Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

When is the best time of year to trim trees in Dallas?

In Dallas, it’s best to trim your deciduous trees in winter. This is the time period when trees go dormant, and they have time to recover before their spring growth spurt.

Trimming after spring can overtax the tree and make it difficult for it to have enough energy to get through the season. It can also make it vulnerable to fungal and insect infestations. Oak trees, in particular, should not be pruned during the springtime in Dallas to avoid the spread of oak wilt.

There are a few instances where it might be best to trim and prune your trees at any time of year. For example, if your tree is damaged and poses a safety hazard, you can trim it at any time. And, some tree species might need to be trimmed before or after winter.

Consult with the best tree trimming professionals in Dallas to determine the best time to trim and prune your trees.

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.

The team at R&G Tree Trimming responded to my request to survey, quote, and remove a dangerous tree all within 18 hours of me reaching out to them. They offered a fair quote, did prompt and safe work, and completely cleaned up the removed tree. These guys were able to treat this job with urgency, as I didn’t want this tree to be compromised by this significant winter storm. I definitely recommend contacting them with any tree removal/trimming work you may have to get a quote.

Alonso Tree Service did a great job! They were responsive and punctual, and they handled with care and a very complicated property with multiple trees and bushes that needed various levels of trimming and removal. We plan to use Alonso Tree Service for all future tree and brush maintenance.

Misael and his team did a great job on our tree removal and trimming needs for an affordable price. He came to give us an in person estimate very quickly, and also finished the actual work really quickly once we hired him. We had him remove 2 large trees, which both required him to remove and put back sections of our fence. 1 of the trees was growing close to our house, requiring his team to be very careful. He told us when the city pick up would be, and has prepared everything for us just in time for the pick up. We highly recommend Hernandez Tree Services!

A wonderful company to work with. Lewis was so nice, professional, personable and accommodating. His team was awesome - delightful, efficient and great quality work. They even helped with moving things out of the way to remove my tree, cut some wood for the fireplace and stacked it in a container for me, cleaned up my patio after removing a huge tree and made sure everything was put back where it was found. I will definitely keep this business card very handy for when I need any kind of work they do done again. I highly recommend Hernandez Tree Service.

Hernandez Tree Experts were very responsive in assisting with removing 3 very large branches over the power line to our house. Lewis was very accommodating and punctual when we discussed what was needed. His team was able to complete the job in a timely manner and haul all the debris. They cleaned up after they were finished and made sure I was satisfied with the work prior to leaving. I’d highly recommend their service to anyone needing pruning and/or tree trimming/removal.

Charlie was excellent with communication and scheduling. He provided a quote and options for a tree removal and fence repair. His rates appear to be lower then most and he gets the job done. Would definitely hire again and highest recommendation.

Cannot say enough great things about Alex and his tree service. His team worked very quickly to go above and beyond what I was looking for in removing one very large tree and numerous other large limbs, branches, and brush around the house. They completed the work in an efficient manner leaving zero trace of debris and exceeded my expectations - highly recommend their service and will use again in the future!

Alex responded almost immediately and was able to come by personally and give me a very reasonable quote that night on a very large tree trim, 3 crepe myrtle trimmings, and multiple small weed tree removals. His crew showed up exactly when scheduled and had the whole job completed including cleanup within 2 hours. They listened to my preferences and completed the job exactly as requested. I highly recommend calling Alex !

Alex and his crew did a phenomenal job taking down a huge oak that died. After posting to get help Alex responded immediately. He came out same day within a couple hours. Pricing was in range on what I was anticipating and boom they stated Monday (quote was Friday). The huge oak was taken down and roots removed all within 2.5 hrs! They also cleaned up another oak trees branches (trimmed and cut). Alex is a new business owner and definitely knows about customer service and the work shows how much he cares. Reach out to Alex first you won’t regret it. He is fair with pricing and you won’t need to negotiate or interview other tree cutters - which to me saves a lot of time and stress.

Let me start by saying that I was contacted the same day I put the request in, which was on the weekend. They were out as soon as they could Monday, after they finished another job. Not only did they trim the three trees that I had requested, they also removed some saplings along the side of the house caused by rogue squirrels, blew the leaves and branches off my roof, and left the yard in far cleaner than when they started. All this, and they did it quick too. I would hire these guys again in a heartbeat.

Within 30 minutes of requesting a quote, Lewis and his team showed up to give me an estimate. He pointed all issues he could find, some of which we hadn't even noticed, and was ready and willing to tackle as much as he could within our budget. Once we agreed on a quote, they got to work right away. Pretty immediately after they started, my husband went to lunch with a buddy. During that time, they went around the whole property cutting away every branch that was touching our roof, did an amazing job trimming a huge tree in our back yard, removed two trees and a large bush, trimmed several other large crepe myrtles in the back, completely removed 3 dead shrubs, ground all the stumps, cleaned up and hauled everything away before my even husband returned from lunch. Needless to say, my husband was stunned. Lewis was incredibly warm and friendly. His team was very quick, efficient, and clearly knew what they were doing. I will definitely be hiring them again. The only con is that there is a lot more light coming into my house, so I can now see just how messy it is. I will have to invest in curtains.
