Jaime responded right away to my request and came out the same day to provide me a quote. His price was reasonable and he did an amazing job. He cleared a large area in the back of our home that was full of trees and tree stumps. He also cleared all of the leafs and gathered all the large rocks for me in one spot. Jaime was knowledgeable and gave me other ideas for future landscaping projects. Highly recommended.

I hired this service to clear out my very overgrown back yard, which is what happened to my "natural and rustic" yard after 12 trees were taken down for solar panels on my roof. Without all the tree roots, weeds that I refer to as "monkey grass" took over, reaching heights of almost 3 feet . I had also wanted to get the area seeded in lawn in an attempt to control the weeds. This service came in and got all the weeds mowed down in a good size back yard, along with my brick patio. It was explained to me that snce the weeds were so high and dense, any seeding would be smothered by what was just cut, and it would be prudent to let the cuttings die off over the winter and seed in the spring. I appreciated the honesty rather than making a futile attempt seeding a lawn which would not thrive. I plan to use this service in the spring to start a new lawn, which will thrive, and would not hesitate to recommend this service.

Great working with Rob and his crew. My fence went up (in Chapel Hill) in record time, and it is perfect. Rob was also able to accommodate several other last minute requests for other work on my property including tree and garden work, expansion of driveway and building a shed to accommodate trash containers-and I am so pleased with all. Rob was always pleasant and respectful and a pleasure to work with. Would happily hire him again in future. Thank you JWE Designs!!

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.

I hired T'n'T Trees and Lawn to remove two tall pine trees in my backyard based on their top pro status and amazing reviews. Kent Tilley takes such pride in his name, company, quality of work, and customer satisfaction. I recommend this company to anyone who needs tree and or lawn service. Definitely deserving of the top pro status.

Hade a good conversation with Javier on the potential job of laying the sod. Scheduled the time and he was there early to start the work. He explained everything he was going to do. Cause of the weather the sod was scheduled a couple of days but once delivered. He was very proficient on how he laid the sod. He gave me instructions on how to water it as well. He planted two small trees and put down mulch for me as well. The ending results were beautiful. Thanks again Javier.

We needed several trees trimmed on our property including one holly tree that was encroaching on our second floor windows. I contacted 5 tree trimming companies and had 3 out for estimates. Jared Brown was the clear best choice. He was by far the most professional and reliable when it came to scheduling a time to come out for the estimate, and he did a great job walking the property with me and giving me his thoughts and plan for the work. His quote was also the most reasonable of the three, which was icing on the cake because I’d already decided I trusted him most with the work. He came on time, brought a co-worker, and the two of them executed the plan we’d discussed. Very impressed. Thanks Jared and we’ll keep you in mind in the future!

This is the 2nd time I had Treemenservices help us. This time I requested for 4 Thuja trees to be planted in my backyard for privacy. Treemenservices sent one professional and he did an outstanding job despite of the hot temperature outside. The professional gave us instructions for care when the job was completed and the 4 trees are doing well since being planted. Thank you!

Wesley and his team did a fabulous job taking down a VERY large tree near my rental home. He came to look at the job and gave me an immediate price and did the project within 3 days of the quote. He was very professional and friendly. I felt like I knew him for years after a 30-minute conversation! They took down the tree, grinded the stump and removed all from the back yard without any incident or delay. It was just a great experience working with him all around. I recommend Wesley for any tree trimming or removal you may wish done!

Chris's team arrived a half day early, and completed their entire work in about 2 hours. Chris gave value added to his work, by consulting on other trees, as well as removing two--next to the house, grinding stumps, and raking afterwards. I would strongly recommend them--my neighbor is already going to contact them.

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 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 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 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 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.
