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: Usually 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 lost a pretty big limb surveyed by a tree professional that can possibly 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 offer free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a residence is a real “catch 22” state of affairs. On the one hand the shade which trees provide reduces cooling costs in the summer time and provides a buffer from the winter wind. However the reduction in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance expenditures to increase (this is addressed in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees near to houses can also help unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to get into the attic. A customer of ours had us take down 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 bunch of money having someone else trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then afterwards needed to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In cases where limbs are effectively touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can result in damaged shingles or home siding.
In some cases if a tree is very close to a house we may simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if several limbs need to be cleared away it could cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be far better to take out the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or just consider a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots may clog up your septic system| or they could crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or foundation. Since there is no alternative way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always best to do 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 building before it reaches maturity leaving the new owner to require to find a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: As a result of their overall size trees can dominate smaller plants. House owners ought to select bushes or shrubs that will tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they have to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well under a tree can be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only flourish in full sun light. Although it may be less costly to take out the tree| if you enjoy the tree you might seek advice from a landscape company about changing to a different sort of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the right tree in the proper location can certainly improve a homes resale value the wrong tree can impact a home’s value. In many cases we can enhance the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is merely clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. However at times to improve the curb appeal we have to turn to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes 2 things can not really inhabit the very same area. Such is the case of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Normally in these circumstances tree removal is the sole solution and if you are really feeling down about removing your favorite tree you can always plant another one. Albeit it may not mature in our life time our children or somebody else’s children may take joy in it.
Liability issues: are not legal representatives however this is the way fallen trees are generally interpreted based upon the law. Assuming that the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be neglectful or liable for the tree dropping down. You remove the part of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is obligated with regard to tree removal and repairs to his property. You are actually only responsible for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or unhealthy the neighbor could sue and several insurance policies have a stipulation pointing out that these companies are not responsible for dead or unhealthy 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 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 house you can use the written notification to place the expense of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I don’t know of many property owners who like to clean out gutters. We really could start a gutter maintenance operation with the amount of calls we get looking for a good affordable gutter cleaning service. Every one wants to have a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the cheap ones I know aren’t insured and for this reason I refuse to recommend them. However clogged gutters are more frustrating than not having gutters whatsoever. Clogged up downspouts trigger the water to overflow into the face(fascia) boards and water caught 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. Or else clean them yearly right after all the leaves have fallen and if you get fed up with that we are a tree removal expert.
Peace of Mind: We often times remove trees simply because some people lay awake on stormy night-times because of a certain tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over the house. Unfortunately the only way to insure a tree does not fall on the house is to take out all large trees within striking distance. It may be expensive to remove a lot of trees near your Westbrookville NY home and sometimes this alleviates the fear but leaves behind some regret. Often fears could be soothed by having a tree service expert examine the trees to make certain none of them have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. In the event that a tree requires to be cleared away you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Simply plant a new native tree at a more desirable location on your estate and you are doing your part to renew the growth cycle. If you don’t have space 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 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 and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
