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 examined by a tree professional who may do a risk evaluation on the tree to verify more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service free of charge. Injured trees are most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always require tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals make available free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a residence is a total “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade which trees offer reduces cooling expenditures in the summer time and provides a barrier against the winter wind. Meanwhile the decrease in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance costs to grow (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees next to houses can also help unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter into the attic. A client of ours had us remove some trees touching his house due to the fact that a family of squirrels which had gotten in 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 had to re-insulate and re-wire the loft. In situations where limbs are actually touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can cause damaged roof shingles or home siding.
Often whenever a tree is too near to a home we will be able to just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from the house but if a lot of limbs need to be cleared away it could 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 decide on a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will clog up your septic system| or they could crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or foundation. Since there is no alternative way to stop this other than tree removal it is always best to carry out some research or consult a landscape professional when choosing on a location for trees around a property 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 property before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to have to pay a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their overall size trees can overshadow small plants. Property owners should certainly go with bushes or shrubs that can tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they have to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that is not performing well beneath a tree could be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only do well in full sunshine. Whilst it may be less expensive to remove the tree| if you really like the tree you might just consult a landscape expert about switching to a different sort of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the best tree in the appropriate location can easily boost a homes resale value the wrong tree can hurt a home’s value. In many cases we can improve the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your house from the road. Having said that in certain cases 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 very same site. This is the case of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Generally in these circumstances tree removal is the sole option and if you are really feeling depressed about clearing away your best-loved tree you can always plant another one. Even though it doesn’t mature in our life-time our children or someone else’s kids may well take joy in it.
Liability issues: We are not lawyers but here is the way fallen trees are ordinarily interpreted according to the law. If the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be negligent or to blame for the tree falling. You dispose of the section of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is obligated when it comes to tree removal and repairs to his property. You are actually only responsible for your residential property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the neighbor could file suit and several insurance policies have a stipulation saying that they are exempt for perished or diseased trees. If this were to happen you can be held accountable for damages 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 side if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to safeguard yourself is to advise them in writing and let them find out 99 % of competent tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your residence you can use the written notification to place the cost of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I do not know many homeowners who like to clean out gutters. We literally could start a gutter maintenance business with the number of phone calls we get seeking out a good affordable gutter cleaner. Every one would like a cheap gutter cleaner but all the inexpensive kind I know typically aren’t insured and therefore I refuse to refer them. Unfortunately clogged gutters are much worse than not possessing gutters at all. Obstructed 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 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 if you get fed up with that we are a tree removal specialist.
Peace of Mind: We often remove trees simply because some people lay awake on blustery nights due to a certain tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their residence. The fact is the sole way to make certain a tree will never fall on the house is to take out all big trees inside of close quarters. It could be expensive to remove a great deal of trees near your West Point NY home and often this alleviates the fear but leaves some regret. Commonly fears can be soothed by having a tree service professional examine the trees to make sure none of them have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree needs to be removed you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. Simply plant a new native tree at a better location on your property and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you don’t have room on your property but still want to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They grow a tree for every 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 planted in a non harvest place within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
