How To Choose the Right Cicero Tree Service

When you're considering a tree removal company, you may look at factors like licensing and services offered. We highlight some of the most important considerations below.

Vet the Company's Qualifications

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

There aren't mandatory national certification for tree removal, but a company 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 employ one, but arborists provide many benefits due to their training in tree care, preservation, and maintenance.

Get Quotes From Multiple Companies

Homeowners should get quotes from multiple companies to compare elements of the quotes like service fees, timelines, and included services. 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) evaluates the possibility of tree failure. Your tree removal professional will visually inspect a tree and its branches to determine the risk of breakage. A TRA helps minimize the risk of harm to tree service workers and your property.

Talk to your tree removal company and ensure you have a TRA completed before undertaking any work. Certified arborists typically perform these assessments. Some companies include TRAs with services, while others charge an extra fee.

Ask About Stump Removal

Companies can remove stumps from your lawn by hand or using special equipment. Unattended stumps will rot and can attract disease or pests. Ask your tree removal company if stump removal is included with its service. Costs vary between $97 to $710, with the average Cicero homeowner paying approximately $452.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

The cost of tree removal services ranges from $440-$1,936, with an average cost of $903. Factors such as project size, tree health, and tree size and type can affect the final price. Emergency tree removal costs roughly $2,323, and any tree will incur additional fees if it has a higher failure risk or requires additional safety precautions, equipment, or labor. Your provider may charge by the acre instead of per tree if you're having multiple trees removed.
