Jaime was excellent! Jaime made contact within a few hours of me posting & came by the next day to view property in order to give me a quote. The quote was very fair for a badly neglected landscape of front, side & back yards with the ask of weeding & laying mulch in front yard; removing bushes in side yard; cutting down fallen tree, removing branches, picking up leaves & pine straw & spraying to kill vines. He purchased the mulch & came to start the job within a few days. Jaime worked hard to ensure that the job was done to my satisfaction. In fact, I am so satisfied that I signed up to now have him do our landscaping (mowing, seeding, weeding, aerating).

The tree removal was excellent, the clean up fair. Spent all day raking and separating larger limbs from the limb piles (too big for the city to pick up).

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.

Rob & his crew fenced in our back yard, and we could not be more pleased with his work. He was affordable, professional, his crew was very polite(which we appreciated), they were there on time, and they got the job done in a just a few days. He was even able to remove a tree for us, to give us a nice, straight line. The fence is beautiful, has 3 gates, and we absolutely love it!

I found Parrish Tree Service on Thumbtack after a fair-sized tree fell over on our screened porch. They came out on a Sunday and gave a reasonable estimate, then showed up when agreed and got the tree down. They are professionals with professional tree removal equipment. They did not have a lot of space to work with and figured out a way to get the tree down safely. I hope we don’t have any more tree problems, but if we do they’ll be the first people I call.

I hired Jose the remove and put in a new front walkway and steps for my front porch. I received a very thorough bid and Jose to the time to answer my questions. He showed up on time, 7 am and completed the work in one day despite having to remove some concrete that was greater than 4 inches thick. He and his assistance worked until 6 pm. He did a very good job and I was very pleased with the new walkway and steps. I will use Jose again for some of my landscaping projects. Kurt Anderson

I hired Humble Tree to cut down several trees and bushes on my property. I was very impressed with Michael's knowledge of all of the different plants to be removed. He gave me the best removal strategy based on the type of tree. He was always prompt, professional, and great to talk with. He did an excellent job with the tree removal, tree trimming, and was careful to clean up afterwards and not leave a mess behind. The price he quoted was great value for the work done as well. I will certainly hire Humble Tree for all my future yard maintenance needs, and will be recommending him to my friends and neighbors as well.

Where do I even begin. Lewis (Owner), Michael, Timmy and Tim were absolutely phenomenal. My story is a bit different in that the job was unable to be completed (through no fault of the company) . I hired B&L for junk removal for an apartment move out. From the time I was given a very reasonable quote...to the polite gentleman contacting me well in advance to verify the details of the job...to Michael being considerate enough to think of additional costs to me and assisting in researching alternatives then working closely with Lewis to troubleshoot options to challenges brought about by my apartment trash disposal restrictions. Again, they were awesome and very patient after having completing a job that was over an hour away. I was treated as though my job was their priority the whole time. I already have a few upcoming installation projects (in my new place) that I plan to use them for. EXTREMELY PLEASED WITH B&L AND WOULD DEFINITELY USE AGAIN AS WELL AS REFER.

Can’t say enough good things about these guys. I contacted them on Sunday and they were able to take down a tall pine on Wednesday (before the hurricane). Response was immediate, they showed up right on time, and I also got another estimate and they were well under. Ground was too wet to bring in the skid steer so tree is on the ground but not removed. Hopefully it won’t rain forever and ground will dry at some point but I will update review again after tree has been removed.

Jared and his team did an outstanding job from beginning to end. The initial discussion about what to trim/cut, methods to use for completing the work, and the estimated schedule was complete and thorough. This was followed by excellent job execution. It was complex with many trees needing branches removed, and a roughly 100 foot Tulip Popular tree removed from close proximity to the front of the house. No heavy equipment use was possible as the landscape made access to the area(s) impossible. The work was completed in a timely manner and cleanup was excellent. Finally, their pricing was extremely competitive. I highly recommend Brown's Arbor Care. If any further details are needed on this recommendation, please feel free to contact me personally.

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 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.
