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: Occasionally 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 likely lost a sizable limb examined by a tree professional who can do a risk evaluation on the tree to check 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 necessitate tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals provide free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a residence is a total “catch 22” state of affairs. On the one hand the shade which trees provide lowers cooling expenditures in the summer time and provides a buffer against the winter wind. Meanwhile the decrease in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance bills to increase (this is covered in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees beside houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter the attic. A customer of ours had us remove some trees touching 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 shelled out a lot of money having someone trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and then had to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In cases where limbs are actually in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can cause damaged roof shingles or home siding.
Sometimes when a tree is very close to a house we may just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from the house but if lots 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 remove the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or just simply select 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 property. Since there is no way to stop this other than tree removal it is always advisable to conduct some research or hire a landscape company when deciding on a location for trees around a property or driveway. Often people fail to envisage 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 have to locate a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: As a result of their overall size trees can dominate small plants. Property owners should certainly choose bushes or shrubs that will tolerate the competition for sun light and water or they have to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well under a tree could be assisted by stepping up water and fertilizer but some lawns only flourish in full sunlight. While it may be more affordable to take out the tree| if you enjoy the tree you may seek advice from a landscape professional about changing to a different type of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the perfect tree in the most appropriate location can certainly improve a homes resale value the inappropriate tree can hurt property’s value. Often times we can enhance the curb appeal of a building 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. Having said that in certain cases to improve the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes 2 things can not occupy the same site. Such is the scenario of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Oftentimes in these circumstances tree removal is the sole alternative and if you are feeling down about taking out your beloved tree you can always plant another one. Even though it doesn’t mature in our lifespan our kids or somebody else’s kids may enjoy it.
Liability issues: We are certainly not legal representatives but here is the way falling trees are generally translated based upon the law. If the tree was not clearly dead or diseased you are not considered to be neglectful or liable for the tree dropping down. You dispose of the chunk of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is liable with regard to tree removal and repair works to his property. You are actually only responsible for your residential property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is perished or unhealthy the neighbor could file suit and some insurance policies have a stipulation saying that these companies are not responsible for dead or diseased trees. If this were to happen you could be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s residential property and your insurance will not pay if they have a clause about dead or diseased trees. On the flip side if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the very 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 residence you can use the written notification to place the cost of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know of many homeowners that like to clean out gutters. We literally could start a gutter maintenance business with the number of telephone calls we receive searching for a good low-cost gutter cleaning service. Almost everyone wants a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-priced ones I know typically aren’t insured and for that reason I refuse to recommend them. Having said that clogged gutters are much worse than not possessing gutters at all. Clogged downspouts cause 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. Otherwise 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 times remove trees because some people lay awake on blustery nights because of a specific tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their house. Unfortunately the only way to make certain a tree does not fall on the house is to take out all big trees within striking distance. It could be costly to remove a great deal of trees near your Slate Hill NY residence and sometimes this alleviates the fear but leaves behind some regret. Typically fears could be appeased by having a tree service pro assess the trees to make sure none of these have any defects that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree has to be cleared away you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree destroyer. Simply plant a brand-new native tree at a more desirable location on your property and you are doing your part to renew the growth cycle. If you don’t have room 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 dollar donated and you can even specify the location by US State or country. Chop down a tree in your yard and have a few sown in a non harvest location within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
