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.

Reviews for Alexandria tree trimming professionals

Trimmed trees well. There was more debris left than I thought there would be. Even some in the trees that we will need to wait for the wind to bring down, but the trimming was done on time and Ryon was very responsive to my request.

I contacted a bunch of tree removal companies for estimates on a) removing a dead cherry tree and cutting it into sections for firewood, b) trimming a pine & oak to get the branches up and away from power lines, and c) trimming a sick maple to help its health (vice removing it if possible) and keep it away from the house. Edwin gave me good advice and a low price in comparison. Though he wasn’t the lowest price, his professionalism, knowledge, and advice on maintaining the health of the tree was what steered us to select him for the work. His crew did a great job.

Homero and his team are efficient and reliable. They trimmed 3 trees for us; did a great job, were very fast and cleaned up carefully. I was impressed by how capable and resourceful they were.

This company is so unprofessional! They made appointments to trim my tree Wednesday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, and never kept any of them. They complained that they couldn't do tree trimming on Thursday because it was raining, then showed up on the one day (Thursday) that we never had an appointment. In the rain! I asked them to come back in dry weather on the appointed day. They postponed that appointment, and the next. I can't comment on the quality of their work, because they never did any. The last thing I heard was that they would get back to me soon. I'm still waiting.

Gutierrez Enterprise did a FANTASTIC job for us! They removed 2 large trees, 2 small trees and trimmed back part of our canopy at a great price and in record time! The team worked together effectively and efficiently like a well oiled machine and were very friendly and professional in the process. They were responsive with a quick estimate and started work the next day! We definitely recommend them and will be calling them in the future for all of our outdoor needs!

I highly recommend Natural Edge. In the process of selling my house, the buyers requested that we trim branches off one of our trees. I was anxious to get the work done in time for closing, but we got that request late on a Friday afternoon and I was struggling to locate people to do the job. Natural Edge sent someone out Friday around 5, about an hour after I contacted them to give an estimate on the job. They came and did the job on Monday. They were fast and professional with the job. I was also very pleased with the way they handled the discovery of a hollow portion of the tree. Rather than take the portion off entirely, or cut the tree down, they recommended plugging the hollow portion to prevent water from getting in and causing rot. This saved us money and allowed us to keep a large older tree in the back yard. I was very satisfied with their work and would not hesitate to recommend Natural Edge for any job: large or small.

I was really impressed with the job those guys did for me. They cut 4 large trees and trimmed another 4 in less than 2 hrs. This is not a small business where two guys show up in a pickup truck. They came in different trucks with specialized equipment. The price is unbeatable and work quality was more than great. They cleaned up after themselves and even our neighbors where impressed with them. If I could give 10 stars. I would. I don’t think that I have been so satisfied with a contractor before.
