Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

Is it worth it to hire a professional tree trimming service?

Hiring a professional tree trimming service near you can be worth the cost. This job requires the use of specialized equipment and involves a high degree of risk for inexperienced operators.

Safety is a major reason why you might want to avoid performing this task yourself. Another factor is time. Tree trimming services have their own equipment and tools that allow them to finish the job quickly. 

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.

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. 

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. 

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.

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.

I was enthusiastic about having Peters team trim my large tree and found their bid very competitive. I hired them because of this and all their great reviews. They came to my house cut six low branches in 1-2 hours. I hey did not trim, ask or address the dead branches higher up in the tree and drug the limbs down my garden bank. Peter followed up and we figured out that issue. However, they trimmed the limbs over my deck and didn’t tell me that months following trimmings like this sap would likely be dripping all over my deck, grill and getting all over my daughters feet. I feel that for tree trimmers these guys went fast and didn’t communicate

Arbor Vision Tree Service did an excellent job trimming several large overgrown Douglas Fir trees as well as a large Maple tree at my home in Southeast Portland. Greg the owner came over to survey the trees and then provided a customized and reasonable estimate based on the amount of work that was needed, as well as answering several questions I had. We set a date for the work to be done that fit my schedule and Greg and his team performed the work as described with a high degree of quality and regard for the property and for the neighboring properties close by. The site was well-cleared after the work, including the yard and areas of the roof that were in the shadow of the trees that over hung them. I will be contacting Arbor Vision Tree Service in the future with any other needs I have for trimming or tree removal, as their service and the value of their work are superb. Thank you Greg!

Angel and his crew were top notch. They took down 3 overgrown Douglas fur trees handily with care and precision. Also trimmed 2 plum trees and 1 maple tree. They picked up and cleaned up all the debris and hauled everything away. Will not hesitate to call them again if I need more work done.

We recently moved into a house full of trees. It needed heavy trimming. Julian and his men are so effective and trained. They trimmed close to 15 trees that are 20 feet high in few hours. They were very professional. Julian gave a fair yet competitive price and very responsive to text and call. I will definitely work with them in the future. I’m beyond impressed by their quality of work and professionalism! Thanks Julian

NW Tree Work really seemed to be passionate about what they do. From start to finish, bid, work, and clean up it was just a few days. They were on time very curtious to us and our neighbors. We had a very large cherry trimmed in our back yard. It was not the easiest place to get to but they did a fantastic job! It looks better than expected! In addition we had two medium sized trees trimmed in the front yard. They look so much better! Lots of compliments from neighbors. When we need tree work done in the future we will be calling NW Tree Work. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing tree work of any kind done!

T&S Tree Services are a top notch company. I hired them to trim our gigantic laurel hedge on the side of the yard. I received a quote and the team started on the job the very next day. This behemoth project was completed in one day and looks amazing. I was so impressed with how hard and efficiently they worked. And they did the job at a competitive price. Definitely hiring T&S again for any other tree trimming or landscaping projects I might have.
