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 ranges anywhere from $75-$1,000. 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.

What is tree trimming vs. tree pruning?

The difference between tree trimming and tree pruning comes down to the intention and strategy in the two methods. Pruning often refers to the removal of branches deemed unnecessary or hazardous, and this process helps stimulate growth. Tree trimming focuses on removing overgrown branches. But this process can also help the tree receive more moisture and light. 

A professional might recommend pruning and trimming at different times of year to stimulate growth or leverage the tree’s dormant period to slow new sprouting.

If a neighbor's tree falls on my property, who is responsible for removal?

The rules for liability when a neighbor's tree falls on your property may depend on the unique details of the situation. A common outcome is that the homeowner pays for the damage and removal. Homeowners insurance may cover a tree that fell into your yard from a wind storm. Check your local laws and insurance policy to find out.

How do you remove roots after tree removal?

Getting rid of tree roots can be tricky. There are methods for getting roots out yourself, but the labor involved will take several hours and is quite intensive. For this reason, it’s best to hire a pro to remove stumps and roots. 

What do tree removal companies do with the wood?

Downed trees can have a number of different end destinations. The tree removal company may use it as firewood to sell to customers, or they may send it through a wood chipper to turn it into mulch. The tree may also wind up in a green landfill or biomass power plant. Alternatively, it could go to a lumber or chip mill. 

What are the advantages of cutting trees?

There are several advantages to responsible tree cutting. As trees age and stop producing seeds, cutting them down can prevent them from falling on valuable property like homes and cars. Additionally, cutting trees allows more sunlight to reach smaller trees below, giving them the opportunity to grow. And pruning your trees can help promote growth.

Who is responsible for cutting overhanging tree branches?

You should check your local laws to determine who is responsible for cutting overhanging tree branches on your property. If possible, make an agreement with your neighbor(s) on who is responsible to trim back tree branches that cross property lines.

Dennis came out quickly to give me a quote and was able to get me scheduled the following week. Jovan and team came out and made quick work of my 5 trees. Jovan noticed some other trees that needed work (removal, trimming) and was able to take care of them on the spot. Great group of pros!

Very easy to work with. Responsive, professional, and thorough. Mike removed a loose hanging limb and pruned my 4 maple trees. They look so much better. All services were communicated clearly and prices were fair. I’m pleased with the results.

Jim and son came up to Huntersville and looked at the tree I needed removed. He was very honest and said the job would require heavy duty equipment . He helped steer me to other options. Highly recommend him. Don F

Levi’s team were great to work with in removing a half dead split pine in our back yard! We’re due to have a baby any day now and he was out to give an estimate the next day with tree removal happening within 48hrs! So appreciated for peace of mind and the clean up was so great you can’t even tell they were here. Will 100% be recommending to friends and family!

Had a large tree trunk, stump & root ball removed. Michael Collins & his team did an excellent job. They started and finished the job promptly, worked hard and were very courteous. I recommend them and will hire them again for other projects.

The Hernandez Team was excellent. They showed up on time (exactly when they said they would) and did an outstanding job. They removed three trees in all. Two of those trees were in a very difficult location. In fact, three other contractors had declined the work (one of them after he had started the process of moving my storage shed). Another company quoted me twice as much as Mr. Hernandez did. I strongly recommend Hernandez Tree Services. I live on a wooded lot, and I will use them again whenever the need arises.

This company operated with the highest level of professionalism, they were on time, they were amazing with their communication and keeping an open line of communication with me if any changes in scheduling needed to be made. They estimated the job to take 2 hours, and finished within 1 hour. They stayed true to their pricing and no damage was done to any of our fence or property or other surrounding trees. They even went above and beyond to remove some of the smaller trees that were in fringing on the property. All of them were upbeat and positive, they did exactly as we asked and cleaned up appropriately.

Michael responded immediately to my urgent tree removal request and gave the best rate out of all quotes. Best of all they came within a few hours and worked late to ensure that my and my neighbors driveway was cleared of debris after my tree fell following the storm. They came the next day and finished the work on time. It's hard to find professionals who take their work seriously and aren't out there to swindle you out off your money. Michael Collins is certainly one of the very few guys who values his work and your time.
