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: Sometimes storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is a good practice to have any tree that has recently lost a significant limb checked by a tree professional who should 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 more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always warrant tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals make available free inspections.

Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a house is a total “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade which trees provide reduces cooling bills in the summer time and provides a buffer from the winter wind. On the other hand the decrease in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance bills to increase (this is covered in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees alongside houses can also enable unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to gain access to 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 in his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a bunch of money having somebody trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and afterwards needed to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In scenarios where limbs are effectively touching the house the constant swaying of the trees can result in damaged shingles or home siding.

Often whenever a tree is too close to a house we may simply trim or prune the tree limbs away from your home but if many limbs need to be removed it could cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be more suitable to take out the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or just consider 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 property. Since there is no alternative way to prevent this other than tree removal it is always advised to carry out some research or consult a landscape company when choosing on a location for trees around a house 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 building before it reaches maturity leaving the subsequent owner to have to pay a professional tree service to take out the tree.

Impact on surrounding landscape: Because of their size trees can dominate smaller plants. Home owners ought to choose bushes or shrubs which will tolerate the competition for sunshine and water or they need to live with a landscape not performing at it’s best potential. Grass that isn’t really performing well beneath a tree can be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some grasses only prosper in full direct sunlight. Even though it may be more affordable to take out the tree| if you love the tree you could speak with a landscape company about changing to a different sort of grass to save the tree.

Impact on home value:  While the right tree in the appropriate location can easily increase a homes worth the inappropriate tree can damage a home’s value. Oftentimes we can greatly improve the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is simply removing the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your home from the road. Having said that in some cases to enhance the curb appeal we will have to resort to tree removal.

Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes 2 things can not really inhabit the same site. This is the instance of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Usually in these cases tree removal is the only alternative and if you are feeling down about taking out your treasured tree you can always plant another one. Even though it may not mature in our life time our children or someone else’s children can take joy in it.

Liability issues: We are not legal representatives but this is how falling trees are commonly interpreted based upon the law. If the tree was not obviously dead or diseased you are not considered to be neglectful or at fault for the tree falling. You clear away the chunk of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is obligated with respect to tree removal and repairs to his property. You are only responsible for your residential property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is dead or diseased the neighbor could sue and some insurance policies have a provision stating that these companies are exempt for lifeless or diseased trees. If this were to happen you may be held accountable for damages to the neighbor’s residential property and your insurance will not pay if they have a clause about 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 notify 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 house you can use the written notification to position the cost of removal on your next-door neighbor.

Maintenance: I don’t know of many homeowners that like to clean out gutters. We really could start a gutter maintenance business with the amount of phone calls we get seeking out a good inexpensive gutter cleaning service. Everyone would like a cheap gutter cleaner but all the cheap kind I know typically aren’t insured and therefore I refuse to recommend them. However clogged gutters are much worse compared to not possessing gutters whatsoever. Clogged downspouts cause the water to overflow onto the face(fascia) boards and water caught 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 shortly after all the leaves have fallen and in the event that 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 night-times due to a specific tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their residence. Unfortunately the sole way to make certain a tree does not fall on the home is to remove all large trees within close quarters. It could be downright costly to remove a number of trees near your West Point NY residential property and often this gets rid of the fear but leaves behind some regret. Typically fears could be relieved by having a tree service company evaluate the trees to make sure none of them have any flaws that would make them a higher than normal threat. If a tree needs to be removed you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree destroyer. Simply plant a brand new native tree at a more desirable location on your estate and you are doing your part to renew the growth cycle. If you do not 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 every dollar donated and you can also specify the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a few seeded in a non harvest location within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
