

Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes two things can not really occupy the same area. This is the instance of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Usually in these instances tree removal is the sole alternative and if you are feeling depressed about extracting your beloved tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it will not mature in our lifespan our kids or someone else’s children may enjoy it.

Liability issues: Our people are certainly not legal professionals but this is insights on how fallen trees are usually interpreted according to the law. On the assumption that the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not deemed to be negligent or at fault for the tree falling. You dispose of the chunk of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is obligated when it comes to tree removal and repairs to his premises. You are actually only responsible for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is perished or unhealthy the neighbor could file suit and a few insurance policies have a provision pointing out that they are not responsible for perished or diseased trees. If this were to happen you might be held accountable for damages to the neighbor’s property and your insurance will not pay if they have a stipulation concerning dead or diseased trees. On the flip side if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the best way to protect yourself is to notify them in writing and let them know 99 % of professional tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your house you can use the written notice to place the expense of removal on your next-door neighbor.

Maintenance: I really don’t know of many homeowners who like to clean gutters. We literally could start a gutter cleaning operation with the amount of phone calls we receive seeking out a good low-cost gutter cleaning service. Everybody wants to have a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the low-priced ones I know typically aren’t insured and for this reason I refuse to refer them. At the same time clogged gutters are worse compared to not possessing gutters at all. Clogged up downspouts cause the water to overflow into the face(fascia) boards and water caught 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 right 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 times remove trees simply because some people lay awake on blustery nights because of a certain tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over their residence. The fact is the sole way to make certain a tree will never fall on the home is to take out all big trees within striking distance. It can possibly be downright costly to remove a bunch of trees near your Otisville NY house and often this gets rid of the fear but leaves some regret. Commonly fears could be relieved by having a tree service pro assess 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 don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree destroyer. Just plant a new native tree at a 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 provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They grow a tree for each dollar donated and you can even choose the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a few cultivated in a non harvest site within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
