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.

Jim Brown Tree Service is excellent! They arrived on time and were very nice to work with. After they trimmed two very large trees and one smaller tree, they picked up all debris --you couldn't even tell they had been there!

Jim Brown trimmed some trees in my back and side yard. He did a wonderful job not only trimming but shaping and making the trees look good. He also cleaned up and took everything away. I would recommend Jim to my friends and family and will probably use him again.

The quote appointment was within one day of my online request. Within minutes the Arborist found a critical issue with one of my trees. He went over to the tree put his hand on section of bark and removed it to reveal a large split in the tree. When they removed the tree there was a big hollow spot in the middle. It appears I was a wind storm away from the tree falling on my home, another tree or my fence. I also had two other trees trimmed. The trimmers were like nature's artist. They knew exactly what to trim and what should stay. I went from having the most overgrown trees to the best looking trees on my street. They removed everything including the stump from the tree that was removed. It looked great when they were finished. I would definitely recommend A Cut Above Tree Service.

I had Jim Brown tree service come out yesterday and trim 3 big trees and remove and stumpgrind a third, the guy in the tree that Jim was directing moved around the tree with such skill even with the snow coming down. Jim was right there working with his crew and made sure everything went right and nothing was overlooked. My trees are trimmed exactly like I wanted and my yard looks better then ever. not 1 single issue from start to finish with this company. I'm very impressed with Jim Brown tree service. I have already referred him to my sister and co worker.

I initially hired James because of his very reasonable bid and many positive reviews.I agreed to his bid and waited 3 weeks to get on his schedule to trim a very large Maple.Upon his arrival,he reevaluated the job and immediately recommended to take the tree completely down stating it was " near the end of life".Mind you,3 weeks earlier he had come out and had already assessed and bid my job for tree trimming. I politely declined at that point,stating I just wanted it trimmed. Two hours into the job,I got a call from him saying he could not trim it any more and that it was a "dangerous tree" with lots of rot and that he would just leave my check and not take payment. I'm disappointed in his service because I feel he grossly underbid the job and wanted out on completing it as requested at bidding quote.If there was a question of the tree's structural integrity,he should have mentioned that during the original bid.Now I've lost 3 weeks waiting and will now have to find another tree trimmer and a second opinion.

The crew arrived a few moments early, finished a good sized tree trim in just under an hour and left the yard looking much cleaner than before they started. I definitely would hire them again!

Jim Brown was the first to respond to my query for a tree trimmer. He came over promptly to assess and give me an estimate, and then delivered great service a day ahead of schedule. My two very old, very large trees hadn't been trimmed and cleared in decades and after his crew's work, I have sunlight in my back yard and a big decrease in fallen leaves and branches and debris. I highly recommend his tree service.

Jim and his crew were prompt, efficient, accommodating, and very in tune with what I wanted and needed done. I would recommend them highly to anyone that needs trees and things trimmed. I was really impressed also, with the clean up they did afterwards.

Super fast, friendly, professional, yet personal service! Caleb came out the same day to give us a quote on removing a 40+ foot tall dead pine tree from our yard, and his price was great! He came out the very next day with his team and did the job safely and efficiently. We highly recommend him and will be using Against the Grain for our tree-trimming needs in the future.

James and his crew did a fantastic job removing a giant old Globe Willow and they planted an Autumn Purple Ash (a large one) in my front yard. They will be coming back to trim some trees in my backyard. They were very professional and at the same time friendly. Strong hard workers. I'm very pleased with the results. I would highly recommend them!

I live out of state and needed to find someone to trim my parents apple tree. They responded really quickly and after taking a look at the amount of work made a very great quote and had it taken care of within a week. My parents were thrilled with their work and I was happy to be able to help them out even with living out of state. Thanks Frontier Property!

We are very pleased with our work that Cody and his guys did at our house. We have 40 year old trees that were overgrown and they trimmed & shaped them & they look fantastic. They showed up when they said they would, worked hard all day, and cleaned up every stick and leaf they cut down. I would use again and highly recommend them.
