How To Choose the Right Redwood City Tree Service

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

Vet the Company's Qualifications

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

There aren't mandatory national certification for tree removal, but a company might employ a certified arborist to conduct inspections. An arborist is a specialist who's 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 maintenance, care, and preservation.

Get Quotes From Multiple Companies

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

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

We recommend employing a tree removal company that specializes in residential services. These companies have fewer locally -mandated service restrictions compared to commercial companies, which must 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 assess the risk of breakage (called tree failure).

Speak with your tree removal service provider and make sure a TRA is completed before undertaking any work. These assessments are typically conducted by certified arborists. Some companies offer TRAs for free, while others charge an additional fee.

Ask About Stump Removal

Many tree removal companies can also remove stumps, either by hand or with specialized equipment. This is important because neglected stumps will decompose and attract pests and disease. Ask whether your tree removal company includes stump removal as a part of its services. It typically costs from $100 to $733, with the typical Redwood City homeowner paying about $466.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

On average, Arbor removal services cost roughly $933. Your final cost might range from $454-$1,999, and be influenced by factors like tree health, project size, and tree size and type. Emergency services may cost about $2,399, and you'll pay more if a tree has a high failure risk or needs additional labor, safety precautions, or equipment. Tree removal companies may charge per acre instead of per tree if you're having multiple trees removed.
