Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

Carlos was very prompt while communicating with him before the job, and they arrived at my house right on time, and had my trees trimmed in no time. They look so much better, and they hauled away all of the debris, and my driveway was cleaner than when they arrived. They trimmed three trees for the price I had previously had one trimmed for, so great value! Great job for a great price!

I had a tree that had died and needed to be removed. The thought of doing it myself and spending hours on the work along did not thrill me which lead me to this company. They gave a really impressive quote and completed their work within 2 hours (removing the dead tree, trimming a few other trees, and disposal as well). I'm definitely coming back to these guys for future work.

I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Garcia's Professional Tree Service!!! Bryan with Garcia's Professional Tree Service came by and visited my house the same day, gave me an estimate and we scheduled the service for the following day. The staff were very professional and did an excellent job cutting down and trimming the trees and hauling away the branches that were cut. We will definitely hire them again

The guys with Hollow Tree Service did a GREAT job at a very reasonable rate. I had 2 50+ foot trees that had fallen on my house so they came out and gave me an estimate and were at my house the next day at 8:00am and were done by 6:00. They painstakingly remove the trees from my 3 week old new roof and also trimmed up some other trees for me at no additional cost. I will be calling them back to remove some other trees on my property and will gladly recommend them to my friends and neighbors. Give them a call you won't be sorry. Paul

We will definitely contact Green Cares again in the future if we ever have any tree issues. They arrived at 6pm at our request and cut and removed a palm tree, large tree on curbside and also trimmed the oak in our backyard and did a fantastic job. They not only did this work but also cleaned up the yard and street and it looked fantastic, all in 1 1/2 hours. Supervisor Manuel was on hand and complimented his employees on a job well done and ensured that we were satisfied with his company. HIGHLY RECOMMEND this company as they are an Elite Group of professionals to all those looking for very reasonable tree service. Thank You BK Missouri City

All I can say is Great Job! Chris is a professional & honest business person. His bid beat the other 3 contractors I had received estimates & was much better at describing exactly what they would do. He provided me the insurance certificate immediately after accepting his bid. Chris's crew removed 4 pine trees (2 very large) in our back yard, including grinding all the stumps. Also, at my request they removed vines & branches from another tree. The yard & driveway were cleaned up so well, it was like they were never here. I would recommend Arbor Care Professionals for any of your tree trimming or removal needs.

Bad experience with this company. After they agreed to a date & time to trim 2 palms trees, they cane to the job site & stated the winds were too high for them to do the job. In actuality, they didn’t have the right equipment or knowledge to do the job safely. They were also scheduled to cut branches from an ash tree at another property we own. They cut a few low hanging branches & left them at the job site. They didn’t cut the large branches that were in the contract & the contract also stated that all cut branches were to be removed from the job site. They abandoned the job & I had to hire another company that performed the agreed tasks with ease & professionalism.
