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 remove a tree stump?

Once you have a tree cut down, you’ll probably want to remove the tree stump as well. You may want the stump removed for aesthetics, the tree stump could be diseased, you might want to prevent regrowth, or you may find the roots are causing problems and need to be removed. Tree removal costs don’t always include the cost to grind out or dig out a tree stump after the tree has been felled and the trunk removed. The national average cost for stump removal ranges from $150 to $200. There are two main methods for dealing with tree stumps. In grinding, pros use a chipping machine to grind away the above-level tree stump until it sits just below the soil surface. Tree stump removal entails lifting the entire root ball of a tree out of the soil. Removing the stump will leave a hole in the ground and also take more time, labor and money than stump grinding. Here are some examples of average tree stump removal costs:

  • Stump grinding: $2-$4 per inch.
  • Tree stump removal: average of $60-$350.

The final price will depend on the stump’s size, condition, location and condition of the soil around it.

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.

Best looking tree trimming.

We had a great experience with our tree trimming! These guys are amazing! They trimmed a very large red oak tree near our electric line and it looks amazing now. I honestly was hesitant about having it trimmed out of fear it would become damaged or butchered, but I’m so glad we did! We will definitely hire them again for other trees on our lot in the future.

Joe did a great job with our tree! My grass was dying, but hopefully the tree trimming will help with our grass growing back again and help the tree grow better! He is good to work with and left the place clean and everything! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I never knew tree trimming could be such fun! They were all very friendly and knowledgeable. They told me exactly what type of trimming my trees needed and pruned in a way that not only made my trees grow in the proper direction but also kept them very healthy for years to come. I love that they didn't just come in and hack limbs. It was a very thoughtful process. I will definitely call them in for next year's pruning. Thanks guys!!!

These guys are legit. Used them to take down a tree and get rid of the stump. On time, professional, competitive pricing and most of all they got the job done right. They even trimmed up one of my other trees for me.

Joe responded quickly after I posted my job need. We agreed upon a price. I was flexible when the job could be done. I couldn't be there when tree trimming was done, but he sent me photos of completed job and I paid him via Venmo. Easy - and I will save his contact information for tree trimming needs in the future. Highly recommend. Its great for everyone when there is a clear expectation of the job, and clear delivery of done job. Mine was a simple task of trimming lower branches of a tree to improve "look" of yard. But I am completely happy

We hired Carolina’s team to trim our two palm trees. They were on time, did a great job, and even hauled off some banana tree leaves that he had used for mulch. Really quality work at a great price.

Great job. I would recommend Alonso Tree Service to anyone needing a tree trimmed. They were affordable and did a tremendous job. They cleaned up the yard afterwards. Can't express how good a job they did. I will hire them annually to clean up and thin out my tree from now on.

Jeremiah came and looked over the trees, talked with me at great length and then sent the details to Matt who provided me with a quote. On day of service the crew were very courteous, moved potted plants & furniture, trimmed the trees, removed ALL the debris, replaced all the pots and the furniture. VERY satisfied!

Trimming two live oak trees and raising the canopy to eight feet above the sidewalk. Submitted a prompt bid, scheduled quickly and completed the job with professionalism. Cleaned up all removed branches and leaves and hauled them away. I will definitely use Patino Tree Service again and highly recommend them.

Lewis and his team did a great job. They removed 7 large trees (3 oaks, 1 plum, 1 magnolia, 2 holly), and ground down the stumps. My husband also took the opportunity to remove 7 smaller shrubs and have the neighbor's tree trimmed. Lewis hauled away all the debris. It took a day and a half. The yard looks great!

Amazing service! They gave me a quote and got the job done within 1 hour. Extremely fast! They pruned, trimmed, raised the canopies of our two live oak trees higher, hauled the branches, and also raked and cleaned the lawn of debris. They even shaved off the tiny baby branches sprouting on the trees, very detail-oriented. Here are before and after pics, and well as in-progress pics.

I had a good experience with this company. The tree was trimmed extremely well, and the workers tweaked it until I was completely satisfied. I ended up having them do some fairly extensive landscape work when they came, and they also did a very good job with that as well. I would certainly use this company again, and I’m sure I will in future projects.

This is the second time we’ve hired Lewis and his guys to do work in our yard. He arrived on time with a team of six guys, and they got right to work. Lewis knows his business. He trimmed three large trees and removed a large stump, all in a little over an hour. I suggested that one tree may be sick and need to be cut down. He showed me what I needed to do to take of it. The team did a great job cleaning up the property and hauling the debris away. I wouldn’t hesitate to give Lewis the highest recommendation.

Best Tree Removal Service HANDS down. I contacted several companies and they all tried to upsell me something. This company was amazing because he did exactly what I wanted & it was a really good price! I felt like I got a deal & they got the job done extremely quick. They left and cleaned up you wouldn’t even have known they were here. My front yard looks nice and clean now. Will call them over and over when I need my trees trimmed back etc. Will refer to all my friends.

It was great working with these guys. They came, gave an estimate and did the work same day. Not only did they remove the tree we needed done, they also gave suggestions on other things that might help. I had them remove some trees from the back that also were not appealing and trimmed everything. They were great to work with, Bert communicative and were quick. I will definitely use them again since I’ll need more work done. I can’t say enough nice things about working with them. Most pleasant experience I have had on a long time. Thanks for your quick and hard work at a reasonable price.

Mr. Hernandez was very quick to respond to my request and my subsequent questions regarding the service and his fees. His quote was reasonable and closer to my budget given the job at hand. His crew did a great job from start to finish and were very professional. All limbs, leaves, etc were cleaned thoroughly. They even noticed a few smaller trees that needed trimming (not part of the quote) and did those w/o extra costs. I highly recommend this business.
