Jaime was on top of his game. He was always calling me to follow up. He worked with two other guys and they did a fine job pruning the bushes, weeding the plant beds and mulching them! They did it in two days! I will recommend him to anyone!

Gonzalez Tree Care Inc. is well organized, very experienced and fully equipped to handle small and large tree trimming jobs. After buying a house with thick rows of trees on 2 sides and along the front drive last year, I estimated that 4 trees would have to be trimmed this summer. Brian explained during the estimate that removal at the base was the only solution for some trees growing toward the house and over the driveway, and he showed how other trees would soon overgrow. I gave him the job because I wanted the results to last. Brian marked every target tree the day before. The 6-man crew cleared the large trees that were brushing the house in back and cut back multiple small trees and vines on the side and front. They hauled away all the wood and blew leaves and branches so the yard was clear afterwards. Later, I watched a security camera video documenting a TALL tree falling at a perfect angle into a narrow space to the side of the railing by my porch stairs. A less experienced team would have damaged the porch stairs by misdirecting the tree by a few inches. These men are real pros, and thanks to their expertise and hard work, my yard is now under control.

My entire experience with Stone, Soil and Shrubs has been excellent. I’ve happily contracted lawn service with this company for about ten years. The monthly service plan we have includes all mowing, trimming, all fertilizer and chemical applications, all pruning, and twice yearly seeding as needed. In addition to this, we’ve also retained them to provide a la carte services such as resolving drainage issues, tree removal, hardscaping, sodding, and the planting and transplanting everything from annuals to trees to entire beds. They are reasonably priced for the high level of service they provide and they are responsive to any query or complaint—and those are rare. Most of my immediate neighbors have used them either on contract or for single-service jobs. I have never heard a complaint. It isn’t hard to find someone to mow your lawn. It is very hard to find someone who will treat it like their own, and not take shortcuts.

Steve and his team did a great job on the removal of over 20 trees damaged from the last storm and a few others that could be problematic. He was very professional and prompt. The crew did all they could to avoid damage to our other trees or property. I will hire this company in the future.

Chris and Fred did an incredible job on my house. They arrived early and didn't stop working until every shrub was pruned and shaped. Our shrubs were severely overgrown. Now they look tidy and beautiful. They also edged, weed-whacked, mowed and sprayed the poison ivy. I could not be happier with their service!

Mark is super knowledgeable about trees (health and threat), respectful of them and their place in the ecosystem, and exceptionally competent at pruning them with surgical precision, taking them down, and cleaning up the mess. Also, very competitive pricing. And, he does it with a smile, because he clearly enjoys the work. He took down one of my dead oaks, some other dead pruning, and will be back in the Fall for additional pruning, when it's healthier for the trees. I highly recommend Mark and Pure Tree Care for all your tree service needs!

Henry did a wonderful job with the lawn. The grass was cut, weeds trimmed and yard blown, all for a reasonable price. I will definitely use his services again. I intend to have him do some pruning on the next visit also.

Sam Davis is fantastic - my shrubs have never looked so good. I thought I’d have to rip them out and re-plant. He’s saved me so much money and time because I had been trying (and failing) to do the pruning on my own. Take it from me - call Sam before you waste your weekend doing a mediocre job! Hire a professional!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

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.
