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 a good idea to take every tree that has lost a good sized limb looked over by a tree professional that can possibly do a risk assessment on the tree to verify 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 most true tree service professionals carry out 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 reduces cooling expenditures in the summer months and provides a barrier from the winter wind. However the decrease in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance costs to grow (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees close to houses can also make it possible for unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to penetrate the attic. A customer of ours had us take down some trees touching his house due to the fact that a family of squirrels which had penetrated his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He shelled out a bunch of money having somebody trap and remove the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then needed to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In cases where limbs are effectively touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can lead to damaged roof shingles or home siding.

In some cases if a tree is very near to a home we can simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if many limbs need to be taken off 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 another more compact growing tree or just choose on 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 home. Since there is no way to stop this other than tree removal it is always prudent to carry out some research or consult with a landscape professional when choosing on a location for trees around a home or driveway. Often people fail to comprehend the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they might plan to sell the property before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to require to hire a professional tree service to take out the tree.

Impact on surrounding landscape: Because of their size trees can overshadow much smaller plants. Home owners ought to go with bushes or shrubs which can tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they need to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well beneath a tree could be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some grasses only prosper in full sun light. Although it may be more affordable to remove the tree| if you really love the tree you might just seek advice from a landscape professional about switching to a different type of grass to keep the tree.

Impact on home value:  While the perfect tree in the right location can improve a property’s worth the inappropriate tree can damage property’s value. Often we can improve the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is simply removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your property from the road. However sometimes to enhance the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.

Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes 2 things can not occupy the very same location. This is the scenario of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Normally in these situations tree removal is the sole alternative and if you are really feeling depressed about extracting your favorite tree you can always plant another one. Even though it doesn’t mature in our life time our kids or somebody else’s children can enjoy it.

Liability issues: We are not attorneys however here is the way in which fallen trees are generally translated based upon the law. In the case that the tree was not obviously dead or diseased you are not considered to be neglectful or at fault for the tree dropping down. You clear away the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is obligated with regard to tree removal and repair works 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 some insurance policies have a clause pointing out that these companies are not responsible for perished or diseased trees. If this were to happen you may be held accountable for damages to the neighbor’s property and your insurance will not pay if they have a clause concerning dead or diseased trees. On the flip 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 know 99 % of professional tree services will give a free evaluation. Then if the tree falls on your residence you can use the written notice to position the expense of removal on your neighbor.

Maintenance: I really don’t know many people that like to clean gutters. We actually could start a gutter cleaning operation with the number of calls we get searching for a good affordable gutter cleaning service. Almost everyone 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 compared to not possessing gutters whatsoever. Blocked 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 right after all the leaves have fallen and if you get fed up with that we are a tree removal expert.

Peace of Mind: We oftentimes remove trees simply because some people lay awake on stormy night-times as a result of a certain tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their property. The fact is the only way to guarantee a tree doesn’t fall on the home is to remove all large trees within close quarters. It can be downright costly to remove a load of trees near your Fort Montgomery NY house and sometimes this eases the fear but leaves behind some regret. Commonly fears could be soothed by having a tree service pro inspect the trees to make certain none of them have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree needs to be cleared away you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. Simply plant a brand-new 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 wish to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They plant a tree for each dollar donated and you can also choose the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a few seeded in a non harvest area within New York or even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
