Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What’s the best way to set up a consultation or an appointment with a landscaper or lawn care professional during the COVID-19 pandemic?

To set up an appointment or consultation call with a lawn care professional or landscaper during the COVID-19 pandemic, take advantage of digital technologies to avoid face-to-face exposure. When searching for lawn mowing, landscaping and lawn care companies online, ask if they’ll do a video call to assess the job and give you an estimate. You can also go over strategies for completing the job and conducting virtual payments to stay safe.

How can I find out if a landscaper or lawn care professional is considered an essential COVID-19 service provider?

To consult national guidelines on essential COVID-19 service providers and see whether a lawn care professional qualifies, visit a page on CISA’s website called Identifying Critical Infrastructure During COVID-19. This website contains 16 categories of critical infrastructure sectors that you can search through. However, not all jurisdictions follow CISA’s definitions of critical infrastructure so you should also check your city or state’s government website.  

Does a landscaper or lawn care professional need to enter my home?

Because landscaping and lawn maintenance take place outdoors, it is unlikely that these professionals will need to enter your home.

To stay safe during the COVID-19 pandemic, practice social distancing at all times -- even with professionals doing work outside. You can minimize exposure during a consultation by using a video chat service. And when you pay, you can use a digital payment service like PayPal. Discuss strategies with any lawn mowing, landscaping, tree trimming and lawn care companies you may be considering.

Can I use digital payments to pay for outdoor landscaping and design, lawn mowing, tree trimming and other similar services?

Many outdoor landscaping and design, lawn mowing and tree trimming companies will likely accept some form of digital payment instead of cash or check. The COVID-19 pandemic will likely causing more businesses to adopt digital platforms like Zelle, PayPal, Venmo, Square Cash and Google Pay.

Search professionals’ online profiles to see if they list digital payment services, and ask them about their payment policies during a consultation call.

Do landscapers or lawn care professionals offer remote or virtual services?

Landscapers and lawn care professionals generally do not offer remote or virtual services. But if you come across a profile that states the landscaper is offering remote services, it’s best to contact them to see what type of remote work is offered. 

Typically, lawn care and landscaping professionals can perform many of their duties without coming into physical contact with clients. Message local lawn mowing, landscaping, tree trimming, and lawn care companies near you to schedule a video call and inquire about remote services.

How much does it cost to trim a tree?

The national price range for tree trimming is $270-$450. 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 remove a tree stump?

Once you have a tree cut down, you’ll probably want to remove the tree stump as well. You may want the stump removed for aesthetics, the tree stump could be diseased, you might want to prevent regrowth, or you may find the roots are causing problems and need to be removed. Tree removal costs don’t always include the cost to grind out or dig out a tree stump after the tree has been felled and the trunk removed. The national average cost for stump removal ranges from $150 to $200. There are two main methods for dealing with tree stumps. In grinding, pros use a chipping machine to grind away the above-level tree stump until it sits just below the soil surface. Tree stump removal entails lifting the entire root ball of a tree out of the soil. Removing the stump will leave a hole in the ground and also take more time, labor and money than stump grinding. Here are some examples of average tree stump removal costs:

  • Stump grinding: $2-$4 per inch.
  • Tree stump removal: average of $60-$350.

The final price will depend on the stump’s size, condition, location and condition of the soil around it.

How much does it cost to cut down a massive tree?

If you have to remove a big, beautiful tree from your property, you’ll definitely need an arborist. Cutting down a massive tree without the proper tools or training can lead to major property damage or injury. A huge tree may need to be removed if it is diseased or dying and poses a safety risk, has suffered a blow from a storm and isn’t safe, or is growing into your home, your home’s foundation, your septic system, or your power lines. Removal costs for such large trees will depend on the tree’s height, diameter, and relative safety and accessibility, as well as whether you also need the felled tree and stump removed. The bare minimum for removal of a tree over 75 or 80 feet would be $1,000. This may not include tree quartering and removal or stump grinding. Stump grinding ranges on average from $2 to $4 per inch of the stump’s diameter. There is no set price as each situation is unique, so it’s always best to have an arborist give you a quote and detail exactly which services are included in the price.

Gave me a quote and came out promptly to cut down 4 cypress trees. Cleaned up everything and left it better than it looked before. If you need someone to trim/ cut trees, look no further.

The experience was great and with 2 trees removed and another dozen trimmed way back, the 3 men had it done in 3 hours and cleaned up after themselves.

Great service and very competitive price. Had 1 tree removed and 4 others trimmed. They did an amazing job and left the yard spotless. Neighbors saw the work they did and will also hire them. Thanks!

Superb! Kevin (owner) is very pleasant, friendly, and easy to work with. He did major trimming on a Mulberry and an Oak tree. He also did major tree trimming on a long driveway (private road). He and his two helpers showed up exactly on time, worked quickly and efficiently, and cleaned up everything. These men were masters at space management--that means cramming what looked like a dump-truck size load of limbs and debris into the back of a full-size pickup. I would definitely hire again. And yes, his price was very reasonable for all the hard work they did.

Rodney was quick to respond my request for a quote. He provided an estimate within a couple of days and scheduled the job within the week. Rodney and his team cut down two trees and trimmed back 3 others that were really overgrown. They did a fantastic job and left my backyard looking better than it did when they arrived! Overall City of Trees did a fanatic job for a reasonable price. I have a very large tree in my front yard that needs weight reduction and I will be hiring Rodney for that job as well.

Kevin and his partner came out right away and removed 2 trees, trimmed back several more and did a complete yard cleanup. They were far and away the most competitive price wise and they did a wonderful job! We're very happy and will use again.

I called, Kevin came and gave us a reasonable quote. Kevin and his crew started the job as agreed. Trimming trees is a mess job. I love the fact that Kevin and his crew cleaned up behind themselves, you would have not known that they were here, except for the magnificent job they did cutting back all the trees. Now that the rain has started, we don't have to worry about the leaves and debris clogging our drains. Thank you for a clean job.

You can't go wrong with this company. Very fast response time in terms of any questions I had. They did a great job trimming my trees. They were conscientious about surrounding landscape and did a excellent job cleaning up. Angel even found my pool net and skimmed the pool of fallen debris. We will definitely be using them again. Thanks Daisy and Angel!
