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: Occasionally storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is a good idea to have any specific tree that has lost a good sized limb examined by a tree professional that should do a risk evaluation on the tree to verify more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service for free. Injured trees are most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always warrant tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals perform free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a home is a total “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade that trees offer reduces cooling expenditures in the summer months and provides a buffer from the winter wind. On the other hand the reduction in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenses to grow (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees beside houses can also make it possible for unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to gain access to the attic. A customer of ours had us remove some trees touching his house because 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 else trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then had to re-insulate and rewire the attic. In situations where limbs are actually touching the house the constant swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or siding.
In some cases whenever a tree is too near to a home we may simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if several limbs need to be cleared away it might cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be better to remove the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or just simply find a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will clog up your septic system| or they can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or property. Since there is no other to prevent this other than tree removal it is always prudent to conduct some research or refer to a landscape professional when choosing 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 home before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to require to find a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: A result of their overall size trees can dominate smaller plants. Home-owners ought to select bushes or shrubs which have the ability to tolerate the competition for sun light and water or they have to live with a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that is not performing well beneath a tree can be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only flourish in full sunshine. Whilst it may be less expensive to remove the tree| if you enjoy the tree you might just consult a landscape company about changing to a different type of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the best tree in the proper location can certainly improve a property’s value the inappropriate tree can damage a home’s value. Often we can enhance the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is simply clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your property from the road. Unfortunately sometimes to enhance the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically two things can not really occupy the same location. Such is the case of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Often in these situations tree removal is the sole choice and if you are really feeling down about removing your best-loved tree you can always plant another one. Even if it doesn’t mature in our lifetime our kids or someone else’s children may well enjoy it.
Liability issues: Our people are not legal representatives but this is the way falling trees are normally interpreted based upon the law. On the assumption that the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be neglectful or to blame for the tree falling. You dispose of the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is liable when it comes to tree removal and repair works to his property. You are actually only liable for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or unhealthy the next-door neighbor could file suit and several insurance policies have a clause stating that they are exempt for dead 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 flip side if you have a next-door 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 notice to position the cost of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know of many homeowners that like to clean out gutters. We literally could start a gutter maintenance operation with the amount of calls we get searching for a good affordable gutter cleaning service. Everybody wants to have a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-priced kind I know aren’t insured and consequently I refuse to recommend them. However clogged gutters are much worse compared to not having gutters whatsoever. Obstructed downspouts trigger the water to overflow onto the face(fascia) boards and water trapped 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 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 oftentimes remove trees because some people lay awake on stormy night-times due to a particular tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over their property. Unfortunately the only way to insure a tree doesn’t fall on the house is to take out all big trees inside of striking distance. It can be expensive to remove a great deal of trees near your West Point NY home and often this eases the fear but leaves behind some regret. Commonly fears can be relieved by having a tree service professional evaluate the trees to ensure none of them have any defects that would make them a higher than normal threat. In the event that a tree requires to be cleared away you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. Just plant a brand-new native tree at a better location on your estate and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you don’t have room on your property but still would like 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 also specify the location by US State or country. Chop down a tree in your yard and have a few seeded in a non harvest location within New York or even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
