How To Choose the Right Fresno Tree Service

When comparing tree removal companies, it's important to check for certain criteria, such as services and licenses. We highlight key factors below.

Vet the Company's Qualifications

Insurance is important for protecting both tree removal customers and workers. These policies can include general liability, professional liability, or workers' compensation insurance. Be sure that the policy mentions tree work coverage specifically; otherwise, you might be liable for any injuries or damage that occur on your property.

Tree removal has no mandatory national certifications, but companies might have certified arborists on their staff to complete inspections. Having an arborist isn't required, but it does provide added benefits. Arborists are certified by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). They learn proper maintenance, preservation, and care techniques to protect tree health.

Get Quotes From Multiple Companies

We recommend requesting quotes from multiple companies. This lets you compare aspects such as timelines, service fees, and included services to find the best deal.

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

Look for tree removal companies that specialize in residential services. These companies are less likely to have city-mandated service restrictions than commercial companies, which must follow certain city ordinances for their work.

Request a Tree Risk Assessment

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

Certified arborists are typically the ones to conduct TRAs. Sometimes these services are offered for free, while other times, there's an additional fee. Contact your tree removal company and make sure you have a TRA completed before starting work.

Ask About Stump Removal

Tree stump removal is important because neglected stumps can attract disease and pests. Ask if your tree removal company includes stump removal with its services. A professional will remove stumps either by hand or with specialized equipment. This service costs from $81 to $592, with the average Fresno homeowner paying roughly $377.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

The cost of tree removal ranges from $367-$1,614, averaging of $753. Factors such as tree health, project size, and tree size and type can influence the total price. Emergency tree removal costs around $1,937, and any tree will incur additional fees if it has a higher failure risk or requires additional safety precautions, equipment, or labor. Companies may charge by the acre instead of per tree if you're having multiple trees removed.
