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 take every tree that has likely lost a substantial limb checked by a tree professional who may do a risk evaluation on the tree to check more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service for free. Injured trees are most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always warrant tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals carry out free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a residence is a real “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade that trees provide lowers cooling bills in the summertime and provides a buffer against the winter wind. On the other hand the drop in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance bills to increase (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees close to houses can also permit unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to get into the attic. A client of ours had us remove some trees touching on his house owing to a family of squirrels which had gotten in his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a lot of money having someone trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then had to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In situations where limbs are effectively touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can cause damaged shingles or home siding.
Sometimes when a tree is very near to a home we may simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if several limbs need to be cleared away it might cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be far better to remove the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or basically think about a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots may clog up your septic system| or they can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or foundation. Since there is no way to stop this other than tree removal it is always advised to carry out some research or consult a landscape company when deciding on a location for trees around a house or driveway. Often people fail to understand 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 new owner to require to hire a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: A result of their size trees can overshadow much smaller plants. Home owners ought to select bushes or shrubs which can tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they will have to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well beneath a tree can be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some lawns only prosper in full sun light. While it may be less costly to remove the tree| if you really love the tree you may seek advice from a landscape expert about changing to a different kind of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the right tree in the proper location can increase a homes market value the wrong tree can hurt property’s value. Often times we can boost the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is merely removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your property from the road. However sometimes to boost the curb appeal we have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees often two things can not occupy the very same site. This is the case of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Normally in these scenarios tree removal is the only solution and if you are feeling depressed about removing your best-loved tree you can always plant another one. Even if it may not mature in our life-time our children or someone else’s kids may well enjoy it.
Liability issues: We are not lawyers however this is how fallen trees are ordinarily interpreted based upon the law. In the case that the tree was not obviously dead or diseased you are not considered to be neglectful or at fault for the tree dropping down. You remove the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is responsible when it comes to tree removal and repairs to his property. You are only liable for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the neighbor could file suit and some insurance policies have a stipulation saying that these companies are not responsible for deceased or diseased trees. If this were to happen you can be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s residential property and your insurance will not pay if they have a stipulation concerning dead or diseased trees. On the other hand if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to protect yourself is to notify them in writing and let them know 99 % of professional tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your house you can use the written notification to place the fee of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know many homeowners who like to clean out gutters. We literally could start a gutter maintenance company with the number of calls we receive seeking out a good low-cost gutter cleaning service. Everyone wants to have a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the cheap ones I know typically aren’t insured and as a result I refuse to recommend them. At the same time clogged gutters are worse than not having gutters at all. Clogged downspouts cause the water to overflow into the face(fascia) boards and water caught 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 after all the leaves have fallen and in the event that 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 windy nights because of a certain tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over the house. The fact is the only way to insure a tree doesn’t fall on the home is to clear away all large trees within close quarters. It may be expensive to remove a number of trees near your Westbrookville NY home and sometimes this gets rid of the fear but leaves behind some remorse. Typically fears can be soothed by having a tree service pro examine the trees to make certain none of them have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree has to be removed you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree destroyer. Just plant a new native tree at a far better location on your property and you are doing your part to renew the growth cycle. If you don’t have room on your property but still would like 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 also choose the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a couple seeded in a non harvest place within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
