The cost to remove a large tree would depend on the type of tree is and its location on your property. The average price for a tree 25 – 30m in height is $3,200. But the real range is $1,500 – $4,500. If it is a tall skinny tree that is easily felled and removed, the cost will be relatively cheap. But if it is a tree with a huge trunk that overhangs your home, the time taken to remove will be greater so the price will also be higher.
Quoting the price of tree removal based on a photo taken or an explanation of the tree over the phone is a little difficult.
The price is not just about the tree itself, but also the access to the tree, obstacles around the tree and all in all the ease of removal. The tree service will need to inspect the site first for potential hazards such as overhead/ underground services, access and of course take a closer look at the tree itself. It’s amazing how different a tree can look in a photo than in real life.
Not really. As long as you have met the tree service for the quote and you have both agree on what tree or trees are being removed, there is no need for you to be home when the work is being done. You can just inspect the completed work when you return and arrange to pay the tree service after.
This will depend on the agreement you have come to with the tree service. Stump removal in essence is a separate job as it requires a whole different type of machinery to get the job done so it is something I would not assume is included. Make sure you ask for a price including stump removal and be sure they specify on you written quote that the price includes stump removal.
Tree removal should always include the removal of all waste. Tree services will arrive at your home with a mulching machine ready to turn the tree into wood chip on site and shoot it straight into the back of their truck. You can negotiate a better price if you decide to keep the trees timber and use it for an open fireplace. If you do not discuss this during the quoting process you will be priced for removal of all waste by default.
Yes, trees are on average 25% cheaper to remove in winter then they are in spring or summer. The main reason for this sis supply and demand. Tree services along with landscapers and lawn care services are in low demand. Because there are lots of companies competing for what little work there is in winter, they will generally fall over each other trying to win your work with cheaper prices.
If the tree is on your property and it falls, then it is your responsibility. If the tree is on your neighbour’s property and falls through the fence onto your property the neighbour is responsible. In both cases your insurance company will cover the cost of tree removal and any repairs that need to be done.
In general tree removal is not covered by insurance. If the tree has come down in a storm or some other act of nature your home insurance should cover it. If the tree is still standing and health, your insurance will not pay for its removal just because you want to remove it.
