Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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

The best time of year to trim deciduous trees in Fort Worth is late fall or winter. This is because most trees go dormant during the cold months. By the time spring comes, they have recovered and are ready to sprout new limbs, leaves or flowers. Trimming during the warm months can tax the tree too heavily, making it susceptible to fungi and insects — both of which can hinder its growth. 

However, it’s okay to trim your tree at any time of the year if it’s damaged or dying — that’s especially true if it’s a safety hazard. And some tree species may need to get pruned or trimmed before or after the winter and fall seasons.

Consult with a tree expert to confirm the best time of year to trim your trees. Contact the best tree trimming professionals in Fort Worth today.

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. 

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.

Stan removed a huge branch that had broke off my tree and landed on the fence. He came out the same day, gave me a estimate, and scheduled my appointment for the following Monday. Stan came out early Monday morning removed the huge branch off my fence with no further damage to the fence. Cut and removed the branch did a fantastic job with clean up. I will be using him again in the near future for more tree & fence work! I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs tree work.

Team did an excellent job at a good price. Daniel and team showed up on time and spent the day cutting and removing several trees. The job was complicated as one of the trees crossed over the neighbors carport and near electrical wires. As I said, they did an excellent job with the removal and cleaned up. I highly recommend City Wide, you will be very satisfied.

Crest did a wonderful job with my trees! I had two trees removed, and Crest was able to ground the stumps down to the point where I wasn’t able to tell that trees had even been there. Also, they were able to beautifully trim and thin my large elm tree in my front yard. This was no hack and whack job! Finally, the crew cleaned up my yard so well that the only the only evidence that Crest had been there was the fact that two trees were gone. I’m very pleased and would hire them again in a second!

I had 8 trees removed, some in very tricky spots, 6 stumps ground, and the remaining 4 trees trimmed to be healthy. Mr. Salgado and his entire crew were punctual, professional, respectful, careful, and did excellent work. I couldn't have asked for better. The price was very competitive with the other tree services I interviewed and given the level of service I received, I think I got a bargain. A+ would recommend.

Stan is very responsive when communicating with me on the app. He and his crew did a great job removing our crepe myrtles. They were in and out of here in no time and left our patio clean like they hadn’t even removed 6 full trees. I will definitely use his services again and recommend him to family and friends.

I am so happy I went with Crest for my tree trimming/removal project. They responded same-day to my request and Mr. Calkins was quick to respond to my messages. He was able to give me a very reasonable quote over the phone with pictures. He was initially able to do my project same day but I answered too late. However, he was still able to get me in on Monday (I requested on Thursday) and him and his team did a beautiful job. They also removed and hauled away this massive, overgrown plant I wasn't able to afford doing due to budgeting, free of cost! Payment was easy and overall, I am very satisfied with their work. I would recommend their services to anyone. Detailed work: Removed 20 ft tall free w/ stump grind, stump grind and ground leveling, large tree trim and raise.
