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: Usually storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is still a good practice to take any specific tree that has definitely lost a large limb examined by a tree professional who should 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 cost. Injured trees are most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always necessitate tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals perform free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a residence is a real “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade which trees render decreases cooling bills in the summer 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 grow (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees beside houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to get into the attic. A homeowner of ours had us remove some trees touching his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had penetrated his attic and tramped down 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 had to re-insulate and rewire the attic. In scenarios where limbs are actually touching the house the constant swaying of the trees can lead to damaged roof shingles or siding.
Sometimes if a tree is too near to a house we may just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from your home but if a lot of limbs need to be taken off it may cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be better to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or just simply pick and choose 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 home. Since there is no alternative way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always best to conduct some research or hire a landscape professional when choosing on a location for trees around a house or driveway. Often people fail to anticipate the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they just plan to sell theÂ home before it reaches maturity leaving the subsequent owner to require to hire a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Because of their size trees can overshadow smaller plants. Home owners should pick bushes or shrubs which will tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they have to live with a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that isn’t performing well underneath a tree can be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only flourish in full sunshine. Even though it may be less expensive to remove the tree| if you enjoy the tree you might seek advice from a landscape professional about changing to a different type of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the best tree in the proper location can improve a homes resale value the wrong tree can hurt property’s value. Often 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 house from the road. Having said that at times to improve the curb appeal we will have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees often 2 things can not occupy the very same spot. This is the scenario of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Usually in these circumstances tree removal is the only alternative and if you are feeling down about getting rid of your best-loved tree you can always plant a different one. Even though it does not mature in our life-time our children or somebody else’s children may enjoy it.
Liability issues: Our people are certainly not legal representatives however this is how falling trees are generally interpreted according to the law. Assuming that the tree was not obviously dead or diseased you are not deemed to be negligent or at fault for the tree falling. You dispose of the section of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is responsible when it comes to tree removal and repairs to his property. You are actually only responsible for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the neighbor could sue and several insurance policies have a provision stating that they are not responsible for perished 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 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 notice to position the fee of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know of many property owners that like to clean gutters. We actually could start a gutter maintenance operation with the amount of telephone calls we get seeking out a good low-cost gutter cleaning service. Every one wants a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-cost ones I know aren’t insured and therefore I refuse to refer them. At the same time clogged gutters are much worse than not having 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. Alternatively 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 often remove trees simply because some people lay awake on windy nights because of a particular tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their residence. Unfortunately the only way to guarantee a tree will never fall on the home is to clear away all large trees within close quarters. It can possibly be costly to remove a great deal of trees near your Sterling Forest NY residential property and often this eases the fear but leaves behind some regret. Commonly fears could be relieved by having a tree service expert examine the trees to ensure none of these have any flaws that would make them a more than normal threat. In the event that a tree requires to be taken down you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree executioner. Just simply plant a brand-new native tree at a much better location on your property and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you don’t have room on your property but still want to make a contribution you can make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They sow a tree for every single dollar donated and you can also specify the location by US State or country. Chop down a tree in your yard and have a couple seeded in a non harvest place within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
