Harris Co. spending $2 million on tree removal
City of Houston spending $4.5 million to do the same

The dead trees are seen as kindling, a key reason why the court kept some form of a burn ban in place since April. To read more on this story, head to The Houston Chronicle's website: http://www.chron.com/news/houston-texas/article/Harris-County-spending-2-million-to-remove-3052820.php
