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: Sometimes 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 lost a substantial limb examined by a tree professional that can do a risk evaluation on the tree to verify more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service free of cost. Injured trees are most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always necessitate tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals offer 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 reduces cooling costs in the summer time and provides a barrier against the winter wind. Meanwhile the reduction in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance costs to increase (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees alongside houses can also enable unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to gain access to the attic. A customer of ours had us take down some trees touching 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 someone else trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and then needed to re-insulate and rewire the attic. In situations where limbs are effectively touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can result in damaged roof shingles or home siding.

At times when a tree is too close to a house we may just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from your home but if several limbs need to be cleared away it could cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be far better to remove the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or just simply go with a more suitable location.

Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots can sometimes clog up your septic system| or they can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or foundation. Since there is no alternative way to stop this other than tree removal it is always best to do some research or refer to a landscape company when deciding on a location for trees around a building or driveway. Often people fail to anticipate the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they might plan to sell the building before it reaches maturity leaving the new owner to require to locate a professional tree service to remove the tree.

Impact on surrounding landscape: Because of their overall size trees can overshadow smaller plants. Home-owners should certainly pick bushes or shrubs that are able to tolerate the competition for sun light and water or they will have to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that isn’t performing well beneath a tree could be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only do well in full sunshine. Although it may be more affordable to remove the tree| if you cherish the tree you may speak with a landscape expert about switching to a different type of grass to save the tree.

Impact on home value:  While the best tree in the correct location can easily increase a homes resale value the inappropriate tree can hurt a home’s value. In many cases we can boost the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your home from the road. Unfortunately sometimes to enhance 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 inhabit the same area. Such is the instance of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Oftentimes in these situations tree removal is the sole choice and if you are feeling depressed about taking out your treasured tree you can always plant a different one. Albeit it may not mature in our life time our children or someone else’s children may enjoy it.

Liability issues: We are not lawyer or attorneys but this is insights on how fallen trees are generally interpreted based upon the law. In the case that the tree was not clearly dead or diseased you are not considered to be neglectful or to blame for the tree falling. You clear away the section of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is responsible for tree removal and repairs to his property. You are actually only liable for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is perished or unhealthy the neighbor could file suit and several insurance policies have a stipulation stating that these companies are exempt for lifeless or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you may be held accountable for damages to the neighbor’s residential property and your insurance will not pay if they have a clause about dead or diseased trees. On the other hand if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to safeguard yourself is to advise them in writing and let them find out 99 % of professional tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your residence you can use the written notice to position the expense of removal on your next-door neighbor.

Maintenance: I do not know of many people that like to clean gutters. We really could start a gutter maintenance business with the number of phone calls we get searching for a good cheap gutter cleaner. Almost everyone wants to have a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-cost ones I know aren’t insured and consequently I refuse to recommend them. At the same time clogged gutters are worse than not possessing gutters at all. Congested 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 put in a gutter cap like http://www.leafguard.com or http://www.gutterguardian.com. Alternatively clean them yearly 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 remove trees because some people lay awake on blustery night-times as a result of a certain tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over the house. Unfortunately the sole way to make certain a tree doesn’t fall on the home is to remove all large trees within close quarters. It may be pricey to remove a lot of trees near your Otisville NY residential property and often this alleviates the fear but leaves some remorse. Commonly fears can be appeased by having a tree service expert examine the trees to ensure none of them have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree requires to be taken down you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Just simply plant a brand-new native tree at a far better location on your estate and you are doing your part to renew 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 sow a tree for every single dollar donated and you can also choose the location by US State or country. Chop down a tree in your yard and have a couple seeded in a non harvest place within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
