Tree Removal Cost in Cambridge, Ontario

A simple question such as “how much does tree removal cost in Cambridge, Ontario” is difficult to answer without an arborist present. Below our Cambridge tree service will help you find some information that will help you understand whether your tree could be more or less expensive.

What size is the tree?
As you might expect, the bigger the tree is, the more expensive it will be. The amount of work it takes the team to remove the tree, clean up the debris, and remove any branches affect the cost. It is essential to note that the height and the diameter of the tree will influence its price. A smaller tree with a thicker trunk may cost more than a taller tree with a thinner trunk.

What is the current state of the tree?
Have you noticed that your trees have lost their strength and health due to old age or disease? Knowing your tree’s current condition will be helpful to determine the cost. Rotting trees will lower prices as they are weaker and more manageable to take down. However, there could be a greater risk for people working on it, which may increase the price. If you find that your tree has died, make sure you have it looked at and handled as soon as possible. A seemingly dead tree could be completely rotted, causing it to lose its entire structural integrity.

What is the location of your tree?
Are you looking at a tree that is close to electrical wires (report it if you do), buildings, or in your yard? Your tree removal cost will vary simply due to how easy it is for us to effectively and safely remove your tree. Tree removal that doesn’t have any environmental influence on the drop location will cost less. Additionally, a tree removal procedure that requires special attention to environmental factors, such as buildings, ground wires, fences, etc., will cost more.

Do you require emergency tree removal?
Are you concerned that your tree might fall on your house, electrical wire, or road and needs removal as soon as possible? We can help. Please note that this will cost more as we have to push back other jobs and require working after hours.

Fallen Trees (1/3 Removal Cost approx.)

At times in the Cambridge region, weather conditions can be detrimental to trees, leading to the loss of those trees and causing damage to your property. In cases in which damage is already occurred to the property due to a fallen tree, the price of the service is greatly reduced. The process is less dangerous, and it does not require that you climb the trees in order to begin it. Simply removing the debris and cutting up the fallen tree usually suffices. Stump removal is usually not included, and there is a chance that it could cost more. If the tree has landed in an area that is hard to access, it will increase the rate.

Additional Costs (Factors Affecting Price)

Tree removal services are subject to a wide variety of factors all of which will influence the final price. One such factor that will affect the final price is the distance of the tree from us. Are you closer or further away from us? In some cases, this can add an additional cost. The lean of the tree may play a role in the overall price. A tree with a large slope might be more expensive if it must be turned the other way to avoid yard damage. You are more than welcome to reach out to us if you have any questions. Tree removal is offered in different cities that could reduce the cost. Choose the closest one to you.

DIY Tree Removal

Determining tree removal cost depends significantly on the method you use to remove the tree(s). If you decide to remove the tree with a friend’s assistance, you will need equipment designed for such a task. As a precaution, for trees requiring removal of limbs before cutting, a tree removal expert is highly recommended, both for the safety of the climber and those underneath the tree when a branch falls.

For safety, you will require the following equipment once you have your permit (if required):

  • Helmet
  • Work gloves
  • Proper footwear (steel-toed boots suggested)
  • Chainsaw or Handsaw (you can rent)
  • Protective Clothing
  • Protective Glasses or Goggles
  • Rent a Woodchipper (depending on what you would like to do with the tree)
  • Rent a Stump Grinder (depending if you need stump removal to have a clean looking yard)

This list may seem expensive, and you would be right in thinking so. However, depending on how many trees you’re removing and how often, it’s more cost-effective, safer, and more professional to hire our Cambridge tree removal team in most cases.

Stump Removal Cost in Cambridge

The following information will discuss the impact of tree stump diameter, the number of stumps, age of tree stump, soil condition, tree stump species, and cleaning up needed.

Stump Diameter

The diameter of a stump goes a long way towards determining its costs to remove that stump. Large stumps require more labour and often have more root growth underground. Knowing electrical plans and pipes nearby is crucial when removing roots. This information is vital for both the homeowners and us, as it allows us to avoid the mainline if necessary. The diameter plays a vital role in the price. Root systems are based on diameter. Therefore it is essential to consider underground pipes.

Type of Tree Stump

What type of stump do you have? Depending on the type of stump, additional work may be required. Certain tree stumps such as oak are more challenging to break through and will take more time to remove. Please indicate the type of tree you have when filling out an online estimate to ensure we can provide you with an accurate estimate based on the exact type of tree stump you have. Different types of stumps require different amounts of time for grinding.

Clean-Up Needed

After the stump has been ground down, you may wish to have debris cleaned up or even some of this soil raked over. This will vary depending on the type of service you have chosen. There is sometimes a bit of a divet that we may fill with filler, so if this is the option you are interested in, please let us know, and we are happy to assist you in cleaning up your tree stump debris. Clean-up options are available; please notify us if you desire such. This can include filling in the mound.

Age of Tree Stump

When grinding down a stump, one of the factors that must be considered is the stump’s age. An older stump that has rotted inside or out is easier to remove than a younger stump. Older stumps typically cost less to remove than do young stumps. Younger and healthier tree stumps are much more challenging to remove. Nevertheless, our local Cambridge arborists have the proper tools to get the job done. Learn more about determining your stump’s age through tree rings.

If you have a stump in your grassy backyard chances are there will be no additional fees. Please contact us for more information.

