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 a good practice to take every tree that has recently lost a significant limb examined by a tree professional that can do a risk evaluation on the tree to verify more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service free of cost. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always necessitate tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals provide free inspections.
Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a home is a real “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade that trees offer reduces cooling bills in the summer months and provides a barrier from the winter wind. Meanwhile the reduction in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenditures to grow (this is covered in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees beside houses can also permit unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to penetrate the attic. A client of ours had us remove some trees touching on his house because a family of squirrels which had gotten in his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a lot of money having someone trap and remove the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then had to re-insulate and re-wire the loft. In scenarios where limbs are effectively touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can result in damaged roof shingles or home siding.
At times whenever a tree is too close to a property we will be able to simply trim or cut back the tree limbs away from your home but if many limbs need to be cleared away it can cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be better to take out the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or simply select a more suitable location.
Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will clog up your septic system| or they might crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or foundation. Since there is no way to stop this other than tree removal it is always advisable to conduct some research or hire a landscape professional 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 might plan to sell theÂ home before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to require to find a professional tree service to remove the tree.
Impact on surrounding landscape: As a result of their proportions trees can overshadow small plants. Property owners ought to choose bushes or shrubs which have the ability to tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they will have to live with a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well beneath a tree can be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only prosper in full sunlight. While it may be less expensive to remove the tree| if you love the tree you might just consult a landscape expert about switching to a different sort of grass to keep the tree.
Impact on home value: While the best tree in the correct location can certainly boost a property’s worth the wrong tree can damage a home’s value. Often we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. However at times to enhance the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.
Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically two things can not really inhabit the very same area. This is the scenario of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Normally in these cases tree removal is the sole solution and if you are really feeling down about clearing away your beloved tree you can always plant a different one. Even though it may not mature in our life time our children or someone else’s children may well enjoy it.
Liability issues: Our people are certainly not legal representatives however here is the way in which falling trees are generally interpreted based upon the law. Assuming that the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not deemed to be neglectful or to blame for the tree dropping down. You remove the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is obligated with regard to tree removal and repairs to his premises. You are only liable for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or unhealthy the next-door neighbor could sue and a few insurance policies have a provision pointing out that they are exempt for deceased or diseased 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 stipulation concerning dead or diseased trees. On the flip side if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to safeguard yourself is to notify them in writing and let them know 99 % of competent tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your residence you can use the written notice to position the cost of removal on your next-door neighbor.
Maintenance: I do not know of many property owners that like to clean gutters. We literally could start a gutter maintenance business with the amount of phone calls we receive trying to find a good cheap gutter cleaner. Almost everyone would like a cheap gutter cleaner but all the inexpensive ones I know typically aren’t insured and for this reason I refuse to refer them. Unfortunately clogged gutters are more frustrating compared to not having gutters whatsoever. Blocked downspouts trigger 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 soon 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 because some people lay awake on windy night-times as a result of a certain tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their property. Unfortunately the only way to insure a tree doesn’t fall on the house is to take down all big trees inside of close quarters. It could be expensive to remove a bunch of trees near your Westtown NY residential property and sometimes this eases the fear but leaves behind some remorse. Typically fears could be calmed by having a tree service pro examine the trees to ensure none of these have any defects that would make them a higher than normal threat. In the event that a tree requires to be removed you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. Simply plant a brand-new native tree at a far better location on your property and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you don’t have room on your property but still want to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They plant a tree for every dollar donated and you can also choose the location by US State or country. Chop down a tree in your yard and have a couple cultivated in a non harvest location within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
