The cost of removal ranges from $400 to $2,000 and would depend on the location, height, diameter, and species.
Location –This refers to the location relative to other structures. This is an important factor because this will determine how easy or difficult the process of removing. How and where it is located determines the danger our staff faces – the greater the danger posed by the job, the higher the cost. Visual assessment includes how it 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 ones imply more work and require more staff to accomplish the job within the agreed time. Smaller ones require less work, less staff, and the use of less equipment.
The diameter is also an integral factor as it determines how long it will take to accomplish the job. Cutting a thicker one would require a longer time and may require for cutting it into smaller sections. The whole process would require additional manpower and equipment.
Species – There are different kinds and species – some are big, some are small, some have hard trunks, while others have soft trunks. Species with harder trunks will be more difficult to handle than softer ones. Further, ones with multi-trunks are more difficult to remove than one with a single trunk.
Five factors go into the assessment of trimming pricing. These factors are location, height, diameter, and the 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 removal, the key to our pricing is the location. If it positioned at the center of the field this takes lesser resources, such as time, manpower, and equipment than a one tangled in power lines or leans on a structure.
Size – A tall species 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 trimming will necessarily mean higher pricing, less with small ones.
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 species that have more branches and bigger limbs, depending on the species. More branches and larger limbs necessarily mean more work requiring more time to finish the job.
Degree of Trimming – Central to our trimming is the degree of the desired trimming. An overgrown species needs more work and time to shape compared to a species that received regular trimming.
Assessment of stump grinding or removal considers five factors: grinding or removal, location, age, size, and species. Having assessed these factors, pricing would start at $500.
Grinding vs. Removal
Depending on the needs or your preference, we can either ground or remove the 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 job requires the removal of the whole stump including its roots. The hole left from the removal is then filled. The stump removal is more expensive since it requires more resources to complete the job. Whichever method you choose, we are more than willing to perform either solution and help you in deciding which is appropriate.
Location – The location of the stump is central to our stump grinding or removal efforts. 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 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.
The decision whether to trim or remove it depends on the answers we get from the following questions:
Is it a danger to your property?
Does it have many dead branches or is it dying? If it is a hazard, we further assess the it for the following conditions: is it in contact with your home or with another structure on your property? Which part of the it 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 its health.
Does it have dying limbs or decaying?
Removal may be the best option if it is evident that it is dying or decaying fast. Trimming is sufficient if there are only a few branches dead and it is possible to restore its health.
Is the it creating a problem?
You have a problem if it is dangerously close and a strain on the structure; if a storm damaged it and is beyond restoring it; and it is too large that it hinders the growth of grass and plants. In such cases, removal may be the best option. For an overgrown species, trimming is sufficient.
Does the it still add value to your landscape?
If it is part of your landscape but is becoming an eyesore, trimming is enough. Regular trimming is a healthy practice and can bring out the beauty and restore it health. The practice, however, is often neglected. If it has no added value to your landscape and you consider it a problem, then you may consider removal.
Removal tops requests from our customers for our offerings. While it is healthy, most owners seldom think of maintenance until the unhealthy condition becomes obvious. It is when homeowners contact us that trimming it may be too little, too late.
Once we receive your request, our expert arborist visits the property for an 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 it and accomplish the job, the process of felling, cutting, wood removal or stacking, and a thorough cleanup. We could also assess the entire property to identify others that are damaged or sick and work on them.
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 situations, when only the best will do.
Many property owners are unaware that damage to or the killing it 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 specimen 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 it healthy and beautiful. We aim to:
The process for our trimming is the same as removal. Our team of professionals goes to the property to assess the concern, gives you a quotation, and sets a schedule for the work. Unless you prefer a climbing gear, we will use hardware designed to handle the heavy trimming job.
