If you have a tree in your yard that you’d like gone, do you have any notion of how much the price will be? What goes into estimating the cost of removing a fallen tree might amaze you.
Tree Contractor's Estimations
There are four factors in coming up with a price: location, condition, size, and diameter. The arborist will have to chop the fallen tree into controllable sizes, meaning the larger ones will cost more than the little ones.
The most original calculation is only for the body of the tree. That cost doesn’t entail carrying away the branches. You could have to pay more for that, depending on what tree care company you use. If the tree has big heavy limbs, then branch removal becomes more expensive as well.
Therefore, different types of fallen trees can cause an adjustment in price, for example, how a pine tree costs less to chop up and carry away than an oak. Location is all about easy access for the tree specialist. The harder it is to get to the fallen tree, and the amount of work needed to avoid any risk to the property will alter the cost.
After the fallen tree is removed, you have a stump. Stump removal is practically never included in the tree removal cost. The tree expert will need special equipment to remove your stump. Many trees have various levels of difficulty in their roots systems. Of course, younger trees have fewer roots than older ones. If there are utility lines overhead close to where the tree fell, make sure to contact the utility company before getting the tree removed. You don't want to accidentally cause the whole neighborhood to lose power and go black.
