  • M & T Friendly Tree Service
    They did an excellent job and I would definitely recommend them! They are very responsive and communicated quickly to any questions and concerns. They did a thorough good job and cleaned up everything afterwards.

  • Smart tree service
    I hired Smart Tree Service to cut down two large trees and to remove many high branches from several other trees that were growing too close to our house for a very competitive price. They had a large crew (5) and did a terrific job. They used ropes and pullies to guide the branched and tree trunks

  • Cut Knuckle Inc.
    Cut Knuckle Inc. is TOP NOTCH! Taylor and his crew were very professional, knowledgeable, polite, safe, and considerate of the property. They have the right equipment to do any job and they will make sure everything is back in place and cleaned up prior to leaving. I highly recommend this company

  • R&L Tree Service
    I contacted approximately 7 companies over 3 days to give estimates for what I thought was a bigger job, 14 trees: 11 huge pines, 3 medium hardwoods. Pete, with R&L, was the first to respond and show for an estimate. Their company was one of the only ones that actually puts the trees back into

  • Mr. Beaver Tree Service
    This team is outstanding! They are professional and extremely competent. They were on time, cordial and delivered services that were beyond expectation. This is the second time we worked with Oscar and his team and we highly recommend them. The guys went above and beyond and even used the tree

  • Arborex Tree Services
    Arborex did an amazing job! It was like watching a well oiled machine! We had 3 very large pines and a large oak tree removed. He came with a crew of about 10 and every guy knew exactly what they were supposed to do, at exactly the right time. 4 large trees and stumps were gone in less that 2

  • Arbormax Tree Service- Greensboro
    The first thing I noticed (and liked) about Arbormax was the line on their website: "Four Generations of Hugging and Caring for Trees". These folks aren't just "tree cutters". Their list of certifications and training was as impressive as their equipment inventory. They know about trees, not just
    Rowell G.
  • Skillin Tree Care, LLC
    I could not recommend Skillin Tree Care more highly! The crew was highly professional, friendly, accommodating, and Ron, in particular, had a great smile and sense of humor, which made the experience delightful! They removed a very large fallen Maple and took down a smaller one, along with a stump
    Karin T.
  • Lopez Tree Service
    Very polite and did an amazing job at cutting back my crepe myrtles. I would recommend him to anyone he also cleaned up and blew my entire driveway. Great job!

Tree Service FAQ

  1. How much does it cost to remove a tree?

    Answer: Typically, tree removal costs between $200 and $2,000. Tree removal costs vary widely based on the number of trees being removed, the height of each tree, the diameter of each tree trunk, and accessibility to the tree. Smaller trees are usually less expensive to remove than larger ones, as are those that are more easily accessible.

  2. Do you need a permit to cut down a tree?

    Answer: In many areas, you don’t need a permit to cut down a tree on your own private, residential property. But some municipalities may require tree removal permits for conservation purposes or to comply with local ordinances. When you hire a tree removal pro, they’ll be able to tell you whether you need a permit for your specific tree removal project.

  3. When is a good time to trim trees?

    Answer: In most regions, the best time to trim your trees is during the winter months. During the active growing season (spring through fall), trimming your trees can leave them more vulnerable to disease and less likely to thrive. During the winter months, when trees are dormant, trimming them will cause less stress and leave them ready to grow again in the spring.

  4. What is the average cost to cut a tree down?

    Answer: Tree removal costs between $200 and $2,000 per tree. Establishing an average cost can be difficult because each tree will be assessed and priced based on factors like height, trunk diameter, and accessibility. In general, smaller trees cost less to remove than larger trees, as do trees that are more accessible.

  5. How much does it cost to service a tree?

    Answer: The cost to service a tree is typically between $430 and $1,320. The cost to service a tree depends on several factors, including what exactly you’d like done, the tree’s height, its health, the location of the tree, and local labor costs. The national average cost for tree services is $865. Tree trimming isn’t necessary for all trees but can improve their health and longevity by encouraging new growth.

  6. What is the difference between tree trimming and pruning?

    Answer: While tree trimming and tree pruning might appear similar to the untrained eye, they serve different purposes. Tree pruning is used to thin a tree by removing unnecessary or burdensome branches. Tree trimming promotes healthy growth by trimming but not removing branches.
