The cost of tree removal ranges widely. In some situations, you can pay as little as $150 for tree removal services in Greensboro, though the average cost to remove a tree is much higher. Realistically, the average tree removal ranges from roughly $700 – $1000, but this will also depend on several factors. In extreme cases, you could be looking at a bill of $5000+.
So let’s look at some situations and how each might impact tree removal rates.
Everage Tree Size
Let’s start with the size of the tree you would like removed. This is usually what people use to gauge price.
However, while it is one of the major contributing factors it’s not the ultimate deciding factor. You may have heard that your neighbor had a large tree removed for a cost of $1500. You have the same tree and think your cost should be in the same ballpark. Nothing is further from the truth.
In reality, your costs could be double, and in some situations, even less.
Because there are so many factors that can affect the overall cost, professional tree removal services will come out and assess the situation before offering a price.
First, pine trees are tall and straight. This makes them easier to climb or be lifted into and then taken down in sections. The cost of tree removal for something tall and thin versus something tall and sprawling will be less costly.
Tree Wood Hardness
Some trees are much softer than others. This means that cutting down softer tree types and removing their parts takes considerably less effort and less wear and tear on cutting equipment. So, on this note, you cannot expect the tree removal cost for a harder tree type to be similar to that of a softer tree based on size alone. Additionally, cutting the tree down constitutes only the landing of the tree. To complete the tree removal process the tree must be delimbed and the limbs must be mulched and collected. All this cutting of the harder wood lends to higher tree removal rates.
Like they say, location, location, location. We’re not talking about your location relative to us, we’re talking about the location of the tree you’re looking to take down relative to anything else. The complexity of removal will impact the tree removal rates.
Let’s say that your friend’s tree you heard him speaking of was in a location with a few hundred feet of open area around the tree. This highly reduces the cost of tree removal for this project because the tree can be dismantled in larger sections with no worries of inflicting damage to any surrounding structures.
Alternatively, if your tree is located near a house or power lines this complicates the removal by requiring more men and equipment which in turn results in a higher cost to have the tree removed. In some cases, if power lines are involved, the power company must be notified of the work prior to proceeding. Greensboro Tree Services, NC is fully insured and is a utility compliant and safety company.
There is a cost we must incur moving our equipment and teams from location to location. If the tree removal rates you are considering were a part of a larger project then the cost per tree will without a doubt be lower than the cost to remove just a single tree.
