How To Choose the Right Glendale Tree Service

It's important to check for certain criteria, such as services and licenses, when comparing tree removal companies. We go over some key considerations below.

Vet the Company's Qualifications

Tree service companies should have insurance, such as general liability, professional liability, and workers' compensation insurance. These policies protect both workers and customers. Policies should specifically mention tree work coverage, because otherwise you can be held responsible for injuries and damage on your property.

Tree removal doesn't require any mandatory national certifications. However, companies might have a certified arborist on staff to conduct inspections. Arborists learn proper preservation, care, and maintenance techniques to protect tree health. These specialists have earned voluntary certifications through the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). Although having a certified arborist is not a requirement, it's an added benefit.

Get Quotes From Multiple Companies

We recommend sourcing quotes from several companies to help determine the best deal. This way, you can compare things like service fees, included services, and timelines.

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

We recommend seeking out a company that specializes in residential tree 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 the start of work helps protect both workers and your property.

TRAs are typically performed by certified arborists. Sometimes there's an additional feel involved, while other times the assessment is included for free with services. Speak with your tree removal company and ensure you have a TRA completed before beginning work.

Ask About Stump Removal

Stump removal involves eliminating stumps from your yard with special equipment or by hand. This is important because neglected stumps will rot over time and might attract pests or become diseased. Check with potential companies to verify stump removal is included with their service. Costs range from $86 to $633, with the typical Glendale homeowner paying around $403.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

The cost of tree removal services falls between $392 and $1,725, with an average cost of $805. Factors like tree size and type, tree health, and project size may influence the final price. Emergency tree removal costs about $2,070, and any tree will incur additional fees if it has a higher failure risk or requires additional labor, safety precautions, or equipment. A company may charge by the acre instead of per tree if you're having multiple trees removed.
