When a tree needs to be removed from your property, it is important for you to call a licensed contractor. They are able to help you secure permits for tree removal and more importantly, they can guarantee a safe and proper procedure. However, some homeowners are hesitant in calling licensed contractors because they feel like the cost of tree removal might be too high. However, there are contractors that can give you reasonably priced services and these rates depend on your tree’s current situation.
The best way to know the cost of tree removal for your property is by asking. This is a job done by licensed tree contractors, not by your go-to handyman or gardener. Special equipment and tools are required, and this service is quite risky too. It is best to have someone who is licensed and certified to work on tree removal to get the job done for you. In case you’re wondering, there are factors that affect the cost of tree removal including the following:
1. Tree Size
Depending on the size of the tree, the level of difficulty and the amount of work that needs to be done to have it removed may differ. Of course, the contractor would have to transport the removed tree from your home to properly dispose of it afterward. If a tree is way too large, heavy equipment such as cranes may also be necessary. All these affect the overall cost of tree removal.
2. Tree Location
When a tree is located in the middle of a very large backyard with absolutely no obstructions that surround it, the process to cut it down and have it removed may be much easier compared to one that’s right beside your home or by the roadside. Special precautions would have to be done in order to ensure the safety of the people and property that surround the tree. These may also affect how much removing the tree would cost.
3. Tree Condition and Species
Has the tree already fallen down? Is the tree sick or dead already? Is it still very healthy and standing tall and high like a palm tree? Does it have so many branches like an oak tree? All these also affect the amount a tree contractor may charge you to remove the tree.
