The service for Driscoll Tree Service was outstanding. Michael came out to meet with me, explained the pros and cons of how to deal with my tree removal, and provided a clear quote for the service. The crew that came out to do the work was on-time, professional and did a great job. One of the trees they had to remove was tall and in a spot where they couldn't get any heavy equipment to it, but they were able to take it down in pieces without damaging my landscaping or fence. If you are looking for a professional and competent tree service,  I definitely recommend calling Driscoll Tree Service.

Efficient, Affordable, and Professional what more can you ask for in a company. I had a big tree in my yard that needed to be cut down. From the estimate from Michael and the actual job being performed by his crew, everything was satisfactory. Including the clean-up. They’re also licensed and insured so that made selecting for the job even more comfortable. I highly recommend Driscoll Tree Service for your tree removal.

Factors That Affect Tree Removal Cost

Trees are valuable additions to any landscape, but sometimes you must remove them. Whether it’s a dying, dead, or potential hazards tree, you should immediately hire a professional tree care company to address the issue. Cost is a major factor when you want to cut down a tree on your property for whatever reason. Many homeowners handle the project alone, but you need the proper tools and expertise to avoid severe injuries and property damage.

Driscoll Tree Service can help you understand the magnitude of the project and the costs involved. Many factors affect the cost of tree removal. Hence, consulting a tree service before the project can save you money in the long run. Here are common factors that affect the cost of tree removal.

Tree Size

The key factor to consider before a removal project is tree size. A tree care company will assess the size of the tree, determine the risks, and provide an estimate. The average price for trees that grow over ten feet in height ranges between $500 to $1,000. However, removing smaller trees can cost about $200. Depending on the tree care company you work with, you may get a discount, so it is always a good idea to shop around.

Access to the Trees

secondary

When you schedule a tree removal project, the service will inspect your property to ensure it is accessible. If your tree is near your house, other structures, or the road, it isn’t easy to access, which adds to the overall cost. Obstacles will also likely drive the removal cost up to ensure safety. Although access can increase the project’s cost, don’t attempt a DIY tree removal! As mentioned, with the tools or expertise, you can avoid property damage and the safety of your household.

Tools and Equipment

Tree removal is a highly invasive process that requires the right tools and equipment. Several removal techniques require different equipment. DIYers usually leverage the tools in the shed, which may not meet the safety standards and effectiveness needed. Even if you purchase or hire tools for the job, you need the proper skills to avoid safety hazards which add to the costs. A professional tree care company has seasoned arborists with industry-standard tools to ensure an efficient and safe removal process.

Additional Services

After getting rid of a hazardous tree, other processes follow. This may include stump removal or grinding, which affects service cost. Although most property owners don’t mind a stump in the backyard, it creates a safety hazard by attracting unwanted critters like pests and insects. A reputable tree service can account for future projects and customize a comprehensive tree removal plan incorporating stump removal without damaging your lawn.
