Tree service providers differ greatly in their pricing. The average price to remove a tree varies from about $150 to several thousand. However, some tree service providers can charge more. For instance, the average tree root removal price ranges from about $55 to about $350 and the same for stump grinding.
There are many factors that go into the pricing of any tree service provider. Some providers charge more for more damage than others. If you’re not a homeowner or you don’t have any property you can claim, it’s a good idea to hire a local tree service provider. You can often get a much better service if your service provider is local, as they can better identify your needs. Tree services are usually offered on a contract basis. Contractual pricing depends on the amount of work needed, location of the property and the type of service being offered. There is usually an option for an annual maintenance contract and for a more customized tree service plan.
Once the decision has been made about which tree service provider to hire, you need to get a copy of their contract, including the rates and conditions. Most contracts include all of the necessary information so you know exactly what to expect with the tree service. You should look at all clauses carefully, as some can be very complicated and ambiguous. Make sure that your expectations match the contract. Read the contract over thoroughly and make sure there aren’t any hidden fees. Make sure the tree service is licensed and that all required inspections are completed.
