To keep your yard looking as attractive as possible, you periodically need to have your trees trimmed to keep them in good shape. Until you actually need to trim your trees, you may be completely unaware of how much it costs. The cost of tree trimming varies depending on a number of factors including whether you do it yourself or if you hire a professional company.
The national average tree pruning cost is $420, though most people pay somewhere between $200 and $700. Pruning is an important part of keeping your trees healthy and strong, so it’s best to call a professional to help you do this work. The cost of tree pruning depends on a variety of factors including the size, location, type, and the health of the tree.
The cost for tree removal can vary as well. Tree removal ranges from $300 all the way up to $2,700 depending on the factors listed below:
- The tree’s height and diameter
- The location of the tree
- Any hazardous conditions surrounding the tree
- Access for equipment to reach the tree
- Wood and/or stump removal
- How long the process of removal takes
It’s important to keep in mind that the cost for tree removal could surpass $2,700 based upon storm damage, size, extenuating circumstances, etc. With all of that being said, the average tree removal in the United States is about $1,200.
Once the tree is down, you need to decide how to dispose of it. Stump grinding is the process used to remove the stump from your lawn. You can expect to pay an additional charge for that service, usually around $300 for a larger stump and $80 for a smaller one. Being a homeowner, you’re often under a lot of pressure to automatically accept the lowest bid for a tree service, but this isn’t always the best decision! The lowest immediate bid can end up costing more in the long-run by making the initial problem worse or even creating a new one.
