Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

When is the best time of year to trim trees in Atlanta?

While spring and summer are popular times to do yard work, the best time of year to trim deciduous trees in Atlanta is the wintertime, before the trees start actively growing.

If you prune trees too early, you may risk removing dormant buds before they’ve had a chance to blossom in the spring. Winter is also ideal because many trees are dormant and you limit the possibility that you’ll spread fungal diseases. 

However, if your branches are dead, it may be best to trim your tree as soon as possible. Dead branches can invite diseases and insects. Also, tree trimming is not a one-size-fits-all process — some trees may need to be pruned or trimmed at different times of the year.

Consult with a professional to determine the best time to prune or trim your trees. Contact the best tree trimming professionals in Atlanta to get started.

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.

Very friendly, quick and affordable. Had multiple trees removed and they took great care to avoid damaging the yard. Would hire again. Note that tree removal does not include stump removal so make sure you get a quote for that as well.

From the estimate to the completion of the task they did a fabulous job in communication, pricing and the work itself. They took care of the fallen tree, removal of a dead limb from a tree and the removal of another tree. They cleaned up all of the debris and left the yard in great condition. Will definitely use them again if needed.

Darius and his crew did a fantastic job of removing a dead tree that was hanging over the neighbor's house. They took care of the bushes below the tree that belonged to the neighbor too. Darius was on time for the initial quote and on time for the job too. We originally needed one tree removed and others trimmed, but he noticed we had a second dead tree and the city arborist confirmed it. They cleaned up the yard afterward and it looked fantastic. Will tell everyone about how great and reasonably priced 3-G Trees is.

Rudy and his team were wonderful...they cut down several backyard trees and performed a lot of tree limb pruning (in 2 separate instances). Tree limbs were in the way of some serious power lines going to the house. They cleaned up really nicely too! They were fast and efficient! I highly recommend Rudy and his team for tree removal and pruning.

Scott's Treewurk is an excellent company which I would highly recommend and would use again... Scott was very knowledgeable in his field and gave me some great advice on the best way to handle the trees removal. Also, I had one tree that was located near a power line which Scott contacted the power company himself to have the line removed and replaced after the trees were taking down...I had several trees taken down and one large tree trimmed for a fair price and the guys did a fantastic job cleaning up after the service was completed... Like I mentioned before I would highly recommend this company.

Francisco was amazing! He was very meticulous and planned out how to remove a difficult placed tree. He made sure the yard was free of all tree clutter afterwards and lowered his pricing due to COVID-19. I definitely recommend this business!

Francisco was "in the neighborhood to give someone else a quote" so he stopped by to give me a quote. It was quite reasonable so I said YES ! The top half of a 10inch tree in my neighbors yard had broken and was hanging from the tree over my yard. He removed it , cleaned up and carried the pieces to the alleyway SAME DAY ! WOW ! I also got him to remove a hanging limb in the alleyway for $30 more ! ALL in less than an hour.
