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 a good practice to take any tree that has recently lost a pretty big limb evaluated by a tree professional that may do a risk assessment on the tree to make sure more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service for free. Injured trees are most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always necessitate tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals provide free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a property is a real “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade which trees provide decreases cooling expenditures in the summer months and provides a barrier from the winter wind. However the reduction in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance expenses to grow (this is covered in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees next to houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to gain access to the attic. A homeowner of ours had us remove some trees touching his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a lot of money having someone trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and then needed to re-insulate and rewire the attic. In cases where limbs are actually touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can result in damaged shingles or home siding.
In some cases when a tree is very close to a property we can simply trim or cut back the tree limbs away from the house 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 remove the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or just pick and choose 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 foundation. 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 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 may plan to sell theÂ home before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to have to hire a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their proportions trees can overshadow smaller plants. House owners should certainly go with bushes or shrubs that are able to tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they have to live with a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that isn’t performing well under a tree can be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only prosper in full sunshine. While it may be less costly to take out the tree| if you really love the tree you may speak with a landscape expert about changing to a different sort of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the right tree in the right location can certainly boost a property’s value the wrong tree can impact a home’s value. Often we can enhance the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is just simply clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your home from the road. Unfortunately 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 2 things can not really inhabit the same site. This is the instance of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Often in these situations tree removal is the only choice and if you are feeling depressed about removing your beloved tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it will not mature in our life time our kids or someone else’s children may enjoy it.
Liability issues: are not legal representatives but here is the way in which fallen trees are usually translated based upon the law. On the assumption that the tree was not clearly dead or diseased you are not considered to be neglectful or at fault for the tree falling. You remove the section of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is responsible when it comes to tree removal and repairs to his property. You are only responsible for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is perished or unhealthy the next-door neighbor could file suit and several insurance policies have a provision stating that these companies are not responsible for dead or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you may be held accountable for damages 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 very best way to protect yourself is to advise them in writing and let them find out 99 % of professional 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 next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know many homeowners who like to clean out gutters. We actually could start a gutter maintenance company with the quantity of calls we receive seeking out a good inexpensive gutter cleaner. Everyone wants to have a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-priced ones I know aren’t insured and for this reason I refuse to recommend them. At the same time clogged gutters are more frustrating than not having gutters at all. Clogged downspouts cause the water to overflow onto 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 if you get fed up with that we are a tree removal specialist.
Peace of Mind: We often remove trees simply because some people lay awake on stormy nights because of a particular tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over the house. Unfortunately the only way to insure a tree will never fall on the home is to take out all big trees inside of striking distance. It may be downright costly to remove a load of trees near your Slate Hill NY residential property and often this alleviates the fear but leaves some remorse. Typically fears could be appeased by having a tree service company inspect the trees to make certain none of them have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. In the event that a tree requires to be removed you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree executioner. Just simply plant a new native tree at a 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 make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They plant a tree for every single dollar donated and you can even choose the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a few sown in a non harvest place within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
