Trees are an important part of our property and its overall value. They provide much needed shade in Houston’s hot and humid climate, and they add aesthetic value and noise reduction as well. However, trees on our property can become damaged over time or be the source of other problems on our property, so you might consider tree removal as the solution to your existing problems. Because removing a tree from your property is a major process, it is best to consider some important factors before you make this decision.
First, if your tree threatens to cause damage to nearby structures or to individuals due to falling branches, your tree may simply need some professional tree trimming to eliminate the threat of damage. Certified Arborists can make the skilled trims needed to preserve the health of your tree and also protect nearby buildings, property and individuals from harm. Getting weakened or very heavy branches trimmed or removed by Certified Arborists is a much easier and faster solution than complete tree removal.
In some cases, your trees and tree roots may be impairing or threatening nearby areas such as your sidewalks and swing sets, or the excessive shade from your trees may be killing your grass due to the lack of sunlight. Rather than remove the tree to eliminate the problem, you might consider alternate options such as combining tree trimming with rerouting your sidewalk to prevent tree roots from shifting concrete or moving your children’s play area to a different part of your property. If your mature shade tree is significantly hindering your grass growth due to insufficient sunlight, consider removing the grass near the tree and replacing it with another type of ground covering such as a rock garden or shade-tolerant turf.
However, the trees on your property might be causing major issues that leave tree removal as your only viable solution. Examples would be when trees are growing directly into the path of power lines, when tree roots are causing structural damage to your home or business foundation, trees that are growing too near each other and compromising tree health, and when your tree is threating to fall over onto a home or other structure. In these instances, tree removal by Certified Arborists is your best option to ensure the tree threat is eliminated safely and efficiently.
