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.

Adame's Tree Service was quick to respond to my request for a quote, stopped by my house the same day for an estimate, and scheduled my tree trim within 3 business days. They did a fantastic job with trimming and cleanup, and my tree looks so much healthier!

Tom who owns the company did the tree removal and trimming. He had a helper who cleaned up everything that was taken down. Such a great job by both the removal of the trees, the trimming and the clean up. We are recommending them to our neighbors.

I'd recommend Mike and his crew for tree trimming. I had requested a quote for my main tree, and Mike provided that as well a quotes on three other trees that were on my to-do list. The price was good for all four and they look great. The work was done promptly and my yards cleaned up afterwards. Email communication was a bit rough, but this does not detract from the overall job performance.

Leaf Life is the best trimming service I've ever used. Not only were their prices fair and competitive, they came to my property three separate times to ensure the large maple in my front yard would be ready for the Colorado summer. They are very straightforward and easy to reach, which, in my experience, is a difficult trait to find in a tree trimming service.

I did not end up getting work done on my trees, deciding instead to wait another year. Part of that was the excellent job done during the estimate phase, where I wasn't just given a number but instead overall thoughts and details. I'll be going with this service in the future when I do need to get my trees trimmed.

Derek ODonnell did an excellent job trimming my trees! He pruned ive of my trees and he removed enough of the branches so that I will not have to trim them again for several years. It was a big job but he worked quickly, and completed the job at the promised time. He is very professional and very punctual. He explained thoroughly how he would prune the trees. He follows through and does the work exactly as described. He answered all of my questions and if I emailed him more questions he responded promptly. Derek has a pleasant personality and is very easy to talk to. He is a all around nice guy and a hard worker.

Warren is a wonderful person. Trimmed the trees and bushes very well. Made sure everything was cleaned up. It took him two hours to go get his equipment which was a frustration but once here we were quite pleased.

We are very satisfied with the work Madeo and his crew did to trim our trees! First of all, he showed up on time both for the estimate and the job. His price was considerably lower than the other 2 estimates we received. He trimmed each tree as we had discussed during the estimate and even advised that a branch on our elm which had no leaves was actually still green, so we opted to not cut it. They did a fantastic job and cleaned up all the branches cut. I highly recommend them and will absolutely hire them again!

Drake trimmed all my trees and also hauled away a big pile of old branches that I had trimmed previously. He was polite and hardworking and did a great job, and he cleaned and swept up leaves and twigs left behind when he was done and hauled it all away. His price was very reasonable and much cheaper than others. I would recommend him to anyone.

Alex responded promptly and kept me updated of a minor delay. He was very courteous and listened to my needs, got the job done and cleaned up yard. It was a smaller job to trim 2 trees back from house so he was the only worker. I did ask for few more limbs to be cut which he accommodated with no problem. Pricing was reasonable.
