Pedro and his crew were fantastic. We had previously hired someone to trim and cut down some trees. When that contractor up and disappeared leaving a huge unfinished mess we looked elsewhere for help getting our backyard cleaned up. Pedro responded quickly and cleared our yard. We could not be more grateful. He was also very reasonable providing the amount of work left behind by the first guy. Highly recommend this crew!!!

I hired Mid-America for a one-time tree removal. Robert was friendly and polite. He underbid other contractors and did the job for the estimated amount as well. They got to the job quickly and communicated effectively. I will call them again for any future lawn care needs.

I had a large tree cut down and another large tree trimmed. Quad C Tree Service provided a timely estimate and scheduled the appointment as soon as the weather permitted. I was very impressed with their professionalism and they left my yard cleaner than when they arrived. I plan to use them again in the Fall and would highly recommend this business.

He was friendly, knowledgeable,on time. We walked around the yard and discussed what needed to be done. He started right away, mowed,edged,and trimmed as well as blowing everything clean and neat. I discussed having him come back to do some tree trimming, and landscaping work next week. Priices are fair and Will hire hmmm again. He has all his own equipment, is licensed and insured which adds peace of mind. He is young, strong,prepared to work and is finished in a short amount of time. Terry Sprous, Festus, ,MO

Excellent crew/company to deal with. On time (actually arrived 3 hrs earlier than original agreed upon time), promptly notified me of earlier time which worked out great for us. Crew were very professional, and took great care in cutting the tree down considering how close it was to my home and my neighbors home.WOULD DEFINATELY RECOMMEND This company to anyone needing tree services. Clean up was quick and complete, all debris completely removed. Daniel and crew even took care of another tree that was growing into my fence and causing problems, all for one very reasonable price.

Justin and his team did a fantastic job. There are quite a few trees close to my very tall home. The branches were overgrown and literally resting on my roof. Justin came out and cut the branches back. He was timely, efficient, and clean! And, very professional.

Simply Trees did a great job trimming the giant old oak in our backyard. Their quote was fair and the service was friendly and no-nonsense. They were on site early and powered through until the job was completed. I appreciated the care they gave to clean up, especially to our neighbor’s back yard. I definitely plan to use them for future tree trimming needs.

I could not wait to give my recommendation for Baumann Tree Service today. I was totally amazed at the professional way my 60+ft, 150 year old white oak tree (that was hanging over my house) was cut down today. To see the skill that all six men had to cut every limb down in about 5 hours was mind blowing. Mike Baumann personally directed the project and left me will a great deal of fire wood. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Baumann Tree to anyone who needs a tree cut down with peace of mind at a very reasonable price. They did everything they said they would in a timely manner and left the site very clean. I have pictures and video I will post on their website. Thank you Mike Baumann and your whole crew and God bless you.

We had 1 tree removed and 1 tree trimmed at our residence. The Envirogreen staff from start to finish was very helpful, informative and professional. The tree crew did an amazing job with our older large tree we had removed next to our home and power lines. We would recommend this company to anyone looking for tree service or even landscape work. We couldn't be more happy with our experience with Envirogreen.

Kim and the folks at Huskey Tree Service got with me immediately after I dropped my request into Thumbtack, and by that afternoon, our tree was gone. The site was cleaned up after the fact, and they were super nice doing it. Big thanks to her and her team for their professionalism and hard work.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

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 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.
