Ever wondered how much that tree growing in your backyard or lawn weighs?
The short answer is: A LOT!
According to Temporary Repair, “An 80 foot hardwood tree with a 24” diameter has a weight that can exceed 20,000 pounds. A 50-foot pine tree with a 12” diameter has a weight of more than 2000 pounds. These algorithms calculate the total weight of a tree including root. Full size hardwoods can exceed 50 tons.Sep 20, 2013.”
That’s why keeping your trees healthy is a good deal less expensive than removing them.
