Your tree service questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much does tree service cost?

Tree service prices vary depending on the type of service you need. Tree trimming costs $100 to $500 for a small tree or $200 to $900for trees 30' to 60' in height. Tree removal costs $300 to $2,000 depending on the tree's location and size. Tree debris removal costs $75 to $250 per load.

A tree service can determine and promote the health of your trees and other plants. Arborists, or tree specialists, are also helpful with planting new trees to make sure they get enough sun and nutrition for growth. They trim difficult bushes and help remove invasive species. During new construction, a tree service can assist you with clearing the land including removing root systems for a better foundation.

What types of services do tree companies offer?

Tree service professionals are most commonly known for trimming and removing trees. They also provide a variety of other services, including:

  • Tree stump removal
  • Tree health inspection / treatment
  • Tree planting / transplanting
  • Tree / shrub fertilization
  • Tree support / storm prep
  • Tree debris removal

Should I tip my tree service crew?

Tree service professionals do not expect to be tipped for their service. A $20 to $50 per person tip for difficult jobs or exceptional service is always appreciated.

Having cold drinks on hand is appreciated when working in hot weather. If the crew is working all day, offering to pay for their lunch or having food delivered is a great way to show your appreciation without making anyone uncomfortable.

When is the best time of year to trim trees?

The best time to trim trees is when the tree is dormant. In most cases, trees and plants are dormant from November through March. Pruning when the leaves are gone provides better visibility and fewer pests and pathogens are less likely to enter the tree.

Flowering trees are typically pruned immediately after they flower in the spring. Flowering trees that bloom in the summer or fall are pruned in late winter or early spring during their dormancy.

The worst time to prune trees is during late summer and early fall. Pruning during this time encourages new growth, preventing the tree from entering its natural dormancy. The tree will struggle to heal in time for the cold season and could die.

Mature trees should be trimmed every 3 to 5 years, while younger trees need trimming every 2 to 3 years.

How do I choose a tree service?

Qualified tree care specialists can keep your trees healthy and looking their best. To choose a quality tree service near you, follow these guidelines:

  • Get at least 3 detailed estimates from companies with years of tree service experience.
  • Confirm the company has insurance, surety bonds, and the proper licenses as well as worker's compensation insurance for all employees.
  • Read HomeGuide and Google reviews of the company.
  • Ask for a written copy of the bid, contract terms, and warranty.
  • Avoid large upfront deposits. Negotiate a final payment after the work is completed.
  • Get a second opinion from an arborist if a tree service tells you to cut down healthy limbs or trees.

What questions do I ask when hiring a tree service?

Choosing the right tree service can make the difference between your trees and shrubs looking their best or struggling to survive. Be sure to ask these important questions when choosing a tree service:

  • How long have you been in the tree business?
  • Do you have a list of previous customers with contact details?
  • Do you offer tree trimming as part of an annual maintenance plan?
  • What kind of equipment will you use? 
  • Will you need to move my fence to gain access?
  • Does your estimate include clean-up and disposal?
  • Do you deliver firewood?
