Description of service

This is the price per tree to remove three large oak trees that were estimated to be approximately 80 years old each. This price included cutting down the trees and grinding the stump. It included removal of all brush and smaller limbs from the trees, but did not include removing the trunk. Trunk removal would have been another $50 per tree. They did cut the trunk into smaller pieces -- about 5 feet long -- and stacked them neatly against my fence. The price also included cleaning up all debris. I had four men here for over three hours and they only stopped briefly to eat lunch.

Review of Service

This is a noisy and frightening project to watch. One man literally walked up the sides of the trees carrying a chain saw in one hand and cutting off limbs all the way up. Meanwhile there were three more men on the ground guiding large ropes that are draped around the larger limbs and the trunk so they can pull them down in a safe direction away from the house. The men on the ground also used chain saws to cut up the limbs and then put them through the woodchipper. It all goes very quickly and I felt that for the amount of work these guys did, the price was a real bargain.


I was lucky enough to know someone who wanted firewood, so I didn't have to pay for the trunk removal. If you are not so lucky, prepare to pay an extra fee for this service. You cannot believe how much wood this amounts to if you don't let them cart it. Also, be aware that when they allow the trunk to fall to the ground, you will have large craters in your lawn that you will need to fill with topsoil and re-seed. Make sure the tree service company is licensed and insured. This is extremely hazardous work, and not only can someone be seriously injured, but there can be tremendous damage to your house or property if something goes wrong.
