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 Washingtonville 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 a good idea to take each and every tree that has definitely lost a substantial limb assessed by a tree professional that may do a risk evaluation on the tree to verify 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 warrant tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals carry out free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a house is a real “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade which trees provide lowers cooling costs in the summer season and provides a barrier from the winter wind. Meanwhile the reduction in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance bills to increase (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees close to houses can also help unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter into the attic. A client of ours had us remove some trees touching on his house due to the fact that a family of squirrels which had penetrated his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a lot of money having someone else trap and remove the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and then had to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In situations where limbs are effectively touching the house the constant swaying of the trees can result in damaged roof shingles or siding.
Sometimes whenever a tree is very close to a property we will be able to simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if a lot of limbs need to be cleared away it may cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be more suitable to remove the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or simply decide on a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots may 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 refer to a landscape company when deciding on a location for trees around a property or driveway. Often people fail to understand the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they may plan to sell theÂ building before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to have to find a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their overall size trees can overshadow small plants. House owners should decide on bushes or shrubs that can tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they need to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that isn’t 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 expensive to remove the tree| if you enjoy the tree you might consult a landscape company about switching to a different type of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the right tree in the right location can easily improve a homes resale value the wrong tree can impact property’s value. Often times we can improve the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is just simply getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your house from the road. However in some cases to improve 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. Such is the case of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Usually in these situations tree removal is the sole solution and if you are feeling depressed about clearing away your beloved tree you can always plant a different one. Even though it does not mature in our life time our kids or somebody else’s children may take joy in it.
Liability issues: We are not attorneys but this is the way in which fallen trees are usually interpreted according to the law. On the assumption that the tree was not obviously dead or diseased you are not considered to be negligent or liable for the tree falling. You remove the part of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is obligated for tree removal and repairs to his premises. You are actually only liable for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the neighbor could sue and some insurance policies have a stipulation stating that these companies are exempt for deceased or unhealthy 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 concerning dead or diseased trees. On the other hand if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the best way to safeguard yourself is to advise them in writing and let them find out 99 % of professional tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your house you can use the written notice to place the expense of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know of many homeowners who like to clean out gutters. We actually could start a gutter maintenance company with the number of phone calls we receive trying to find a good low-cost gutter cleaner. Everybody wants to have a cheap gutter cleaner but all the inexpensive kind I know aren’t insured and as a result I refuse to recommend them. However clogged gutters are more frustrating compared to not having gutters at all. Congested downspouts cause the water to overflow into 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. Or else clean them yearly soon after all the leaves have fallen and in the event that you get fed up with that we are a tree removal expert.
Peace of Mind: We often remove trees because some people lay awake on blustery night-times because of a particular tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their house. The fact is the only way to make sure a tree will never fall on the home is to take out all big trees within close quarters. It can be pricey to remove a bunch of trees near your Washingtonville NY property and often this eases the fear but leaves behind some remorse. Often fears could be calmed 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 has to be removed you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. 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 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 also specify the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a couple sown in a non harvest place within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
