How much does tree removal cost?

To be honest, it’s challenging to give a direct answer to this question until we can see your tree and your property first. This is exactly why we’ll visit you for free to give you an accurate quote! The most important points to consider are the size of the tree, its location in your yard, and the degree of difficulty that we’ll face in removing it.

Some of the most challenging tree removal projects require using more advanced equipment, more workers, and more hours of labor, all of which heavily influences the price.

Think about the enormous range of potential variables we face when you consider the difference between a 10 foot tall aspen tree growing in your front yard with nothing else near it, versus a 100 foot tall American Elm spanning multiple properties with branches dangling precariously over power lines, roofs, and other personal property.  In this example the removal cost for the Aspen could be as low as $50 while the Elm could cost as much as $10,000. 

Do I need a permit to remove a tree?

Depending on the town/city in which you live, as well as the location of the tree, you may need a permit.  Generally, trees located within the city ‘right of way’ require permitting. However, we handle all of the permitting legwork ourselves.  We will determine if a permit is needed, contact the appropriate city forester, request the permit, and not perform any work until the permit is issued. It’s imperative that these procedures are followed as our reputation with the local cities and towns is very important to us.

What is involved in the tree removal process?

Depending on the size of the tree any number of variables may be involved.  

A large complicated technical job may require a crane, bucket trucks, wood chippers, street closures, permitting, and traffic control.  Additional heavy equipment like grapples, heavy lifting machinery, or a special compact lift may be needed as well as a variety of chainsaws, ropes, pulleys, muscle, experience and the expertise which can be found at Bailey Tree LLC.

Is it okay to remove trees close to the house?

Yes, it is okay to remove trees close to the house, and this is often recommended.  Trees move in the wind and they get thicker as time goes on. Eventually they can do damage to the house if not addressed.

How do I know if I should remove a tree?

Obvious indicators that a tree should be removed include: the tree is dead, the tree is suddenly leaning in a new direction, the tree is too close to home and of a species destined to be quite large, you received a citation from the city to remove the tree, or you just really don’t like the tree.
