How To Choose the Right Elgin Tree Service

Factors like licensing and services offered are important considerations when choosing a tree removal company. We go over several key factors below.

Vet the Company's Qualifications

Insurance is important for protecting both tree removal workers and customers. These policies may include professional liability, general liability, or workers' compensation insurance. Be sure that the policy mentions tree work coverage specifically; otherwise, you may be liable for any injuries or damage that occur on your property.

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

Get Quotes From Multiple Companies

We recommend requesting quotes from multiple companies to discover the best deals. Compare each aspect of your quote, such as service fees, included services, and timelines.

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

A residential tree removal company will have fewer restrictions than a commercial one. Commercial tree companies work on large commercial projects and therefore must follow certain local ordinances. This is why we recommend looking for a company that specializes in residential tree services.

Request a Tree Risk Assessment

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

TRAs are typically done by certified arborists. Sometimes these services are offered for free, while other times, there's an additional fee. Talk to your tree removal company and ensure you have a TRA completed before starting work.

Ask About Stump Removal

Companies can remove stumps from your lawn by hand or using special equipment. Left neglected, stumps will decompose and can attract pests and disease. Ask your tree removal company if it includes stump removal in its service. Costs vary between $107 to $786, with the typical Elgin homeowner paying roughly $500.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

On average, Tree elimination services cost roughly $1,001. The total price might range from $488-$2,144, and be impacted by factors like project size, tree size and type, and tree health. Emergency services cost around $2,573, and any price will be higher if a tree has a high failure risk or requires additional equipment, labor, or safety precautions. A tree removal company may charge by the acre instead of per tree if you're having multiple trees removed.
