How Much Does Tree Removal Cost?

September 30, 2022

You don’t have to let the cost of tree removal intimidate you into ignoring a major problem. It’s often not as bad as you would think, and it’s a critical service if you have a sick tree that might fall onto your roof.

We can’t put exact prices in a blog post because costs vary substantially, but we’d like to give you an idea of what you can expect. Check out the most important factors that determine the cost of tree removal.

How Big is the Tree?

This plays the biggest role because trees with thicker trunks or long-reaching branches are much more difficult to handle than smaller palm trees. We often remind our clients not to prune big trees themselves because there is a lot of skill and know-how involved. It’s also unsafe to take down a 60-foot tree if you don’t know which direction it will land.

Are There Multiple Trees in Need of Removal?

Do you need to clear an entire lot of trees and foliage of various sizes? This is pretty common, and as you may have guessed, the final cost will depend upon the size and scope of the project.

What Type of Tree?

Some trees are harder to cut than others. Cedar, maple, and oak trees are among the more difficult to handle. Pine trees aren’t as hard, but they’re more work than poplar and palm trees. Don’t forget that the larger trees have extensive root systems as well, which will factor into the cost, too, if you seek to excavate them (as most homeowners do).

Is the Tree Healthy or Diseased?

This might be more good news, actually. Diseased trees, the most likely to need removal, can be an easier job. These are also the ones you should give the most attention since they may have present problems if a storm causes them to fall.

These are the primary considerations for determining the cost of tree removal. Don’t hesitate to contact us in case of an emergency. Our guys are responsive and want to help you as soon as possible.
