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 practice to have any tree that has likely lost a substantial limb looked at by a tree professional that can do a risk assessment on the tree to ensure that 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 warrant 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” situation. On the one hand the shade which trees offer decreases cooling costs in the summer and provides a barrier from the winter wind. However the decrease in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance expenditures to increase (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees next to houses can also enable unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to penetrate the attic. A customer of ours had us take down some trees touching on his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a bunch of money having someone trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then had to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In situations where limbs are actually touching the house the constant swaying of the trees can result in damaged shingles or home siding.
In some cases if a tree is too close to a home we can just trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if lots of limbs need to be taken off it may cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be far better to remove the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or basically look for a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots can sometimes clog up your septic system| or they could crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or building. Since there is no way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always best to do some research or hire 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 may plan to sell theÂ building before it reaches maturity leaving the subsequent owner to have to find a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Because of their size trees can dominate much smaller plants. Property owners should certainly go for bushes or shrubs which have the ability to tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they have to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well beneath a tree could be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only prosper in full sunlight. Whilst it may be more affordable to take out the tree| if you really like the tree you could speak with a landscape professional about switching to a different type of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the best tree in the most appropriate location can improve a property’s resale value the wrong tree can damage property’s value. Often times we can improve the curb appeal of a property 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 certain cases to boost the curb appeal we will have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees often two things can not occupy the very same spot. Such is the instance of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Generally in these instances tree removal is the sole option and if you are feeling depressed about getting rid of your best-loved tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it will not mature in our life time our kids or someone else’s kids may well appreciate it.
Liability issues: are certainly not legal professionals but here is the way fallen trees are normally translated according to the law. In the case that the tree was not clearly dead or diseased you are not deemed to be negligent or to blame for the tree falling. You dispose of 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 premises. You are actually only responsible for your property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is dead or unhealthy the neighbor could file suit and several insurance policies have a provision pointing out that they are exempt for lifeless or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you can 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 protect 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 house you can use the written notification to position the expense of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I do not know many homeowners that like to clean gutters. We really could start a gutter maintenance operation with the number of calls we get searching for a good low-cost gutter cleaner. Everyone wants a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the low-cost kind I know typically aren’t insured and therefore I refuse to recommend them. However clogged gutters are more frustrating than not having gutters whatsoever. Congested downspouts cause the water to overflow onto the face(fascia) boards and water trapped behind the gutters causes them 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 right 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 times remove trees simply because some people lay awake on windy nights due to a specific tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over their property. Unfortunately the sole way to guarantee a tree doesn’t fall on the house is to take down all large trees inside of close quarters. It may be pricey to remove a bunch of trees near your Southfields NY property and often this eliminates the fear but leaves some regret. Often fears could be relieved by having a tree service pro inspect the trees to make certain none of them have any defects that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree needs to be cleared away you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Just 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 single dollar donated and you can also specify the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a few seeded in a non harvest area within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
