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.  

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.

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.

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 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.

Had to have a tree removed on short notice. They came out, removed the tree and stump, and even dug up the grass and removed a few of the exposed roots as well. Overall great experience!

I would like to praise Max for the fantastic job that was done on the removal of a very difficult tree removal. Within a few inches of the tree was an electrical box, a work shed, a fruit tree and the neighbors fence. He surgically and carefully removed a tree that was covered with a 30 year old vine that went from the bottom to the top of the tree. He did an amazing job! Thank you. He deserves 5 stars.

I had two 30 ft+ Palm Trees that were all dried up to their leaves, so we booked City of Trees for tree and stump removal. The appt was set for 9am and both trees were down by 10:30am. Rodney and his team were legit! The job was done very clean and professional. See before and after picture.

Rusbelt Landscape,specifically Ismael Cortez was very prompt and professional in responding to and acting on my needs. I had 4 large trees that needed either trimmed or removal. Ismael displayed confidence and assurance in getting the job done. I am very happy with the work so far; have to see how my trees respond to the trims..

Kevin gave me a fair price for the work I wanted done, which was to remove a small tree and grind the stump, as well as grind the roots that traveled away from the tree. He did exactly what he told me he was going to do and cleaned up when done. He left the area where the tree was very flat and packed-down. He was professional, polite, and cleaned up when done. He did the work himself with another person helping him clean up as he went. Thanks Kevin!

Dave is very personable and was prompt to respond to my inquiry. He was there when he said he would be and his crew seemed competent. He gave me a quote for $2,000 to remove a giant palm tree, including removing 80% of the stomp, because it was close to one of my structures. I understood that and we agreed to proceed. He removed the tree and did a good job at that. However, he left without removing any of the stump and said we should let it dry over the summer and he would come back in a few weeks to remove it. A year later, after several follow up attempts, I gave up. He never came back and claimed I had said I would remove the wall before he could do it, which I did not say at all. I said I was aware there could be damage to the wall and I would fix it. The lesson learned for me is to never pay someone for the entire job trusting they will come back and finish it later. I recommended him to other people in the neighborhood and I regret it.

Scott was awesome! He underbid 3 other quotes I received by over half. He was on time, did great work, cleaned up the mess afterward. He also scored my stumps so I can put a stump remover on which saved me a lot of money. He is very versed on the trade of brush/tree removal. Am hiring Scott again. Highly recommend.😀

Matthew R.
John is fantastic, quick to respond and offers very reasonable quotes, coming in less expensive than other overly bloated competitors, with high quality work. His crew is professional and passionate about their skilled labor. One property I help manage for the homeowner needed a corral reduced, palm removed, citrus trimmed, privet removed, privet trimmed for roof clearance and a large redwood tree trimmed(Bottom portion). John worked with the homeowner's requests and she was satisfied with the outcome. A standout is John's tree climber, who was fantastic, unfortunately I cannot recall his name at the moment, but he certainly deserves a shout-out. I reccomend calling or sending a text message with photos of your needs to Mercado's Tree Service! Thank you and I look forward to using your services again in the future.

Matthew is very knowledgeable and explains the needs for your trees well. He arrived at the agreed on time, worked diligently, finished the job removing one birch and trimming the other two, cleaned up spotlessly and took it all with him. He is reasonably priced and I would definitely use his service again.
