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: Usually storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is a good practice to take each and every tree that has recently lost a significant limb examined 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 for free. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always require tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals perform free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a property is a real “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade which trees offer reduces cooling costs in the summer months and provides a buffer against the winter wind. On the other hand the reduction in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance costs to increase (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees alongside houses can also permit unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to get 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 tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a bunch of money having somebody trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then needed to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In cases where limbs are effectively in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can lead to damaged roof shingles or home siding.
At times if a tree is too near to a property we may just trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if lots of limbs need to be cleared away it may cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be better to take out 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 will clog up your septic system| or they can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or building. Since there is no alternative way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always advisable to conduct some research or consult with a landscape company when deciding on a location for trees around a house or driveway. Often people fail to anticipate 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 new owner to require to find a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Thanks to their scale trees can dominate small plants. House owners should decide on bushes or shrubs that will tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they will have to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s best 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 sunshine. Although it may be more affordable to take out the tree| if you really love the tree you could speak with a landscape professional about changing to a different sort of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the best tree in the correct location can certainly increase a property’s worth the inappropriate tree can impact a home’s value. Oftentimes we can improve 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. Unfortunately in some cases to improve the curb appeal we have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees often 2 things can not really occupy the very same location. Such is the scenario of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Normally in these instances tree removal is the sole solution and if you are really feeling down about extracting your treasured tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it doesn’t mature in our life-time our children or somebody else’s children can take joy in it.
Liability issues: are certainly not lawyer or attorneys but this is the way in which fallen trees are often translated based upon the law. In the event that the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not deemed to be negligent or liable for the tree falling. You dispose of the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is responsible for tree removal and repairs to his property. You are only liable for your property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the next-door neighbor could sue and some insurance policies have a stipulation stating that they are exempt for deceased or diseased trees. If this were to happen you may 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 very best way to protect yourself is to advise them in writing and let them know 99 % of competent tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your house you can use the written notification to place the fee of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I do not know of many people that like to clean out gutters. We actually could start a gutter maintenance operation with the amount of calls we get seeking out a good cheap gutter cleaner. Everyone would like a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the inexpensive ones I know aren’t insured and for this reason I refuse to refer them. Having said that clogged gutters are worse than not possessing gutters whatsoever. Clogged up downspouts trigger the water to overflow onto the face(fascia) boards and water trapped behind the gutters causes them 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 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 frequently remove trees because some people lay awake on stormy night-times as a result of a specific tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over the house. The fact is the sole way to guarantee a tree does not fall on the home is to clear away all large trees within close quarters. It can be pricey to remove a bunch of trees near your West Point NY residential property and often this gets rid of the fear but leaves some regret. Commonly fears can be relieved by having a tree service professional examine the trees to make sure none of these have any flaws that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree requires to be removed you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Just simply plant a brand-new native tree at a far 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 provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They sow 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 area within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
