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 West Point 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 still a good idea to have each and every tree that has likely lost a large limb looked at by a tree professional that can do a risk assessment on the tree to ensure that more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service free of charge. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always necessitate tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals offer free inspections.

Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a home is a total “catch 22” state of affairs. On the one hand the shade which trees offer reduces cooling expenditures in the summer and provides a barrier from the winter wind. However the reduction in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenses to increase (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees beside houses can also make it possible for unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter into the attic. A client of ours had us remove some trees touching on his house thanks to 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 somebody trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then needed to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In cases where limbs are actually in contact with the house the constant swaying of the trees can lead to damaged roof shingles or home siding.

Occasionally whenever a tree is too near to a home we may simply trim or cut back the tree limbs away from your home but if lots of limbs need to be taken off it may cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be more effective to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or just select a more suitable location.

Tree roots cause a problem: Unfortunately tree roots will clog up your septic system| or they could crack your driveway| sidewalk| pool or home. Since there is no other to stop this other than tree removal it is always advised to carry out some research or refer to a landscape company when choosing on a location for trees around a house or driveway. Often people fail to envisage the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they may plan to sell the building before it reaches maturity leaving the subsequent owner to have to find a professional tree service to take out the tree.

Impact on surrounding landscape: Because of their proportions trees can overshadow much smaller plants. Property owners ought to decide on bushes or shrubs which will tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they will have to tolerate a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well beneath a tree can be helped by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only prosper in full sunlight. While it may be less expensive to take out the tree| if you really like the tree you might just speak with a landscape company about switching to a different kind of grass to keep the tree.

Impact on home value:  While the most ideal tree in the right location can certainly boost a property’s value the inappropriate tree can impact a home’s value. Often times we can boost the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is simply getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your home from the road. Having said that at times to improve the curb appeal we have to turn to tree removal.

Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees often 2 things can not occupy the very same location. This is the scenario of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Generally in these situations tree removal is the sole option and if you are really feeling down about taking out your favorite tree you can always plant another one. Even if it may not mature in our life time our children or somebody else’s children may well take joy in it.

Liability issues: are certainly not lawyers however this is insights on how fallen trees are basically translated based upon the law. If the tree was not obviously dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be negligent or liable for the tree falling. You clear away the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is responsible for tree removal and repair works to his property. You are only responsible for your property in this instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the neighbor could file suit and a few insurance policies have a stipulation stating that these companies are exempt for dead or unhealthy 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 flip side if you have a neighbor with a dead tree the best way to protect yourself is to advise them in writing and let them find out 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 don’t know of many property owners who like to clean out gutters. We actually could start a gutter cleaning company with the amount of calls we get looking for a good low-cost gutter cleaner. Every one wants a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the low-priced kind I know aren’t insured and consequently I refuse to recommend them. At the same time clogged gutters are worse compared to not possessing 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. Otherwise clean them yearly shortly 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 oftentimes remove trees simply because some people lay awake on blustery night-times as a result of a particular tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over their house. The fact is the sole way to guarantee a tree doesn’t fall on the home is to take down all big trees inside of close quarters. It could be pricey to remove a great deal of trees near your West Point NY home and often this eliminates the fear but leaves some regret. Often fears can be appeased by having a tree service company inspect the trees to make certain none of them have any defects that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree requires to be cleared away you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree executioner. Just plant a brand new native tree at a 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 grow a tree for each dollar donated and you can even choose the location by US State or country. Chop down a tree in your yard and have a few sown in a non harvest place within New York or even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
