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 still a good practice to have any specific tree that has likely lost a sizable limb examined by a tree professional that may do a risk assessment on the tree to verify more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service free of charge. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always warrant tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals perform 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 render reduces cooling bills in the hot months and provides a buffer against the winter wind. Meanwhile the drop in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenditures to increase (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees next to houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter into the attic. A customer of ours had us remove some trees touching his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had gotten in his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a bunch of money having someone else trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then afterwards had to re-insulate and rewire the attic. In situations where limbs are actually in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can result in damaged roof shingles or home siding.
Occasionally whenever a tree is too close to a home we will be able to just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from your home but if many limbs need to be taken off it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be better to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or just make a decision on a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will clog up your septic system| or they could crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or home. Since there is no alternative way to stop this other than tree removal it is always advisable to do some research or refer to a landscape company when deciding on a location for trees around a home or driveway. Often people fail to understand the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they just plan to sell theÂ property before it reaches maturity leaving the subsequent owner to have to pay a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their scale trees can dominate smaller plants. Homeowners ought to choose bushes or shrubs which have the ability to tolerate the competition for sun light and water or they will have to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well beneath a tree can be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some lawns only do well in full direct sunlight. While it may be less costly to remove the tree| if you really like the tree you could speak with a landscape expert about changing to a different kind of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the perfect tree in the appropriate location can certainly boost a property’s value the inappropriate tree can hurt property’s value. In many cases we can enhance the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your home from the road. Having said that in some cases to enhance the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes 2 things can not inhabit the very same location. This is the case of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Normally in these circumstances tree removal is the sole alternative and if you are feeling depressed about removing your treasured tree you can always plant another one. Even though it may not mature in our life time our kids or someone else’s kids may enjoy it.
Liability issues: We are not lawyer or attorneys but here is the way falling trees are basically interpreted based upon the law. Assuming that the tree was not obviously dead or diseased you are not considered to be neglectful or liable for the tree falling. You remove the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is obligated with regard to tree removal and repairs to his property. You are actually only liable for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is perished or unhealthy the neighbor could file suit and a few 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 clause 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 protect yourself is to advise them in writing and let them know 99 % of competent tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your house you can use the written notification to position the fee of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know many property owners that like to clean gutters. We actually could start a gutter cleaning business with the quantity of telephone calls we get trying to find a good low-cost gutter cleaning service. Almost everyone would like a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the inexpensive ones I know aren’t insured and for this reason I refuse to recommend them. Unfortunately clogged gutters are worse than not having gutters whatsoever. Obstructed downspouts trigger the water to overflow onto the face(fascia) boards and water trapped behind the gutters causes these 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 soon after all the leaves have fallen and if 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 as a result of a particular tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over their property. The fact is the sole way to make certain a tree will never fall on the house is to remove all big trees within striking distance. It can be pricey to remove a great deal of trees near your Sterling Forest NY house and often this alleviates the fear but leaves behind some regret. Often fears could be calmed by having a tree service company inspect 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 needs to be taken down you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Simply plant a brand new native tree at a better location on your property and you are doing your part to renew the growth cycle. If you don’t have space on your property but still wish to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They grow a tree for every single dollar donated and you can also choose the location by US State or country. Chop down a tree in your yard and have a few sown in a non harvest location within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
