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.

Tyler and his crew showed up exactly when promised and trimmed my palm trees just the way I wanted them trimmed. They then cleaned up all debris and blew off our pool deck even the areas not affected by the trimming. I'd highly recommend their service based on my experience!!!

Tyler, with Precision Cuts, came to my home today to take down a dangerous hanging limb that came down after last weekends storms. His professionalism, and work ethic is spot on. I would highly recommend him and his company for any tree trimming or tree removal that you would need. Five star rating!

Had a couple of hiccups in scheduling but overall Tyler and his team did a great job! For the work it was absolutely a great value. He showed up promptly for my estimate and his guys did a great job trimming and cleaning up the yard. The best part about Precision Cuts is that Tyler listened to what I wanted done. I just wanted my trees trimmed conservatively to prevent storm damage, but still allowing pecan fruiting in the fall. They touched up my orange tree and some other small trees as well. Overall a great experience! I’ll definitely be using them again next year!

Andre was excellent. The palm tree was probably overdue for a trim, but he handled everything like a true professional. It looks beautiful now and we will definitely have him back to keep it looking that way. Great job.

Found J&K through Thumbtack and asked for estimate to trim two large Oak Trees. John was very prompt and professional in all our correspondence as well as in person. Within a week he was here trimming both trees. I'd say that I was a bit particular in what I wanted trimmed and what I didn't - especially when it came bird / squirrel nests. John made to sure to check in with me throughout the day and was very easy to work with. They picked up all debris and raked the area when finished. Overall both John and Kyle did an excellent job and I was very satisfied with their work. I would definitely rehire them if needed in the future and would also recommend their services.

We contacted S&S Tree Service asking for a quote to remove one tree and have another trimmed. They responded to our inquiry within minutes and came out to look at the trees and provide their quote all in the same day. Their quote came in much lower than other companies but we didn't sacrifice an ounce of service. They were on time, thorough, and explained the process every step of the way. Were happy with the end result and I will definitely recommend their services to others.

These guys are great. On time, did an excellent job, made sure I was satisfied with the results before they gave up, cleaned up all the trimmings and palm fronds, raked the yard, used a blower on the driveway and sidewalk, and took all the trash away. Friendly, personable, first rate. I will definitely hire them again whenever I need some trees or palms trimmed up. And at a great price!!!

Beyond doing a terrific job trimming my tree, they raked my yard so not even a leaf was left behind. Absolutely fantastic job and my neighbors are still talking of the transformation. Tony and his sons are courteous and responsive. I’d hire them again in a heartbeat.

There are not enough words to express how impressed I am with Tony and his crew. It has been a very long time since I have come across such a professional and courteous crew. Tony will be coming back in May to trim up a couple more trees for me once they leaf out - I would hire him in an instant.

Tyler and his crew did a fantastic job in trimming my very tall, way over grown palm tree fronds. I was impressed with the professionalism and quality of their work with this difficult job. The clean up was also impressive. It’s like they were never there. Tyler was quick with his response and openly communicated (which I greatly appreciated). Tyler was also punctual and respectful of my time. Thank you to Tyler and his crew! My trees look so much healthier & happier! I highly recommend Precision Cuts. 🌴🌴🌴

It was a pleasure doing business with Tyler. He was quick to respond whenever I reached out to him and exceptionally patient while I worked through what the actual scope of the job would be. The cost of the job was fair for the amount of work he and his crew did. They arrived onsite when they said they would and quickly got to work. All of the guys were respectful toward me and of my property, which is a huge plus in my opinion. And they did an outstanding job of cleaning up the property before leaving. They removed a total of 9 trees, ground the stumps, and trimmed 5 other trees in 6 hours. A great group of guys that work very well together as a team.

My experience was very poor. Although they arrived right on time to give an estimate, that's the only thing they delivered on. They quoted me a price which I thought was pretty expensive but to quote the esitimator, "this is the price if you want the tree down before the storm". So, I agreed. The day they were supposed to show up, they didn't. When I texted them, they said they were on another job and would have to do my tree the follow morning. They still didn't show up. When I texted them again, they said I didn't respond to their last response to me so they figured they didn't need to come out. When they said they would have to come out the following morning, I assumed i didn't need to respond. So, I'm stuck with a tree that's threatening a structure in my yard although I've tried trimming as much as possible. Fingers crossed. This is the text conversation: [me]This is Phil. Just checking to see when you might get here [Precision Cuts]Doing a job now. As soon as I get done with this one, I'm heading your way. [me]Thanks Later in the day [me]How is it looking? Even later in the day [me]Can I hear from you? [Precision Cuts]Im still on this other job... I'm trying to get there or get one of my crews there. We can do it tomorrow ... The following morning [me]How's it looking? Two hours later [Precsion Cuts]You never wrote back yesterday so I didn't know if we needed to come today [me]You have got to be kidding me!!! I will write this in my review. Very poor [Precision Cuts]Ok... that's fine. If you would have responded to my test, I would have known. Generally when somebody doesn't respond, I figure the conversation is over... [me] thank you
