Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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.

Is it worth it to hire a professional tree trimming service?

Hiring a professional tree trimming service near you can be worth the cost. This job requires the use of specialized equipment and involves a high degree of risk for inexperienced operators.

Safety is a major reason why you might want to avoid performing this task yourself. Another factor is time. Tree trimming services have their own equipment and tools that allow them to finish the job quickly. 

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.

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. 

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. 

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.

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.

Earl's Tree Service was hired to trim two trees. They called before they arrived and began working on time. They were efficient but careful to remove only what was necessary and requested. They made sure the job performed was satisfactory and then hauled all trimmings and debris away. The quote for a job this large was very reasonable and will contact Earl's Tree Service for an future tree trimming needs.

From initial contact to completion, Legacy Tree Trimming was completely professional and terrific. I contacted a total of four companies. Legacy was by far the best communicator, kept their appointments, and met and exceeded all my expectations. Jonatan and his father worked together on the trees and even gave me some great tips on the landscaping. I absolutely recommend them for anyone looking for tree trimming. Thanks, Legacy.

Thanks

Juan and his crew arrived on time, and they did a great professional job with trimming frozen tree branches on top of my roof. They also gave a reasonable estimate to remove entirely fallen tree and it’s root! I would certainly recommend this company!

Jose responded quickly to my request for a quote, gave me a great price, and came the following day, with a crew, to do the job. They trimmed six trees, cleaned up, and were done in two and a half hours. I was very impressed with their efficiency, and friendliness. Highly recommend him for tree services.

This company provided accurate, affordable, friendly and professional service. The owner (Guadalupe) and his wife responded to my initial request for an estimate the same day. When they arrived on site, they assessed what was needed and provided a reasonable estimate within 5 minutes. The service appointment was scheduled for two days later. On the day of service, they cut down one tree, trimmed two trees, and removed all debris from the premises within 2.5 hours. I will definitely use Lupe’s Tree Service for future tree services.

This was our first time hiring a pro for a tree trim. Ismael did a fantastic job. He was on time and his attention to detail was outstanding. Our tree looks beautiful, our fence line is perfect, and he was very meticulous in his clean-up. Above all, he was professional and communicated very well. Will definitely hire him again no question.

I hired Miguel with Angel Tree Service to trim my Sego Palms and hang bird deflectors on a tree above my patio furniture to discourage them from roosting and popping on my patio furniture. He did an excellent job, was responsive to my requests, on time and very professional. I highly recommend him and will hire him again when I need anything else.

Miguel and crew came out to clean up, trim, crown and manicure my trees. The lot looks very beautiful now and very manicured. Miguel was easy to communicate with, and performed some extra yard work in the process proactively. I will definitely be hiring Miguel again!

Very happy with the service I received! Samuel was very responsive with communication. He and his crew were polite, quick and all 3 were wearing masks. :) The price for the trimming and removal was very comparable to other estimates I received, but he had the best price of what I was looking to pay. My trees look amazing, they were trimmed exactly how I wanted them. I definitely recommend this company and I will use him again in the future.

I reached out on Sunday evening and Jose responded within the hour. We set a time for the next day (LaborDay) to come out and give me a quote. He arrived and gave me a fair price so we moved ahead with the project. He and his team had 3 trees trimmed and one cut completely down within 2hr of arrival! They did a fantastic job of cleaning up and left me with beautifully manicured trees and I am very happy with the work!

Jose responded very quickly to my request for trimming four trees. He was very knowledgeable which gave me the confidence to go forward with the work, especially after he gave me a very reasonable price. The work was completed satisfactory and he cleaned up well once done. I would definitely use him again.

I contacted Jose via Thumbtack and he responded last immediately to my inquiry. He showed the next day with his team. He was very professional, had great energy, walked through the project thoroughly. When all was said and done Jose and his team took a damaged tree line (from Snow-Vid) and trimmed the canopies, cleanup and more. Ironically, we realized that I had used Jose before - when I first moved into my home a few years ago. I'll definitely use him again.
