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 practice to have any specific tree that has definitely lost a good sized limb examined by a tree professional who can possibly do a risk evaluation on the tree to verify more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service free of cost. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always warrant tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals provide free inspections.

Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a property is a total “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade which trees render decreases cooling costs in the summer and provides a barrier from the winter wind. On the other hand the reduction in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance bills to increase (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees beside houses can also permit unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter the attic. A client of ours had us take down some trees touching on his house owing to a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a lot of money having somebody trap and remove 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 actually touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can result in damaged roof shingles or home siding.

At times if a tree is very close to a property we will be able to simply trim or cut back the tree limbs away from your home but if several limbs need to be removed it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be better to remove the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or just choose on a more suitable location.

Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will clog up your septic system| or they could crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or home. Since there is no alternative way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always prudent to conduct some research or consult with a landscape professional when deciding on a location for trees around a house or driveway. Often people fail to envisage 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 next owner to have to hire a professional tree service to remove the tree.

Impact on surrounding landscape: Because of their size trees can dominate small plants. Property owners should go for bushes or shrubs which can tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they need to live with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well beneath a tree could be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some grasses only prosper in full direct sunlight. While it may be less costly to take out the tree| if you cherish the tree you could consult a landscape company about changing to a different kind of grass to spare the tree.

Impact on home value:  While the perfect tree in the most appropriate location can improve a homes worth the inappropriate tree can hurt a home’s value. Often times 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. Having said that at times to improve the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.

Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes 2 things can not really occupy the same site. This is the instance of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Usually in these circumstances tree removal is the sole solution and if you are really feeling down about extracting your beloved tree you can always plant another one. Even if it may not mature in our life-time our children or someone else’s children can take joy in it.

Liability issues: Our people are not lawyer or attorneys but this is the way falling trees are often translated according to the law. On the assumption that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be negligent or to blame for the tree dropping down. You clear away the part of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is responsible with respect to tree removal and repairs to his premises. You are only responsible for your residential property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the neighbor could sue and a few insurance policies have a stipulation stating that these companies are not responsible for lifeless or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you can be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s residential property and your insurance will not pay if they have a stipulation concerning dead or diseased trees. On the flip side if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the best way to safeguard yourself is to advise them in writing and let them know 99 % of competent tree services will give a free evaluation. 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 many individuals who like to clean gutters. We literally could start a gutter cleaning operation with the number of phone calls we get trying to find a good affordable gutter cleaner. Everyone wants to have a cheap gutter cleaner but all the inexpensive ones I know typically aren’t insured and for this reason I refuse to refer them. Unfortunately clogged gutters are more frustrating compared to not possessing gutters at all. Clogged up downspouts trigger 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. Or else clean them yearly soon 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 nights as a result 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 home is to take down all large trees inside of close quarters. It may be costly to remove a great deal of trees near your Slate Hill NY house and often this eliminates the fear but leaves behind some remorse. Commonly fears can be appeased by having a tree service professional examine the trees to ensure none of them have any defects that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree needs to be removed you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Just simply plant a fresh native tree at a much 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 sow a tree for every dollar donated and you can also choose the location by US State or country. Chop down a tree in your yard and have a few cultivated in a non harvest location within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
