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 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.

Apo and his crew did a great job removing our tree. They also cleaned up very well. I got 5 bids and they were one of the lowest. They also went beyond and removed the ivy that caused or tree to die. I would recommend them for tree removal.

They did a really good job on trimming our trees. I feel the price was a little high. The bid had them removing a tree, but we decided not to get it removed. The price stayed the same.

Everett was great to work with. The tree I needed him to remove was precariously placed on another tree and fence. Everett was able to remove it safely and with minimal damage to the fence. He was on time and was willing to work with my schedule. I definitely will recommend to neighbors and family.

I had two big trees blown down from a storm. I got several bids for removing the two trees and Kalua gave me the best price. He did an amazing job. He even helped to save a nest of five baby birds by making a little tree house from the broken branch. He also removed and hauled a small dead tree in my back yard for free. He is licensed and professional. Definitely recommend Kalua for tree services.

Kalua came out quickly to give me a bid for removing 4 trees in my yard. He worked quickly to get them removed and did a great job cleaning up. Aside from some sawdust there was no evidence of the tree removal process. He is coming back in a few days to grind the stumps down as well. Very pleased with the service

I had a great experience with Zack and his team. They were easy to work with, friendly, and got the job done quickly and well. I had 4 trees trimmed, one tree removed, and some of my sod removed. Everything looks MUCH better. And I was impressed by how well they cleaned up. Would definitely recommend!

I highly recommend Apo and his team. He shaped my plum tree in the front yard with precision and artistry, removed a tree and a bush and trimmed a second chanticleer pear tree in the back. He was efficient, courteous and his fees are very reasonable. I would hire him again.

They were very professional and did a fantastic job! We had a giant dead tree and they made short work of it. If you need a tree to be removed, don’t walk but run to do business with them! I can’t recommend them enough!

Apo and his team did a fabulous job removing two HUGE cottonwood trees from my yard. His team of 6 men worked very efficiently to cut these trees down and remove all the debris, and left me a neatly stacked pile of wood for our fireplace. Would highly recommend their services and would use them again. Marla C.

Miti Tree Service as very prompt and quick to respond. They showed up fast and worked hard to trim my two very large trees. However, the quality of work was somewhat lacking as trimming left many large stubs sticking out and some large broken branches were left untrimmed. I am unsure of their expertise in tree trimming. I would consider this company for tree removal, but be careful with tree trimming.

Supreme Tree trimmed, topped and removed trees for us. Apo, Marki & Henry are a skilled crew who focused on getting the job completed to our perfect satisfaction. These men are hard working professionals! Supreme Tree & Landscaping exceeded our expectations. We already scheduled Supreme for spring! We highly recommend them.

We used Neil's tree service to trim a tree in our backyard. We got estimates from several companies. We had one company tell us to remove the tree for $1800! I almost gave up the trimming the tree, until we found Neil. He was very professional ,gave us common sense options, very knowledgeable. We will definitely use Neil's tree service again. I recommend you call Neil's before any other tree maintenance company .
