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: Occasionally storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is still a good idea to have any tree that has definitely lost a large limb checked by a tree professional that can do a risk evaluation on the tree to check 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 most true tree service professionals make available free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a house is a total “catch 22” state of affairs. On the one hand the shade which trees render lowers cooling expenditures in the hot months and provides a barrier against the winter wind. On the other hand the decrease in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing maintenance costs to grow (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees near to houses can also make it possible for unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to gain access to the attic. A homeowner of ours had us take down some trees touching his house because a family of squirrels which had gotten in his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a bunch of money having someone trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then afterwards had to re-insulate and re-wire the loft. In scenarios where limbs are effectively touching the house the constant swaying of the trees can cause damaged shingles or home siding.
In some cases whenever a tree is too close to a home we will be able to simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if several limbs need to be cleared away it could cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be far better to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or just simply look for 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 a landscape professional when choosing on a location for trees around a home or driveway. Often people fail to envisage 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 hire a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: As a result of their scale trees can overshadow much smaller plants. Home owners should certainly go for bushes or shrubs that can tolerate the competition for sun light and water or they have to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that isn’t performing well beneath a tree could be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only flourish in full sunlight. Whilst it may be less costly to take out the tree| if you enjoy the tree you may speak with a landscape expert about switching to a different sort of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the most ideal tree in the most appropriate location can certainly improve a property’s value the inappropriate tree can impact a home’s value. In many cases we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is just simply removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your house from the road. However sometimes to improve the curb appeal we will have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically two things can not really occupy the very same location. This is the instance of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Oftentimes in these scenarios tree removal is the only choice and if you are really feeling depressed about clearing away your favorite tree you can always plant a different one. Even though it will not mature in our lifespan our kids or someone else’s children can take joy in it.
Liability issues: Our people are not legal representatives but here is the way fallen trees are normally translated based upon the law. On the assumption that the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not deemed to be negligent or at fault for the tree falling. You dispose of the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is liable for tree removal and repairs to his property. You are actually only responsible for your residential property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is dead or unhealthy the next-door neighbor could file suit and some insurance policies have a clause pointing out that these companies are exempt for perished or unhealthy 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 side if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the best way to safeguard yourself is to notify 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 house you can use the written notification to place the fee of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know of many individuals that like to clean out gutters. We really could start a gutter maintenance company with the number of calls we receive looking for a good affordable gutter cleaner. Everybody wants a cheap gutter cleaner but all the cheap ones I know typically aren’t insured and consequently I refuse to refer them. At the same time clogged gutters are more frustrating than not having gutters whatsoever. Clogged up downspouts trigger the water to overflow into the face(fascia) boards and water trapped behind the gutters causes these 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 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 windy nights due to a certain tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over their property. Unfortunately the only way to insure a tree will never fall on the home is to remove all large trees inside of close quarters. It could be pricey to remove a bunch of trees near your Southfields NY property and often this eases the fear but leaves some remorse. Typically fears could be appeased by having a tree service pro inspect the trees to ensure none of these have any defects that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree needs to be removed you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Just simply plant a new 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 would like to make a contribution you can make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They plant a tree for each 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 place within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
