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: Sometimes 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 recently lost a pretty big limb checked out by a tree professional that can do a risk evaluation on the tree to make sure more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service free of cost. 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 total “catch 22” state of affairs. On the one hand the shade that trees offer lowers cooling costs in the summer and provides a barrier against the winter wind. However the reduction in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenditures to increase (this is covered in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees beside houses can also help unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter the attic. A client of ours had us take down some trees touching his house because a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a lot of money having someone trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then had to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In scenarios where limbs are actually in contact with the house the continuous swaying of the trees can cause damaged roof shingles or siding.

Often when a tree is too near to a house we can simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if a lot of limbs need to be removed it can 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 pick out a more suitable location.

Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots may clog up your septic system| or they might crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or foundation. Since there is no alternative way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always advisable to conduct some research or refer to a landscape professional 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 just plan to sell the property before it reaches maturity leaving the new owner to have to hire a professional tree service to remove the tree.

Impact on surrounding landscape: Due to their overall size trees can overshadow much smaller plants. Home owners should select bushes or shrubs which are able to tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they have to live with a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that isn’t performing well underneath a tree can be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only do well in full direct sunlight. While it may be less costly to remove the tree| if you enjoy the tree you might just consult a landscape professional about switching to a different sort of grass to keep the tree.

Impact on home value:  While the right tree in the proper location can easily boost a property’s worth the inappropriate tree can impact property’s value. Often times we can enhance the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your home from the road. Unfortunately in some cases to improve the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.

Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees at times two things can not occupy the same area. This is the instance of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Generally in these scenarios tree removal is the sole solution and if you are really feeling depressed about taking out your best-loved tree you can always plant a different one. Even if it doesn’t mature in our life-time our children or somebody else’s children can take joy in it.

Liability issues: We are not lawyers but this is insights on how falling trees are basically interpreted according to the law. On the assumption that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not deemed to be negligent or to blame for the tree dropping down. You remove the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is liable when it comes to tree removal and repairs to his property. You are actually only liable for your property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the neighbor could file suit and some insurance policies have a stipulation stating that they are exempt for deceased or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you might 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 other hand if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the very best way to safeguard 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 position the cost of removal on your next-door neighbor.

Maintenance: I don’t know many people who like to clean gutters. We actually could start a gutter maintenance company with the quantity of phone calls we receive searching for a good cheap gutter cleaner. Every one would like a cheap gutter cleaner but all the inexpensive ones I know aren’t insured and for this reason I refuse to refer them. Having said that clogged gutters are much worse compared to not possessing gutters whatsoever. Blocked downspouts trigger the water to overflow into 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 soon 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 because of a specific tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their house. The fact is the sole way to guarantee a tree will never fall on the home is to take down all large trees within close quarters. It can possibly be pricey to remove a bunch of trees near your Westtown NY home and often this eases the fear but leaves some regret. Typically fears could be soothed by having a tree service expert assess 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 don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree destroyer. Just simply plant a fresh native tree at a much better location on your estate and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you don’t 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 dollar donated and you can also specify the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a couple planted in a non harvest place within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
