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: Sometimes storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is still a good practice to take every tree that has definitely lost a substantial limb checked by a tree professional who can do a risk evaluation on the tree to ascertain more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service free of charge. Injured trees are more 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 residence is a real “catch 22” state of affairs. On the one hand the shade that trees provide reduces cooling costs in the summertime and provides a buffer from the winter wind. However the drop in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance bills to grow (this is covered in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees near to houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to penetrate the attic. A homeowner of ours had us remove some trees touching on his house because 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 remove the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and afterwards needed to re-insulate and rewire the attic. In situations where limbs are actually in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged roof shingles or siding.
At times when a tree is very near to a house we may simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if a lot of limbs need to be removed it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be far better to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or just consider a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots can sometimes clog up your septic system| or they could crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or home. Since there is no alternative way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always advised to carry out some research or consult with a landscape company when choosing on a location for trees around a home or driveway. Often people fail to anticipate 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 subsequent owner to have to hire 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 should decide on bushes or shrubs which will tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they need to deal with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that is not performing well under a tree could be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only do well in full sunshine. While it may be less costly to remove the tree| if you really love the tree you might consult a landscape expert about switching to a different kind of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the most ideal tree in the correct location can easily boost a homes worth the wrong tree can impact a home’s value. In many cases we can improve the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is simply removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your home from the road. However at times to boost the curb appeal we have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes 2 things can not really occupy the same spot. This is the case of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Generally in these situations tree removal is the sole choice and if you are feeling depressed about extracting your treasured tree you can always plant a different one. Even though it does not mature in our life time our children or somebody else’s kids may enjoy it.
Liability issues: We are certainly not lawyer or attorneys however this is insights on how falling trees are often translated based upon the law. On the assumption that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be negligent or liable for the tree falling. You remove the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is obligated when it comes to tree removal and repair works to his property. You are only responsible for your property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the neighbor could file suit and a few insurance policies have a provision stating that these companies are exempt for perished or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you may be held accountable for damages to the neighbor’s property and your insurance will not pay if they have a clause 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 find out 99 % of professional tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your house you can use the written notification to place the expense of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know many homeowners that like to clean out gutters. We actually could start a gutter cleaning operation with the number of phone calls we receive looking for a good affordable gutter cleaner. Almost everyone wants to have a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the cheap kind I know aren’t insured and for this reason I refuse to refer them. Nevertheless clogged gutters are more frustrating compared to not possessing gutters whatsoever. Blocked 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 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 if you get fed up with that we are a tree removal expert.
Peace of Mind: We often times remove trees simply because some people lay awake on blustery night-times due to a certain tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over the house. The fact is the only way to make sure a tree does not fall on the home is to take down all large trees inside of striking distance. It can be costly to remove a lot of trees near your West Point NY property and often this gets rid of the fear but leaves some regret. Often fears could be calmed by having a tree service professional inspect the trees to make sure none of them have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree has to be cleared away you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree destroyer. Just plant a new native tree at a better location on your estate and you are doing your part to renew the growth cycle. If you do not have space on your property but still want 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 also choose the location by US State or country. Chop down a tree in your yard and have a few cultivated in a non harvest location within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
