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 take every tree that has recently lost a substantial limb checked out by a tree professional who can do a risk evaluation on the tree to ascertain more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service for free. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always require tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals offer free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a property is a real “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade that trees provide reduces cooling expenditures in the summertime and provides a barrier from the winter wind. Meanwhile the decrease in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance costs to increase (this is covered in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees alongside houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to get into the attic. A client of ours had us remove some trees touching his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a lot of money having someone else trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then had to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In cases where limbs are actually touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can result in damaged roof shingles or home siding.
Often when a tree is too near to a home we may just trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if lots of limbs need to be cleared away it may cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be far better to remove the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or just simply pick out a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots can sometimes clog up your septic system| or they might crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or home. Since there is no other to prevent this other than tree removal it is always best to carry out some research or consult with a landscape company when deciding on a location for trees around a building or driveway. Often people fail to anticipate 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 new owner to have to hire a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: Because of their scale trees can overshadow smaller plants. Homeowners should go for bushes or shrubs that will tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they have to deal with a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well under a tree can be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only flourish in full sunlight. Although it may be more affordable to remove the tree| if you really love the tree you could consult a landscape company about switching to a different kind of grass to spare the tree.
Impact on home value: While the most ideal tree in the most appropriate location may boost a homes value the wrong tree can hurt a home’s value. Often we can improve the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is simply getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. Unfortunately sometimes to boost the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees at times 2 things can not really occupy the same area. Such is the instance of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Normally in these situations tree removal is the sole choice and if you are really feeling depressed about clearing away your treasured tree you can always plant another one. Even though it does not mature in our life time our children or someone else’s children may take joy in it.
Liability issues: are not legal representatives but here is how falling trees are generally translated according to the law. On the assumption that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be negligent or liable for the tree falling. You clear away the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is responsible for tree removal and repairs to his premises. You are actually only liable for your residential property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is dead or unhealthy the neighbor could sue and some insurance policies have a stipulation stating that they are exempt for dead or unhealthy 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 stipulation about dead or diseased trees. On the other side if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to protect yourself is to advise them in writing and let them know 99 % of competent tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your residence you can use the written notice to position the fee of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I really don’t know of many homeowners that like to clean out gutters. We really could start a gutter maintenance operation with the quantity of telephone calls we receive searching for a good inexpensive gutter cleaner. Every one wants a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the low-cost kind I know aren’t insured and for this reason I refuse to recommend them. However clogged gutters are much worse than not having gutters at all. Clogged up downspouts trigger the water to overflow onto the face(fascia) boards and water trapped 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. Or else clean them yearly 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 remove trees simply because some people lay awake on windy night-times due to a certain tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their property. Unfortunately the sole way to make certain a tree doesn’t fall on the home is to take down all large trees inside of close quarters. It can be costly to remove a lot of trees near your Westtown NY property and often this alleviates the fear but leaves behind some regret. Typically fears could be soothed by having a tree service company assess the trees to make certain none of them have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. In the event that a tree has to be taken down you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. Just plant a fresh native tree at a more desirable location on your estate and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you do not 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 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 area within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
