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.

I had a large maple tree removed and 2 other large trees trimmed. They were the lowest bid by over $100 out of 5. They arrived as scheduled & removed the tree & trimmed the others in around 4 hours. They also removed & cleaned up everything.

They removed 4 trees for us. Excellent communication, some delays due to rain. They were very good to work with and to get the job done. I would recommend and call them again in the future when ready to remove the maple tree by the power line.

I had three very large silver maple trees removed. A very large job which took 3 days. The crew at Lawn and Labor Management were amazing. Highly professional and safe. All my neighbors were very impressed with there methodology on removing these trees. They came with all the right equipment and methodically removed the trees and grounded the stumps. The pricing was very competitive compared to others. Nice job all around. I hope to use them for more projects in the coming weeks. Highly recommend their services.

Within minutes of contacting Arborist they were at our house with a estimate. The tree that threaten to collapse on our home because the storm was removed. Even in the dark. They returned first thing the next day because of the lateness in the hour. The clean up was awesome it's hard to remember that a tree use to be there they did such an awesome job removing everything.

Obdullio and his crew were great! All the guys were very professional and polite. They removed a large tree in a small yard- a tree that other tree trimmers weren't interested in. His price was by far the best and he treated our property like it was his own. We would highly recommend Sunny Valley.

We had a full size tree just a foot from our house and a few feet from the neighbor's house. Santana Jr tree service came on site the day I asked for quotes through thumbtack. The estimate was reasonable compared to all other quotes and we scheduled within a week. Safety was obviously a priority - orange cones, truck lights, construction attire, and proper equipment were all utilized during tree removal. From start to finish the tree was removed safely and the stump ground in about 3 hours. All debris was hauled away. I couldn't imagine a better job done by anyone else. Thank you!

While I wanted to click on all of the options thumbtack wouldn't let me. They did a great job removing several trees from my property. There were 2 dead and one HUGE tree that was destroyed by ants, easily over 60 feet tall and about 4 men around. The price was excellent and they made the stumps nice and short so they won't get in the way. 100% will call them back out to remove more brush. They even removed some extra stuff without me even having to ask (fallen branches that piled up over the year). Hauled all 3 trees away and my yard looks a million times better!!! Thanks guys!

It's a pleasure to have santana jr tree service cutting our sugar gum tree down to the stump. Just like other reviews suggested, they arrived early to start on time, so by 8am they are actually cutting tree already. Before 2 pm, all work is done including cleaning up. Deck was cleaned up by the crew and they removed a dying plant for us with no additional charge! From 8am - 2 pm nobody was playing with phone or wandering around, everyone was actively working and helping each other out to get the work done precisely and effectively.No power cable or roof was touched or damaged during the removal. Will definitely recommend them to anyone who is looking for a tree service in Columbus area! Fantastic job done and really friendly crew members!Thank you santana jr tree service!

I needed two 40+ foot Bradford Pear trees and stumps removed from the front of my home. I solicited several estimates and Woodlands Tree Care's response was timely and cordial. Their reviews were very positive and their BBB rating was an A, so I met with Eric at my home. He was very friendly and not rushed. He gave me a great price. The very next day he and his crew of 4 removed the trees, ground the stumps and cleaned the area in two hours. I was pleased with the work performed and the overall experience. I would recommend them to my friends.

The trees look great. I had two difficult trees in the backyard and they did a great job removing deadwood and cleaning up around the power lines. I appreciated the thoroughness of the estimate which helped me understand the nature of the work. They left very little impact and cleared everything off the ground when they left.

Overall great experience with Mario Flores! He came out and quickly provided an estimate and made the appointment to remove one tree in a difficult spot on the same week! I was impressed by the quality of work and how professional and thorough his crew was. I would definitely hire again and recommend to anybody in the market for tree services.
