What Are the Most Common Tree Issues in Glen Burnie?

The trees in your Glen Burnie yard provide shade in the summer and beauty throughout the year. The area has a blend of native and non-native trees, with some growing to impressive heights while others offer a splash of color. The trees we see most often in the area are:

  • Eastern White Pine
  • Loblolly Pine
  • Virginia Pine
  • Eastern Hemlock
  • White Oak
  • Chestnut Oak
  • Black Oak
  • Northern Red Oak

The pines and oaks grow to stunning heights with thick trunks. This makes it hard to understand when something happens, and a tree needs to be removed. Here are a few of the most common reasons we need to remove trees in the Glen Burnie area. 

Damage From Insects

The warm and moist spring and summer are great environments for insects of all varieties. While these bugs play an essential part in the ecosystem, they can damage or destroy one of the trees in your Glen Burnie yard. These critters either want to turn your tree into a home or a food source. Here are a few of the insects that we typically see in the area

  • European Gypsy Moth
  • Asian Gypsy Moth
  • Asian Longhorned Beetle
  • Spotted Lanternfly

If you have an insect infestation in one of your trees, you probably have an infestation in other trees too. The good news is that if you catch an infestation early, there are available treatments to save the tree. First, you need to know the signs of an infection to have a chance for treatment. Here are a few signs to look out for:

  • Insects on the tree or swarming in the area
  • Channels or holes in the trunk
  • New leaves and limbs that look smaller than normal
  • Sunken areas where decay has occurred 
  • Discolored or misshapen leaves
  • Sudden lack of growth
  • Fewer leaves in the canopy

Our team is always ready to evaluate a tree you think might have an insect infestation and recommend a course of action. 

Damage From Winter Weather

While Glen Burnie doesn’t necessarily spend the entire winter as a white wonderland, it does see almost 12 inches of snow on average each year. The winter temperatures hover around the freezing mark each day and then plummet into the mid-20s each night. 

These extreme temperatures can create a condition called a hard freeze. A hard freeze freezes the moisture and nutrients into your soil, and your trees don’t get their much-needed essentials for an extended period. 

Your evergreen trees are built to withstand a hard freeze, although some young evergreens might not survive a hard freeze. When the spring thaw occurs, the tree in your yard should grow new leaves and limbs.

If you have a tree in your yard that doesn’t resume growing, the hard freeze might have damaged or killed it. You might have a tree that resumes growing with fresh leaves and limbs, but after a few weeks or a month, it dies. 

This happens when a portion of the tree becomes damaged and can no longer process nutrients in an area. This damage progresses to other areas of the tree, and eventually, the entire tree dies. 

Does the City of Glen Burnie Provide Any Assistance in Tree Removal Problems?

Anne Arundel County and the city of Glen Burnie don’t offer any assistance in removing trees on private property. However, they do trim and remove trees on public lands. Sometimes, there’s an easement on your property that’s considered public lands. It’s always a good idea to check with the city if you think the tree might be on an easement. 

Who Is Responsible For Fallen Tree Removal in Glen Burnie?

In Glen Burnie, the city is responsible for removing trees that grow on public land and easements. If the tree is on private property, such as in your yard, it’s your responsibility as the homeowner to remove it. This includes making the arrangements and covering the financial costs. 

If you’re a homeowner?

When a tree falls in your yard, it’s almost always on private property and your responsibility to have it removed. The only exception is an area of easement and a tree that falls in that area. 

If you’re a renter?

When you rent a home, your lease may specify that you take care of the routine yard work. There’s nothing routinary about a fallen tree. This responsibility falls to a homeowner. You do, however, need to let the homeowner know about any issues with a tree. 

If you’re a landlord?

In most cases, the landlord and the homeowner are the same people, which means that you’re responsible for removing a tree from the Glen Burnie yard. You might have a lease that says the tenant takes care of the yard, but that would include a fallen tree. 

If you’re a neighbor?

It isn’t uncommon for one of your neighbor’s trees to fall into their yard and yours with such tall trees. Unfortunately, you’re responsible for removing the portion of the tree that’s in your yard. 

There’s a chance that your neighbor knew of the damaged or diseased tree and ignored it. Your neighbor was negligent, and they’re liable for removing the tree and any damage it did to your home and property. 

However, it’s always a good idea in this situation to talk to your neighbor first. You might be able to work it out and maintain a friendly relationship. 

How Does the Soil Affect Trees in Glen Burnie?

The soil type that we see most often in Glen Burnie yards is sassafras. In the spring, this soil can warm up quickly, minimizing the effects of a hard freeze. Also, this soil drains well, which can lower your chances of a tree suffering from root rot. 

Does Weather Affect Tree Health in Glen Burnie?

Yes, the weather in Glen Burnie does affect the health of your trees. The winter weather can lead to a hard freeze that damages or kill a tree in your yard. Also, the area sees an average of 42 inches of rain each year, which can leave your tree roots exposed to excess moisture. 

All of this moisture can leave your tree vulnerable to root rot. This is a fungal disease that can damage a tree or kill it remains untreated. The spring and summer can bring violent storms. 

Thunderstorms can bring lightning that can split a tree in half with a direct strike. There’s also a possibility of tornadoes with winds high enough to rip a tree out by the roots. 

What if Dead Trees Are Near Power Lines in Glen Burnie?

When a dead tree sits near a power line or has fallen on one, it creates a hazardous situation. A dead tree on a power line indicates that you need to move away and call your local emergency services. Even when the tree isn’t on the line, you need to hire a professional service to safely remove it and ensure it doesn’t all onto the line. 

When a dead tree sits near a power line, there’s a chance that it grew on an easement owned by the power company. A tree on an easement would be the responsibility of the power company. Otherwise, it’s the Glen Burnie homeowner’s responsibility to call us to remove it. 

How Much Does Tree Removal Usually Cost in Glen Burnie?

One of the first questions that we hear from Glen Burnie homeowners is how much it will cost. Until we see the tree, we can’t give you an exact cost. The cost of removing a tree in the area ranges between $245 and $1,745 in most cases, with an average of about $645. Some factors affect your final bill. These include:

Condition of the Tree

When a tree dies or becomes damaged, various parts might begin to decay. These areas sink into the trunk and make removing the tree a challenge. We need to remove the tree without the decayed parts crumbling and pulling the tree above it down in an uncontrolled fall. This takes extra time and braces for the decayed areas. 

Location of the Tree

When we remove a tree, it mustn’t damage your home or other trees. If a tree sits close to your home or in a group of trees, it takes extra time and additional safety measures to get it down without hitting your home or the other trees. 

Additional Services

Many Glen Burnie homeowners want us to remove the stump and the tree or run the tree through a wood chipper. You can use the resulting wood chips as mulch around your yard. Both of these services require additional time and equipment.
