How To Choose the Right Lakewood Tree Service

Below, we go over several important considerations for selecting a tree removal company. These include services, licensing, and more.

Vet the Company's Qualifications

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

Tree removal companies have no mandatory national certifications, but many employ arborists to perform inspections. Companies aren't required to have an arborist on staff, but having one brings in expert knowledge on tree preservation, maintenance, and care. Arborists are certified by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA).

Get Quotes From Multiple Companies

You can request quotes from multiple companies to find the best deals. Compare each aspect of your quote, such as included services, service fees, and timelines.

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

We recommend using a company that specializes in residential tree services. These companies have fewer locally -mandated service restrictions compared to 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 damage to your property. A tree service professional will visually inspect a tree and its branches to evaluate the risk of breaking (called tree failure).

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 ensure you have a TRA completed before starting work.

Ask About Stump Removal

Often, a tree removal company will include stump removal with its service. Removing stumps is important because neglected stumps can rot and may attract disease or pests. A professional tree removal company will remove stumps either with specialized equipment or by hand. This service costs from $95 to $697, with the average Lakewood homeowner paying about $443.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

On average, Arbor removal services cost around $887. The total price may range from $432-$1,900, and be influenced by factors such as tree size and type, tree health, and project size. Emergency services can cost roughly $2,280, and you'll pay more if a tree has a high failure risk or requires additional safety precautions, labor, or equipment. Tree removal companies may charge per acre instead of per tree if you're having multiple trees removed.
