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 ranges anywhere from $75-$1,000. 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.

What is tree trimming vs. tree pruning?

The difference between tree trimming and tree pruning comes down to the intention and strategy in the two methods. Pruning often refers to the removal of branches deemed unnecessary or hazardous, and this process helps stimulate growth. Tree trimming focuses on removing overgrown branches. But this process can also help the tree receive more moisture and light. 

A professional might recommend pruning and trimming at different times of year to stimulate growth or leverage the tree’s dormant period to slow new sprouting.

If a neighbor's tree falls on my property, who is responsible for removal?

The rules for liability when a neighbor's tree falls on your property may depend on the unique details of the situation. A common outcome is that the homeowner pays for the damage and removal. Homeowners insurance may cover a tree that fell into your yard from a wind storm. Check your local laws and insurance policy to find out.

How do you remove roots after tree removal?

Getting rid of tree roots can be tricky. There are methods for getting roots out yourself, but the labor involved will take several hours and is quite intensive. For this reason, it’s best to hire a pro to remove stumps and roots. 

What do tree removal companies do with the wood?

Downed trees can have a number of different end destinations. The tree removal company may use it as firewood to sell to customers, or they may send it through a wood chipper to turn it into mulch. The tree may also wind up in a green landfill or biomass power plant. Alternatively, it could go to a lumber or chip mill. 

What are the advantages of cutting trees?

There are several advantages to responsible tree cutting. As trees age and stop producing seeds, cutting them down can prevent them from falling on valuable property like homes and cars. Additionally, cutting trees allows more sunlight to reach smaller trees below, giving them the opportunity to grow. And pruning your trees can help promote growth.

Who is responsible for cutting overhanging tree branches?

You should check your local laws to determine who is responsible for cutting overhanging tree branches on your property. If possible, make an agreement with your neighbor(s) on who is responsible to trim back tree branches that cross property lines.

I contacted this company to trim a large tree in my back yard. He responded very quickly and came the next day to complete the job. He did a great job trimming the tree and his prices are very reasonable. After the initial trimming job, I asked him to cut down another small tree, and he did so for a reasonable price. I recommended him to several neighbors and friends.

ASAP came out and gave us a price to cut down a dead ash tree and trim a maple tree that was hanging over neighbors house. The price was very reasonable and work was completed quickly.They cleaned everything up and made sure we were satisfied. They are very professional and courteous. I would recommended them to anyone needing tree work. I will also be having them come out to trim all the rest of our trees in the near future.

We had a great experience with ASAP tree services. They came out to our home to give us a quote on pruning/crowning a tree within 24 hours of us calling them and cut the tree within the same week for a good price. We were informed the day before they came out that they would be coming and an approximate time. The crew was very professional and did a quick but beautiful job trimming our tree. They also raked our lawn after the trimming was done and left our yard in good condition. We would definitely recommend them to others and will be using them again in the future for our tree needs.

Saul and his team did an amazing job! We had three trees removed and another large tree trimmed. They worked fast and efficiently. The cleanup was superb and Saul was extremely fair with the price. I won't be calling anyone else for help!

Trees trimmed and cut done tree but left a big stump that he was supposed to comeback to finish cutting down. Went ahead and paid him for job because wasn't going to be at property the next few days. Never came back to finish cutting the stump lower.

Saul and his team did an awesome job. My trees and especially my backyard were in a terrible state. They trimmed the large trees very well. They removed all the other baby/weed trees, fallen branches etc. and a huge garden patch we dumped in for years and had serious over growth, it looks brand new. I highly recommend Saul and his company!

They did a great job trimming and deadwooding two very large trees in our front yard. They removed all debris, cleaned up the yard, swept the driveway and, in fact, left it in better condition than they found it. We highly recommend them!!

They were very quick responding initially, and were here that same day to give me an estimate. They also gave us advice on how to properly care for our trees. Instead of encouraging us to do more, or even what we thought we needed done, they educated us on how to maintain the health of our trees and as well as make them beautiful. They cleaned up everything and there was no sign that they had ever been present besides our newly trimmed trees. We will be using them in years to come.

Saul and his crew did a fantastic job. So good in fact that my neighbor saw his quality work and asked him for a quote. He was hired on the spot. He will be trimming his trees next week. Obviously his work speaks for itself! Highly recommend!!

I had several mature trees on my property and my neighbor’s property hanging over the roof of my house and the roof of my garage. All of the Milestone crew did an amazing job. They were kind, professional, and thorough. They trimmed trees, hauled away branches, and cleaned up my yard of fallen leaves and twigs. My yard looks better than it has in years and they charged me a very fair price. I will definitely work with them again.

We are in a mixed feeling to leave this review: the initial contact and the quotation was very quick. We have two separate tree maintenance with him; 1) Trimming trees & chopping down one tree for $600+, and 2) Replanting of Maple tree for $300. 1) was taken care of in a reasonable time frame in September. We were informed that the Maple tree would not be released from Nursey till October 1, so he said he will come back as soon as it is released in beg/Oct. Now it's middle of the October, and we somewhat lost contact with him. No return calls nor e-mails. His voice mail now not accepting any messages. It looks like for us that he suddenly disappeared after larger part of our contract. Perhaps $300 is not worth coming back? Phil, if you see this, please contact us. We still want to work with you...

These guys were fantastic!! Absolutely a wonderful job. I think one of the guys was Spider-Man. I plan to coordinate further work with them. They did a major trimming on two 80 foot tall trees on my neighbors side causing a major nuance and hazard on my property. They were amazing!! Highly recommended.

Saul and his crew removed 2 large trees and trimmed another tree in our backyard. We were extremely pleased with his expertise and professionalism. He responded quickly to our request -- showed up on time and when promised to complete job. The trees that were removed were close to a flower garden--Saul did an amazing job at dropping limbs without harming any flowers! The crew did a very thorough job at cleaning up the debris and the stump grinding was also completed to our satisfaction in a very timely manner. From start to finish, we couldn't be more pleased with the job and would highly recommend Saul/AsapTree Services.

Edward & Calvin are awesome! I would definitely recommend them and will be hiring them again in the future. Hard workers, very friendly and so professional. These two young men did an amazing job cleaning our yard, trimming trees, clearing gutters and making our yard look better than we thought possible.

Very prompt in removing tree off of house. The issue is that when Phil originally came out to our property to assess, he provided us with a quote and also said he would trim the stump down as much as possible due to fencing in the way. After he came back to remove the rest of the tree out of our yard, which was 2 days later than originally stated, he left the stump as is and he proceeded to provide us with a final invoice that was $500 MORE than our quote. He actually scribbled out the original quote and placed the new price on our copy of our quote and handed it back to us. Very unprofessional and disappointing. Prior to leaving he said, let me know once the fence is removed and I'll come out and provide you a quote for the stump (which originally was supposed to be included)
