Best gutter cleaning so far. Very thorough and even cleaned the down spouts all the way to the underground drains pipes. I signed up for regular bi-annual service and will also use ASC for tree removal. You can tell Oliver and his crew really care about the job they do for you.

Just moved in to a new house, and the yard had been very much neglected. It needed massive leaf removal. Alex promptly got the huge job done. He even sent us pictures while we were at work to make sure we were satisfied with the results.

I was looking for someone to do routine yard maintenance at my new house but I needed a 100 foot tall dead tree taken down first. It was a monster tree. Gerardo did a fantastic job getting the tree down at a very good price. It was a difficult job and he was very professional and is a nice person to work with.

I hired ArbSmart to come out and take down some trees. He was prompt and very reasonable, plus his work was far better than the other tree services that we have used over the years. We feel that he went above and beyond what we ever expected. I highly recommend ArbSmart for any tree job you may have!

Terrell Services hauled off years of tree trunks and limbs from the wooded area behind my home. Truthfully, the task was overwhelming. Chris knew he could do it, and he did. The cost was very reasonable considering the number of loads and the sheer volume. He left my driveway and my yard in immaculate condition. The wooded area looks great. I am absolutely thrilled with the job Terrell Services did for me!

I had an excellent experience with Cal Scapes and I am so glad that I hired them to do my yards today! The owner was on time, professional, listened very carefully to what I wanted done, was able to answer several questions that I had about trees and he had a great deal of knowledge about different flowers, plants, bushes and trees. I was very impressed with his knowledge in overall horticulture and landscaping. My yards look absolutely beautiful and I will definitely be hiring Cal Scapes to do more work in the near future! GREAT JOB!

They did a great job doing a yard cleanup project for me. My yard was in pretty rough shape, and everything was overgrown and out of control. They mowed, edged, cleaned all beds, added pinestraw throughout property and trimmed all of my bushes/trees back to give it better curb appeal. They did a great job working with my schedule, and thanks to them, I am now ready to get my house on the market! Would definitely hire again.

We highly recommend DYG Landscaping! Daniel is thorough in his quotes. He actually comes out to measure and evaluate the job versus trying to save time and do through pictures like other companies wanted us to do. I was impressed by his honesty; he did not try to sell us products that we did not need (some sod areas did need a little top soil and others did not). He is very professional, has competitive prices, and has excellent customer service. Daniel responds to questions quickly. He and his crew show up on time, work hard, do beautiful work, are respectful of property, clean up, and have the proper equipment. We have had Daniel and his crew do sod installation 2 times (one time 2 1/2 pallets were installed in 3 areas of our yard {one side of house, a section near top of driveway, and a difficult area around a tree in front yard} and most recently 10 pallets in our back yard). Not just supervising the installation, Daniel actually works with the crew for the whole job. All sod areas have grown and done well. Each service/interaction was equally as good as the first. We would not hesitate to hire him again.

Giles Tree Service cut some overhang above my house and did an excellent job. They were very professional and patient. They used their time wisely to safely cut the branches over my home without damaging any property. Giles let me know the procedure before cutting anything. He kept me well informed. On top of providing such a great and comfortable service and experience their price was very reasonable and fair. I would recommend Giles Tree Service to anyone needing trees or branches cut!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost to remove a tree stump?

Once you have a tree cut down, you’ll probably want to remove the tree stump as well. You may want the stump removed for aesthetics, the tree stump could be diseased, you might want to prevent regrowth, or you may find the roots are causing problems and need to be removed. Tree removal costs don’t always include the cost to grind out or dig out a tree stump after the tree has been felled and the trunk removed. The national average cost for stump removal ranges from $150 to $200. There are two main methods for dealing with tree stumps. In grinding, pros use a chipping machine to grind away the above-level tree stump until it sits just below the soil surface. Tree stump removal entails lifting the entire root ball of a tree out of the soil. Removing the stump will leave a hole in the ground and also take more time, labor and money than stump grinding. Here are some examples of average tree stump removal costs:

  • Stump grinding: $2-$4 per inch.
  • Tree stump removal: average of $60-$350.

The final price will depend on the stump’s size, condition, location and condition of the soil around it.

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 down a massive tree?

If you have to remove a big, beautiful tree from your property, you’ll definitely need an arborist. Cutting down a massive tree without the proper tools or training can lead to major property damage or injury. A huge tree may need to be removed if it is diseased or dying and poses a safety risk, has suffered a blow from a storm and isn’t safe, or is growing into your home, your home’s foundation, your septic system, or your power lines. Removal costs for such large trees will depend on the tree’s height, diameter, and relative safety and accessibility, as well as whether you also need the felled tree and stump removed. The bare minimum for removal of a tree over 75 or 80 feet would be $1,000. This may not include tree quartering and removal or stump grinding. Stump grinding ranges on average from $2 to $4 per inch of the stump’s diameter. There is no set price as each situation is unique, so it’s always best to have an arborist give you a quote and detail exactly which services are included in the price.

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.
