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 practice to have any tree that has likely lost a good sized limb examined by a tree professional who may do a risk evaluation on the tree to make sure more limbs aren’t injured and waiting to fall. We provide this service totally free. Injured trees are more likely to fail/fall but injuries don’t always require tree removal. We and almost all true tree service professionals offer free inspections.

Tree outgrows it’s area: Trees close to a home is a real “catch 22” scenario. On the one hand the shade that trees offer reduces cooling costs in the summertime and provides a buffer from the winter wind. Meanwhile the drop in sunlight can bring about mold and rotten wood causing repair and maintenance expenditures to grow (this is dealt with in more detail in the maintenance section below). Trees close to houses can also enable unwanted pests like squirrels and mice to enter into the attic. A homeowner of ours had us take down some trees touching on his house thanks to a family of squirrels which had penetrated his attic and trampled his insulation and chewed electrical wires. He spent a lot of money having someone trap and take out the squirrels| repair the holes they chewed in the roof eaves| then afterwards needed to re-insulate and re-wire the loft. In situations where limbs are effectively touching the house the constant swaying of the trees can cause damaged shingles or siding.

Often if a tree is too near to a home we may simply trim or cut back the tree limbs away from the house but if lots of limbs need to be removed it might cause the tree to no longer be aesthetically pleasing. In that case it may be better to remove the tree and plant a different more compact growing tree or just go for 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 stop this other than tree removal it is always advisable to conduct some research or hire a landscape professional when deciding on a location for trees around a building or driveway. Often people fail to envisage the mature growth size of a tree before they plant it or they just plan to sell the property before it reaches maturity leaving the subsequent owner to have to locate a professional tree service to remove the tree.

Impact on surrounding landscape: As a result of their overall size trees can dominate smaller plants. Home owners ought to go for bushes or shrubs which are able to 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 performing well underneath a tree could be helped by stepping up water and fertilizer but some grasses only flourish in full direct sunlight. While it may be cheaper to take out the tree| if you really love the tree you might consult a landscape professional about changing to a different type of grass to keep the tree.

Impact on home value:  While the best tree in the appropriate location can certainly increase a property’s market value the inappropriate tree can hurt property’s value. Often times we can improve the curb appeal of a house in the woods by raising the tree canopy which is simply clearing away the lower limbs which are blocking the view of your house from the road. Having said that in certain cases to enhance the curb appeal we will have to turn to tree removal.

Additions or Renovations: When it comes to trees sometimes 2 things can not inhabit the same location. This is the case of a tree and your new garage| home expansion| entrance| etc. Normally in these circumstances tree removal is the only alternative and if you are feeling down about extracting your best-loved tree you can always plant a different one. Albeit it may not mature in our life-time our children or somebody else’s kids may take joy in it.

Liability issues: Our people are certainly not lawyers but here is insights on how fallen trees are often translated based upon the law. If the tree was not clearly dead or unhealthy you are not considered to be negligent or at fault for the tree dropping down. You remove the chunk of the tree that falls on your property and your neighbor is responsible with respect to tree removal and repairs to his premises. You are actually only responsible for your residential property in this particular instance. If the tree that falls is perished or diseased the next-door neighbor could file suit and several insurance policies have a stipulation saying that they are exempt for dead or unhealthy trees. If this were to happen you could be held accountable for damage to the neighbor’s 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 safeguard yourself is to advise them in writing and let them know 99 % of competent tree services will give a free assessment. Then if the tree falls on your residence you can use the written notice to place the expense 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 receive trying to find a good affordable gutter cleaning service. Almost everyone wants to have a cheap gutter cleaner but all the inexpensive ones I know aren’t insured and therefore I refuse to recommend them. However clogged gutters are more frustrating compared to not having gutters whatsoever. Blocked 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. Alternatively 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 windy nights because of a certain tree or trees that move in the wind and looms over their house. Unfortunately the only way to make certain a tree will never fall on the house is to take out all large trees within striking distance. It can possibly be downright costly to remove a number of trees near your West Point NY residence and sometimes this alleviates the fear but leaves behind some remorse. Typically fears can be soothed by having a tree service pro assess 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 taken down you don’t need to beat yourself up for being a tree killer. Just plant a fresh 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 wish to make a contribution you can provide a donation to http://www.plantit2020.org They plant a tree for every single dollar donated and you can even specify the location by US State or country. Fell a tree in your yard and have a few cultivated in a non harvest location within New York or even opt to replant rainforests in Africa and Latin America.
