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: Once in a while 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 recently lost a good sized limb checked out by a tree professional who may do a risk assessment on the tree to make sure more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service free of charge. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always necessitate tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals provide free inspections.

Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a home is a total “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade which trees provide decreases cooling bills in the summer season and provides a barrier against the winter wind. On the other hand the decrease in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance costs to increase (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees next to houses can also make it possible for unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to get into the attic. A client of ours had us remove some trees touching on his house owing to a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a bunch of money having somebody trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and then had to re-insulate and rewire the attic. In situations where limbs are effectively in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can result in damaged shingles or siding.

Occasionally whenever a tree is very close to a house we may simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if lots of limbs need to be cleared away it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be more effective to remove the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or basically choose 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 foundation. Since there is no alternative way to stop this other than tree removal it is always best to carry out some research or consult with a landscape professional when choosing on a location for trees around a house or driveway. Often people fail to envisage the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they might plan to sell the property before it reaches maturity leaving the subsequent owner to require to pay a professional tree service to remove the tree.

Impact on surrounding landscape: A result of their scale trees can dominate smaller plants. Home-owners should choose bushes or shrubs which are able to tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they will have to live with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that is not performing well beneath a tree can be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only prosper in full direct sunlight. Even though it may be less expensive to take out the tree| if you love the tree you could consult a landscape company about switching to a different type of grass to save the tree.

Impact on home value:  While the perfect tree in the right location can certainly improve a homes value the wrong tree can damage a home’s value. Oftentimes we can enhance 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 in certain cases to enhance the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.

Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically two things can not occupy the very same spot. This is the instance of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Oftentimes in these cases tree removal is the sole option 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 life-time our children or someone else’s children can enjoy it.

Liability issues: are not attorneys but this is insights on how falling trees are ordinarily interpreted based upon the law. If the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not deemed to be negligent or liable for the tree dropping down. You remove the section of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is liable for tree removal and repair works to his premises. You are actually 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 a few insurance policies have a stipulation saying that they are exempt for lifeless 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 about dead or diseased trees. On the flip side if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to safeguard yourself is to notify them in writing and let them know 99 % of professional tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your home you can use the written notification to position the cost of removal on your neighbor.

Maintenance: I really don’t know many homeowners who like to clean out gutters. We actually could start a gutter maintenance business with the amount of calls we receive trying to find a good affordable gutter cleaning service. Everybody would like a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-priced kind I know typically aren’t insured and therefore I refuse to recommend them. Nevertheless clogged gutters are worse compared to not possessing gutters at all. Congested downspouts trigger the water to overflow into 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. Or else 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 oftentimes remove trees simply because some people lay awake on windy night-times because of a specific tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their residence. Unfortunately the sole way to guarantee a tree will never fall on the house is to remove all large trees within close quarters. It could be expensive to remove a great deal of trees near your Southfields NY property and sometimes this alleviates the fear but leaves some remorse. Commonly fears can be relieved by having a tree service company assess the trees to make certain none of them have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. In the event that a tree needs to be cleared away you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Just simply plant a brand-new 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 room on your property but still want to make a contribution you can make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They grow a tree for each dollar donated and you can also 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 and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
