If you believe you have a tree, or trees, that need removed, but you are unsure of how much it will cost you out-of-pocket, continue reading for a general guide to tree removal costs.
Top 5 Factors That Influence Tree Removal Prices
So how do you know if you need to remove your tree? There are few clues to look for. If it is causing structural damage to your home or surrounding property, it definitely needs to be removed. If it is a safety or navigational hazard, it should also be removed.
And if you suspect that it is sick, dying, or dead, then you may need tree removal service. But don’t panic over outrageous tree removal prices. There are a few ways to gauge how much it will cost to remove your tree. A reputable tree care company can provide free estimates and advice as well.
Consider these 5 factors when trying to estimate the cost of your tree removal needs:
❶ Size – This will have one of the largest impacts on the overall price of your tree removal project. A tiny, skinny tree will cost much less than a large one because less labor and equipment is needed.
❷ Location – Also having a huge impact on the overall total price is the location of a tree. The degree of accessibility, danger, and effort all play a major role in your estimate.
❸ Health – Trees that are dead, diseased, or infested tend to cost more to remove because additional labor, time, and equipment are needed. Also, it is a safety hazard.
❹ Stumps – After you have a tree removed, there is still a stump remaining. If you opt to leave the stump as-is, you can significantly decrease the cost of your tree removal project. But if you want the stumps removed or ground down, this will be an additional cost.
❺ Quantity – The number of trees you need removed will be the final deciding factor on how much your total project cost will be. Take the above four factors to estimate the cost of tree removal per tree, then multiply that sum by the number of trees you need taken down. Although it won’t be exact, this calculation can give you a rough estimate of what it might cost for your tree removal job.
Dead or Diseased Tree Removal
If you have a dead, diseased, or dying tree on your property, be sure to play it safe. Do not try to remove it or treat it yourself. Do not allow pets or children near the tree. And always call a trusted tree service provider for a professional assessment.
