Dangers of Removing Tall Trees

Sometimes trees need to be trimmed, and sometimes they need to be taken down, but sometimes this is easier said than done. The taller the tree is, the harder it will be to bring down. At Hagan and Sons, we’ve trimmed and taken down trees all across Maryland of many different sizes, and wanted to highlight a few reasons why removing taller trees can be so dangerous.

They Have Longer to Fall

When falling a tree, the most important consideration to make is positioning where the tree will fall. When the tree comes down, you don’t want it to hit anything of value, this usually means avoiding structures. With a taller tree, this process is made more difficult, as the tree will fall further.

More Problems With Power Lines

Trying to trim or remove a tree around power lines is difficult no matter its size, but with a tall tree, the danger is nearly doubled. Taller trees have more force when they fall, and have a higher circumference potential when they fall. This is a job for only the most experienced Maryland tree removal companies.

Taller Trees Usually Mean Bigger Branches

While this certainly doesn’t apply to all species of trees native to Maryland, it does apply with most. The taller the tree is, typically the older and bigger it is, which in turn means its branches are likely pretty big. With some taller trees, each branch can be the size of a small tree, which makes trimming them off all the more dangerous.
