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 a good idea to take each and every tree that has recently lost a good sized limb looked at by a tree professional who can possibly do a risk assessment on the tree to verify more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service for free. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always warrant tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals offer free inspections.

Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a property is a real “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade that trees provide reduces cooling expenditures in the summer months and provides a barrier against the winter wind. However the reduction in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance costs to increase (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees alongside houses can also permit unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to penetrate the attic. A customer of ours had us remove some trees touching his house owing to a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and tramped down 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| and then needed to re-insulate and re-wire the loft. In situations where limbs are effectively in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can result in damaged roof shingles or siding.

In some cases whenever a tree is too near to a home we will be able to 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 more suitable to take out the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or just decide on a more suitable location.

Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will 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 prudent to conduct some research or hire a landscape professional when choosing on a location for trees around a home 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 house before it reaches maturity leaving the new owner to require to find a professional tree service to take out the tree.

Impact on surrounding landscape: A result of their overall size trees can dominate smaller plants. Homeowners should select bushes or shrubs which have the ability to tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they need to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that is not performing well underneath a tree can be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some grasses only do well in full sun light. While it may be less costly to take out the tree| if you enjoy the tree you might just speak with a landscape company 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 easily increase a homes market value the wrong tree can hurt a home’s value. Oftentimes we can enhance the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your property from the road. However sometimes to enhance the curb appeal we have to turn to tree removal.

Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees at times 2 things can not really occupy the very same site. Such is the instance of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Oftentimes in these cases tree removal is the sole choice and if you are really feeling depressed about extracting your favorite tree you can always plant another one. Albeit it doesn’t mature in our life-time our children or somebody else’s kids can enjoy it.

Liability issues: We are not legal professionals however this is the way in which falling trees are often interpreted according to the law. In the case that the tree was not clearly dead or diseased you are not deemed to be neglectful or to blame for the tree falling. You remove the part of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is obligated with respect to tree removal and repairs to his property. You are only liable for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the next-door neighbor could file suit and several insurance policies have a clause stating that these companies are not responsible for perished or diseased trees. If this were to happen you can be held accountable for damages to the neighbor’s property and your insurance will not pay if they have a clause concerning dead or diseased trees. On the other 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 evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your residence you can use the written notice to place the fee of removal on your neighbor.

Maintenance: I really don’t know of many people that like to clean gutters. We actually could start a gutter maintenance operation 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 low-cost ones I know typically aren’t insured and for that reason I refuse to refer them. At the same time clogged gutters are worse compared to not possessing gutters whatsoever. 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 put in a gutter cap like http://www.leafguard.com or http://www.gutterguardian.com. Alternatively 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 often remove trees because some people lay awake on windy night-times due to a particular tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their property. Unfortunately the sole way to guarantee a tree will never fall on the home is to take out all big trees inside of close quarters. It can possibly be downright costly to remove a lot of trees near your Thompson Ridge NY home and sometimes this eliminates the fear but leaves some regret. Commonly fears can be relieved by having a tree service company assess the trees to ensure none of these have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree needs to be removed you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Simply plant a brand new native tree at a far 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 wish 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 cultivated in a non harvest location within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
