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.  

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.

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.

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 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 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.

Francisco checks ALL the boxes - professional, great value, quality work, super responsive, timely, and friendly. He and his team cut off very large limbs off several huge trees close to my house and they cleared out a full area of brush and small trees - a lot of hard work. We will definitely call him again.

Darius and all the crew at 3-G Trees, Tereso, Oscar, Freddie, are consummate professionals. This is my second time hiring them for a job because they are superb! Darius provided me with an expert consultation on the trees I needed removed, and those I need not worry about, which saved me quite a bit of money. The crew handled the job of cutting six trees expertly. They also went above and beyond to prune limbs to ensure my family's safety, and they cleaned the yard immaculately. I recommend 3-G Trees highly and warmly; indeed, I have recommended them to my neighbors. 3-G Trees is simply the best!

I started contact with this company a month ago today. It took 23 days for them to finally come out and take down my tree, which was fine because it wasn't an emergency and the rate was amazing, but there were a lot of promised dates and subsequent no shows. When they did come they put on a great show and cut it down at the speed of light. Unfortunately they left the gigantic tree trunk right up against my neighbor's driveway on the grass between the street and the sidewalk. He said no worry, a second truck will come by in a business day or two to pick up the tree. It's been well over a week now and my neighbor is upset. I reached out yesterday and no one is getting back to me. I finally called their main line and a guy said he would have someone out in a few days to pick it up. Kind of bummed. I'm a single working mom juggling a hundred things at once and the last thing I need is to be stressed out about this tree trunk that is inconveniencing my neighbor and ruining her grass, and praying it doesn't roll into our busy street, which it is dangerously close to doing right now. They promised on Monday 4/10 that the tree would be picked up right away and it's Thursday and still balancing on the curb. It's been there for two weeks now.

Needed two trees removed (one which was at risk of falling on my house). On day of posting, Eddy came out that evening to do an estimate with agreement he would come the following morning to cut trees- they didn’t show up. When called, traffic was bad though it was 2pm and they were to be at my house shortly after 10am.. still didn’t show up. Received guarantee that night Eddy himself would come by tomorrow morning.. no show - stating there was an issuer with there mulcher, but my project didn’t require mulching. When contacted, stated “he was figuring it out” and would be out the following day. To no surprise, didn’t show up. Communication after initial estimate was horrible and I ended up finding another who was able to manage their resources/time better.
