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.

Is it worth it to hire a professional tree trimming service?

Hiring a professional tree trimming service near you can be worth the cost. This job requires the use of specialized equipment and involves a high degree of risk for inexperienced operators.

Safety is a major reason why you might want to avoid performing this task yourself. Another factor is time. Tree trimming services have their own equipment and tools that allow them to finish the job quickly. 

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.

Hired Brandon to remove a large tree in my backyard. He did an excellent job, being very careful not to cause any damage to adjacent trees or my landscape. He removed the downed tree and all the debris...it was like he was never there...other than the tree was gone. Brandon is very professional and friendly, and his company is top notch. I already recommended him to a co-worker, who hired Brandon to take down several large trees in their yard. They were very happy too.

Although Go Green was not the cheapest, they were the only company showing a concern for the existing landscaping under and around the 60' dead locust tree to come down. Every step was explained quite clearly. It was a technical removal requiring a crane over the house. They were prompt and courteous (these two aspects are missing in many service companies today). Everyone was professional and went about their jobs eagerly. Cleaned up the work area well and quickly. This was our first tree removal and we will not hesitate to use them if another tree is to be removed. If you want a professional job and, have it done right, call Go Green. Can't go wrong.

Big job on golf course which included cutting down six trees and grinding stumps, as well as doing a heavy trim on seven additional trees. They showed up with the equipment and the manpower to get the job done quickly and professionally. The work they performed was eying expectations and the communication was outstanding. Even though the project was on our course, they did not do any damage to the golf course or sprinkler systems and were very thorough in removing trees, grinding stumps, and trimming off dead branches. Five stars delivered and earned.

The work was eventually completed and was satisfactory. Nick the owner was out of town, but he did call multiple times to make sure I ended being satisfied, which I was happy with the quality of the work that was done. The issue came when I was told the project was complete, upon my return to the house I found the trees to be removed were removed just as requested, but only 2 of the 3 trees to be trimmed had been done. When I inquired as to why the 3rd tree wasn't trimmed the response was it wasn't in the bid. I was at a loss. Why would I have 2 of the 3 trees trimmed and not the one that was over the power line to the house? I got a few different excuses, all of which made no sense and were just that excuses. I do believe it was a miscommunication, but not sure how because my Thumbtack request was to remove 2 trees and trim 3 large trees as well as meeting them at the site and walking through it. After I insisted on talking with the owner to resolve the issue, and going around with the employee on when they would be paid, and again me insisting to talk to the owner and thier insisting I just pay them and call it good. I said some things I shouldn't have (but should of never had to), one of the employees made a terrible scene yelling vulgar things, to a point he was scaring the kids inside the house. After talking with the owner, we agreed they would come back and trim the tree at which time I would pay. All of that went as planned, the tree was trimmed as needed, I payed them and the employee apoligized for his behavior. I apologized as well. Hopefully some customer service lessons were learned from all of this and I'll chalk it up to having a bad day.

Hired to thin and trim a Japanese Maple, acorn tree and overgrown bushes in front of house. He was Responsive, quick to get to project, punctual, worked quickly and removed all limbs and cuttings, all for what I believe to be a reasonable price. Would recommend and hire again.

Most of the people we tried to talk to, did not respond to us. Brandon provided an itemized estimate for all the work so we knew what we could afford. He showed up on time and completed the job and requested. He's coming back to do the stump grinding - but I have full faith he's going to do that as well as the rest of the job. To get one tree out he had to remove part of our fence. Not only did he put the fence back, it's better than it was before! I would recommend this company (and I have) to everyone who's asked about how the job went.
