How To Choose the Right Sarasota Tree Service

Factors like services and licensing are important to consider when choosing a tree removal company. We've highlighted some key factors below.

Vet the Company's Qualifications

Make sure that your tree service provider holds the needed insurance policies, like workers' compensation, general liability, and professional liability insurance. Insurance serves to protect both workers and customers. They should specifically mention tree work coverage as otherwise, you may be liable for any injuries or 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 have learned proper maintenance, care, and preservation 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 requesting quotes from more than one company. This lets you compare aspects such as timelines, service fees, and included services to find the best deal.

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

We recommend seeking out a company that specializes in residential tree services. Residential tree service 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) assesses for tree failure. A tree removal professional will visually inspect a tree to determine the risk of the tree or its branches breaking. A TRA helps minimize the risk of damage to your property or harm to workers.

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

Ask About Stump Removal

Ask your tree removal company if stump removal is included with its service. Removing stumps is important because stumps left unattended will rot and may attract disease or pests. A professional tree removal company will remove your stump either by hand or using specialized equipment. This service costs from $57 to $422, with the typical Sarasota homeowner paying about $268.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

The cost of tree removal ranges from $261-$1,150, with an average cost of $536. Factors such as tree size and type, project size, and tree health may influence the final price. Emergency tree removal costs about $1,380, and any tree will incur additional fees if it has a higher failure risk or requires additional equipment, safety precautions, or labor. A company may charge by the acre instead of per tree if you're having multiple trees removed.
