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: Usually storm damage may just be a broken limb that doesn’t compromise the tree but it is a good idea to have any specific tree that has lost a pretty big limb looked over by a tree professional who may do a risk assessment on the tree to ensure that more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We offer this service free of charge. 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” state of affairs. On the one hand the shade which trees offer decreases cooling expenditures in the summertime and provides a barrier against the winter wind. However the reduction in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance bills to increase (this is covered in more detail in the maintenance paragraph below). Trees beside houses can also help unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to get into the attic. A homeowner of ours had us remove 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 spent a bunch of money having somebody trap and remove the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then afterwards needed to re-insulate and rewire the loft. In situations where limbs are effectively touching the house the constant swaying of the trees can result in damaged shingles or home siding.

Often when a tree is too close to a house we can just trim or prune the tree limbs away from the house but if a lot of limbs need to be cleared away it might cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be more effective to remove the tree and plant another more compact growing tree or basically 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 home. Since there is no way to stop this other than tree removal it is always advised to carry out some research or hire a landscape company when choosing on a location for trees around a building or driveway. Often people fail to comprehend the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they just plan to sell the house 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 proportions trees can overshadow smaller plants. House owners should select bushes or shrubs which will tolerate the competition for direct sunlight and water or they have to deal 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 do well in full direct sunlight. While it may be more affordable to remove the tree| if you enjoy the tree you may speak with a landscape professional about switching to a different kind of grass to spare the tree.

Impact on home value:  While the most ideal tree in the right location may boost a homes market value the inappropriate tree can impact a home’s value. Oftentimes we can enhance the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is basically getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your house from the road. However in certain cases to enhance the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.

Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically two things can not really inhabit the same spot. This is the instance of a tree and your brand-new garage| home expansion| driveway| etc. Generally in these scenarios tree removal is the only solution and if you are feeling depressed about taking out your favorite tree you can always plant another one. Even if it will not mature in our lifetime our kids or somebody else’s kids can take joy in it.

Liability issues: Our people are not lawyer or attorneys but here is insights on how falling trees are commonly translated according to the law. If the tree was not clearly dead or diseased you are not considered to be negligent or at fault for the tree falling. You dispose of the portion of the tree that falls on your property and your next-door neighbor is obligated when it comes to tree removal and repair works to his premises. You are only responsible for your residential property in this instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the neighbor could file suit and some insurance policies have a provision saying that they are not responsible for perished or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you can be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s residential property and your insurance will not pay if they have a stipulation concerning dead or diseased trees. On the other hand if you have a 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 competent tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your house you can use the written notification to position the fee of removal on your neighbor.

Maintenance: I do not know many people that like to clean out gutters. We literally could start a gutter maintenance operation with the number of telephone calls we receive looking for a good cheap gutter cleaning service. Almost everyone wants to have a cheap gutter cleaning service but all the inexpensive ones I know typically aren’t insured and for this reason I refuse to recommend them. Unfortunately clogged gutters are more frustrating compared to not having gutters at all. Clogged downspouts cause 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 right after all the leaves have fallen and if you get fed up with that we are a tree removal specialist.

Peace of Mind: We often remove trees simply because some people lay awake on blustery night-times due to a specific tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over the house. The fact is the only way to guarantee a tree doesn’t fall on the house is to take out all big trees within close quarters. It can be costly to remove a bunch of trees near your West Point NY property and sometimes this gets rid of the fear but leaves behind some regret. Often fears can be calmed by having a tree service pro examine the trees to ensure none of these have any flaws that would make them a more than normal threat. If a tree has to be cleared away you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree executioner. Just simply plant a new native tree at a far better location on your property and you are doing your part to restore 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 sow a tree for every dollar donated and you can also choose the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a few planted in a non harvest place within New York and even choose to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
