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.

Did a great job trimming up our problem tree as well as blowing out our gutters and trimming another tree that was getting unruly. Very friendly and helpful.

Brandon is THE man to call if you want any trees trimmed or removed in Kansas City. I've hired him for a small trimming job and bigger job to take down multiple trees. Each time he was responsive and offered advice on where to trim and where NOT to trim. He takes his job seriously and is fast and the best deal in town. Hands down.

I had a large tree removed and some other trees trimmed. The price I was given was very competitive and they were very professional. I will call them first for any future tree care needs that I have.

Brandon at training trees responded quickly and professionally. His knowledge base is superb and he met with us and gave us an assessment with a trim/cut plan. That week the big storm toppled one of the trees and Brandon was there within three days to offload the fallen tree. He even trimmed several dangerous branches at the same busy time. Great price, great customer service!!! I highly recommend.

These guys did an excellent job trimming up the big old oak trees in my backyard, as well as removing some volunteer trees and doing a minor trimming on a smaller tree in my front yard, all in one day. I really appreciated how, if any changes were needed during the work, Seth and/or his crew asked me about them first. I think it turned out great and would like to work with them again.

Brandon was quick to respond and his bid was very fair. Jordan and crew are experienced professionals, and their expertise was clear from the moment they arrived on site. They trimmed my tree perfectly, even doing a bit more dead-wood trimming than we had agreed on (with no extra charge). They worked safely and quickly, protecting the house and property during the process. They cleaned up all debris when they were finished, leaving everything better than they found it. If you're looking for a tree service you can trust for quality, safety, and value, make Parish Lawn & Tree your first call. They are experts in their field, and that's super important -- there is a right way and many wrong ways to trim a tree, and these guys know their trade!

I have an older home with very tall mature trees. I had Triton remove two large pear trees that were hanging over my house and garage. They ground the stumps and also trimmed a birch tree. They did exactly what I asked them to do and made recommendations for potential future work. Communication was great and the cost was competitive. I would hire them again.

Todd at Go Green Tree came was very knowledgeable with his recommendation and gave me a quote that was very reasonable compared to the competition. His crew came out and took down 3 very large trees in one day and also trimmed up 3 others that same day. It was a huge job but the crew was big and they got it knocked out all in a single day! As a bonus they also picked up all the limbs and brush and that were already on the ground. Not only did they clean their own mess from the tree trimming and removal but they left the yard far cleaner than when they started. Extremely satisfied and would definitely hire again!

Matt and his crew were excellent. We had four trees that needed fairly significant trims, and they came out and did the job we needed quickly and for a competitive price. We have a tree we want removed eventually, and when we decide to have that done, Matt will definitely be the guy we use. They came when they said they would, and the job took as long as they said it would. Really great experience.

Excellent tree trimming experience. I've had other's come out and trim my trees before, but never with as much detail and dedication to getting the job just right as Scott. From the first free estimate to the last twig that was cleaned up and hauled away, everything was done with a professional, courteous, and caring manner. This is not an individual who pops-in and pops-out to get on with the next job. This is someone who wants your yard to look as great as he'd want his yard to look. Multiple times when he was 'done' with a tree and talking to me about it, he'd stop mid-sentence and decide a few more things needed to be trimmed on it to make it look right. He cares about his art. And that what it is-- an art. Not only is he professionally good at what he does, he personally is a really nice guy. The value was excellent, and he went above and beyond at every step. I will be using him in the future, and I have told others to as well. ***In case this was TL;DR --- HE'S AWESOME, USE HIM!!

I can't say enough good things about them!! Very reasonably priced and did a fantastic job! They went above and beyond, trimming my trees and removing a dead tree. They even hauled away a brush pile that I had, blew the leaves off of my driveway and cleaned the leaves that had fallen out of my gutters and off of my detached garage. I will recommend them to everyone I know.

Bob was great to work with. The quote he gave was more than fair for the work that he had done. It is nice working with smaller crews like this vs. large companies, so you aren't paying a higher price to help cover their large crews, overhead, and marketing. Would recommend Bob to anyone I know needing a tree trim!

Calvin came out the day after I contacted him and gave me a very reasonable quote. His quote was the lowest out of all the others we received, so we hired his company. They were in our backyard two days later. They dealt with difficult parking and a tight squeeze into our backyard. They expertly cut down some major large branches and heavily trimmed our very large, mature trees. They cleaned up very well and did a great job! I would absolutely recommend this company to anyone needing reasonable prices and high quality work!
