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 Westtown 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 have any tree that has definitely lost a substantial limb inspected by a tree professional who can 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 warrant tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals make available free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a residence is a total “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade which trees provide decreases cooling bills in the summer months and provides a barrier against the winter wind. On the other hand the decrease in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenditures to increase (this is covered in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees alongside houses can also help unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to penetrate the attic. A homeowner of ours had us remove some trees touching his house because a family of squirrels which had penetrated his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a bunch of money having someone else trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then needed to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In situations where limbs are effectively in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can result in damaged roof shingles or siding.
Sometimes if a tree is too near to a property we will be able to simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if many limbs need to be removed it could cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be more suitable to remove the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or simply go with 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 property. Since there is no alternative way to stop this other than tree removal it is always best to carry out some research or consult a landscape company when deciding 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 new owner to require to pay a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their overall size trees can overshadow small plants. Homeowners ought to go with bushes or shrubs that will tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they have to deal with a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that isn’t performing well under a tree could be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only prosper in full sunshine. Although it may be cheaper to take out the tree| if you enjoy the tree you might seek advice from a landscape expert about switching to a different sort of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the perfect tree in the most appropriate location can certainly increase a homes resale value the wrong tree can impact property’s value. Often times we can boost the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your house from the road. Having said that in certain cases to improve the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes two things can not really occupy the very same location. This is the case of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Usually in these instances tree removal is the only solution and if you are feeling depressed about extracting your favorite tree you can always plant a different one. Albeit it may not mature in our lifespan our kids or someone else’s kids can take joy in it.
Liability issues: Our people are not lawyers however this is the way falling trees are often translated according to the law. If the tree was not clearly dead or diseased you are not deemed to be negligent or at fault for the tree falling. You remove the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is liable for tree removal and repairs to his property. You are actually only liable for your residential property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is perished or unhealthy the next-door neighbor could file suit and a few insurance policies have a clause saying that these companies are not responsible for perished or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you may be held accountable for damages 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 safeguard yourself is to advise them in writing and let them find out 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 position the expense of removal on your neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know many homeowners that like to clean gutters. We literally could start a gutter maintenance company with the quantity of calls we receive trying to find a good inexpensive gutter cleaning service. Everyone would like a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the inexpensive kind I know aren’t insured and for that reason I refuse to refer them. Having said that clogged gutters are worse than not having gutters at all. Blocked 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 install a gutter cap like http://www.leafguard.com or http://www.gutterguardian.com. Or else clean them yearly soon after all the leaves have fallen and in the event that you get fed up with that we are a tree removal specialist.
Peace of Mind: We often times remove trees simply because some people lay awake on windy nights as a result of a specific tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over the house. Unfortunately the only way to guarantee a tree will never fall on the house is to take out all large trees within striking distance. It may be pricey to remove a bunch of trees near your Westtown NY house and sometimes this gets rid of the fear but leaves behind some remorse. Commonly fears could be calmed by having a tree service pro evaluate the trees to make certain none of these have any defects that would make them a higher than normal threat. In the event that a tree requires to be taken down you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree destroyer. Just simply plant a brand-new native tree at a better location on your property and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you do not have room on your property but still would like to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They plant a tree for every single 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 cultivated in a non harvest site within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
