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.

Miguel and his team were top notch! Very responsive, professional, and the quality of their work was excellent. His prices were very fair and well below the big name tree trimming services. He was very knowledgeable about the trees and recommended trimming certain trees due to growth rate. He and his team were very kind and respectful. If you're in need of yard services, look no further, this company is excellent!

I recently got helped with some tree trimming job on 3 of my palm trees and a big oak tree. Gil and his team were very clear and forthright with the communication all along and on time (ahead of time actually, which made things only better) with the job. I got the exact result I was looking for per the agreement with regard to the tree trimming. Gil came across as flexible in our conversations and was open to working within the price range I was looking for. This approach made it easier for me to select them, along with the other positive reviews I read. I would recommend West Boca Lawn's services to anybody and look forward to establishing a long term relationship.

Very happy with our experience. I received a response almost immediately, and they were available to come out to trim our palm trees the next day. I scheduled right away without waiting for another quote. I received several other responses later in the evening and this was the best price I received.

These guys from Coconuts For College did a fantastic job on these overgrown Birds of Paradise palms. They went above and beyond what I initially asked for and now my back yard looks great. I will have these guys on speed dial for any of my future tree trimming needs. They arrived on time for both the estimate and work and cleaned up the patio area before leaving. Hire these guys.

Hands down the worst experience I've had with a contractor. 4 day job took 2 1/2 months to complete. Scheduled more "no shows" than actual days of work. Left tree trimmings on my grass killing it and failed to mention he hit my shed with his stump grinder. Only finished the job after I filed paperwork to take him to small claims court. I also filed a claim against his insurance for the damaged property and chewed up lawn from the stump grinder. Do your self a favor and keep looking.

Brandon, is a nice guy, however he came over on the day I requested him and said he would come back on a Wednesday since our landscaping pick up was on Thursday. He did show up on that Wednesday and trimmed one palm tree but could not do the other two since they were too high. He said he would come back over the weekend to complete job, but I had to text him late Sunday to see if he was going to show up. He did respond but then said he would be by before Thursday to complete the job. As of yesterday I called and texted him and got no response. I would not hire him as he can't complete jobs and can't even call someone back and admit he can't do the job.
