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: Once in a while storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is a good practice to have any tree that has lost a substantial limb surveyed by a tree professional that can do a risk evaluation on the tree to ensure that 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 require tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals make available free inspections.

Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a property is a real “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade which trees provide reduces cooling costs in the summer season and provides a buffer against the winter wind. Meanwhile the reduction in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance costs to increase (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees alongside houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to gain access to the attic. A customer of ours had us take down some trees touching his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a lot of money having someone else trap and remove the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and afterwards had to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In cases where limbs are actually in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can cause damaged shingles or siding.

Occasionally when a tree is too near to a home we may just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from your home but if several limbs need to be cleared away it can 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 figure out a more suitable location.

Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots may clog up your septic system| or they can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or property. Since there is no alternative way to stop this other than tree removal it is always prudent to carry out some research or consult with a landscape professional when deciding on a location for trees around a building or driveway. Often people fail to anticipate 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 new owner to require to hire a professional tree service to remove the tree.

Impact on surrounding landscape: As a result of their proportions trees can overshadow much smaller plants. Home owners should choose bushes or shrubs which will tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they need to deal with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well beneath a tree could be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some lawns only flourish in full direct sunlight. Although it may be less costly to remove the tree| if you really like the tree you might just consult a landscape expert about switching to a different kind of grass to keep the tree.

Impact on home value:  While the best tree in the proper location can boost a property’s value the inappropriate tree can impact property’s value. Often times we can improve the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your home from the road. Unfortunately sometimes to enhance the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.

Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes 2 things can not really inhabit the same site. This is the instance of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Normally in these situations tree removal is the only choice and if you are really feeling down about getting rid of your treasured 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 enjoy it.

Liability issues: We are not lawyers but here is how fallen trees are generally interpreted based upon the law. In the case that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not deemed to be negligent or at fault for the tree dropping down. You dispose of the part of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is responsible with respect to tree removal and repair works to his property. You are actually only responsible for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the next-door neighbor could sue and some 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 damage to the neighbor’s property and your insurance will not pay if they have a stipulation concerning dead or diseased trees. On the other side if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to safeguard 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 home you can use the written notification to position the expense of removal on your next-door neighbor.

Maintenance: I don’t know many homeowners that like to clean out gutters. We actually could start a gutter maintenance operation with the amount of calls we receive searching for a good inexpensive gutter cleaning service. Everyone wants a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the low-priced ones I know aren’t insured and as a result I refuse to refer them. Nevertheless clogged gutters are more frustrating than not having gutters at all. Congested 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 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 oftentimes remove trees because some people lay awake on blustery night-times due to a particular tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over their residence. Unfortunately the sole way to make certain a tree does not fall on the home is to remove all large trees within striking distance. It can be costly to remove a number of trees near your Sterling Forest NY residential property and often this eliminates the fear but leaves behind some regret. Often fears can be calmed by having a tree service pro inspect the trees to ensure none of these have any flaws that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree requires to be removed you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree executioner. Just simply plant a brand new native tree at a more desirable location on your property and you are doing your part to renew the growth cycle. If you don’t have room on your property but still would like to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They sow a tree for every single dollar donated and you can even specify the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a couple seeded in a non harvest site within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
