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.

I needed 3 palm trees trimmed in my front yard. None of the tree trimming companies would take the job because it was "too small a job." Three Brothers came by, gave me a great price & did the job a few days later. Palm trees looking great!

Noah was awesome he arrived at the time he said. He evaluated the situation and his quote was on point. Did a great job trimming my tree. He even helped me take all the branches to curb for pick up by the city. Which they did today. Would use him again to have my other tree done when needed.

What a wonderful couple to work with. Michelle was very prompt at responding, answered all my questions and did the work on the date and time promised. I had 3 very large trees trimmed, 2 tall Sheffleras removed and one dead palm at one rental home and then several trees trimmed at another. They did and excellent job and I will be calling them again soon for additional work. I also liked that they were prepared with copies of their license and insurance which is important to me to only hire licensed companies. I would highly recommend them

Noah trimmed and cleaned up my large, out of control oak tree. I am very pleased with the way he did the job, and my property was left immaculate! Noah and his assistant were very pleasant gentlemen to deal with.

From arrival to departure, Mr. Mann did an outstanding job, and accomplished everything he said that he would do. My fully mature 20 plus year old mango tree was in desperate need of a trim to keep it in good health as well as reducing electrical/fire hazards for power lines going through it into 2 different houses. Tree is now in an excellent state, and the power lines are free and not brushing up against the tree anymore. Also, I can now walk freely under and around the tree without worrying about hitting my head on any lower branches. The tree looks so much better, and I have so much less worry with regard to the power lines. Thank you very kindly, and congratulations on a job well done.

Noah arrived on time, and trimmed an old avocado tree. It needed topping off. He also removed dead branches, trimmed sides and bottom. When he was done, my yard looked neat - everything had been removed. He also removed several fronds of a neighbors coconut palm that were endangering my roof. Thank you, Noah, for the great job. The cost of reasonable. I will definitely recommend you to friends.

He pruned/trimmed 20 tall palm trees, 1 large green tree, and two way over grown hedges! He did an excellent job, and cleaned up the debris thoroughly. He and his workers were very professional and polite. I will hire him again, and have already referred him to one of my client. Overall Excellent Service!

They got here on time. Nice group. Picked upeverything well. Did not trim the queen palms well left the bottoms on that are now falling off. when they trimme the neighbor palm, i did not want a hurricane cut. It got it before i got the. They were unable to get into the top of the Washingtonions and left a lot of seed pods.I asked that they not spike my trees and they did not, but said they needed to to get to the tops. I wish them well, but they need to turn down jobs too tall for them.Michelle Leonhart
