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 take any tree that has likely lost a large limb looked over by a tree professional who should do a risk evaluation on the tree to verify more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service free of charge. Injured trees are most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always require tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals provide free inspections.

Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a house is a total “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade which trees offer lowers cooling expenditures in the summertime and provides a barrier from the winter wind. On the other hand the drop in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenses to grow (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees beside houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to get into the attic. A client of ours had us take down some trees touching on his house due to the fact that a family of squirrels which had penetrated his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a bunch of money having someone else trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then afterwards needed to re-insulate and re-wire the loft. In scenarios where limbs are actually in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or siding.

In some cases when a tree is very close to a home 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 more suitable to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or simply consider 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 property. Since there is no other to prevent this other than tree removal it is always advisable to do some research or consult a landscape company when deciding 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 just plan to sell the property before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to have to find a professional tree service to take out the tree.

Impact on surrounding landscape: As a result of their size trees can overshadow much smaller plants. House owners should certainly decide on bushes or shrubs which have the ability 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 really performing well beneath a tree can be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only do well in full sunshine. Although it may be less expensive to remove the tree| if you love the tree you might speak with a landscape professional about changing to a different kind of grass to keep the tree.

Impact on home value:  While the best tree in the right location can certainly increase a property’s worth the wrong tree can impact property’s value. Oftentimes we can boost the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically clearing away 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 sometimes two things can not inhabit the same location. Such is the case of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Usually in these cases tree removal is the sole alternative and if you are really feeling depressed about clearing away your beloved tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it may not mature in our lifespan our children or someone else’s kids may appreciate it.

Liability issues: We are certainly not legal representatives however this is the way in which falling trees are generally interpreted based upon the law. If the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be neglectful or at fault for the tree dropping down. You clear away the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is responsible when it comes to tree removal and repair works to his premises. You are actually only liable for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or unhealthy the next-door neighbor could sue and some insurance policies have a stipulation saying that they are exempt for lifeless or diseased 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 concerning dead or diseased trees. On the other side if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to safeguard yourself is to advise them in writing and let them find out 99 % of competent tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your residence you can use the written notice to position the expense of removal on your neighbor.

Maintenance: I really don’t know many property owners who like to clean out gutters. We literally could start a gutter maintenance company with the amount of phone calls we receive searching for a good cheap gutter cleaner. Everyone wants to have a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the inexpensive kind I know aren’t insured and therefore I refuse to recommend them. However clogged gutters are more frustrating than not possessing gutters at all. Blocked downspouts trigger the water to overflow into the face(fascia) boards and water caught 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. Otherwise 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 specialist.

Peace of Mind: We often remove trees because some people lay awake on blustery night-times due to a particular tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their residence. 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 great deal of trees near your Southfields NY property and often this alleviates the fear but leaves some remorse. Commonly fears could be relieved by having a tree service pro evaluate the trees to make sure none of them have any flaws that would make them a more than normal threat. In the event that a tree requires to be taken down you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. 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 do not have space on your property but still want to make a contribution you can provide 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. Fell a tree in your yard and have a few seeded in a non harvest site within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
