How To Choose the Right Arlington Heights Tree Service

Below, we describe several important factors 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 general liability, workers' compensation, or professional liability insurance. Verify that the policy specifically mentions tree work coverage, as otherwise you might be held responsible for damage or injury that occurs on your property.

Tree removal doesn't need any mandatory national certifications, but some companies employ certified arborists to perform inspections. Having one isn't a requirement, but an arborist provides the added benefit of expert training in tree preservation, care, and maintenance. Arborists have earned voluntary certification through the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA).

Get Quotes From Multiple Companies

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

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

Look for tree removal companies that specialize in residential services. Commercial companies handle large-scale projects for commercial property and must follow certain city ordinances for their work. Residential tree service companies specialize in private homeowner work and have fewer locally mandated restrictions.

Request a Tree Risk Assessment

A tree risk assessment (TRA) helps minimize the risk of harm to workers or damage to your property. Your tree service professional will visually inspect a tree and its branches to evaluate the risk of breaking (called tree failure).

Some companies offer TRAs for free with their services, while others charge an additional fee. A certified arborist typically performs these assessments. Speak with your tree removal company and ensure an assessment is completed before work starts.

Ask About Stump Removal

Companies can remove stumps from your lawn by hand or using special equipment. Left neglected, stumps will decay over time and can attract pests and disease. Ask your tree removal company if it includes stump removal in its service. Costs vary between $117 to $855, with the average Arlington Heights homeowner paying roughly $544.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

You can expect to spend an average of $1,089 for tree removal services. Costs will range between $530-$2,333 and are influenced by factors such as tree size and type, tree health, and project size. A company might charge per acre instead of per tree if multiple trees need to be removed. Services will cost more if a tree has a high failure risk or requires additional safety precautions, equipment, or labor. Expect to pay about $2,800 for emergency tree removal.
