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 take any specific tree that has recently lost a significant limb checked by a tree professional that should do a risk evaluation on the tree to make sure 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 warrant tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals perform free inspections.

Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a house is a total “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade that trees offer lowers cooling bills in the summer months and provides a buffer against the winter wind. On the other hand the drop in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenses to increase (this is covered in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees close to houses can also enable unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter into the attic. A client of ours had us take down some trees touching his house owing to a family of squirrels which had penetrated his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a lot of money having someone trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then had to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In cases where limbs are effectively in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can cause damaged shingles or siding.

In some cases when a tree is too near to a home we will be able to simply trim or cut back the tree limbs away from the house but if a lot of limbs need to be cleared away it may cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be more suitable to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or basically choose on 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 home. Since there is no alternative way to stop this other than tree removal it is always advised to conduct some research or refer to a landscape company when choosing on a location for trees around a house or driveway. Often people fail to comprehend the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they just plan to sell the house before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to require to locate a professional tree service to remove the tree.

Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their overall size trees can dominate smaller plants. Property owners ought to choose bushes or shrubs which have the ability to tolerate the competition for sun light and water or they have to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that isn’t performing well under a tree could be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some lawns only do well in full direct sunlight. While it may be more affordable to remove the tree| if you love the tree you might just seek advice from a landscape professional about changing to a different sort of grass to save the tree.

Impact on home value:  While the perfect tree in the most appropriate location may improve a homes resale value the wrong tree can impact a home’s value. Oftentimes we can improve the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is merely getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. Having said that in certain cases to boost the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.

Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees at times 2 things can not inhabit the very same location. Such is the scenario of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Oftentimes in these instances tree removal is the only alternative and if you are really feeling down about getting rid of your treasured tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it may not mature in our lifetime our kids or somebody else’s children may well take joy in it.

Liability issues: Our people are certainly not legal professionals however this is the way in which fallen trees are typically interpreted based upon the law. If the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be negligent or to blame for the tree falling. You clear away the section of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is responsible for tree removal and repair works to his property. You are only liable for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the next-door neighbor could file suit and some insurance policies have a provision pointing out that these companies are not responsible for perished or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you might be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s residential property and your insurance will not pay if they have a clause concerning dead or diseased trees. On the flip side if you have a next-door 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 evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your home you can use the written notice to place the cost of removal on your neighbor.

Maintenance: I don’t know of many individuals who like to clean gutters. We literally could start a gutter maintenance company with the amount of calls we receive trying to find a good affordable gutter cleaning service. Everyone wants a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the cheap ones I know aren’t insured and for that reason I refuse to refer them. Having said that clogged gutters are more frustrating than not having gutters whatsoever. Clogged up downspouts cause 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 if you get fed up with that we are a tree removal specialist.

Peace of Mind: We often times remove trees simply because some people lay awake on blustery night-times due to a certain tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over their house. The fact is the only way to guarantee a tree doesn’t fall on the home is to remove all large trees within close quarters. It may be downright costly to remove a great deal of trees near your Southfields NY home and often this eliminates the fear but leaves behind some remorse. Often fears could be relieved by having a tree service pro assess the trees to ensure none of them have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree has to be cleared away you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Just plant a brand-new native tree at a better location on your estate and you are doing your part to renew the growth cycle. If you don’t have room 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 dollar donated and you can also choose the location by US State or country. Chop down a tree in your yard and have a couple cultivated in a non harvest location within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
