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 West Point 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 any tree that has lost a substantial limb examined by a tree professional that can possibly do a risk evaluation on the tree to make sure 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 require 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 real “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade which trees render decreases cooling expenditures in the summer time and provides a buffer against the winter wind. Meanwhile the decrease in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance expenditures to increase (this is covered in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees alongside houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter into the attic. A client of ours had us take down some trees touching his house because 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 somebody trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and then needed to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In scenarios where limbs are effectively touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can result in damaged shingles or siding.
In some cases whenever a tree is very close to a house we can just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from the house but if many limbs need to be taken off it could cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be more effective to take out the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or just figure out a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots can sometimes clog up your septic system| or they can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or foundation. Since there is no other to prevent this other than tree removal it is always prudent to conduct some research or hire a landscape company when deciding on a location for trees around a property or driveway. Often people fail to comprehend 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 require to find a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Because of their size trees can dominate much smaller plants. Property owners ought to choose bushes or shrubs that can tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they need to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that is not performing well underneath a tree could be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only do well in full direct sunlight. Even though it may be more affordable to take out the tree| if you enjoy the tree you might seek advice from a landscape professional about switching to a different type of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the most ideal tree in the most appropriate location can easily improve a property’s resale value the inappropriate tree can hurt a home’s value. Often we can boost the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is simply removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. However sometimes to boost the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees often two things can not really inhabit the same location. Such is the case of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Usually in these instances tree removal is the only choice and if you are really feeling depressed about clearing away your best-loved tree you can always plant another one. Even though it may not mature in our lifespan our children or someone else’s kids may enjoy it.
Liability issues: Our people are not lawyers however here is the way in which falling trees are normally translated based upon the law. On the assumption that the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be negligent or at fault for the tree dropping down. You clear away the part of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is responsible with respect to tree removal and repairs to his property. You are only responsible for your property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the neighbor could sue and several insurance policies have a stipulation pointing out that these companies are not responsible for lifeless or diseased trees. If this were to happen you might be held accountable for damages to the neighbor’s residential property and your insurance will not pay if they have a stipulation concerning dead or diseased trees. On the flip side if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the best way to protect 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 home you can use the written notification to place the cost of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know many homeowners who like to clean out gutters. We literally could start a gutter maintenance company with the quantity of telephone calls we get seeking out a good low-cost gutter cleaner. Every one wants a cheap gutter cleaner but all the inexpensive kind I know typically aren’t insured and consequently I refuse to recommend them. However clogged gutters are much worse compared to not having gutters at all. Clogged up downspouts cause the water to overflow into the face(fascia) boards and water caught behind the gutters causes them 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 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 stormy night-times as a result of a particular tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their residence. The fact is the sole way to make certain a tree doesn’t fall on the house is to clear away all big trees within close quarters. It can possibly be pricey to remove a load of trees near your West Point NY house and often this eliminates the fear but leaves behind some regret. Commonly fears can be calmed by having a tree service company examine the trees to make sure none of these have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree requires to be removed you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Just simply 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 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 sow a tree for every dollar donated and you can even specify the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a couple sown in a non harvest area within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
