How To Choose the Right Whittier Tree Service

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

Vet the Company's Qualifications

Your tree service provider should hold insurance to protect both customers and workers. These policies can include workers' compensation, general liability, or professional liability insurance. Make sure that the policy specifically mentions tree work coverage; otherwise, you might be liable for any injuries or damage that occur on your property.

Tree removal doesn't require a mandatory national certification, but companies may employ a certified arborist to handle 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 preservation, care, and maintenance.

Get Quotes From Multiple Companies

You should solicit quotes from more than one company to look for the best deal. This lets you compare elements of each quote like the included services, timelines, and service fees.

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

Make sure your tree removal company provides residential services. Residential tree service companies primarily work on private homeowner properties. They have fewer restrictions than commercial tree service companies, which work on commercial properties and therefore must obey 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).

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

Ask About Stump Removal

Many tree removal companies can remove stumps from your lawn, either by hand or with specialized equipment. This is important because unattended stumps will decay and attract pests and disease. Ask whether your tree removal company includes stump removal with its services. It typically costs from $90 to $660, with the typical Whittier homeowner paying roughly $420.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

Tree elimination services cost $409-$1,800, with an average cost of roughly $840. Several factors influence the price, like tree health, tree size and type, and project size. Emergency services cost more, running at around $2,160. If you remove multiple trees, the company may charge per acre instead of per tree. Your price may also increase if your trees have a higher failure risk and need additional safety precautions, equipment, or labor.
