Two trees were removed, 4 were trimmed. That was all done very well. Large 4 foot sections were left behind and I had to spray pruning seal on a number of places where limbs were trimmed.

Trim tree limbs back off of neighbors property line and fence line. The guys did a fantastic job cutting and hauling to the street. I would like for them to come back in the fall/spring for pruning.

First time using Thumbtack and was very happy with result. S&R was responded quickly to my post. Professional guys starting out on their own, they clearly know their trade. Showed up on time, knew their shrubs\what to do, and hired on the spot. Nothing nicer than coming home and the job is done & much better than I would have preformed it myself. Pruned shrubbery around home, along with several other areas on my property, cleaned up after, completed the job in timely manner - could not ask for more. I will be using them again.

Arbor Brothers did a wonderful job pruning the tops of some trees in my yard. Jeff also helped salvage my dying willow tree by cutting off dead limbs and teaching me how to protect the rest of the tree from mold/fungus. The crew is amazing to work with and very knowledgeable. I will definitely use Arbor Brothers for all of my future tree care needs.

They listen to your concerns about the work to be done, and work with you to get the results. I think their price is reasonable and the value is good. I have had a maple tree they have worked on for years to properly trim the branches, and still leave plenty of coverage, as I have asked.

Arrived within 24 hours of when I contacted them to complete the project. Stump grinding was done very quickly. Matt had some great ideas for what to do with the mulch and what type of tree to plant as a replacement for the one we had to take down. Chesapeake Stump Grinding and Lawn Care was very professional and reasonably priced. I plan to use them again for other lawn care needs, ie. planting and pruning the new tree. I highly recommend them.

Jerry was the perfect choice! He was the first to respond, no pressure/no rush on hiring, professional at all times, and most importantly did an AMAZING job. We had a single limb that needed to be cut down after a storm, but wanted a professional opinion on trimming/pruning our other larger trees at the same time. He was knowledgable and considered our desires (which weren't exactly clear or decisive - that's why we needed a pro). Jerry and his team cleaned our property up to pristine condition!! I am beyond happy with his work. Great communication, on-time, professional, best/most reasonable quote, and personable. He did exactly what was agreed upon. I can't find the words for how satisfied I am with the way everything turned out! Hire him...you will not regret it!!! We have already hired him for another project and I'm looking for anything else I can hire him to do for us!!! Thanks Jerry & Co!!!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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 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 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.
