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 Slate Hill 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 still a good idea to have any specific tree that has likely lost a significant limb examined by a tree professional that can possibly do a risk assessment on the tree to ensure that more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service free of charge. Injured trees are more 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 total “catch 22” state of affairs. On the one hand the shade which trees offer lowers cooling costs in the summertime and provides a barrier from the winter wind. However the drop in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenses to grow (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees close to houses can also permit unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to get into the attic. A homeowner of ours had us take down some trees touching on his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had penetrated his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a lot of money having someone trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then needed to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In cases where limbs are effectively touching the house the constant swaying of the trees can cause damaged shingles or home siding.
At times when a tree is too near to a home we may just trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if a lot of limbs need to be cleared away it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be better to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or basically select 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 other to stop this other than tree removal it is always best to do some research or consult with a landscape professional when deciding on a location for trees around a property or driveway. Often people fail to anticipate the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they may plan to sell theÂ property before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to require to hire a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: A result of their scale trees can dominate small plants. Homeowners should choose bushes or shrubs that will tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they will have to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that isn’t performing well underneath a tree could be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some grasses only flourish in full sunshine. Although it may be more affordable to take out the tree| if you love the tree you may seek advice from a landscape professional about switching to a different sort of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the best tree in the most appropriate location can boost a homes resale value the wrong tree can hurt a home’s value. Often we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your home from the road. Unfortunately in certain cases to enhance the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees often two things can not really occupy the same area. This is the scenario of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Normally in these cases tree removal is the only solution and if you are feeling down about clearing away your favorite tree you can always plant another one. Albeit it doesn’t mature in our lifetime our children or somebody else’s children can appreciate it.
Liability issues: We are not legal representatives but this is the way in which falling trees are normally translated based upon the law. In the event that the tree was not clearly dead or diseased you are not considered to be neglectful or to blame for the tree dropping down. You remove the chunk of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is liable with respect to tree removal and repairs to his premises. You are actually only responsible for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the next-door neighbor could file suit and some insurance policies have a stipulation stating that these companies are exempt for dead or diseased trees. If this were to happen you may be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s property and your insurance will not pay if they have a stipulation about 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 advise them in writing and let them know 99 % of professional tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your home you can use the written notice to position the fee of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I do not know of many people that like to clean out gutters. We literally could start a gutter cleaning business with the quantity of telephone calls we receive trying to find a good cheap gutter cleaner. Everyone wants to have a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the low-cost ones I know aren’t insured and as a result I refuse to recommend them. Having said that 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 these 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 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 stormy night-times due to a certain tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their property. Unfortunately the only way to insure a tree does not fall on the home is to clear away all large trees within striking distance. It can be expensive to remove a lot of trees near your Slate Hill NY house and sometimes this alleviates the fear but leaves some regret. Often fears can be relieved by having a tree service pro inspect the trees to ensure none of them 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 executioner. Just plant a fresh native tree at a much better location on your estate and you are doing your part to renew the growth cycle. If you don’t have space on your property but still would like to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They grow a tree for every single dollar donated and you can also choose the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a few planted in a non harvest site within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
