What Causes Trees to Require Tree Removal and Disposal Services
Our trees here in the Greater Metro Houston area can benefit or suffer from our subtropical climate. We have hot and humid summers and unstable winters that produce conditions that can threaten the life of our trees. Throughout the year, we can get hit with conditions where trees bend under the strain of high winds, torrential rain, lightning, sleet and rain, snow, tornadoes and hurricanes where they can sustain significant damage. In addition, the high humidity offers a warm environment for pests to eat away at the leaves and structure of a tree.
Why You Should Always Hire a Pro to Remove and Dispose of a Tree on Your Property
Unfortunately, there are times when you just have to bite the bullet and remove a tree on your property. The tree may obstruct your view. If damaged, a tree can cause harm to people and pets, destroy structures on your property and on adjoining properties. Damaged and diseased trees can fall on a house, garage, fence and your neighbor’s roof. They can take out power or cable lines and start a fire. If this happens, the power company can charge you for the damage.
Tree removal and disposal is a complicated and dangerous task. Once you decide to eliminate a tree from your landscape, you face the dilemma of safely removing an object that could weigh a ton or more. Our subtropical weather here in the Houston metro area can produce tall and full-canopied trees. However, the rain and humidity can also be detrimental. That unstable tree in your yard can weigh from 1,000 pounds to several tons.
The weight of a tree varies according to height, diameter, density, volume, type of hardwood or softwood and whether it has leaves or not. A pine tree that is 50 feet tall can weigh up to1800 pounds, while a very large oak or pecan tree can weigh around 20,000 pounds. This is like moving a rhinoceros, a polar bear, a water buffalo or even a car. The massive weight is incredible and you should never consider doing this on your own.
If you try to do this yourself and you damage anything while in the process of removal and disposal, your homeowner’s insurance may not cover your claim because you are not licensed to remove a tree. It is far too complicated and dangerous for any homeowner to be cutting down and removing a tree.
