When we bought our house 3 years ago, we knew the 50+ foot maple tree in the back was going to need to be removed eventually. Over the years it had been cut away from the power lines by the power company, making it heavy on one side and leaning towards the house. Every time a storm came through, I was nervous that it would finally give in to gravity and we’d have a bigger problem. We got lucky that it never damaged out property, but recently noticed that it had areas of decay near the base of the trunk. One hollow was so deep I could stick a branch into it over two feet (did I mention this tree was massive?). Once we realized this hole was there, I knew the tree removal project needed to be moved to the top of our to-do list for our home’s safety. I started calling companies in the beginning of October and called four or five that took all my information and never got back to me. It was so frustrating but I wanted this project done before winter hit our area. I decided to give Thumbtack a try and Stumpbusters was one of three companies that responded to my request. Steve, the owner, came out to give us an estimate and was realistic about the challenges of the job: power lines, very small back yard, massive tree, limited access. He seemed knowledgeable, experienced and professional, gave us a competitive estimate and a few days later we decided to hire his company for the job. He worked with my schedule and the weather to set a date for the work to be done and was even willing to help me take down a panel of fence for access to the back yard since my fiancé was scheduled to be out of town. His crew arrived early, they had a guy up in the tree before I knew it and were roping and dropping pieces in no time. The weather was cold and drizzly, but they kept a steady work pace. Although they didn’t need it, I checked on them occasionally, just to make sure they didn’t need anything and to see the progress out of curiosity. When they got to the base of the tree, I was shocked to see how much of it was hollow and rotten. One of the crew pointed out a stress fracture and suspected that if the tree had fallen, which was just a matter of time, it would have done so on our house. I felt like I had dodged a bullet. They also trimmed back another tree so it was not hanging over our house as much. Throughout their work on the trees they functioned very well as a team, professional yet relaxed and confident in their work. I watched as if witnessing an incredible magic trick while my problem tree disappeared. They removed all large debris and ground the stump to fluffy piles of sawdust. Despite a very tight workspace, they did not damage the house or fence and the only evidence was the ruts left by the bobcat, which is understandable since it rained a day or two before. They cleaned up well after themselves, taking special care to remove all evidence of having used my neighbor’s yard for access to my yard. They even got rid of the mess in the street from the chipper. All of this in a day’s work! When they were done, I was so pleased with the quality of the work and the weight that had been lifted by having this problem tree removed. I’m so excited about going into winter without worrying about the tree if we get a snowstorm; now I can enjoy the snow worry free! Stumpbusters did a quality job and gave me peace of mind. I would not hesitate to hire them again for any tree related needs and have full confidence in recommending them to others.

My front lawn was a big mound with the remains of an old pine tree in the middle. Land levelers removed the old stump and decaying root system and corrected the grade with respect to the sidewalk and driveway. Finally seeded for a new lawn. All done in a timely manner.

All I can say about this company is WOW!!!! I have never been more impressed with a company I have hired. We had some construction waste to get rid of in Sandbridge in Virginia Beach. Sunnyside was the first to respond, but when I saw they are from Smithfield, VA I contacted another company since we are 1 1/2 hours away. Believe it or not, they contacted me and said they would be here in a few hours. Sure enough, they came and were the most pleasant guys and worked very quickly to remove our junk. I was amazed at the positive attitudes and work ethics, so I have already hired them again to come cut down a tree! Literally, don't get any other quotes, go with Sunnyside Landscaping for anything you need done around your house! Truly honest guys that work hard.

Skyler reached out to me very quickly after submitting my job. He said he would be at my house at 8 to pull weeds and when I looked outside at 7:57, he was already at work pulling them. He was very polite and professional and more importantly, he did a great job and got every last weed out of my garden. I’ll definitely hire him again

I contacted them at an extremely busy time this Spring due to storms and rainy weather, to grind stumps of trees we had removed before the storms began. Received a return call quickly& appreciated the forthright explanation expressing care for my property, I.e., they didn’t want their heavy machine to tear up my yard in the wet weather. As soon as things dried up a bit, they were here and did not only the large stumps. but several small ones. They were careful in the established beds, too. Plus being easy to deal with and professional, their pricing is very reasonable! I have suggested th to others and will use them again!

Not prepared to remove cuttings. Cut too much...tree may not survive. This might be a better company for tree removal not trimming. They cleaned up the site well.

Jay from A Tree MD really impressed me with his tree knowledge and skills. I had three overgrown Bradford Pears that he crowned reduced, which was a term he explained to me. They look amazing and it really made my front yard look 100 times better. Thank you Jay.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
