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 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 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.

They did great work. He kept me informed about what he found when trimming the trees. Several branches had fallen prior to him cutting down/ trimming the trees and he came out on a Sunday to assess the situation. He put down topsoil after removing tree stumps and I’m very pleased with the work.

Removed a large tree from house and a 100 foot + tree. Estimate was quick, job was performed as scheduled with no overruns. The crew was fantastic and Cecil was a pleasure to deal with. I have already committed to more work this winter. You can't do better than contracting with Mullins!

Exceptional job done by Pedro Tino and a fellow worker. Had 3 large trees that had low overhanging branches trimmed and shaped. Also had a large dying cedar tree removed. Results were excellent and allowed clear views of the front of our home. All branches cut down were loaded in a trailer and removed. Driveway was cleared of all debris. Pedro and his worker were both proficient, knowledgeable, and provided excellent service. Extremely pleased and would recommend Tino's Tree Service to everyone. Thank you.

Mullins is hands down the most professional Tree Removal service I have ever come across. They removed 4 large trees from our property and removed stumps as well. They cleaned up all debris and made sure our property was nice and clean before leaving. Cecil is a stand up guy. If you want first class customer service and a price that is as fair as they come then look no further than Mullins. I can't say enough good things about these guys! Hire them and see for yourself.

These guys are amazing. I put in a request for a quote on a Tuesday, they were here on Saturday for an estimate. Gave me an estimate on the spot and cut down half of them that day!!! Overall, they cut down and hauled off 4 large trees in about a day and a half. They are coming back in about a week to grind the stumps. I'm more than pleased with their work. Tree removal is one of the toughest jobs, and these guys are bad asses!!! My yard looks a million times better. They didn't try to talk me out of anything. I pointed and they cut them down. This company has exceeded my expectations in tree removal, and I plan on using them again!

Would highly recommend and will probably use down the road for a few other tree removals. The team worked their tails off, the ground was a little soggy from the rain and they did great job not destroying my yard.

Just had two trees, sandwiched between two telephone lines, removed. Their quote was competitive, they were easy to work with and they called ahead of time to schedule the job. The job was completed quickly and without issue. Great job of raking and cleaning up the job site.

Submitted quote at 4pm. They came out to give me my quote at 8pm. Came back at 730am the next day to do the job. Family Tree Service did a quick job with the large limbs I needed removed. And they did it all for a great price.

Team came by my place of residence to give me a quote after reviewing the photo of the Tree I wanted chopped down. Danny did give me an honest quote over the phone and when they showed up they kept their word. Once we discussed how much for the 50% trim, he then gave me a better quote for entire removal. The team did an amazing job and even took extra time to chop individual logs so that both my neighbor and I can have fire wood for evening bon fires. Thank you Manley Tree Service. I will be contacting you soon for the front tree

Diego came out and did an estimate that fit my schedule and completed the work the following Monday. The work was just as we discussed and he went above and beyond to remove the tree closest to the house to keep us safe. He truly is an honest, trustworthy businessman that is focused on doing a good job and to satisfy his customers! I will be recommending him.

***VERY SATISFIED CUSTOMER*** I had the best experience with this company. My only regret is that I don’t have anymore large trees for them to cut down :) Very professional and punctual! Price was very reasonable and I simply just loved this company! I will definitely refer them to anyone who needs a tree removal. If I ever need a job like this in the future, I will most definitely use this company AGAIN!! I absolutely adore their work and the way my front yard now looks from my big picture window. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR A JOB WELL DONE!!

If I could get a minus star I would put it on this review. Two times now I called to have this man meet with me for an estimate on tree removal service the first time he said that he had completely forgot about me.I then scheduled a second appointment, he never showed for it either but I called he didn't even remember who I was. If this is a type of service this company deliver and I think you should be aware
