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 Southfields 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 still a good practice to have each and every tree that has lost a pretty big limb surveyed by a tree professional that may do a risk assessment on the tree to ascertain more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service free of cost. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always necessitate tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals carry out free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a residence is a total “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade that trees provide lowers cooling expenditures in the hot months and provides a buffer against the winter wind. Meanwhile the reduction in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenses to increase (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees close to houses can also help unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to penetrate the attic. A homeowner of ours had us take down some trees touching on his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had gotten in his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a bunch of money having someone else trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then needed to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In scenarios where limbs are actually in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can cause damaged roof shingles or siding.
Often whenever a tree is too close to a house we can simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if lots of limbs need to be removed it might 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 simply 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 building. Since there is no way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always prudent to carry out some research or hire a landscape professional when choosing on a location for trees around a building or driveway. Often people fail to anticipate the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they might plan to sell theÂ building before it reaches maturity leaving the new owner to have to pay a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: As a result of their scale trees can dominate smaller plants. House owners should certainly go with bushes or shrubs that will tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they have to deal with a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that is not performing well beneath a tree could be assisted by stepping up water and fertilizer but some lawns only prosper in full sunshine. Whilst it may be cheaper to remove the tree| if you enjoy the tree you might just consult a landscape professional about switching to a different kind of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the right tree in the proper location can certainly improve a homes worth the wrong tree can damage property’s value. Often times we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is just simply getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your home from the road. However in some cases to boost the curb appeal we have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees often two things can not really inhabit the very same location. Such is the instance of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Usually in these scenarios tree removal is the sole option and if you are really feeling down about extracting your treasured tree you can always plant a different one. Even though it may not mature in our lifetime our children or somebody else’s children may well appreciate it.
Liability issues: We are not legal representatives however here is how falling trees are often translated according to the law. In the event that the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not deemed to be negligent or liable for the tree falling. 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 actually only responsible for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the neighbor could file suit and a few insurance policies have a stipulation pointing out that they are not responsible for deceased or diseased trees. If this were to happen you might be held accountable for damages to the neighbor’s residential property and your insurance will not pay if they have a stipulation concerning dead or diseased trees. On the other hand if you have a 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 home you can use the written notice to place the expense of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know many individuals that like to clean out gutters. We really could start a gutter maintenance operation with the number of calls we receive looking for a good inexpensive gutter cleaning service. Everybody would like a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the inexpensive ones I know aren’t insured and that is why I refuse to refer them. Unfortunately clogged gutters are more frustrating than not possessing gutters at all. Congested downspouts cause the water to overflow onto the face(fascia) boards and water caught behind the gutters causes these 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 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 times remove trees because some people lay awake on windy night-times due to a certain tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their property. Unfortunately the sole way to make sure a tree doesn’t fall on the home is to remove all large trees within striking distance. It could be expensive to remove a number of trees near your Southfields NY residence and sometimes this eases the fear but leaves behind some remorse. Typically fears can be calmed by having a tree service professional examine the trees to make sure none of these have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. In the event that a tree needs to be taken down you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree destroyer. Simply 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 do not have room on your property but still would like to make a contribution you can make 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. Cut a tree in your yard and have a couple seeded in a non harvest site within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
