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.

Great experience working with these guys. I have renters as neighbors and their landlord wasn't maintaining the trees on their property. The trees hanging over my property line were trimmed back nicely protecting my home and garage from the lack of maintenance. They also did a nice job trimming up a medium sized apple tree for me. I thought the price was fair and the work good. Will reach back out when I have any additional tree needs.

We couldn’t have asked for a better end-to-end experience than what Baldo and his team provided. Baldo came to the house and provided us with an initial consultation that was very thorough and clear. He made us feel like we were in good hands. Moreover, he briefly examined other trees and told us which ones may be able to benefit from trimming. He didn’t do it to upsell us at all. In fact, he told us not to trim a couple of trees that we considered trimming. Baldo gave us a very reasonable price, which was much lower than we were anticipating (based on other quotes), so I do believe the price was more than fair. Baldo and his team performed the work rather quickly and at a very high level of quality - the two trees they trimmed look terrific! After they were finished, not even a twig was left on the grass. I highly recommend D&B Tree Services and will definitely use them in the future for any additional tree trimming or cutting projects!

To prepare my house for sale I asked several tree trimming pros for a quote and Rubio’s was the only one to respond, even after another service came out to look at the job. The Rubio’s team trimmed my trees in a way that enhances the curb appeal of my house that is now for sale. They cleaned up as though they were never there. The price was reasonable. I’d hire them again.

Major trimming and tree removal job all done in a day with great clean up- they even cleaned our pool from the debris! Super cool to watch them in the trees bringing every large branch down by an elaborate rope and pulley system.

Sonny responded quickly and he and the Monster Timber crew arrived on time. They did a good job of trimming the branches of three trees that had grown on to the roof and removing a dead tree. They even threw in the cutting of a small sapling that was growing across the driveway and that I had mentioned that I was going to cut.

Great crew, solid work ethic. No issues from initial contact to job finished. If you want more than what was just described you should just trim it up and haul it away yourself. A better tree-trimming experience is probably not possible. These guys get it done and done to your satisfaction. Period.

They did a great job! Trimmed 4 very large trees and cut out thick honeysuckle. Cleaned up so well, would have never known they were there without seeing the completed work.

George was here on time and stood behind the committed price even though he had to rent extra equipment unexpectedly. He also gave me information and shared pictures of what the tree looks like in places that can't be seen from the ground. Overall, excellent job with trimming the tree and clean up was exceptional.

They did a great job discussing our trees with us and letting us know their professional opinion on what should be trimmed. Property was very clean after they left, almost like they weren't there. They did a very good job.

I am beyond satisfied with the quality of work Woodland Tree Care provided me. They showed up when they said they would and charged me what we agreed upon. They even matched a competitors quote. The work itself was great! My trees have never looked better and now I don't have to worry about neighbor complaints due to my trees touching my neighbors roof. I would definitely use them again. They trimmed 10 trees and dropped 2 in 4 hours. Excellent!!!!!!!

Sonny and his team did a great job. We had a large birch removed near the house and a number of large trees around the house trimmed back from the roofline. They were quick with a quote and showed up ready to work the next day. Professional, courteous, and got the job done right. Would definitely recommend!

I have needed tree trimming/removal for years at my home, but have never been able to justify the cost. Tree care is extremely expensive. I decided to get more quotes this year and used Thumbtack to do so since I've had good luck with professionals on here for other projects in the past. I reached out to Dan for a quote on May 3rd. He messaged me back quickly and said he was able to get here today. He got here when he said he would and gave me a quote for the trees in my front yard--it was such a great value compared to all the quotes I've gotten from similar companies in the past that I had him look at my backyard as well. All in all, his quote was about a third of the price of the most expensive quote I have gotten from a highly recommended company--for double the trees (so we would get 4 trees done at a THIRD of the cost of what the other company wanted for 2). That value is insanely good. He hadn't even left my driveway by the time I called him to set up an appointment. Dan had to delay work for one day, which could have been a minor inconvenience if my husband and I didn't work from home (so we could be here at time of service). Thankfully we do, so it wasn't a big deal. They were done by the end of the day. That included three large tree trims, one large tree removal, and the grinding/removal of all mess. They even picked wood chips out of my front gardens and removed a large branch from my backyard that was already there. They offered to grind the stump (in the attached photo) for extra, which I agreed to since it was still cost-effective. I waited until everything was done to review, so here I am (the stump has been ground down and the bill matched the quote). Dan was amazingly cost-effective, punctual, and professional. He was also honest, giving me his professional opinion on the health of my trees where other professionals claimed they were "already dead" and needed removing (which is clearly not true given they're still blooming and growing). I have already recommended him to fellow real estate professionals (I work in real estate, so I know a few people who would love to have the phone number of an honest and cost-effective tree professional!). If you need someone to look at your trees and give you an honest informed opinion, I highly recommend Dan at Native Tree Care. I got so many quotes from recommended local professionals before Dan and was outraged at all their prices. Dan's was the best quote and he even cleaned up after himself--something most other tree services don't do for free. I can't recommend Dan enough.
