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 Unionville 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 idea to have every tree that has recently lost a good sized limb surveyed by a tree professional who can do a risk assessment on the tree to verify 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 warrant tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals make available free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a residence is a total “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade that trees offer reduces cooling costs in the hot months and provides a barrier against the winter wind. However the decrease in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenditures to increase (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees near to houses can also help unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to gain access to the attic. A homeowner 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 spent a lot of money having someone trap and remove the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then afterwards had to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In situations where limbs are actually touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can result in damaged shingles or home siding.
Often whenever a tree is very near to a house we may just trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if a lot of limbs need to be cleared away it could 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 simply go with 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 foundation. Since there is no other to stop this other than tree removal it is always advised to conduct some research or consult a landscape professional when choosing 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 theÂ building before it reaches maturity leaving the subsequent 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 certainly select bushes or shrubs which are able to tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they will have to deal with a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that isn’t performing well under a tree can be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only prosper in full sun light. Although it may be less expensive to remove the tree| if you enjoy the tree you may speak with a landscape expert about switching to a different type of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the right tree in the proper location can certainly improve a property’s worth the wrong tree can hurt property’s value. In many cases we can enhance the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is simply getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your house from the road. Having said that in some cases to improve the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically 2 things can not really occupy the same location. Such is the case of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Generally in these cases tree removal is the only alternative and if you are really feeling depressed about taking out your best-loved tree you can always plant another one. Even if it does not mature in our life-time our children or someone else’s kids may appreciate it.
Liability issues: We are not attorneys but here is the way falling trees are generally interpreted according to the law. In the case that the tree was not clearly 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 obligated when it comes to tree removal and repairs to his premises. 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 clause saying that these companies are exempt for dead or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you can be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s residential property and your insurance will not pay if they have a stipulation concerning dead or diseased trees. On the other hand if you have a 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 assessment. Then if the tree falls on your home you can use the written notification to place the expense of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know many property owners that like to clean out gutters. We really could start a gutter cleaning company with the quantity of calls we get trying to find a good low-cost gutter cleaner. Almost everyone would like a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the low-priced ones I know aren’t insured and for this reason I refuse to recommend them. Nevertheless clogged gutters are worse than not possessing gutters at all. Blocked downspouts cause the water to overflow onto the face(fascia) boards and water caught 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. Otherwise clean them yearly right 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 times remove trees because some people lay awake on stormy nights due to a particular tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their house. Unfortunately the sole way to make sure a tree doesn’t fall on the house is to take down all big trees within close quarters. It can be expensive to remove a lot of trees near your Unionville NY residence and often this alleviates the fear but leaves some remorse. Often fears can be relieved by having a tree service professional inspect 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 cleared away you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree destroyer. Simply plant a brand 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 make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They sow a tree for every dollar donated and you can even choose the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a few planted in a non harvest place within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
