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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
