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 still a good practice to take each and every tree that has likely lost a significant limb checked by a tree professional who can 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 most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always require tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals offer 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 decreases cooling costs in the summer and provides a barrier from the winter wind. On the other hand the drop in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance expenditures to grow (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees near to houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to get into the attic. A client of ours had us take down some trees touching 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 shelled out a lot of money having someone else trap and remove the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then needed to re-insulate and rewire the attic. In situations where limbs are effectively in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or siding.
Occasionally whenever a tree is very close to a home we will be able to simply trim or cut back the tree limbs away from the house but if many 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 basically opt for a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will clog up your septic system| or they might crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or foundation. Since there is no way to stop this other than tree removal it is always advisable to carry out some research or refer to a landscape company 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 may plan to sell theÂ home before it reaches maturity leaving the subsequent owner to have to locate a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their proportions trees can overshadow much smaller plants. Homeowners should certainly decide on bushes or shrubs that will tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they will have to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well under a tree could be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some lawns only flourish in full direct sunlight. Although it may be cheaper to take out the tree| if you enjoy the tree you might consult a landscape expert about switching to a different type of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the perfect tree in the appropriate location can certainly improve a homes market value the wrong tree can hurt a home’s value. Oftentimes we can enhance the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is merely removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your property from the road. However at times to enhance the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes two things can not really occupy the same spot. Such is the instance of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Oftentimes in these scenarios tree removal is the only alternative and if you are feeling depressed about taking out your beloved tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it will not mature in our lifetime our children or somebody else’s kids may well enjoy it.
Liability issues: Our people are not lawyer or attorneys but here is the way in which fallen trees are normally translated based upon the law. In the event that the tree was not obviously dead or diseased you are not considered to be neglectful or liable for the tree dropping down. You clear away the section of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is obligated with regard to tree removal and repairs to his premises. You are actually only responsible for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the next-door neighbor could sue and several insurance policies have a stipulation saying that they are not responsible for lifeless or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you might be held accountable for damages to the neighbor’s property and your insurance will not pay if they have a stipulation about dead or diseased trees. On the other side if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the best way to protect yourself is to advise them in writing and let them know 99 % of competent tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your residence you can use the written notification to position the cost of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I do not know many property owners that like to clean out gutters. We literally could start a gutter maintenance company with the number of calls we get searching for a good low-cost gutter cleaning service. Every one would like a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-cost ones I know aren’t insured and consequently I refuse to refer them. Nevertheless clogged gutters are much worse than not possessing gutters at all. Obstructed downspouts trigger 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. Or else clean them yearly right 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 simply because some people lay awake on blustery night-times due to a particular tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over their property. Unfortunately the only way to make certain a tree doesn’t fall on the house is to remove all large trees within close quarters. It may be costly to remove a number of trees near your West Point NY residence and often this alleviates the fear but leaves some remorse. Typically fears can be calmed by having a tree service company evaluate the trees to make sure none of these have any defects that would make them a higher than normal threat. In the event that a tree needs to be taken down you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree executioner. Just simply plant a brand-new native tree at a far better location on your estate and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you do not have room on your property but still wish to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They plant a tree for every single dollar donated and you can even choose the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a couple cultivated in a non harvest location within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
