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: Sometimes storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is a good idea to take any specific tree that has lost a large limb looked at by a tree professional that can possibly do a risk assessment on the tree to ensure that 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 require tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals make available free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a home is a real “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade that trees render reduces cooling costs in the summer months and provides a buffer against the winter wind. However the drop in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance expenses to grow (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 penetrate the attic. A homeowner of ours had us take down some trees touching on his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had penetrated his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a lot of money having somebody trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then needed to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In scenarios where limbs are actually in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged roof shingles or siding.
Sometimes when a tree is very close to a property we can simply trim or cut back the tree limbs away from your home but if several limbs need to be removed it may cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be far better to take out the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or just settle on a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will clog up your septic system| or they could crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or foundation. Since there is no other to prevent this other than tree removal it is always best to conduct some research or refer to a landscape company when deciding 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 theÂ building 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: Due to their overall size trees can dominate smaller plants. Property owners should choose bushes or shrubs that can tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they need to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that isn’t performing well under a tree could be assisted by stepping up water and fertilizer but some lawns only prosper in full sun light. While it may be more affordable to remove the tree| if you love the tree you could speak with a landscape company about switching to a different type of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the perfect tree in the correct location may boost a homes market value the wrong tree can hurt property’s value. Oftentimes we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is merely getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your home from the road. Unfortunately at times to boost the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees at times 2 things can not really occupy the very same site. This is the instance of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Oftentimes in these instances tree removal is the only alternative and if you are feeling down about clearing away your best-loved tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it does not mature in our lifespan our kids or someone else’s children may well enjoy it.
Liability issues: We are certainly not lawyers however this is insights on how fallen trees are ordinarily interpreted based upon the law. Assuming that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be negligent or liable for the tree dropping down. You clear away the part of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is liable with respect to tree removal and repairs to his premises. You are actually only responsible for your property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is dead or unhealthy the next-door neighbor could sue and a few insurance policies have a provision stating that they are exempt for perished or diseased trees. If this were to happen you could be held accountable for damages 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 neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to protect yourself is to notify them in writing and let them find out 99 % of competent tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your house you can use the written notice to position the expense of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know many homeowners that like to clean out gutters. We literally could start a gutter maintenance business with the number of telephone calls we receive seeking out a good inexpensive gutter cleaner. Everyone wants a cheap gutter cleaner but all the cheap kind I know aren’t insured and therefore I refuse to recommend them. Having said that clogged gutters are much worse than not possessing gutters at all. Clogged downspouts trigger the water to overflow into the face(fascia) boards and water caught behind the gutters causes these 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 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 remove trees simply because some people lay awake on windy night-times due to a certain tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their house. Unfortunately the only way to make sure a tree will never fall on the home is to remove all large trees within striking distance. It could be downright costly to remove a lot of trees near your Washingtonville NY home and often this eases the fear but leaves behind some remorse. Typically fears can be soothed by having a tree service company inspect the trees to make sure none of these have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree has to be removed you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree destroyer. Simply plant a new native tree at a more desirable location on your estate and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you don’t have space on your property but still would like to make a contribution you can make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They grow a tree for every single dollar donated and you can also choose the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a couple sown in a non harvest site within New York or even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
