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 Pine Bush 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 still a good idea to take any tree that has recently lost a significant limb examined by a tree professional who should 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 more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always necessitate tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals perform free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a residence is a total “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade which trees render decreases cooling costs in the summer and provides a buffer from the winter wind. On the other hand the drop in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenditures to increase (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees close to houses can also permit unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter the attic. A homeowner of ours had us take down 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 bunch of money having someone else trap and take out 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 shingles or siding.
In some cases when a tree is very near to a house we will be able to just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from your home but if several limbs need to be cleared away it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be more suitable to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or just simply think about a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots can sometimes clog up your septic system| or they might crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or foundation. Since there is no way to stop this other than tree removal it is always prudent to conduct some research or refer to a landscape professional when choosing on a location for trees around a house or driveway. Often people fail to understand the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they might plan to sell theÂ building before it reaches maturity leaving the new owner to have to pay a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: A result of their overall size trees can overshadow small plants. Property owners should select bushes or shrubs which are able to tolerate the competition for sun light and water or they have to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that isn’t performing well underneath a tree could be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only do well in full sunshine. Whilst it may be less costly to take out the tree| if you cherish the tree you might just seek advice from a landscape professional about switching to a different type of grass to save the tree.
Impact on home value: While the best tree in the proper location may boost a homes worth the inappropriate tree can hurt a home’s value. Oftentimes we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is simply removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your house from the road. Unfortunately sometimes to boost the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically 2 things can not really inhabit the same spot. This is the instance of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Often in these cases tree removal is the sole choice and if you are feeling down about getting rid of your favorite tree you can always plant another one. Even though it does not mature in our life-time our children or somebody else’s children may appreciate it.
Liability issues: Our people are not lawyer or attorneys but here is how fallen trees are commonly translated based upon the law. If the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be negligent or liable for the tree dropping down. You dispose of the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is liable for tree removal and repair works to his premises. You are only liable for your property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is dead or unhealthy the neighbor could file suit and a few insurance policies have a clause stating 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 clause 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 know 99 % of competent tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your home you can use the written notification to place the cost of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know many homeowners who like to clean out gutters. We actually could start a gutter cleaning company with the amount of calls we receive searching for a good inexpensive gutter cleaner. Everyone wants a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the low-cost ones I know typically aren’t insured and that is why I refuse to recommend them. Having said that clogged gutters are worse compared to not having gutters at all. Clogged up 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 put in a gutter cap like http://www.leafguard.com or http://www.gutterguardian.com. Alternatively 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 specialist.
Peace of Mind: We often times remove trees simply because some people lay awake on blustery nights because of a specific tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over their house. Unfortunately the sole way to make certain 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 number of trees near your Pine Bush NY house and often this eases the fear but leaves some remorse. Often fears can be appeased by having a tree service professional examine the trees to make sure none of these have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree has to be removed you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Just simply plant a brand new native tree at a better location on your estate and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you don’t have space on your property but still wish 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 also specify the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a couple sown in a non harvest place within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
