Tree surgeons are specialists in handling the removal of large or cumbersome tree branches. Their primary mission is to allow healthy growth.
Do you have a really old (and most likely large) tree? While many people may attempt to handle large trees by themselves, it can be dangerous if you make a critical mistake. We mean dangerous to both your body and health, and dangerous for the prolonged health of the tree. Therefore, such jobs are best left to professionals.
Tree surgeons prune and manage trees in a professional manner. They can control trees that threaten foundations and trim dangerous branches that are threatening nearby power lines or surrounding roads. They also chop up felled limbs into usable firewood and handle emergency removal requests.
Removing a tree is expensive. Most homeowners spend an average of $1,264 for tree removal. Prices can vary between $1,050-$1,450.
Removing a tree is the most costly service you will incur with regards to tree management. Most charge according to the height of the tree. The cost varies per foot, with taller trees incurring around $15 per foot to remove. Smaller trees often cost about $9 per foot to remove.
If your tree is located near power lines or in an area that is difficult to access, the removal cost may be higher. In such cases, you may be able to save on expenses by having the tree pruned instead.
Pruning with a surgeon however (at an average cost of $450) can remove dangerous branches and reduce the risk a tree may pose.
Also remember tree disposal costs. For example, homeowners often pay an extra $50 to have leftovers such as branches and tree trunks removed from the property.
