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 idea to have each and every tree that has likely lost a sizable limb looked at by a tree professional who can possibly do a risk evaluation on the tree to make sure more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service free of cost. 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 house is a real “catch 22” state of affairs. On the one hand the shade which trees provide lowers cooling expenditures in the summer and provides a barrier against the winter wind. Meanwhile the reduction in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenditures to grow (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees alongside houses can also enable unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to get into the attic. A homeowner of ours had us take down some trees touching on 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 else trap and remove the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then afterwards had to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In scenarios where limbs are actually in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can result in damaged roof shingles or siding.
Sometimes if a tree is too near to a home we can simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if a lot of limbs need to be cleared away it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be more effective to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or simply settle on 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 property. Since there is no other to prevent this other than tree removal it is always advised to conduct 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 subsequent owner to have to find a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Thanks to their size trees can overshadow much smaller plants. Property owners should certainly go for bushes or shrubs that can tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they need to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well under a tree could be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only flourish in full direct sunlight. Whilst it may be less costly to remove the tree| if you really love the tree you might seek advice from a landscape expert about changing to a different kind of grass to save the tree.
Impact on home value: While the most ideal tree in the appropriate location can increase a homes value the wrong tree can hurt a home’s value. Often times 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 home from the road. However in certain cases to enhance the curb appeal we will have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes two things can not really inhabit the very same spot. Such is the instance of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Oftentimes in these scenarios tree removal is the only alternative and if you are really feeling down about taking out your beloved tree you can always plant another one. Even though it doesn’t mature in our lifespan our children or someone else’s children may well take joy in it.
Liability issues: are not attorneys but here is the way in which fallen trees are generally translated based upon the law. On the assumption that the tree was not clearly dead or diseased you are not deemed to be neglectful or at fault for the tree falling. You remove the part of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is liable for tree removal and repair works to his property. You are actually only liable for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or unhealthy the next-door neighbor could file suit and a few insurance policies have a provision pointing out that they are exempt for deceased or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you might be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s residential property and your insurance will not pay if they have a clause about dead or diseased trees. On the other hand if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the best way to protect yourself is to notify 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 home you can use the written notification to place the cost of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I do not know of many individuals who like to clean out gutters. We literally could start a gutter cleaning business with the quantity of phone calls we get searching for a good cheap gutter cleaning service. Every one would like a cheap gutter cleaner but all the low-priced kind I know aren’t insured and as a result I refuse to refer them. Nevertheless clogged gutters are more frustrating compared to not having gutters at all. Obstructed downspouts trigger the water to overflow into 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 shortly after all the leaves have fallen and if 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 windy night-times as a result of a certain tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their residence. The fact is the only way to insure a tree will never fall on the house is to take down all large trees within close quarters. It could be costly to remove a great deal of trees near your West Point NY residence and often this gets rid of the fear but leaves behind some regret. Typically fears could be calmed by having a tree service company evaluate the trees to ensure none of these have any flaws that would make them a more than normal threat. In the event that a tree has to be removed you don’t 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 don’t have space on your property but still wish to make a contribution you can make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They grow a tree for every dollar donated and you can also specify the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a few cultivated in a non harvest area within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
