What is the Cost of a Tree Removal?

The cost of our tree removal service ranges from $400 to $2,000 and would depend on the location, height, diameter, and species of the tree.  

Location –This refers to the position of the tree. This is an important factor because this will determine how easy or difficult the process of removing the tree. How and where the tree is located determines the danger our staff faces – the greater the danger posed by the job, the higher the cost. Visual assessment includes how the tree is positioned – if leaning towards the house or branches are tangled with power lines. An experienced lineman will be needed for this, and the cost may increase. 

Size – Taller trees imply more work and require more staff to accomplish the job within the agreed time. Smaller trees require less work, less staff, and the use of less equipment.  

The diameter of the tree is also an integral factor as it determines how long it will take to accomplish the job. Cutting a thicker tree would require a longer time and may call for cutting the tree into smaller sections. The whole process would require additional manpower and equipment. 

 Species – There are different kinds and species of trees – some are big, some are small, some have hard trunks, while others have soft trunks. Trees with harder trunks will be more difficult to handle than softer ones. Further, trees with multi-trunks are more difficult to remove than a tree with a single trunk. 

What is the Cost of Tree Trimming?

Five factors go into the assessment of tree trimming pricing. These factors are location, height, diameter, and the tree species, including the trimming degree required or desired. With the five factors, the pricing would range from $200 to over $1,000. 

Location – The same with the tree removal service, the key to our costing is the location of the tree. A tree positioned at the center of the field takes lesser resources like time, manpower, and equipment than a tree tangled in power lines or leans on a structure.

Size – A tall tree requires our staff to climb higher to trim the branches. Hence, our staff would need more time, extra safety measures, and other resources to complete the job. The cost of tree trimming will necessarily mean higher pricing, less with small trees.

The diameter is another consideration that matters since a bigger diameter indicates more branches to be cut. And, more branches for cutting means more time and effort required to accomplish the task.

Species – There are trees that have more branches and bigger limbs, depending on the tree species. More branches and larger limbs necessarily mean more work requiring more time to finish the job.

Degree of Trimming – Central to our tree trimming service is the degree of the desired trimming. An overgrown tree needs more work and time to shape compared to a tree that received regular trimming.

What is the Cost of Stump Grinding & Removal

Assessment of a tree for stump grinding or removal considers five factors: grinding or removal, location, age, size, and species of the tree. Having assessed these factors, pricing would start at $500.

Grinding vs. Removal 
Depending on the needs of the tree or your preference, we can either ground or remove the tree stump. Grinding saves time and money and is, therefore, a more economical choice. The process of grinding is easier than removal since the stump is ground to below ground level, covered with dirt, and allowed to decay along with the roots.

Stump removal requires a more intricate process in that the stump calls for the removal of the whole stump including its roots. The hole left from the removal is then filled. The stump removal service is more expensive since it requires more resources to complete the job. Whichever method you choose, we are more than willing to perform either service and help you in deciding which is appropriate for the tree.

Location – The location of the stump is central to our stump grinding or removal service. A stump which is difficult to reach requires longer time and more resources to grind or remove. A stump which is near a structure requires a complex process and is time-consuming.

Size – A large stump would require more work and time to put into grinding or removing it. A small stump may accomplish the task of grinding and removing in a couple of hours, but a larger stump would involve more hands and a longer time.

Species – The tree species determines the difference in the work involved. Grinding a softer stump is easier and is less time-consuming compared to a hard wood which takes longer to grind.

Age – The age of the stump is a key factor in our pricing. An older stump tends to have a more complex root system which complicates the stump removal process. Age, therefore, makes our service more costly.

Tree Trimming or Tree Removal - How to Decide?

The decision whether to trim or remove a tree depends on the answers we get from the following questions: 

Is the tree a danger to your property?
Does the tree have many dead branches or is the tree dying?  If the tree is a hazard, we further assess the tree for the following conditions: is the tree in contact with your home or with another structure on your property? Which part of the tree is making contact – a single branch or the trunk?

Trimming may be the choice if a branch or two is in contact with your structure, and only when doing so is safe and will not affect the tree’s health. 

Does the tree have dying limbs or decaying?
Removal may be the best option if it is evident that the tree is dying or decaying fast. Trimming is sufficient if there are only a few branches dead and it is possible to restore the tree’s health.

Is the tree creating a problem?
You have a problem with a tree if it is dangerously close and a strain on the structure; if a storm damaged the tree and is beyond restoring it; and it is too large that it hinders the growth of grass and plants. In such cases, removing the tree may be the best option. For an overgrown tree, trimming is sufficient.

Does the tree still add value to your landscape?
If the tree is part of your landscape but is becoming an eyesore, trimming is enough. Regular tree trimming is a healthy practice and can bring out the beauty and restore the health of the tree. The practice, however, is often neglected. If the tree has no added value to your landscape and you consider it a problem, then you may consider tree removal.

Tree Removal

Tree removal tops requests from our customers for our services. A tree stays healthy and retains its beauty with regular care and maintenance. While the tree is healthy, most tree owners seldom think of tree care until the tree’s unhealthy condition becomes obvious. It is when homeowners call us.

Once we receive your call, our expert arborist visits the property for tree assessment and presents a free quote to you right after the assessment. The quote includes a suggested time and date for our experts to work on the tree and accomplish the job, the process of tree felling, cutting, wood removal or stacking, and a thorough cleanup. We could also assess the entire property to identify the trees that are damaged or sick and work on them.

Tree removal uses heavy equipment because work is easier, efficient, and safe. However, the equipment may damage the landscape and the property. To avoid damaging the property, we use climbing gear. We guarantee that our arborists are experts in the safe use of heavy equipment or the climbing harness. While the work is going on, a ground crew removes all debris and ensures that the safety measures are met.  

We are the tree removal Columbia MO trusts for large and dangerous trees, when only the best will do.  

Tree Trimming

Many tree owners are unaware that damage to or the killing of a tree results from trimming done by non-professionals than the diseases or insects. Trimming sounds uncomplicated, but in truth, it involves a scientific process which should be done by trained professionals. Each tree is unique and may require a proper assessment to determine where and how to cut or prune.

Regular trimming done by a licensed professional can do much to make the tree healthy and beautiful.  We aim to:

  • Remove dangerous and dead limbs and branches
  • Evaluate and improve or restore the tree’s health
  • Restore the tree’s original style, beauty, and improve its symmetry and shape

The process for our tree trimming service is the same as the tree removal. Our team of professionals goes to the property to assess the tree concerned, gives you a quotation, and sets a schedule for the work. Unless you prefer a climbing gear, we will use equipment designed to handle the heavy trimming job.