Cambridge Stump Removal Benefits

Stump removal offers many benefits that extend beyond providing an aesthetically attractive lawn or property. For instance, it can decrease disease transmission, infestations, and stump sprouting, to mention a few. The following ten advantages of stump removal may help you decide whether it is right for you.

1. Getting Rid of Threatening Roots
Tree roots may spread, damaging the foundations of your sidewalk or driveway. Prevent this from happening.

2. Weaken Disease Transmission
Make sure that healthy trees and shrubs do not come into contact with dead or diseased wood.

3. Infestations Can Be Reduced
Tree stumps can serve as breeding grounds for insects such as bees and ants. Stump removal will keep your yard pest-free. Get your stump removed to avoid this problem altogether.

4. Establish a Lawn That Is Safe
Tree stumps often get in your way. Get your stump removed to make your lawn safer and softer.

5. Lawn Mowing Without Stress
Getting rid of your tree stump will improve your lawn mowing, as it will run more smoothly and more efficiently, ensuring you mow faster and more safely.

6. Exceptionally Beautiful
No matter where a stump is, it can appear as if it is taking over your yard as well as being an eyesore. Thus, it would be best if you were proactive in removing your stump.

7. Stump Sprouting
After a tree has been removed, the stump remains in the ground. It will eventually spread and cause a messy appearance in the yard. Get your stump ground out and get rid of the potential for an unfriendly yard.

8. Provide Protection for Other Trees
Relative to sprouting stumps, if your stump starts to grow, it may begin to intertwine with other tree roots, which may prove more costly to remove.

How to Remove a Tree Stump in Cambridge Yourself

Getting rid of a stump by yourself or with friends can be a back-breaking task if you do not have the proper equipment. If you have that equipment and know how to use it, the process can be worthwhile. If you are attempting to remove a stump yourself, please use caution and follow all safety guidelines. The following are three possible methods by which you can accomplish the task.

A close up of Cambridge tree service stump removal with a stump grinder.

1. Stump Grinder Rental

The most efficient yet least cost-effective means of removing a stump by yourself is to use a stump grinder, but it is often quite costly. It would be best to determine how much travel time it would require and whether you will need a trailer to transport it. Our solution would provide the best results if you need several stumps to be removed simultaneously. We do not suggest this option for a single stump since our prices are competitive and professionals do our work.

2. Using Chemical (Stump Killer)

First, you will have to remove as much of the stump as possible using a chainsaw. Next, drill one-inch holes throughout the stump and around its perimeter. You should drill 8-12 inches holes with some on an angle to meet up with the other holes. Pour potassium nitrate into the holes, then fill the rest of the holes with water. After approximately one month, the stump will have progressively softened. You can now safely use an axe to lop up and remove the remainder of the stump. However, this option is more time-consuming and will require more patience than other alternatives.

3. Start Digging

You will need a chainsaw, digging bar, axe, shovel, and a pick for this option. Much like option #2, remove as much of the stump as possible with a chainsaw (until it’s close to being flat). It allows you to clear dirt from around the stump and expose its roots and base. A hose can help you identify the roots and easily cut them with the axe. When big roots sprout, chop them, and hopefully, you can turn the stump away from the wall after repeated attempts. One additional option is to attach the stump to the truck using a chain and to drive it out, but please be careful as this option could damage your vehicle. This option is by far the cheapest option, but it is labour-intensive.

Benefits of Cambridge Tree Trimming & Pruning

Achieve Healthy Growth

A branch or limb’s extension may negatively affect the rest of a tree. Proper pruning and trimming can help the branch to continue growing and producing a healthy outcome.

Avoiding Injury

Sometimes trees will need to be saved. Damaged and compromised branches can ultimately damage the rest of the tree, and they may even damage your property when they finally fall. Taking precautions such as removing these damaged branches at an early stage may prevent this from happening later.

A Means of Reducing Overgrowth

When you allow your tree to grow unchecked, it will overgrow, thereby creating a dangerous situation. The tree may start growing in places you don’t want it too, such as your neighbor’s yard or even your house.

Happy Trees are Healthy Trees

By allowing us to prune or trim your tree, you create a healthier and more secure tree that will survive for years to come. Trees that have been well-maintained are less likely to experience storm damage and will generally have a longer life.

Beautiful in Appearance

No one enjoys looking at a tree with limbs growing in every direction you can think of. Our tree shaping services are designed to keep your trees shaped, with fewer damaged or overgrown branches.

Tree Shaping - What is it?

It may appear that there is no significant difference between Tree Trimming and Tree Shaping, but the two mean entirely different things. Tree trimming aims to remove branches, limbs or simply cut them back. Tree shaping is something that has been done for hundreds of years.

Tree shaping is often necessary in the young tree. In order to help the tree grow in a particular direction, it is best to address it sooner rather than later. Tree shaping can be required for a variety of reasons. Our experts would be happy to discuss one example with you: alleviating the lack of sun caused by shade or removing limbs away from windows and wires. Not every tree is right for shaping but give one of our experts a call, and we’ll help you out.

 Pruning

Also known as tree shaping, pruning is normally involved in both framing and grafting in order to shape and balance the tree. Pruning aids in the creation of the proper shape by promoting growth in select areas.

 Framing

Framing is the technique of applying different structures to the tree in order to facilitate it in growing. An example of a structure used might be a wire system, wooden contraptions, or in some cases, the tree itself.

 Grafting

Branches must likely be cut back in order for grafting to take place. These cut branches or pieces of the tree are then grafted together with other branches or pieces of the tree, resulting in a given shape.
