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.

Extremely satisfied with the way these guys trimmed the palm tree. They cleaned it so well that one could hardly guess that a tree had been cut down.

We used Angele's Tree Service to trim over 10 tress/bushes and remove 4 trees in my back/front yard. I would highly recommend them and us them again in the future. Juan and his crew were extremely professional and accommodating to our request. A piece of our fence broke during tree trimming and Luis took personal ownership of the damage. Luis went to Home Depot and bought the pieces to fix the fence. The fence looks great and it was fixed at their expense. This is the best/nicest team I have hired to trim by trees.

Kevin and the team did an excellent job today! They trimmed our palm trees, redwood and pine trees as well. They also took care of some other trees in the side yard. We were blown away with their professionalism. They also cleaned the area afterwards. Would definitely hire them again.

I had 1 large tree to prune around and then I added many other tree trimming tasks once Juan was here. Juan was really good at taking time to understand exactly how I wanted the trees trimmed and pruned. Once that's done he worked very efficiently and fast. He did exactly what I asked for and his price was very competitive. Even when I kept adding small stuff at the end, he never complained. Juan and his helper were great at cleaning up at the end. I think Juan went above and beyond in delivering the work that I asked him to do, he even advised me about the impact on the trees if we trim in certain ways. I'm very happy with the service that this company provided me! I will call Juan next year when the trees need pruning again.

Juan and his team came out on short notice, offered a great quote and went above and beyond on the large tree trimming as well as the stump removal (many of them). I couldn't be happier with the quality. My tree is well groomed and my yard looks much much better. In fact, Juan may have even saved my car from getting squashed by a huge branch. While trimming the tree, they noticed a large split in the branch which normally hangs over the car. They cut the branch potentially avoiding an insurance claim.

I have a 40 foot Washington Palm in my backyard that has finally grown too tall for me to trim by myself. The dead fronds on the bottom of the tree need to be regularly trimmed or else you risk fire, rodents or hurting someone with the falling fronds. So, this was when I contacted Emerald View Tree Service to get an estimate. Edgar immediately got back to me and requested to come over to take a look and give an accurate estimate. We discussed three options including trimming the lower fronds, trimming lower and upper fronds and finally cutting down the tree. Each had its own price and they were very very reasonable because I compared with prices from other vendors. Finally, I decided to trim lower and upper fronds. Edgar and his dad Abel came right on the time the next day and took care of trimming in two hours. They cut down a TON of dead fronds and hauled everything away. They were so efficient as a team. They also brought this beautiful truck to help them with the work. I was very impressed with this family business and I will for sure hire them again in the future for the next trimming.

Our experience with Rodolfo was wonderful! He was very responsive and came to our house as agreed upon for the estimate. On the day of the tree trimming, he was very knowledgeable on how to shape the tree and we are happy with the final look. They came on time and cleaned up the area after, it looks better than when they found it. Our family is impressed and would recommend him. Thank you!

Jose stoped by the house for pine tree trimming. Initially, he said he can do it with his two staffs. During middle of working, he asked adding two more staffs with double pay. I've ignored his request. Then, he has cut small ded branches only.
