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 Highland Falls 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 practice to have any specific tree that has recently lost a significant limb checked out by a tree professional that may do a risk assessment on the tree to ascertain more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service free of charge. Injured trees are most likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always require tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals carry out 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 summertime and provides a barrier against the winter wind. Meanwhile the decrease in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenses to increase (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees near to houses can also permit unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to get into the attic. A homeowner of ours had us remove some trees touching on his house due to the fact that a family of squirrels which had gotten inside his attic and tramped down his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a bunch of money having somebody trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then afterwards had to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In situations where limbs are actually touching the house the continuous swaying of the trees can result in damaged roof shingles or home siding.

Occasionally whenever a tree is very close to a home we will be able to just trim or cut back the tree limbs away from your home but if several limbs need to be removed it could cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be better to remove the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or simply pick a more suitable location.

Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will clog up your septic system| or they can crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or building. Since there is no alternative way to stop this other than tree removal it is always prudent to carry out some research or hire a landscape company when deciding on a location for trees around a building 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 building before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to require to find a professional tree service to remove the tree.

Impact on surrounding landscape: Because of their overall size trees can overshadow smaller plants. Property owners should go with bushes or shrubs that will tolerate the competition for sun light and water or they need to cope with a landscape not performing at it’s maximum potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well under a tree can be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only flourish in full direct sunlight. Even though it may be cheaper to take out the tree| if you enjoy the tree you may seek advice from a landscape professional about changing to a different sort of grass to spare the tree.

Impact on home value:  While the best tree in the proper location can improve a property’s worth the inappropriate tree can damage property’s value. Often we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a property in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is merely clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. Unfortunately in some cases to improve the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.

Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically two things can not inhabit the very same area. Such is the instance of a tree and your brand new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Usually in these scenarios tree removal is the only choice and if you are feeling down about clearing away your best-loved tree you can always plant another one. Even though it will not mature in our lifespan our kids or somebody else’s kids may well appreciate it.

Liability issues: We are not attorneys however this is the way in which fallen trees are ordinarily interpreted based upon the law. In the event that the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not deemed to be negligent or liable for the tree falling. You remove the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is responsible with respect to tree removal and repair works to his property. You are actually only responsible for your property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is perished or unhealthy the next-door neighbor could sue and a few insurance policies have a stipulation pointing out that these companies are not responsible for lifeless 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 clause concerning dead or diseased trees. On the other hand 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 find out 99 % of professional tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your residence you can use the written notification to place the expense of removal on your neighbor.

Maintenance: I do not know many people that like to clean gutters. We actually could start a gutter cleaning business with the quantity of phone calls we get looking for a good affordable gutter cleaner. Everyone wants a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the cheap kind I know typically aren’t insured and that is why I refuse to recommend them. Nevertheless clogged gutters are worse compared to not having gutters whatsoever. Obstructed 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. Otherwise clean them yearly shortly 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 because some people lay awake on blustery nights because of a particular tree or trees that rock in the wind and looms over their residence. The fact is the only way to guarantee a tree will never fall on the home is to take out all large trees within striking distance. It may be costly to remove a bunch of trees near your Highland Falls NY residential property and often this gets rid of the fear but leaves some remorse. Commonly fears could be relieved by having a tree service professional assess the trees to ensure none of them have any flaws that would make them a more than normal threat. In the event that a tree needs to be taken down you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree monster. Just simply plant a fresh native tree at a more desirable 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 want to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They grow 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 sown in a non harvest place within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
