What is Included with a Basic Tree Removal Service?
Every tree is different which means that every tree removal is different. That being said, the vast majority of trees can be successfully removed using a basic tree removal service. During a basic tree removal service, we will attend your property and will advise you on the best method for removal. If the whole tree needs to be removed, then we will use a technique called modernized mechanical felling to remove the tree in one piece. Modernized Mechanical Felling is widely considered to be the safest and most effective way to remove a tree, reducing the chance of falling branches and potential injury. Once the tree has been successfully felled, all that should remain are the stump and root ball, which we will professionally remove. Before leaving your property, we will then collect any smaller parts of the tree that may have collected on the ground and will turn them into mulch.
If the whole tree does not need to be removed, then one of our highly skilled and fully trained arboriculturists will be able to provide a full tree surgeon service, in which they can reduce the size of the tree or shrub to a more manageable size.
What is the Cost to Remove a Tree?
Tree removal requires a highly skilled professional, but that doesn’t mean that it is not affordable or extortionately expensive. It’s difficult to provide a flat rate for tree removal because no two jobs are often the same. The average cost to remove a tree is around $700. However, the price will vary based on the size of the tree and it’s location and surrounding hazards. The price range for a tree removal service can be between $300-$1800. If you want to do a quick calculation, you can expect to pay around $12-$13 per foot in height of the tree. For this reason, we recommend that you get in touch with us for a no-obligation free quote – we’ll ask you a few questions about the tree that you need removed and with this information will be able to provide you with a far more accurate quotation price.
What Affects the Price of a Tree Removal?
There are several factors that affect the price of tree removal including:
- The size of the tree
When it comes to tree removal, size matters. Not only do we need to take into consideration the height of your tree, but also its diameter, canopy, and stump size. Generally, the larger the tree, the more hours it will take to fell, and the more material that will need to be removed, making the removal of the tree more expensive.
- The danger associated with the tree
With tree removal, danger comes with the territory but there are certain things that can make a tree removal trickier such as overhead power lines, proximity to a railway, or positioning on a steep embankment. If your tree is classed as being in a dangerous location then the price is usually higher as it puts the safety and lives of the tree specialists in danger.
- Whether you wish to dispose of the tree yourself
When you have a tree removed there is usually a lot of wood to dispose of. Some people prefer to dispose of this themselves or to cut the wood into logs for their fire – in this case, the cost of the removal is often slightly less as the materials do not need to be removed from the site.
- Whether the removal is an emergency
If your tree has been struck by lightning and is ready to fall, or needs to be removed in an emergency, then you will need to pay extra for an emergency call-out. Emergency call outs take into consideration the added dangers of the situation and also unique hours of the job.
It’s not just trees that can become dangerous or a nuisance, shrubs often need to be removed for their own good too. Just like our tree removal service, we will attend your property to advise you on the best way to approach your shrub issue, whether that be total removal or a healthy trim. If removal is needed, then we will remove the body of the shrub before digging out any remaining stump and root ball.
As with tree removal, the prices of a shrub removal can vary based on the size of the shrub, its location, whether it is in a dangerous location, and whether its removal will be an emergency. To get a quote for your shrub removal, then use our free no-obligation quote tool online or give us a call.
Tree Stump Removal
Cutting down a tree is just half of the battle, and whether the tree has fallen down itself or has been removed, you will then have a stump to contend with. Many people try to deal with stumps themselves by towing them out with their car or trying to set them on fire, but if you lack the right equipment or experience, you put yourself at serious risk of damaging your vehicle and injuring yourself.
If you have a stump that needs to be removed then let the professionals take care of it. We have the experience and equipment needed to safely and efficiently remove tree stumps of all sizes and ages.
Is Tree Removal Covered by Insurance?
There’s no quick answer to this question but your tree removal may be covered by your home insurance if it falls into the right categories. Here are some things to consider:
1. Has the tree fallen yet?
Many insurance providers will only cover the cost of tree removal if it has already fallen. If it has not fallen then the homeowner is responsible for pruning and removing it.
2. Did it cause damage to your house?
If a tree has fallen, or partially fallen, causing damage to your house, then home insurance generally covers the cost for any repairs or damage caused. If the tree has fallen without causing any damage, then usually insurance providers do not cover the bill.
3. Is it blocking your driveway?
In some cases, home insurance providers will cover the cost of tree removal if the tree falls and damages your home or other structure on your property or blocks your driveway.
As you can see, it can be difficult to know whether your tree removal will be covered by insurance, and so we recommend contacting them to clarify their policy on tree removal to remove any element of doubt.
