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.

Bill and his guys were very easy to work with. They removed a dead tree and several tree branches from two other trees for me at my rental house. They have done a great job. I have to say I can’t be happier and will definitely recommend him to anyone without hesitation.

Lee removed a large tree that snapped and was leaning on a smaller tree next to it. He and his workers did the work quickly and professionally. They saved the small tree, cut the large one into logs, and even stacked them!! The area looks super clean and you couldn't tell that a big tree just came down. Lee responds quickly and I would hire him again in the future.

I had a tree fall in my yard during a windstorm. They were able to quote me with the pictures I uploaded a few and completed the job a few days later. They were there when they scheduled and completed the job within an hour! I’d highly recommend them to anyone for tree trimming or removal.

Tom communicated through every step of the process from an honest, affordable quote, to scheduling, and while on the job. We had our tree line trimmed back and a couple of smaller trees removed with all debris cut up and left on site. They went above and beyond on the original quoted work and cleaned up thoroughly after completing. Would highly recommend them to anyone looking to have work done on any trees on your property.

Alex and his team works quickly, safely, and professionally. The price was great and they kept all other plants in good shape as they removed a pine tree. Alex was out to my house a few day’s after I contacted him for the quote and a week after that for the removal. They hauled everything away and left the backyard clean. Would highly recommend and use again.

He came to cut a tree and remove the stump. The only reason why he didn't get 5 starts is because he came Friday and worked all day and didn't complete it and left branches, limbs, and such until Monday. The stump was removed a couple of weeks later but a contractor he hires. Overall good work, and would hire again!!

Elevated Tree Care was very knowledgable and helpful. They responded quickly to my request for a quote and were out within a week to do the job. We needed to remove a leaning split tree that was over 40 feet high. I had no idea how they would do it but they carefully planned and executed the project with ease. I am so thankful for their work and the fact I don't have to worry about a tree falling on my house or children any longer. And it was all done at a very affordable price!

I’ve been working with Earnest. He is extremely nice and without prompting, provided his company’s liability insurance upon first contact. When he came out to inspect the tree, he was upfront about his concerns, especially when I happened to remember my gas line runs under the tree that I want removed. He explained what could be done with the stump as it would not be safe to remove it by hand. He also asked if I wanted the job done immediately or not, which was nice as we were able to pick a time that would work well for both of us. I would gladly work with them again on future projects.

Ernest did a fantastic job. He showed me pictures of what he was going to do, and what he did. He was very punctual, and the quality of the work done was also very good. He offered his expertise on what to cut and what to leave for now. I was very much impressed. I will highly recommend him to anyone who needs his trees cut and removed, including myself as I have asked him to cut more trees for me.

Ernest did an awesome job from start to finish, he exceeded my expectations. I hired him for tree removal, the tree was dead and hanging over my house. Ernest complete the task with complete professionalism, and accuracy. He completed the work ahead of schedule and did extra as well to make sure my property was in better condition than when he came. I would hire him again and plan to in the future and would highly recommend him for others. Thank you so much Ernest .

Tom was excellent to work with. He provided a competitive proposal, great communication in scheduling the work, and best of all, provided high quality work. His team removed several large trees for us and did a great job cleaning up on their way out. We plan to use again and highly recommend him to others.

I had a small task: removing a large limb that fell into my yard and was wedged between two trees. Alex responded to my request within half an hour, was in the area, looked at the job and gave me an estimate that same afternoon (yesterday), very reasonable. He and his crew did the job today and cleaned up nicely. I am very happy with the work.

They came out just this morning to remove this fallen tree from my back yard and I literally think they left my yard cleaner than when they left! It looks absolutely spotless, great value, and very nice guys. They accidentally dented one of our lawn ornaments and took $30 off the final cost. Very honest and fair! Did the entire job very quickly too. Very happy with the results!!
