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.

The tree trimming on our 4 trees (plus a pine tree that had several branches on the garage, at no extra cost) that Jesse Brennan trimmed was accomplished quickly and efficiently, at a very reasonable price. We highly recommend Brennan for tree trimming.

Roger and his crew trimmed 3 large trees and removed the 4th large tree. It was extremely hot but they all worked very hard. They cleaned up after they were done. Roger's price was good considering all they did.

Sheldon did a great job trimming two very large trees (40-50ft) in our backyard. The previous homeowners had let the trees get overgrown and parts were dying. Sheldon did an excellent job trimming out the dead areas and cleaning up both trees so they will grow to be healthier and we won’t have issues this winter with heavy limbs. Sheldon communicated well and did an excellent job cleaning up the yard. He was very fairly priced and the end result is worth it!

Mario was quick to respond to any questions that I had as well as quick to come over and give us an estimate. They did a great job trimming our trees and bushes and cleaned up all debris. I would recommend them for any job big or small.

If I could give Gabriel and Solomon 10 stars, I would. We wanted a very tall maple tree cut down immediately. Within an hour of putting our information into Thumbtack in the evening, Gabriel called and said he could come by for an estimate at 8:00 am the next day. The estimate was very reasonable. We hired him on the spot because he said he could come very early in the morning the very next day to do the job. They cut the tree down expertly. They landed it perfectly so that nothing in our very small yard was even touched, nor was a neighbor's truck that was parked very close by. Their clean-up was superb. When they left, a neighbor came over and I had to show her where the tree had been because there was no stump remaining at all. The tree had started to lose leaves. They cleaned up thoroughly the many, many that fell as well as every last branch and twig. Gabriel and Solomon are very professional. We felt a high level of trust with them immediately. We highly recommend Gabriel and Solomon and will certainly call them if we have need for any other tree trimming or tree removal.

Pro-line did a fantastic job for me. I had a couple of trees removed and several shrubs trimmed prior to putting my home on the market. They were able to work with my timeline, had the most reasonable price, were very professional and the results were exactly what I needed. I would highly recommend this company without any hesitation if you are looking for a professional landscape company.
