How To Choose the Right Aliso Viejo Tree Service

When considering a tree removal company, you may look at factors like services and licensing. We highlight some of the most important considerations below.

Vet the Company's Qualifications

Make sure that your tree service provider has insurance, including professional liability, workers' compensation, and general liability insurance. Insurance serves to protect both customers and workers. They should specifically mention tree work coverage as otherwise, you may be liable for any injuries or damage on your property.

There are no mandatory national certifications for tree removal, but companies can have certified arborists on their staff to perform inspections. This isn't required but does provide added benefits. Arborists are certified by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). They learn proper preservation, care, and maintenance techniques to protect tree health.

Get Quotes From Multiple Companies

Homeowners should obtain quotes from several companies to compare elements of the quotes like included services, service fees, and timelines. This helps you find the best deal.

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

We recommend hiring a tree removal company that specializes in residential services. These companies have fewer locally -mandated service restrictions than commercial companies, which are required to follow certain local ordinances.

Request a Tree Risk Assessment

A tree risk assessment (TRA) involves visually inspecting a tree to determine the risk of it or its branches breaking. This is called tree failure. Evaluating tree failure before starting work helps protect both workers and your property.

Speak with your tree removal service provider and make sure a TRA is completed before work begins. Certified arborists typically perform these assessments. Some companies include TRAs with services, while others charge an extra fee.

Ask About Stump Removal

Many tree removal companies can also handle stump removal, either by hand or with specialized equipment. This is important because neglected stumps can rot and attract pests and disease. Ask your tree removal company if it includes stump removal as a part of its services. It typically costs from $100 to $736, with the typical Aliso Viejo homeowner paying about $468.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

You can expect to pay an average of $937 for tree removal. Costs will vary from $456-$2,007 and are affected by factors such as tree size and type, tree health, and project size. Companies may charge per acre instead of per tree if multiple trees need to be removed. You'll pay more if a tree has a high failure risk or requires additional equipment, labor, or safety precautions. Expect to pay around $2,408 for emergency tree removal.
