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.

Dennis and his crew did a great job with our tree trimming. We have very tall and old ficus trees - they brought a boomer and trimmed all my trees for hurricane season, I also hired them for lawn maintenance going forward.

These guys were great! I wish this system had the option for more than 5 stars. These guys deserve it! I had several trees that had to be removed as well as some tree trimming, they did a fantastic job. Not only did they remove my trees they stump grinded the roots/base of the tree so you would never know there was ever a tree. After removing the trees they cleaned everything up. I already booked them next week to plant some new trees on my property. These guys get the job done!!! Could not be happier.

had to get three large trees trimmed. posted and got a response right away and a visit out the same day to assess the job. (and the request was sent after 3 pm that day) quoted the job, followed up and showed up on time and even went above and beyond in the clean up phase after the trimming was complete... . couldn't be happier...

Hired to trim several large trees including oak and mahogany, and to trim and clean up Traveler’s Palm trees. Adequate job on large trees, though the palms were hacked like a monkey let loose with an axe. Left yard messy. Left cuttings partially blocking street upon departure. Sloppy job overall. Company was asked to return to attempt repair of palms and remove debris from roadway, which they did. Did fair job of fixing hacked palms and did clear roadway on second effort. Discovered a missing bungee cord after workers departed. Company replaced bungee cord, though not before an argument over it. Photos speak for themselves.

MOA Tree Services were very quick to respond to my quote inquiry the same day. We were able to coordinate for Alberto to come to my property to scope the job the very next day. Alberto was very thorough in his inspection about the tree and the potential hazards they needed to work around. MOA Tree Services were able to come on a Saturday to do the job and were punctual. Overall, the work was fantastic and they were able to clean-up and move all the trimmed tree debris to the front of my property. I highly recommend them and will contact again for the remaining branches.

We needed a tree leaning over my fence causing issues with my pool trimmed and Rashard was very responsive and communicative. Also considerate of my time. Would definitely use them again when the need arises again.

They responded immediately to my request for an estimate. I hired them later the same day. It took them a day and a half to complete a big job of removing some trees, grinding stumps and trimming trees. They were not able to remove a stump clump of areca palms, which was a disappointment, but overall, they did a great job. I was pleased with the level of professional work, trucks and heavy equipment. I would hire them again, and I do recommend them.
