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 still a good idea to take each and every tree that has lost a good sized limb inspected by a tree professional that should do a risk assessment 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 require tree removal. We and most true tree service professionals carry out free inspections.

Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a house is a real “catch 22” situation. On the one hand the shade that trees render decreases cooling costs in the summer time and provides a barrier from the winter wind. On the other hand the reduction in sunlight can contribute to mold and rotten wood causing maintenance expenses to increase (this is covered in more detail in the maintenance part below). Trees near to houses can also allow unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to penetrate the attic. A homeowner of ours had us take down 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 shelled out a bunch of money having someone else trap and clear away the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| and then needed to re-insulate and re-wire the attic. In scenarios where limbs are actually touching the house the constant swaying of the trees can result in damaged shingles or siding.

Occasionally if a tree is too 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 cleared away it may cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In which case it may be better to remove the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or just simply look for 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 other 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 home before it reaches maturity leaving the next owner to require to pay a professional tree service to take out the tree.

Impact on surrounding landscape: Thanks to their overall size trees can dominate small plants. Home owners ought to decide on bushes or shrubs which have the ability to tolerate the competition for sunlight and water or they will have to live with a landscape not performing at it’s full potential. Grass that is not performing well underneath a tree could be assisted by increasing water and fertilizer but some lawns only prosper in full direct sunlight. Although it may be more affordable to remove the tree| if you enjoy the tree you could consult 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 proper location can increase a homes value the wrong tree can hurt a home’s value. In many cases we can boost the curb appeal of a building in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is just simply getting rid of the lower limbs which are blocking the view of the house from the road. However in some cases to boost the curb appeal we have to resort to tree removal.

Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees typically two things can not really occupy the very same site. This is the case of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| front yard| etc. Oftentimes in these circumstances tree removal is the sole solution and if you are feeling down about removing your beloved tree you can always plant another one. Albeit it doesn’t mature in our life time our children or somebody else’s kids can take joy in it.

Liability issues: are certainly not legal professionals but this is insights on how fallen trees are ordinarily translated based upon the law. In the event that the tree was not clearly dead or diseased 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 neighbor is responsible with respect to tree removal and repair works to his property. You are actually only liable for your property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is perished or unhealthy the next-door neighbor could sue and some insurance policies have a provision pointing out that they are not responsible for deceased or diseased 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 side if you have a next-door neighbor with a dead tree the best way to protect yourself is to advise 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 notification to position the fee of removal on your next-door neighbor.

Maintenance: I do not know many property owners who like to clean gutters. We really could start a gutter cleaning business with the amount of calls we receive seeking out a good inexpensive gutter cleaning service. Almost everyone wants to have a cheap gutter cleaner but all the cheap ones I know aren’t insured and that is why I refuse to recommend them. Having said that clogged gutters are more frustrating than not possessing gutters at all. Clogged downspouts cause the water to overflow into 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. Otherwise clean them yearly 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 times remove trees simply because some people lay awake on blustery nights as a result of a particular tree or trees that shake in the wind and looms over their property. The fact is the only way to make certain a tree doesn’t fall on the house is to clear away all large trees within close quarters. It can possibly be pricey to remove a load of trees near your West Point NY house and often this eases the fear but leaves some regret. Commonly fears could be relieved by having a tree service company inspect the trees to make certain none of these have any flaws that would make them a more than normal threat. In the event that a tree has to be taken down you do not need to beat yourself up for being a tree destroyer. Just simply plant a new native tree at a more desirable location on your property and you are doing your part to restore the growth cycle. If you do not have space on your property but still want to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They plant 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 sown in a non harvest site within New York and even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
