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 Westbrookville 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: Occasionally storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is still a good idea to have every tree that has definitely lost a substantial limb surveyed by a tree professional that should do a risk evaluation on the tree to ensure that more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service totally free. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always require tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals provide free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a house is a total “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade which trees provide decreases cooling expenditures in the summer season and provides a barrier against the winter wind. On the other hand the reduction in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance expenses to grow (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees beside houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter the attic. A homeowner of ours had us remove some trees touching his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had gotten in his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a bunch of money having someone trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and then needed to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In cases where limbs are effectively in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or home siding.
Often if a tree is very near to a house we can just trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if a lot of limbs need to be taken off it might cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be more suitable to take out the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or simply choose 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 foundation. Since there is no other to stop this other than tree removal it is always advisable to conduct some research or refer to a landscape company when choosing 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 just plan to sell theÂ building before it reaches maturity leaving the subsequent owner to require to pay a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Thanks to their overall size trees can dominate small plants. Property owners should go with bushes or shrubs which have the ability to tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they need to deal with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that isn’t performing well beneath a tree can be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only do well in full sunlight. While it may be less costly to remove the tree| if you love the tree you could consult a landscape company about changing to a different type of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the most ideal tree in the most appropriate location can certainly boost a property’s worth the inappropriate tree can hurt a home’s value. Often we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your property from the road. However in some 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 occupy the very same spot. Such is the case of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Usually in these scenarios tree removal is the only choice and if you are really feeling down about extracting your treasured tree you can always plant a different one. Even though it may not mature in our life-time our children or someone else’s kids can take joy in it.
Liability issues: are certainly not lawyer or attorneys however here is the way fallen trees are usually translated based upon the law. If the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy 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 responsible when it comes to tree removal and repair works to his property. You are actually only responsible for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the neighbor could sue and several insurance policies have a provision pointing out that these companies are not responsible for lifeless or diseased trees. If this were to happen you can be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s property and your insurance will not pay if they have a clause about dead or diseased trees. On the flip 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 professional 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 neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know many homeowners who like to clean out gutters. We literally could start a gutter cleaning operation with the quantity of telephone calls we get seeking out a good low-cost gutter cleaning service. Everyone wants to have 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. Having said that clogged gutters are worse than not possessing gutters whatsoever. Blocked downspouts cause the water to overflow onto the face(fascia) boards and water caught behind the gutters causes them 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 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 simply because some people lay awake on stormy nights due to a certain tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over the house. The fact is the sole way to guarantee a tree doesn’t fall on the home is to clear away all large trees within striking distance. It could be expensive to remove a great deal of trees near your Westbrookville NY residence and often this alleviates the fear but leaves behind some remorse. Typically fears can be soothed by having a tree service pro examine 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 do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Just plant a brand new native tree at a much 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 wish to make a contribution you can make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They plant a tree for each dollar donated and you can even specify the location by US State or country. Chop down a tree in your yard and have a few planted in a non harvest location within New York or even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
