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 Sterling Forest 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 a good idea to have each and every tree that has recently lost a significant limb checked by a tree professional who 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 cost. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always require tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals perform free inspections.

Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a home is a real “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade that trees provide reduces cooling bills in the summer months and provides a barrier against the winter wind. However the decrease in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenses to increase (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees close to houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter the attic. A customer 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 shelled out a lot of money having someone trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then afterwards had to re-insulate and re-wire the loft. In cases where limbs are actually in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can lead to damaged roof shingles or siding.

Often when a tree is too close to a property we may simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if a lot of limbs need to be removed it may cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be better to remove the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or just simply settle on 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 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 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 just plan to sell the property before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to require to locate a professional tree service to take out the tree.

Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their scale trees can dominate small plants. Property owners should go for bushes or shrubs which are able to tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they need to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well under a tree could be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some grasses only do well in full sunlight. Whilst it may be less costly to remove the tree| if you really love the tree you could consult a landscape expert about switching to a different sort of grass to keep the tree.

Impact on home value:  While the best tree in the proper location may improve a property’s market value the inappropriate tree can hurt property’s value. Often times we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is merely getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your property from the road. Unfortunately in certain cases to enhance the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.

Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes two things can not really occupy the very same spot. Such is the case of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Oftentimes in these scenarios tree removal is the only choice and if you are feeling depressed about removing your treasured tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it will not mature in our lifespan our kids or someone else’s kids may appreciate it.

Liability issues: are not attorneys however this is how falling trees are normally translated based upon the law. On the assumption that the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be negligent or liable for the tree dropping down. You remove the section of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is obligated when it comes to tree removal and repair works to his premises. You are actually only liable for your property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the neighbor could file suit and several insurance policies have a stipulation saying that these companies are not responsible for deceased or diseased trees. If this were to happen you can 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 other side if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the best way to safeguard yourself is to notify them in writing and let them know 99 % of professional 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 don’t know of many individuals who like to clean gutters. We really could start a gutter cleaning business with the amount of telephone calls we receive seeking out a good affordable gutter cleaning service. Every one wants to have a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the low-cost kind I know typically aren’t insured and consequently I refuse to refer them. Having said that clogged gutters are much worse compared to not having gutters at all. Clogged up downspouts cause 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 if you get fed up with that we are a tree removal specialist.

Peace of Mind: We oftentimes remove trees because some people lay awake on stormy night-times because of a certain tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over the house. The fact is the only way to guarantee a tree will never fall on the home is to remove all big trees inside of close quarters. It can be pricey to remove a lot of trees near your Sterling Forest NY home and sometimes this eliminates the fear but leaves some remorse. Commonly fears could be soothed by having a tree service expert evaluate the trees to make sure none of these have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree has to be removed you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. Simply plant a fresh native tree at a 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 sow a tree for every dollar donated and you can even specify the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a couple planted in a non harvest area within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
