How To Choose the Right Altadena Tree Service

Below, we describe several important factors for looking for a tree removal company. These include licensing, services offered, and more.

Vet the Company's Qualifications

Insurance is important for protecting both tree removal customers and workers. These policies may include workers' compensation, professional liability, or general liability insurance. Make sure that the policy mentions tree work coverage specifically, as otherwise you may be liable for damage or injury that occurs on your property.

There aren't mandatory national certification for tree removal, but a company may employ a certified arborist to handle inspections. Arborists are specialists who have earned voluntary certifications from the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). Companies aren't required to have one on staff, but arborists provide many benefits due to their training in tree care, maintenance, and preservation.

Get Quotes From Multiple Companies

We recommend requesting quotes from multiple companies to discover the best deals. Compare each aspect of your quote, like timelines, included services, and service fees.

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

We recommend using a tree removal company that specializes in residential services. Residential tree 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) helps minimize the risk of harm to workers or property. During this process, your tree service professional will visually inspect a tree and its branches to determine the risk of breaking, also called tree failure.

Talk to your tree removal service provider and ensure you have a TRA completed before work begins. Certified arborists typically conduct these assessments. Some companies offer TRAs for free, while others charge an additional fee.

Ask About Stump Removal

Companies can remove stumps from your lawn with special equipment or by hand. Neglected stumps will rot over time and can attract pests and disease. Ask your tree removal company if stump removal is included with its service. Costs vary between $97 to $708, with the average Altadena homeowner paying roughly $451.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

Tree elimination services cost $439-$1,932, with an average cost closer to $902. Several factors impact final costs, like tree size and type, tree health, and project size. You'll pay more for emergency services, with costs around $2,318. If multiple trees need to be removed, companies may charge by acre. Your price might also increase if the trees have a higher failure risk and need additional labor, safety precautions, or equipment.
