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 practice to take any specific tree that has likely lost a significant limb checked out by a tree professional who can possibly do a risk evaluation on the tree to ensure that more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service free of charge. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always require tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals make available free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a house is a total “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade that trees offer lowers cooling costs in the summer months and provides a buffer from the winter wind. Meanwhile the reduction in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenses to grow (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees beside houses can also help unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter into the attic. A client of ours had us take down 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 lot of money having someone trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then afterwards had to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In situations where limbs are effectively touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged shingles or siding.
Occasionally if a tree is too close to a home we may just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from your home but if lots of limbs need to be removed it may cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be more suitable to remove the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or just decide on 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 other to stop this other than tree removal it is always best to do some research or hire a landscape company when deciding on a location for trees around a home 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 home before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to require to locate a professional tree service to take out the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Because of their overall size trees can overshadow small plants. Homeowners should go with bushes or shrubs that are able to tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they will have to deal with a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well beneath a tree could be assisted by stepping up water and fertilizer but some grasses only flourish in full sun light. While it may be less costly to take out the tree| if you enjoy the tree you might consult a landscape expert about switching to a different kind of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the best tree in the correct location can easily boost a homes value the inappropriate tree can hurt a home’s value. Often times we can enhance the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is merely getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your house from the road. Unfortunately in certain cases to boost the curb appeal we will have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes 2 things can not inhabit the same area. This is the case of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Often in these circumstances tree removal is the only option and if you are feeling down about getting rid of your beloved tree you can always plant another one. Even though it does not mature in our lifetime our children or somebody else’s children may appreciate it.
Liability issues: are certainly not attorneys but here is insights on how falling trees are ordinarily interpreted according to the law. If the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be neglectful or at fault for the tree falling. You remove the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is responsible for tree removal and repair works to his property. You are only responsible for your residential property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is perished or unhealthy the next-door neighbor could sue and a few insurance policies have a stipulation saying 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 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 next-door neighbor with a dead tree the very 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 fee of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know of many people that like to clean gutters. We really could start a gutter cleaning business with the quantity of phone calls we get searching for a good low-cost gutter cleaning service. Every one would like a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the low-cost ones I know aren’t insured and consequently I refuse to recommend them. At the same time clogged gutters are worse compared to not possessing gutters whatsoever. Obstructed 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 put in 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 specialist.
Peace of Mind: We often times remove trees because some people lay awake on windy nights because of a specific tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over their house. The fact is the sole way to insure a tree will never fall on the home is to take out all large trees within close quarters. It could be pricey to remove a load of trees near your Westbrookville NY residential property and sometimes this eliminates the fear but leaves some remorse. Typically fears can be calmed by having a tree service professional examine the trees to make sure none of them have any flaws that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree needs to be removed you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree destroyer. Just simply plant a brand-new native tree at a more desirable 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 wish to make a contribution you can make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They sow a tree for every single dollar donated and you can even specify the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a couple cultivated in a non harvest site within New York or even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
