Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to trim a tree?

The national price range for tree trimming ranges anywhere from $75-$1,000. Tree trimming is often done by a professional arborist who is trained to safely trim and prune trees for both the health of the tree and the safety of the residents and their property. Trying to do your own tree trimming is not advisable unless you have the proper know-how. Tree trimming companies may charge an hourly rate for their services. The hourly rate may be higher or lower for different trees to reflect the relative safety measures, skill, equipment or people power needed to handle the job. For this reason, most tree services provide free estimates.

One example of an hourly rate for professional tree trimming services is $150 per hour. Costs may be under $100 or could be higher than $300 per hour, depending on variables such as proximity to buildings, health of the tree, height and diameter of the tree, and type of tree trimming desired. Geography and regional cost of living and regional costs to do business will also play a role in your tree removal costs.

How much does it cost to cut a tree down?

When you’re ready to have a tree on your property come down, it’s time to call an arborist. The national average price range for tree-trimming costs is $270-$450. Tree removal costs can vary based on the height, diameter, location and health of the tree, and on whether you want to remove the stump. Height plays a major role in tree removal costs. Small trees, no more than 30 feet tall, are usually thinner in diameter and easier and safer for an arborist to manage. Removal of a small tree can cost anywhere from under $150 to over $450. Removal of medium-height trees, from 30 feet to 60 feet tall, could cost anywhere between $150 and $850 or more. Tall trees, typically 60 feet to 80 feet tall, may start at $500 or cost more than $1,000 to cut down. As the height and diameter increase, so does the cost.

Location is critical, too. Removing a tree in an open space is quicker and presents fewer obstacles than removing a tree that is growing flush to your house. Arborists can assess your tree and provide you with quotes based on the variables involved. For example, removing a medium-size hackberry tree that was growing too close to a home — the roots were damaging the home’s foundation — cost $1,500. This price included rope-down, house protection, tree quartering and stacking, and stump removal.

How much does it cost to remove a fallen tree?

If you need to have a tree cut down, have you planned what will happen next? Arborists often charge an additional fee to quarter and remove the fallen tree from your property, so anticipate this as part of your tree removal costs. You can elect to have the wood cut for use in your fireplace, or you may prefer to have it hauled away completely.

Tree removal costs may vary based on the height and the width of the felled tree. Size affects the labor required for removal, which will be reflected in the cost. For example, a tree service company may charge an additional $100-$120 to haul away the pieces of a felled tree. The service may cost as little as $75 in some regions and more than $150 in others. Regional labor rates, the cost of living and the cost to do business in your area will be reflected in your tree removal cost.

What is tree trimming vs. tree pruning?

The difference between tree trimming and tree pruning comes down to the intention and strategy in the two methods. Pruning often refers to the removal of branches deemed unnecessary or hazardous, and this process helps stimulate growth. Tree trimming focuses on removing overgrown branches. But this process can also help the tree receive more moisture and light. 

A professional might recommend pruning and trimming at different times of year to stimulate growth or leverage the tree’s dormant period to slow new sprouting.

If a neighbor's tree falls on my property, who is responsible for removal?

The rules for liability when a neighbor's tree falls on your property may depend on the unique details of the situation. A common outcome is that the homeowner pays for the damage and removal. Homeowners insurance may cover a tree that fell into your yard from a wind storm. Check your local laws and insurance policy to find out.

How do you remove roots after tree removal?

Getting rid of tree roots can be tricky. There are methods for getting roots out yourself, but the labor involved will take several hours and is quite intensive. For this reason, it’s best to hire a pro to remove stumps and roots. 

What do tree removal companies do with the wood?

Downed trees can have a number of different end destinations. The tree removal company may use it as firewood to sell to customers, or they may send it through a wood chipper to turn it into mulch. The tree may also wind up in a green landfill or biomass power plant. Alternatively, it could go to a lumber or chip mill. 

What are the advantages of cutting trees?

There are several advantages to responsible tree cutting. As trees age and stop producing seeds, cutting them down can prevent them from falling on valuable property like homes and cars. Additionally, cutting trees allows more sunlight to reach smaller trees below, giving them the opportunity to grow. And pruning your trees can help promote growth.

Who is responsible for cutting overhanging tree branches?

You should check your local laws to determine who is responsible for cutting overhanging tree branches on your property. If possible, make an agreement with your neighbor(s) on who is responsible to trim back tree branches that cross property lines.

Angle did a super job in removing a large Eucalyptus tree. He was very responsive to text messages and started and finished the job when promised. He removed the tree with no damage to surrounding area and cleaned up the area to better condition than when he startled. I would highly recommend Angle for any tree removal service.

TreeDaddy recently trimmed a 40 foot Sissoo tree in my front yard. The tree had been previously trimmed but the company did not do the best job. They also removed a dead Queen Palm in the front yard as well. The guys did an awesome job trimming up the Sissoo. The were able to leave the shade of the tree intact but were able to take the height up and thin the tree out a bit. It looks amazing! I am also very impressed with the removal of the Queen Palm. The tree had been there for 20 years and now you cannot even tell a tree was present! It was neat, clean and perfect. I would absolutely hire TreeDaddy for any of my trimming and tree needs in the future!

Green Earth Trees are a very professional family owned company. Jon and his brother just came out to remove 2 trees from our backyard and they did an EXCELLENT job!!! Removed all debris and even stacked the bricks we had around the trees. They even asked my wife, (who was the only one home at the time), if we wanted a cactus removed as well. If I was here and saw their work I would of said FOR SURE! lol. These guys are very professional and really good at their job. HIGHLY recommended!! A thousand stars!

Contacted them and met with Sam at the appointed time. As this was a rental home, he performed the tree removal and worked around the tenant's schedule. Would definitely call him in the future. You can't even tell the huge Eucalyptus tree was there!

Travis came out and removed two palm trees for me. He did an amazing job. He was very professional, accommodating, and the communication was great. He left with all of the debris, which has been an issue I have encountered with other companies I have hired for yard / tree services. I can't wait to get more trees so I can experience his great customer service in the future.

I had Angel and another employee come out to clean up some very large and tall trees on my property among other things. Some of the trees were hanging over the top of my home and other bushes that were overgrown. They cleaned up 7 large trees, removed dead ones, cleaned up an area against my back wall that was tremendously overgrown, removed a mesquite tree I wanted gone, and removed a series of bushes. They did such a great job! Angel and communicated throughout as he wanted to ensure what they were doing was to my specifications. He also communicated why they were doing certain things, so the consultative part was an added bonus. A job of this size you can imagine there was a ton of debris. They cleaned it all up beautifully. Another thing I wanted to mention is they took great care when trimming my citrus trees and were also very careful of my newly planted winter grass, which I appreciated. I would definitely hire them again in the future and even plan on hiring him for continued maintenance of my yards.
