How To Choose the Right Downers Grove Tree Service

It's important to check for certain criteria when comparing tree removal companies, such as services and licensing. We've highlighted key factors below.

Vet the Company's Qualifications

Verify that your tree service provider has insurance, including professional liability, workers' compensation, and general liability insurance. These policies serve to protect both customers and workers. Your company's policy should specifically mention tree work coverage. Otherwise, you may be liable for any injuries or damage on your property.

Tree removal doesn't require any mandatory national certifications. However, a company may have a certified arborist on staff to perform inspections. Arborists have learned proper maintenance, preservation, and care techniques to protect the tree's health. These specialists have received 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

You should request quotes from a handful of companies to find the best deal. This lets you compare aspects of each quote, such as the included services, service fees, and timelines.

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

Make sure your tree removal company provides residential services. Residential tree service companies primarily service private homeowner properties and have fewer restrictions than commercial companies. Commercial companies work on commercial properties and therefore have to obey certain local ordinances.

Request a Tree Risk Assessment

A tree risk assessment (TRA) is a visual inspection to determine the likelihood of a tree or its branches breaking. This is called tree failure. Evaluating tree failure helps service companies figure out the best ways to minimize the danger to their workers and your property.

Speak with your tree removal service provider and make sure a TRA is completed before work begins. These assessments are typically conducted by certified arborists. Some companies include TRAs with services, while others charge an extra fee.

Ask About Stump Removal

Companies can remove stumps by hand or using special equipment. Left neglected, stumps will rot over time and can attract disease or pests. Ask your tree removal company if stump removal is included with its service. Costs vary between $115 to $842, with the typical Downers Grove homeowner paying around $536.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

Tree elimination services cost $522-$2,295, with an average cost of around $1,071. Several factors influence the price, such as tree health, project size, and tree size and type. Emergency services cost more, running at around $2,754. If you remove multiple trees, the company may charge per acre instead of per tree. The price may also increase if your trees have a higher failure risk and necessitate additional safety precautions, labor, or equipment.
