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 Vails Gate 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: Occasionally storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is still a good idea to take each and every tree that has likely lost a large limb examined 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 totally free. Injured trees are most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always necessitate tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals offer free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a home is a real “catch 22” state of affairs. On the one hand the shade that trees provide decreases cooling bills in the summer time and provides a barrier from the winter wind. However the decrease in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance costs to increase (this is covered 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 customer of ours had us remove some trees touching his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a lot of money having someone trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and afterwards had to re-insulate and re-wire the loft. In scenarios where limbs are actually in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can cause damaged roof shingles or siding.
Occasionally whenever a tree is too near to a property we will be able to just trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if many limbs need to be taken off it might cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be more effective to remove the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or basically 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 property. Since there is no way to stop this other than tree removal it is always advised to conduct some research or refer to a landscape company when deciding on a location for trees around a house or driveway. Often people fail to understand 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 new owner to require to pay a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their proportions trees can overshadow smaller plants. House owners ought to choose bushes or shrubs that can tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they need to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well under a tree can be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some grasses only flourish in full direct sunlight. While it may be less costly to take out the tree| if you love the tree you might speak with a landscape professional about switching to a different type of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the perfect tree in the appropriate location may boost a homes resale value the inappropriate tree can damage a home’s value. In many cases we can enhance the curb appeal of a house 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 at times to boost the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes 2 things can not occupy the same area. This is the instance of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Often in these scenarios tree removal is the only option and if you are feeling down about getting rid of your beloved tree you can always plant a different one. Albeit it will not mature in our lifetime our children or someone else’s kids may appreciate it.
Liability issues: We are not legal representatives however here is the way fallen trees are typically translated based upon the law. In the case that the tree was not clearly dead or diseased you are not considered to be negligent or to blame for the tree falling. You dispose of the chunk of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is responsible for tree removal and repair works to his property. You are actually only liable for your residential property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the next-door neighbor could file suit and several insurance policies have a stipulation pointing out that they are exempt for dead or diseased trees. If this were to happen you might be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s residential property and your insurance will not pay if they have a clause about dead or diseased trees. On the other side if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to protect yourself is to advise them in writing and let them find out 99 % of professional tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your house you can use the written notice to place the expense of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know of many homeowners who like to clean gutters. We literally could start a gutter maintenance business with the quantity of telephone calls we receive looking for a good affordable gutter cleaner. Almost everyone wants a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the low-cost ones I know aren’t insured and consequently I refuse to recommend them. Unfortunately clogged gutters are more frustrating than not having gutters at all. Clogged downspouts trigger the water to overflow onto the face(fascia) boards and water caught 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. Otherwise clean them yearly shortly 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 simply because some people lay awake on blustery night-times because of a certain tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their residence. Unfortunately the sole way to make sure a tree doesn’t fall on the home is to take down all big trees within close quarters. It could be pricey to remove a great deal of trees near your Vails Gate NY home and often this gets rid of the fear but leaves some regret. Typically fears can be appeased by having a tree service professional evaluate the trees to ensure none of these have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. In the event that a tree requires to be cleared away you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Just plant a new native tree at a much better location on your property and you are doing your part to renew 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 plant a tree for every dollar donated and you can even choose the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a couple planted in a non harvest site within New York or even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
