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 a good idea to take any specific tree that has recently lost a sizable limb examined by a tree professional who should do a risk evaluation on the tree to check more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service free of charge. Injured trees are most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always necessitate tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals make available free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a home is a real “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade that trees offer reduces cooling bills in the summer time and provides a buffer from the winter wind. However the decrease in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance bills 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 customer of ours had us take down 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 shelled out a bunch of money having someone trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and then had to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In scenarios where limbs are actually in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or home siding.
Occasionally when a tree is very close to a home we will be able to simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if a lot of limbs need to be cleared away it might cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be more effective to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or basically go with a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots can sometimes clog up your septic system| or they can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or home. Since there is no other to stop this other than tree removal it is always best to do some research or refer to a landscape company when deciding on a location for trees around a property 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 property before it reaches maturity leaving the subsequent owner to require to find a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Thanks to their overall size trees can dominate much smaller plants. Homeowners ought to decide on bushes or shrubs that are able to 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 beneath a tree could be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only flourish in full direct sunlight. While it may be more affordable to remove the tree| if you cherish the tree you could speak with a landscape expert about switching to a different sort of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the right tree in the proper location can boost a property’s worth the wrong tree can hurt a home’s value. In many cases we can improve the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is just simply getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. Having said that in some cases to enhance the curb appeal we will have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees at times 2 things can not really inhabit the same spot. This is the scenario of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Oftentimes in these instances tree removal is the sole option and if you are really feeling down about clearing away your best-loved tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it does not mature in our lifespan our children or someone else’s children can take joy in it.
Liability issues: We are certainly not attorneys however here is the way in which falling trees are normally interpreted based upon the law. In the event that the tree was not clearly dead or diseased you are not deemed to be negligent or liable for the tree dropping down. You remove the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is obligated with regard to tree removal and repair works to his property. You are only liable for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is perished or unhealthy the neighbor could file suit and a few insurance policies have a clause pointing out that they are not responsible for perished or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you might 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 flip side if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to safeguard yourself is to notify them in writing and let them know 99 % of competent tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your residence you can use the written notice to place the fee of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I do not know many people who like to clean out gutters. We actually could start a gutter cleaning company with the quantity of phone calls we receive searching for a good inexpensive gutter cleaning service. Everybody wants a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the low-cost ones I know typically aren’t insured and that is why I refuse to recommend them. Unfortunately clogged gutters are more frustrating than not having gutters whatsoever. Congested downspouts trigger the water to overflow into 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 soon after all the leaves have fallen and if you get fed up with that we are a tree removal expert.
Peace of Mind: We frequently remove trees simply because some people lay awake on stormy nights as a result of a specific tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their residence. The fact is the sole way to insure a tree does not fall on the house is to take out all big trees within striking distance. It may be expensive to remove a load of trees near your West Point NY residential property and sometimes this alleviates the fear but leaves behind some remorse. Commonly fears can be relieved by having a tree service pro evaluate the trees to ensure none of them have any flaws that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree needs to be removed you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree executioner. Just simply plant a brand-new native tree at a more desirable location on your estate and you are doing your part to renew 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 sow a tree for every dollar donated and you can even specify the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a few seeded in a non harvest site within New York or even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
