Arisel is extremely professional and friendly. He responds quickly to inquiries, and showed up with the right tools for the job. I had an unconventional request - trimming down some tree stumps, but he patiently waited while I made measurements and markings, and then went to work with the chainsaw. Highly recommended.

Do yourself a favor & hire Jon. We recently moved to a house with a massively overgrown tree. Jon & his team tackled the project in a few short hours and got rid of the problem tree, cleared our rain gutters & cleaned up all the debris from the work. They were punctual & professional, showed up on time & quickly worked to throughout the project. From start to finish I couldn't have asked for more & they were extremely competitive in pricing. I would definitely recommend Jon to friends & family needing tree removal or gutter cleaning services.

Vin was very professional and easy to work with. He provided excellent lawn mowing and weed removing services on a short notice. He worked very hard on my sloped backyard for three hours without breaks. It is a reflection of his hard work. He went above and beyond my exceptions. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs yard work.

Marceliano was fabulous to work with. He was timely, gave me a fair bid, and brought a very professional work crew with him to complete my job, which included trimming, shaping, and removing trees, while preserving my established garden. He was thorough, and left my property in great shape, cleaning up and removing all debris. I would highly recommend him.

Chopping down tall trees cleaning behind my shed removal of waste. This was a very big job David came over and gave me an estimate very reasonable price. We discussed a date and time for him to come over and remove the shrubs, he works hard and efficiently I really appreciate all his work. We also discussed him coming back on a monthly basis.

Vyron was the most responsive contractor we had, originally unsure if we were going to use him for just the demo or the demo + remodel, and he was diligent and professional the entire time. Vyron removed around 300 sq ft of tile and he laid new tiles for us. Our floor was on a cement base (uneven) which he evened out for us as well. They were on time, cognizant our my dogs when they came in and out of the gate, and even recommended the pattern which we LOVE! I highly recommend him and offered to be a reference as well. Thanks Vyron!

Great one-time yardwork experience — they were thorough, and went the extra mile, e.g. pointing out a tree in my yard that had died, and offering to remove it (at a very fair fee). I'm continuing to use their yardwork service, and have been very satisfied thus far.

Jean and his crew at West Valley Tree Care did a fantastic job on my trees. I had several trees that needed to be shaped, including a 30+ ft Chinese Pepper ("Pistachio") tree. The trees look beautiful and there's now sunlight in my backyard. Jean listened carefully to meet my needs, he and his team executed the job perfectly and neatly, they were a pleasure to work with, and the price was great. I highly recommend West Valley Tree Care.

Bin and his team were professional, nice, and did a good job. We had a tree fall into a fence we shared with a neighbor and we're having a hard time finding someone to take care of it quickly. I decided to try thumbtack to help connect me with someone to help. Bin responded to my query within minutes and came same day to review and give me an estimate. His team was able to fix our fence and remove our tree within a couple days notice. He also was kind enough to fix an unrelated broken gate hinge and remove all the leaves from the tree in our yard as well. The entire crew was professional and polite. I'm am pleased with the service and will call them back again when we need help in our yard in the future.

Ramirez Landscaping was absolutely great! Jose responded within minutes of my request. He visited the next day to provide a quote. After we agreed on pricing, he returned the following day with his crew and completed the tree trimming in one day (despite it being the hottest day of the year). They completed everything I asked and more. Were polite, friendly, on-time, quick, and very clean. I highly recommend them for tree trimming and yard maintenance.

Ricardo and Jose did a great job cleaning up the front of property by removing unwanted sod and adding red mulch to give a pop of color! They also cleaned up 20 pom pom trees and made them nice and round again. Weeding was done around the property and we are now planning on what to do in Phase 2 of shrub clean up, updating rock mulch and tree stump removal.

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 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.

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.
