I hired Paul Hoffman to prune badly overgrown garden. He did an absolutely wonderful job, perfect in every way. He brought his own landscaping equipment and two helpers and they got the job better than I would ever have believed possible. The price was fair, and exactly what he estimated. This landscaping service is too good to be true. I can't believe I found them through an app. I am completely thrilled!

Lucus Tree & Landscaping provided excellent service at a reasonable price. The company trimmed a large Silver Maple in the backyard completing the job within 2 hours after the bid. Due to significant dead growth and steep inclines, maneuvering through the job was difficult. From start to finish, the team was skilled and professional. I would hire the team for future projects and have no problem recommending them to friends and family.

Franks Tree Service_Francisco Rivera id a great job here on Kimberly Way in Winchester Va. In 2 days around a parking lot full off cars they completed the pruning of 36 25 foot tall trees and the complete removal of one. They did exactly what they were asked to do and the way we wanted it done without question in a very timely manor. We had thousands of starlings craping all over every thing and was getting dangerous for children to be outside playing so Francisco Rivera was Johnny on the spot and Thank You Men for being so careful around the children and cars.

Pruning was a little more aggressive than I anticipated, but I guess it is okay. Crew was friendly and prompt.

Spending time over the last few yeas with our grandchildren & parents while working 50+ hours a week, my yard work (garden beds, pruning, etc.) had been neglected. The Garden Nanny, LLC came in and listened to what I wanted the yard to look like, developed & executed a plan. We're so pleased we set up a maintenance schedule so the yard & beds don't turn into a jungle again.

Nature's Grace Land & Tree

Nature's Grace was not only an incredible contractor but very competitive with their pricing. They gave me several different pricing options. The one we chose was to donate the wood from our trees to churches, to be given to members in need of heat in the winter. Ryan contacted the church and had people loading the wood while they were cutting it down. This not only helped the church members but it saved me $800.00 to go with this option. I've never had a contractor have such a passion for their work and helping others at the same time. I highly recommend Nature's Grace to anyone in need of tree work or landscaping. Now we can sleep well not worrying if our trees will fall into our house during a storm. Thank you for an excellent job.

Ms. Dollins did spring clean-up at Gordon-Barbour Elementary School last year. She went above and beyond what I had expected. Her and her crew pruned trees, took out weeds from our flower beds, layed down mulch and edged our sidewalks. The grounds looked beautiful. Ms. Dollins is very meticulous about her work and took personal pride in doing a quality job. I would highly recommend her landscaping for any business or residential customers.

Jason LaRose cared for my 100-year old oak tree by removing deadwood, cutting back branches to promote healthy growth, and doing very artful "vista pruning" to enhance my enjoyment of sunrises! He also shared with me a lot of information (from an arborist's point of view) about trees, leaves, grass, and the relationships among them. He arrived on the previously scheduled date at the expected time, and accomplished the project as promised.

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 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 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.

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 cut down a massive tree?

If you have to remove a big, beautiful tree from your property, you’ll definitely need an arborist. Cutting down a massive tree without the proper tools or training can lead to major property damage or injury. A huge tree may need to be removed if it is diseased or dying and poses a safety risk, has suffered a blow from a storm and isn’t safe, or is growing into your home, your home’s foundation, your septic system, or your power lines. Removal costs for such large trees will depend on the tree’s height, diameter, and relative safety and accessibility, as well as whether you also need the felled tree and stump removed. The bare minimum for removal of a tree over 75 or 80 feet would be $1,000. This may not include tree quartering and removal or stump grinding. Stump grinding ranges on average from $2 to $4 per inch of the stump’s diameter. There is no set price as each situation is unique, so it’s always best to have an arborist give you a quote and detail exactly which services are included in the price.
