What Factors Affect The Cost of Tree Removal? – MD DC

proper tree removal is costly

Having a tree removed can be expensive. When you’re a homeowner with trees on your property you should budget in tree care just like any other homeowner expense so you won’t be caught short.

There are many things to consider when Wood Acres Tree Specialists gives an estimate.

  • Minimum cost. Tree companies have a lot of equipment – even for small jobs. For very large jobs specialized equipment must be brought in to the job site.
  • The bigger the tree, the more expensive the removal. Removing a large tree is more complicated, large oaks can weigh 30-50 tons, and clean-up can be extensive. If your tree removal requires a crane that adds to the cost.
  • Tree stability. A tree that is failing can post a hazard to the property and crew and this must be considered in the estimate. The longer you wait when you notice a problem with a tree, the more it can cost to remove.
  • Tree location. If the tree is on a hill, near power lines, near structures, tangled within other trees limbs, or right next to the street where traffic passes this could take longer than an uncomplicated tree removal.
  • Reputation of Arborist. Wood Acres is licensed, insured, equipped with the latest heavy machinery, and is extremely experienced. This adds up to extra insurance for you that the job will be done correctly and safely with minimal percussions.
  • Stump removal. This is always an extra service as it requires different equipment and it also gives the homeowner an opportunity to save some money to not have it done if it’s not in a prominent area.
  • Clean up. The degree that Wood Acres cleans up the debris after the job is also included in the estimate.
If you’re planning on moving into a house, have Wood Acres check the trees before you move in and this could save you money. If it’s your problem tree, don’t wait. Disaster is more expensive and time-consuming than tree removal.
