How To Choose the Right Fullerton Tree Service

Factors like services and licensing are important considerations for choosing a tree removal company. We highlight some key factors below.

Vet the Company's Qualifications

Tree service companies should have insurance policies protecting their customers and workers. Some examples of policies include professional liability, general liability, and workers' compensation insurance. The policies should specifically mention tree work coverage because otherwise, you might be responsible for any injuries or damage on your property.

There are no mandatory national certifications for tree removal, but companies may 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're trained in proper care, maintenance, and preservation techniques to protect tree health.

Get Quotes From Multiple Companies

You should get quotes from multiple companies to look for the best deal. You can compare aspects of each quote like the service fees, timelines, and included services.

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

Look for a tree removal company that provides residential services. Residential service companies mainly service private homeowner properties and have fewer restrictions than commercial companies. Commercial companies work on commercial property and therefore must obey certain local ordinances.

Request a Tree Risk Assessment

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

Certified arborists typically conduct TRAs. Some companies include a free assessment with their services, while others charge an additional fee. Request a TRA before undertaking any real work.

Ask About Stump Removal

It's important to remove tree stumps because if left unattended they can rot and attract pests and disease. Ask your tree removal company if it includes stump removal with its services. A professional will remove stumps either with specialized equipment or by hand. This service costs from $90 to $660, with the typical Fullerton homeowner paying approximately $420.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

You can expect to spend an average of $839 for tree removal. Costs can range between $409-$1,799 and are impacted by things like tree size and type, project size, and tree health. You may pay 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 labor, equipment, or safety precautions. You can expect to pay around $2,159 for emergency tree removal.
