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 Fort Montgomery 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: Usually storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is still a good idea to take every tree that has definitely lost a large limb examined by a tree professional who may 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 necessitate tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals make available free inspections.

Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a property is a real “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade which trees offer lowers cooling expenditures in the summertime and provides a buffer against the winter wind. Meanwhile the decrease in sunlight can add to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance costs to grow (this is covered in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees close to houses can also help unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to get into the attic. A client of ours had us take down some trees touching his house because a family of squirrels which had gotten in his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a lot of money having somebody trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and then needed to re-insulate and rewire the attic. In situations where limbs are effectively in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can result in damaged shingles or siding.

Sometimes whenever a tree is very near to a property we can just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from the house but if a lot of limbs need to be cleared away it could cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be more suitable to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or basically go for a more suitable location.

Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots may clog up your septic system| or they can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or building. Since there is no way to stop this other than tree removal it is always advisable to carry out some research or consult a landscape company when choosing 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 the home before it reaches maturity leaving the subsequent owner to have to hire a professional tree service to take out the tree.

Impact on surrounding landscape: As a result of their scale trees can dominate much smaller plants. Home-owners should go with bushes or shrubs which can tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they have to live with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that is not performing well beneath a tree could be assisted by stepping up water and fertilizer but some lawns only flourish in full direct sunlight. While it may be less costly to take out the tree| if you enjoy the tree you may seek advice from a landscape expert about switching to a different kind of grass to spare the tree.

Impact on home value:  While the right tree in the proper location can easily increase a property’s resale value the wrong tree can hurt property’s value. Often we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is merely removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your house from the road. Unfortunately in some cases to enhance the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.

Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically two things can not really occupy the same spot. Such is the scenario of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Usually in these situations tree removal is the only choice and if you are really feeling down about extracting your treasured tree you can always plant a different one. Albeit it doesn’t mature in our lifespan our kids or somebody else’s children can enjoy it.

Liability issues: are certainly not lawyers however this is how falling trees are usually translated based upon the law. In the case that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not deemed to be neglectful or to blame for the tree falling. You remove the section of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is obligated with respect to 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 dead or unhealthy the neighbor could file suit and some insurance policies have a stipulation stating that these companies are not responsible for lifeless or diseased trees. If this were to happen you might be held accountable for damages to the neighbor’s property and your insurance will not pay if they have a clause about dead or diseased trees. On the other side if you have a 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 assessment. Then if the tree falls on your home you can use the written notification to position the expense of removal on your next-door neighbor.

Maintenance: I don’t know of many property owners who like to clean out gutters. We really could start a gutter cleaning operation with the number of phone calls we receive seeking out a good cheap gutter cleaning service. Every one would like a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the cheap kind I know typically aren’t insured and for this reason I refuse to recommend them. However clogged gutters are more frustrating compared to not possessing gutters at all. Clogged downspouts cause the water to overflow onto the face(fascia) boards and water trapped behind the gutters causes them 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 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 stormy night-times as a result of a certain tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their house. The fact is the only way to guarantee a tree doesn’t fall on the house is to take out all large trees within close quarters. It can be expensive to remove a great deal of trees near your Fort Montgomery NY property and sometimes this alleviates the fear but leaves behind some remorse. Often fears can be appeased by having a tree service expert examine the trees to make certain none of them have any flaws that would make them a more than normal threat. In the event that a tree has to be cleared away you really don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree destroyer. Simply plant a new native tree at a better location on your estate and you are doing your part to renew the growth cycle. If you don’t have space on your property but still would like to make a contribution you can make a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They sow a tree for every dollar donated and you can also specify the location by US State or country. Cut a tree in your yard and have a couple sown in a non harvest area within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
