This includes, the personnel needed to remove a tree of that size, the clean-up needed, removing branches and debris, and additional limbs that may need to be removed while chopping the tree down. Similarily the height and the width of the tree will factor into the price. A small tree with a huge trunk may cost more than a taller tree with a slimmer trunk.

DIY Tree Removal

Tree removal costs can vary greatly depending upon the method you take to expedite the removal of the tree(s). If you opt to remove the tree by yourself or with colleagues, you will need the proper tools to do this. For trees that need the removal of limbs before cutting, we recommend a tree removal service provider. This is for the protection of both the individual climbing the tree as well as those underneath it when the branch falls.

  • Work Gloves
  • Proper Footwear (steel-toed boots suggested)
  • Chainsaw or Handsaw (you can rent)
  • Protective Clothing
