How To Choose the Right Champaign City Tree Service

Factors such as services and licensing are important to consider when choosing a tree removal company. We describe several of these key factors below.

Vet the Company's Qualifications

Tree service companies should have insurance policies protecting their customers and workers. Some examples of policies include general liability, workers' compensation, and professional liability insurance. The policies should specifically mention tree work coverage because otherwise, you may be liable for any injuries or damage on your property.

There are no mandatory national certifications for tree removal, but a company might have a certified arborist on staff to perform inspections. Having an arborist isn't required, but it does provide added benefits. Arborists are certified by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). They're the experts in proper care, maintenance, and preservation techniques to protect tree health.

Get Quotes From Multiple Companies

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

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

Look for tree removal companies that specialize in residential tree care. These companies are less likely to have locally mandated service restrictions than commercial companies, which are required to follow certain local ordinances.

Request a Tree Risk Assessment

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

Talk to your tree removal service provider and ensure you have a TRA completed before beginning work. Certified arborists typically perform these assessments. Some companies offer TRAs for free, while others charge an extra 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 can decompose and attract disease and pests. Ask your tree removal company if it includes stump removal with its services. It typically costs from $97 to $712, with the average Champaign City homeowner paying roughly $453.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

Arbor elimination services cost $441-$1,941, with an average cost of around $906. Several factors influence the price, like tree health, tree size and type, and project size. Emergency services cost more, running at around $2,329. If multiple trees need to be removed, companies may charge by acre. The price may also increase if the trees have a higher failure risk and necessitate additional labor, equipment, or safety precautions.
