What Determines Tree Removal Costs

If you have a tree in your yard that is causing problems you need to contact a tree removal service immediately. Most people will try to do it themselves but that is never a good idea. If you don't know what you are doing you will end up doing more harm than good. That's why I always recommend calling a professional.

The problem is most people think tree removal is super expensive. And while tree removal can be a bit pricey, it’s probably not as much as you think.

So let's talk about a few things that will determine how much you might have to pay to have a tree removed. The first factor to consider is size. How big is the tree that needs to be removed? The bigger the tree the more expensive it will be. This is because a big tree requires bigger tools and more staff. The minimum you may pay is around $200.

That of course would be for a small tree that's no more than 1 foot wide and approximately 25 feet tall. If the tree is up to 2 feet wide and 50 feet tall, you can expect to pay around $500. If the tree is 4 feet wide and up to 90 feet tall, you may end up paying close to $1000. Please know these prices are just estimates. To get a more accurate quote you will need to contact a tree removal service in your area.

Another factor that will affect the price is the location of the tree. Is the tree hard to get to? Is it close to a home or other structure? All of these things will be factored into the cost. Some services will charge an extra fee if your tree is sick, dead or has bees. All of these things make the job not only more difficult but more dangerous as well.

Because of this your fees may be a little higher. The last thing that will be factored into your cost is clean up. When a tree is removed there is a lot of debris that gets left behind. The tree removal service is not going to just leave the debris in your yard.

They will clean it up and dispose of it properly. Generally speaking there will be a separate fee for this process. However, if you want to save a little money you can ask if you can do the cleanup yourself. In some cases you won't be able to do the cleanup because it may be too dangerous.

Those are the three main things that will determine how much you will pay to have a tree removed from your yard. Keep in mind each tree removal service is different and will charge different fees. Call around and get quotes from several different companies.

Before you call do your own research to ensure they are a reputable company. Once you have a few quotes you can use them to negotiate with the company you choose to do business with.
