Highly recommend Domingo's services. Not only does he work quickly (and quietly), he squeezed me in on a Sunday during a very busy Holiday week. I will definitely hire him in the future and recommend him to others who need tree trimming and yard service.

Arnulfo is amazing. He was on time or early for both the estimate and the tree removal. He and his team were extremely careful, taking great pains to make sure there was no damage to our home while removing the tree and stump. During every step of the removal he checked with me make sure I approved of what he was doing. While removing the stump, he found some concrete that the tree had grown around, which he removed after carefully making sure it wasn't structural. He then found an old pipe which he removed, again after checking to make sure it wasn't still in use. The best review I can give him is to say I will absolutely use him again for other jobs. Great experience with his work.

If I could give more than 5 starts I would. Working with Carlos really was a great experience. Not only the price he quoted us for “huge” tree removal was fair, he went above and beyond. He was very communicative at every step of the project. Him and his crew were polite, punctual and professional. We added some work to the on going project and Carlos work it out. I was not on site all the time but I felt completely at ease and the end result show a work of quality. We are super happy and will certainly stay in touch with Carlos for future work. We highly recommend Carlos and his team for small or large tree landscape work.

Efren is a true professional, the quality of his work is first rate. I had him put in some automatic sprinkler valves and a new timer and lastly finish things up with a little tree trimming. When he was complete, the property looked great. You couldn’t even tell that he did so much work. He made sure to clean up and put everything back in its place. Thanks for a job well done Efren, I will certainly be calling you for some more work when I get ready to have it done.

We are very happy with the work that Vera's tree trimming did removing two trees. Both trees were in awkward locations (close to walls/corner) but this caused no issue. The trees and stumps were removed and we were delighted at how clean our garden was left after the removal.

Owner came out to see huge broken limb, explained carefully what they would do to remove it without further damage. Showed some photos of trimming work they had done that looked very good. Although he could have tried to get me to do additional trimming of this large Cedar tree, he said that should wait until winter to avoid stressing the tree. Explained how they trim to avoid unnecessary stress. Was courteous, on time, cleaned up the area very well. Their price was very good. I would definitely recommend this firm for trimming or removal of trees. Don Colgan

Abraham and his crew were terrific! He gave me a very reasonable quote and did a quality job on an oak tree. He helped educate me about how very sensitive this tree is to heavy pruning and ensured the health of the tree. I will be using him again and have already recommended him to others.

I needed two large, 40+ foot trees trimmed. Hector Ramos gave me a competitive bid. Hector and his large crew came by Saturday morning and had the job completed by the afternoon. The crew was quick. The tree in our front yard was trimmed back just the way we requested. Thinned out and perfectly round. Hector said it would like nice and it did. Tree in our backyard needed trimming on one side as it was hanging over our house. The crew trimmed all of the tree over our house and made sure the limbs did no damage to the roof. Clean-up was excellent with all debris and leaves removed. I highly recommend Hector and his crew. Great price, quick service, and quality is top notch. I will use Hector for all my tree trimming and now have my go-to tree guy.

I am very satisfied with Perfection Tree service. I had 3 large Eucalyptus trees that were over grown and needed to be thinned out. Michael and his crew thinned them out and left them beautiful. I am very happy with the way they look now. So I recommend this company to everyone. Thanks again Michael and Perfection Tree Specialist for doing such a great job.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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.

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 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.
