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 Thompson Ridge 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 take any tree that has recently lost a sizable limb surveyed by a tree professional that can possibly do a risk assessment on the tree to check 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 necessitate tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals carry out free inspections.

Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a property is a real “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade that trees render reduces cooling bills in the summer season and provides a barrier from the winter wind. On the other hand the drop in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenditures to grow (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees near to houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to get into the attic. A client of ours had us take down some trees touching his house owing to a family of squirrels which had gotten in his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a bunch of money having someone trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and afterwards had to re-insulate and rewire the attic. In scenarios where limbs are actually touching the house the constant swaying of the trees can cause damaged roof shingles or siding.

Often when a tree is very near to a home we will be able to simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if lots of limbs need to be cleared away it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be better to remove the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or just pick out a more suitable location.

Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots can sometimes clog up your septic system| or they might crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or home. Since there is no alternative way to stop this other than tree removal it is always best to conduct some research or hire a landscape company when choosing on a location for trees around a building or driveway. Often people fail to understand the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they just plan to sell the house before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to require to pay a professional tree service to remove the tree.

Impact on surrounding landscape: Because of their proportions trees can overshadow much smaller plants. Home-owners ought to choose bushes or shrubs that can tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they have to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s maximum 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 direct sunlight. Even though it may be less expensive to remove the tree| if you love the tree you may consult a landscape professional about switching to a different kind of grass to spare the tree.

Impact on home value:  While the best tree in the right location can easily increase a property’s value the wrong tree can damage a home’s value. In many cases we can enhance the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is just simply removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. However sometimes to boost the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.

Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes two things can not occupy the same site. This is the scenario of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Normally in these scenarios tree removal is the sole solution and if you are feeling down about extracting your treasured tree you can always plant another one. Albeit it may not mature in our lifetime our children or someone else’s kids may enjoy it.

Liability issues: We are certainly not legal professionals but this is the way falling trees are commonly interpreted according to the law. In the event that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be negligent or to blame for the tree falling. You clear away the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is obligated with respect to tree removal and repair works to his premises. You are only responsible for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the next-door neighbor could sue and several insurance policies have a stipulation pointing out that these companies are exempt for deceased or diseased trees. If this were to happen you might be held accountable for damages to the neighbor’s property and your insurance will not pay if they have a stipulation about 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 home you can use the written notice to place the expense of removal on your neighbor.

Maintenance: I really don’t know of many homeowners who like to clean out gutters. We literally could start a gutter cleaning company with the quantity of calls we receive trying to find a good cheap gutter cleaning service. Every one wants a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the low-cost kind I know typically aren’t insured and as a result I refuse to refer them. Having said that clogged gutters are more frustrating than not possessing gutters at all. Congested 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 install a gutter cap like http://www.leafguard.com or http://www.gutterguardian.com. Alternatively clean them yearly shortly after all the leaves have fallen and if you get fed up with that we are a tree removal expert.

Peace of Mind: We oftentimes remove trees simply because some people lay awake on windy nights because of a certain tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over the house. The fact is the only way to insure a tree does not fall on the home is to clear away all large trees within close quarters. It could be expensive to remove a load of trees near your Thompson Ridge NY property and often this gets rid of the fear but leaves behind some remorse. Typically fears can be appeased by having a tree service pro evaluate the trees to make sure none of these have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree requires to be removed you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree destroyer. Just simply plant a new native tree at a much better location on your estate and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you do not have room 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 single dollar donated and you can even choose the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a few seeded in a non harvest site within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
