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 idea to have any specific tree that has recently lost a good sized limb examined by a tree professional who can do a risk assessment on the tree to make sure more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide 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 offer free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a house is a total “catch 22” state of affairs. On the one hand the shade which trees render decreases cooling costs in the summertime and provides a buffer against the winter wind. Meanwhile the drop in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance expenditures to increase (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees next to houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to penetrate the attic. A client of ours had us take down some trees touching 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 lot of money having somebody trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then afterwards had to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In situations where limbs are effectively touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or home siding.
In some cases whenever a tree is very near to a property we may simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if several limbs need to be taken off it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be more effective to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or basically pick out a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots may clog up your septic system| or they could crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or home. Since there is no way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always advisable to conduct some research or refer to a landscape company 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 theÂ property before it reaches maturity leaving the new owner to have to find a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Thanks to their size trees can dominate much smaller plants. House owners should go with bushes or shrubs which will tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they have to deal with a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well beneath a tree can be assisted by stepping up water and fertilizer but some grasses only do well in full sunshine. Whilst it may be less costly to take out the tree| if you really like the tree you might seek advice from a landscape professional about changing to a different sort of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the right tree in the most appropriate location may boost a homes worth the inappropriate tree can impact a home’s value. In many cases we can enhance the curb appeal of a house 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 boost the curb appeal we have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically 2 things can not really occupy the very same spot. This is the case of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Generally in these circumstances tree removal is the only choice and if you are really feeling down about taking out your beloved tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it doesn’t mature in our life-time our children or someone else’s kids may well enjoy it.
Liability issues: We are certainly not lawyers but here is the way fallen trees are normally translated based upon the law. In the event that the tree was not clearly dead or diseased you are not considered to be neglectful or at fault for the tree dropping down. You dispose of the part 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 property. You are only responsible for your property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is dead or unhealthy the next-door neighbor could file suit and several insurance policies have a provision stating that they are exempt for dead 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 about dead or diseased trees. On the flip side if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the best way to safeguard yourself is to advise them in writing and let them know 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 place the cost of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know of many people who like to clean out gutters. We really could start a gutter maintenance business with the number of calls we get looking for a good cheap gutter cleaning service. Everyone wants a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-cost kind I know typically aren’t insured and for this reason I refuse to recommend them. Having said that clogged gutters are more frustrating than not possessing gutters at all. Obstructed downspouts cause the water to overflow onto the face(fascia) boards and water trapped 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 soon 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 because some people lay awake on windy nights because of a particular tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their property. Unfortunately the only way to insure a tree will never fall on the house is to take down all big trees within striking distance. It could be expensive to remove a great deal of trees near your Sterling Forest NY house and sometimes this gets rid of the fear but leaves some regret. Commonly fears could be appeased by having a tree service company inspect the trees to make sure none of these have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree has to be removed you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree executioner. Just plant a fresh native tree at a much better location on your property 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 grow a tree for every single dollar donated and you can also choose 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 choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
