How To Choose the Right Calumet City Tree Service

When comparing tree removal companies, it's important to check for certain criteria, such as services and licenses. We go over some key considerations below.

Vet the Company's Qualifications

The tree service company you choose should have insurance, including general liability, workers' compensation, and professional liability insurance. These policies protect both customers and workers. Policies should mention tree work coverage specifically, because otherwise you might be held responsible for injuries and damage that occur on your property.

There aren't mandatory national certification for tree removal, but a company might employ a certified arborist to perform inspections. An arborist is a specialist who's earned voluntary certifications from the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). Companies aren't required to employ one, but arborists provide many benefits due to their training in tree maintenance, care, and preservation.

Get Quotes From Multiple Companies

Homeowners should request quotes from a handful of companies to compare elements of the quotes like service fees, included services, and timelines. This helps you find the best deal.

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

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

Request a Tree Risk Assessment

A tree risk assessment (TRA) involves visually inspecting a tree to evaluate the risk of the tree or its branches breaking. This is called tree failure. Assessing tree failure before starting work helps protect both tree service workers and your property.

Certified arborists typically conduct TRAs. Sometimes there's an additional feel involved, while other times the assessment is included for free with services. Contact your tree removal company and make sure you have a TRA completed before beginning work.

Ask About Stump Removal

Companies can remove stumps from your lawn with special equipment or by hand. Left neglected, stumps will rot and can attract pests and disease. Ask your tree removal company if it includes stump removal in its service. Costs vary between $96 to $706, with the typical Calumet City homeowner paying roughly $449.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

The cost of tree removal services ranges from $438-$1,926, with an average cost of $899. Factors such as tree size and type, project size, and tree health can affect the final price. Emergency tree removal costs roughly $2,311, and you'll incur additional fees if a tree has a higher failure risk or requires additional equipment, safety precautions, or labor. Your provider may charge by the acre instead of per tree if you're having multiple trees removed.
