Plano, Texas is a city located within Collin County. The city was named in the 2010 census as the ninth most populous city in the State of Texas. It is home to many corporate headquarters such as Frito-Lay, Pizza Hut, Dell Services, JC Penney and the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, to name only a few.
Plano was designated the best place to live in the Western United States in 2005, 2006, and 2011 by the CNN Money Magazine and by the United States Census Bureau in 2008 as the wealthiest city with a population greater than 250,000. Forbes Magazine also named the City in 2010 as the safest city to live in America with a population greater than 250,000.
Really big trees are a rarity in Plano, because the land now known as Plano used to be a grassland before it was settled – subject to wildfires and buffalo grazing. The activities before and after settlement made it difficult for trees to grow naturally. Big trees are, therefore, important assets to the city. It takes a lifetime to replace them once they are removed.
The city of Plano has taken great measures to preserve their trees. They even have Big Tree Maps, which show the largest tree of any species at their parks (like Arrowhead, Glen Meadows Park, and Bob Woodruff Park which has a 500 year old tree that resides there). There is even a Metroplex Champion tree found at Haggard Park, which is the pride of Plano – an Overcup Oak which is 106 inches in circumference and as tall as 45 feet.
We at DFWTreeremoval.com understand the importance of trees and how much they have to be protected as much as possible. That is why we offer tree maintenance services such as tree trimming and pruning, tree replanting, and of course tree removal for those trees that unfortunately have to be removed if there is no other course of action available.
The City of Plano has a City Code that States:
“Trees overhanging streets and alleys can cause damage to large vehicles like emergency equipment, delivery trucks and school buses. Low tree branches can make it difficult to walk along sidewalks or to see around corners when driving. For these reasons there are height requirements to keep in mind when planting and maintaining landscapes. Trees along streets and alleys must be trimmed to above 14 feet over these surfaces. In addition, branches of trees and bushes planted along alleys must be trimmed one foot back from the concrete surface, into the easement. Trees overhanging sidewalks must be trimmed to above seven feet over the concrete surface. Bushes planted along sidewalks should be kept flush with the pavement. It is important that trees and bushes planted at intersections, alley entrances and in public right of ways, be trimmed so that foliage does not block the view between 2 1/2 feet and 9 feet above street grade”.
