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 Largo tree removal services
Thumbtack Customer
I made an appointment with Joseph McDonald to come and inspect,a large live oak tree. I was concerned because some of the lower branches, were directly above my motor home parking area. I had requested the appointment to get the tree inspected, and get an estimate to remove some of the limbs. After a through inspection of my tree, Joseph told me that my tree was very healthy, and that there was no need to remove any of the branches. I would highly recommend Joseph to anyone, in need of tree inspection or work of any kind. I was impressed with his professional, and honest business policy. I was surprised to find someone, who would actually tell a customer that the tree was in good condition, and not try to sell me some unneeded services. Thanks again, Michael T

Dillion removed a tree out of my backyard late 2019 and while he had a good price, his team did a lazy job. The whole reason I had the tree taken down in the first place was to put a shed in its spot. There is now a large mound about 1.5-2 feet above rest of yard and will cost me another large some of money to remove even though I expressed what I wanted at beginning of contract. Also, within original contract I had his team remove a small palm that was in front of my fence and they only removed half of it and left the rest there? Overall, good price points BUT don’t expect to get a good well done with this contractor... you get what you pay for. (See pictures attached)

Paul (owner) provided a very competitive price (in comparison to 3 other bids I obtained) for the removal of 3 large, diseased holly trees including stump grinding. All work was completed in approximately 2 hours and my yard was left clean and all debris hauled away.

Dillon's (Aaron and his entire crew) removed giant oak limbs and very high overhanging mango limbs out of my yard. What a great job. They were awesome. Great price, quick and clean. We were very happy with the service. We would recommend them to anyone that needs any tree services completed.

The scope of work (trimming back branches) that we needed didn’t make sense to move forward with ABC 1-2tree, however David S (Gen Mgr) was very knowledgeable and informative about the tree and county requirements. Ex. I had no idea the tree I wanted to remove was a protected species. He made suggestions if we wanted to do it ourselves or have a guideline of what the cost should be is we hired someone. If you have large scale work that needs to be down I highly recommend him. It was apparent he wanted to do right for the customer and wasn’t out to make fast money by ripping off customers.
