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 Salisbury Mills 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 each and every tree that has recently lost a sizable limb surveyed by a tree professional that can possibly do a risk assessment on the tree to make sure more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service free of charge. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always necessitate tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals make available 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 which trees provide decreases cooling expenditures in the summer time and provides a buffer against the winter wind. Meanwhile the reduction in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance costs to increase (this is covered in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees next to houses can also help 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 tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a bunch of money having somebody trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and afterwards had to re-insulate and re-wire the loft. In cases where limbs are actually touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can result in damaged shingles or home siding.
At times if a tree is very near to a home we may simply trim or cut back the tree limbs away from the house but if a lot of limbs need to be cleared away it might 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 pick out a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will clog up your septic system| or they might crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or home. Since there is no alternative way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always best to do some research or consult with a landscape company when choosing on a location for trees around a property or driveway. Often people fail to comprehend the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they just plan to sell theÂ property before it reaches maturity leaving the new owner to require to hire a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Thanks to their size trees can dominate much smaller plants. Homeowners should choose bushes or shrubs which can tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they will have to live with a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that isn’t performing well underneath a tree can be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some grasses only prosper in full sun light. While it may be less costly to remove the tree| if you cherish the tree you may speak with a landscape expert about switching to a different kind of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the most ideal tree in the proper location can easily increase a property’s worth the inappropriate tree can hurt property’s value. Often we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your property from the road. Having said that in some cases to enhance the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes two things can not occupy the very same site. Such is the scenario of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Generally in these scenarios tree removal is the sole choice and if you are feeling down about clearing away your favorite tree you can always plant another one. Even though it does not mature in our life-time our kids or someone else’s children may well enjoy it.
Liability issues: are not lawyers but this is insights on how falling trees are commonly interpreted based upon the law. In the case that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not deemed to be neglectful or to blame for the tree dropping down. You remove the part of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is responsible with regard to tree removal and repair works to his premises. You are actually only liable for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the neighbor could sue and some insurance policies have a provision stating that they are exempt for dead 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 stipulation about dead or diseased trees. On the other side 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 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 expense of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I do not know many people who like to clean out gutters. We literally could start a gutter maintenance operation with the amount of phone calls we receive seeking out a good low-cost gutter cleaning service. Almost everyone wants to have a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-cost ones I know aren’t insured and for that reason I refuse to refer them. Nevertheless clogged gutters are much worse compared to not possessing gutters at all. Blocked downspouts cause the water to overflow onto 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 shortly 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 oftentimes remove trees simply because some people lay awake on blustery night-times due to a particular tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over their house. Unfortunately the only way to make sure a tree does not fall on the home is to remove all big trees inside of striking distance. It can be pricey to remove a lot of trees near your Salisbury Mills NY home and sometimes this eliminates the fear but leaves some regret. Often 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 higher than normal threat. If a tree has to be cleared away you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree destroyer. Simply plant a fresh native tree at a much better location on your property and you are doing your part to renew the growth cycle. If you do not have space on your property but still wish to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They sow a tree for each dollar donated and you can even specify the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a couple planted in a non harvest location within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
