What Are the Most Common Tree Issues in Howard County?

Whether you have a smaller yard or a massive one, you enjoy the trees in your outdoor space that add curb appeal and shade throughout the year. In Howard County, there are trees of all shapes and sizes. We see many native and non-native trees. Some trees that we see most often in the area, include: 

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

The pine tree grows to staggering heights and oak trees present an imposing image. When you have these majestic trees growing in your Howard County yard, it’s hard to reconcile their beauty and the need to have one removed. Here are a few of the most common tree issues that we see in the area:

Damage From Storms

When the weather warms up or cools down, Howard County sees some violent storms. With thunderstorms, there is always lightning that can damage or kill a healthy tree. 

A direct strike from lightning can actually split a tree of almost any size in half. Even if the tree doesn’t split, a lightning strike can cause extensive damage. You may find that the tree doesn’t recover and needs to be removed. 

With these violent storms, there is always the possibility of a tornado. Over the years, Howard County has seen many tornadoes that have been called massive damage. 

The funnel in a tornado can spin up to 300 mph, depending on its category. Nothing is safe from wind speeds that high. These winds can pick up a car, tear the roof off your home, or pull a tree out of the ground, roots, and all. 

The debris field presents a real danger even when your Howard County home isn’t in the direct path of the tornado. When the funnel pulls up things, it releases them into the debris field. 

The debris field can extend up to a mile in either direction and up to 50 miles behind the twister. These falling items can strike your tree and damage it. 

If you think you have a tree damaged during a storm, our team can evaluate its condition. 

Damage From Extreme Winter Weather

Howard County enjoys a white winter wonderland with a yearly average of over 18 inches of snow. During the day, the temperatures tend to hover around the low 40s and then plunge into the low 20s when the sun goes down. 

Extended periods of freezing weather lead to a condition that’s known as a hard freeze. The weather is so cold for so long that the soil in your yard freezes along with nutrients and moisture in it. 

The tree roots can no longer access these essential parts of their growth and survival. The evergreen trees in your Howard County yard won’t have any issue enduring a hard freeze unless it’s a young tree. 

Some of your trees might not do as well during a hard freeze. When spring arrives, you expect the trees in your yard to bounce back and begin growing again. If one doesn’t, it might have died during the hard freeze period

Does the City of Howard County Provide Any Assistance in Tree Removal Problems?

Howard County and the individual cities within it will take care of any tree removal problems that are on public land and areas of an easement. However, a tree in your yard is considered to be on private property. Neither the county nor any of the cities will provide assistance with a tree removal problem. As the homeowner, it’s considered your responsibility to remove the tree. 

Who Is Responsible For Fallen Tree Removal in Howard County?

Our team in Howard County fields calls from homeowners and others in specific situations wondering who the responsible party for a fallen tree is. There are a variety of circumstances, so we put together this section to address the ones that we hear about most often:

If you’re a homeowner?

When you’re the Howard County homeowner, it’s probably your responsibility to remove a fallen tree from your yard. This is because your home and the land are private property. Sometimes, the city or a utility company retains the right to use a small section of land on your property known as an easement. When a tree falls in this area, you can get the city or local utility company to remove it. 

If you’re a renter?

If you’re renting a home in Howard County and take care of mowing the grass, you might wonder if it’s up to you to remove the fallen tree. It isn’t. The homeowner is still responsible for removing a fallen tree, although you do need to let them know about issues such as these. 

If you’re a landlord?

When you’re the landlord, you’re the homeowner too. Even when someone else, such as a renter, lives in your home, you’re still responsible for removing any fallen trees from the yard. 

If you’re a neighbor?

Some pine trees can grow to over 100 feet, and when one of these falls, you may find that part of your neighbor’s tree is in your yard. You’re responsible for removing the section of the tree that’s lying on your property. 

However, you might find out that your neighbor knew the tree needed to be removed and didn’t. This makes them negligent in the care of the tree and liable for damages to your home and property. They’re even responsible for removing the entire tree.

Before you start planning your legal strategy, you might consider talking with your neighbor to see if you can work it out between the two of you. This will help you maintain a friendly relationship. 

How Does the Soil Affect Trees in Howard County?

The soil affects the trees in Howard County. The most common type of soil we see in the area is sassafras soil. This is hearty soil that’s good for growing. It absorbs water quickly and drains it well too. 

Does Weather Affect Tree Health in Howard County?

Yes, the Howard County weather can affect the health of the trees in your yard. The area sees some violent storms in the spring and the fall. Lightning can strike a tree and kill it, or damage it. 

Tornadoes are always a concern during these storms. With high winds, a tornado can damage a tree or move one to another neighborhood. 

The winter weather can bring a hard freeze that deprives your trees of the nutrients and moisture that it needs. This can leave your trees unable to grow again in the spring. You may find one that’s damaged or one that’s died. 

What If Dead Trees Are Near Power Lines in Howard County?

When you see a dead tree that’s on a power line, you need to move away and call emergency services. This is a life-threatening situation. It’s also a dangerous situation when the dead tree is only near a power line. You shouldn’t attempt to remove the tree yourself. It’s a situation where you need to hire a professional like Tree Triage to remove it. 

You need to take responsibility for removing a dead tree near a power line when it’s on your private property and contact us. However, since the dead tree is close to a power line, it’s a possibility that the tree is growing on an easement owned by the power company, and they’ll remove it for you. 

How Much Does Tree Removal Usually Cost in Howard County?

Most homeowners want an answer to this question in the first few minutes of a call. We can’t give you an exact cost until we see the tree. The cost of tree removal in Howard County ranges between $235 and $1,930 with an average of $630. There are a variety of factors that can affect your final cost.

Size of the Tree

When a tree reaches 100 feet, our team needs to take longer to safely remove it. We also need to use additional safety equipment to remove it. When we cut down a tree, we have someone who climbs to the top of the tree and removes it in sections. 

Condition of the Tree

Some trees have areas of decay that might crumble into themselves. When a tree is in bad shape, we have to take additional time and equipment to safely remove it. We don’t want to create an uncontrollable fall. 

Additional Services

Some Howard County homeowners ask for additional services. Our team can remove the stump or run the tree through a wood chipper. You can use the wood chips as mulch around your yard. Another option is to cut the tree into firewood.
