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.

Mario promptly contacted me and came out to give an estimate on trimming a tree. He did the work as agreed in a very professional manner. My wife wanted a bit more trimming and Mario completed it to her satisfaction. I highly recommend Highland Tree Services!

We needed to remove a Blue Spruce former Christmas tree that a previous owner had planted in a bad location as well as trim back a cherry tree that had grown a ton in the last few years. Bill responded quickly and came out and gave a quick estimate that was very fair and advised me about the best approach to trim the cherry tree with an eye for the tree's health going forward. And then he had it done over the following weekend. Amazingly fast and excellent work. Will definitely hire again.

Used the service for removal of three ~30ft trees. They were punctual, pleasant and removed all 3 trees within a few hours. They dug out the stumps by hand thoroughly. In addition they also trimmed some other trees and did a nice job. I would recommend them and would use the again myself.

Working with George and his team at The Honest Arborist made the decision trim a series of tricky trees. Three things stood out for us with working with this company: 1) Their small size meant George was hands-on and friendly, with plenty of communication. 2) They were prompt and on time, and 3) They wanted to be sure we were happy before they packed up, cleaned-up and left. If you're looking for a tree trimmer, and since the trees we trimmed were on neighbors properties, and a person who communicates well and offers terrific value, call The Honest Arborist.

Five stars. The team came out with a very competitive rate to trim a large over grown cherry tree. The team was very professional. They hauled away all the trimmings and did a great job cleaning up all debris. I will call Highland for my next project.

Great! Mario was perfectly on time, very nice and professional. His team did a perfect job thinning out an overgrown cherry tree and kept it healthy and shady. His team found a few other bushes and trees to trim up too. The team exceeded expectations. Thanks!!

We needed our two fruit trees trimmed. I contacted four companies, Highland was the only one to provide a written estimate, as well as provide insightful feedback about the trees themselves (structure, what exactly needed trimming etc). They came on time and were quick and efficient sticking to their written estimate. Additional post work feedback (indication this should be done again in about 3 years) lead me to believe they are providing actual insights, not just looking for a repeat job.

My neighbor and I had Luisiana Tree Service come and trim some very tall and very overgrown trees along our property line. They came out quickly for an estimate, and they were able to complete the work later that week. We are very happy with the results, and we would certainly use them again!

Can’t say enough good about George! He took out holly, trimmed laurel, fruit trees and limbed our vine maples to avoid the electrical wires. We’ll call him again!

Ryan and his crew were very friendly and did a great job. They removed 12 trees and trimmed another 6. Ryan was quick to respond and get the project scheduled and completed. Pricing was very reasonable. I would definitely hire them again or recommend to friends.

Don came to give me an estimate and was extremely professional, knowledgeable and answered all my questions. In addition to a competitive estimate, their crew was remarkable. Robert was extremely attentive, and the guys did exactly what they promised, and more. Couldn’t be happier with the trimming work they did on Celeste, my massive and beautiful tree. Would hire again in a heartbeat!

Fausto and crew were an absolute pleasure to do business with on a recent tree trimming job. I got a response and bid within minutes of inquiring and job was done the same day. The crew was extremely professional and personable and did a great job. As they were packing up to go, my senior citizen mom pulled up to unload some heavy items and they stopped to help her. Great guys, high quality work, and excellent value (beat all other bids). Highly recommend!

I hired Aguilar Landscaping Design to remove two trees that were about 75ft tall and close in proximity to my house. Alex was friendly and provided me with a quote that was lower than other landscapers. He was professional and confident the job could be done. Since the trees were so close to the house I was extremely nervous. But his confidence in his ability to do the job put me at ease. He even trimmed a few other branches from other trees that were hanging over my roof and driveway. With the trees removed he and his team did a great job grinding the stump and stacking the wood very neatly for me to share with neighbors. The worksite was clean and in better condition than before. Alex and his team really went the exta mile to ensure I was happy. As a Property Manager by trade, workmanship, customer service and price are really important qualities I look for in a landscaper. Being this was the first time I had trees removed at my home I feel I was more dilligent in who I would hire to complete my project. I plan to hire Alex again in the future to remove the stumps and have already recommended him to my neighbor. Aguilar Landscaping Design was the best choice for my project!
