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.

Reviews for Littleton tree removal services

I couldn’t be happier with my experience with Jimenez Tree Service. The quality of work and the value is amazing. They quoted a price to remove a large tree and grind the stump that beat the 5 or 6 other contractors that only quoted to remove the tree. Not only did I get the tree removed but the stump was ground and all for cheaper than what I was quoted solely for removal. This company is great!

MJ and his team did a fantastic job. He quoted a fair price and was able to get it on the schedule fast. They removed a large tree, ensuring no damage to the near by fence or house. They also removed a few smaller trees. Grinded all stumps, and cleaned up everything when they were done. I’ll definitely be hiring him again for more tree services.

Did a great job and provided me the best deal for tree removal. His team was respectful of the overhead high energy lines that spanned a space just under my 60' walnut... and the tree came down in one day (with no crane needed); plus, now I have some firewood!

They did great work. We were very pleased. They removed the trees and a dead limb on our property. They found another dead re and the limb that we were unaware of. They cleaned up exceptionally well after the items were removed. They were knowledgeable and respectful a pleasure to work with. Would hire again and recommend.

Amadeo responded swiftly to my inquiry for a quote, and drove to my home the same day to look at the 5 trees we needed trimmed. He was able to complete the job a couple of days later and arrived as scheduled, worked hard all day with his brother and did Great work. One tree was very large and mature with several dead branches that needed to be removed. Such a nice team to work with and I highly recommend Adame’s Tree Service! Thanks Amadeo

Great service! Very friendly and quick to respond and schedule the job. They did a great job removing 3 trees in difficult locations (neat fences / cable boxes, etc). They were efficient and cleaned up, even taking branches we left in our yard from last time we trimmed our trees. Great people and great service! Thank you!!

TK and his team came, as scheduled on a day that I thought we would need to postpone. Typical front range weather day no rain, but high winds. Scared me to watch his guy climb up to stage felling a 50' tree. They brought it down without incident and had 90% of it removed and cleaned by the end of the day. Also had them trim a tree in my front yard, can't express how impressive their work was. It looks like a brand new tree. Great guy, amazing team, fair price. Highly recommend Timber Axe

Roger was awesome. Responded right away, came to look at the tree I needed to remove within an hour, came back the next day and completed the work. He and his assistant did an excellent job and cleaned up wonderfully as well. I was a little concerned because another company that gave me an estimate told me I needed to have Xcel energy disconnect a power line directly above the tree I needed removed, and quoted me significantly more than Roger. Roger assured me that it was not an issue and worked around the lines without a problem. I greatly appreciate his hard work! I highly recommend.

Steven and Chris showed up on time and worked hard on the job for most of one day. We just purchased the house and the landscaping had been neglected some so was overdue for some maintenance and care. One tree was too close to the house - less than a foot from the foundation - and was removed. Other trees needed to be pruned away from the house and roof, and some structural pruning done. Several shrubs were way overgrown and needed to be cut back and thinned. A couple were crowding and mis-shaping a mugo pine, so they were removed. They did a lot of work, were efficient, and cleaned up well when they were done. The price was reasonable and we and the plants are pleased with the results.

I received 5 quotes to have my cottonwood removed from 5 different companies. Mike's price was very reasonable and he did a fantastic job. I would highly recommend Mike. My tree came down with no issues, wood was hauled away, and the stump was ground. I couldn't be happier with his professionalism and service. Hire Mike!

I hired Drake and his team to remove a 10ft tree (and stump) in my backyard. They did an excellent job. I was flexible on the time and day they could come over and in return they were able to do the work ahead of schedule. It took them just over an hour using their own tools the area they left is clean and tidy. I think that likely due to his lower overhead costs, Drake's in an excellent situation to tackle these smaller jobs that a normal landscaping company would charge a minimum of $400+ to do. Not to say I wouldn't recommend him for larger jobs as well.
