How To Choose the Right Oak Park Tree Service

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

Vet the Company's Qualifications

Tree service companies should have insurance to protect their workers and customers. Examples of policies include professional liability, general liability, and workers' compensation insurance. The policies should mention tree work coverage specifically because otherwise, you could be held responsible for any injuries or damage on your property.

Tree removal doesn't need any mandatory national certifications, but some companies employ certified arborists to conduct inspections. Having one isn't a requirement, but an arborist brings in expert knowledge on tree care, maintenance, and preservation. Arborists are certified by the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA).

Get Quotes From Multiple Companies

We recommend sourcing quotes from multiple companies to help find the best deal. This allows you to compare things like service fees, timelines, and included services.

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

Make sure your tree removal company provides residential services. Residential 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. Assessing tree failure helps service companies figure out how to minimize the danger to workers and property.

Certified arborists are typically the ones to conduct TRAs. Some companies include a free assessment with their services, while others charge an additional fee. Request a TRA before undertaking any real work.

Ask About Stump Removal

Many tree removal companies can also handle stump removal, either with specialized equipment or by hand. This is important because neglected stumps will decay and attract disease and pests. Ask whether your tree removal company includes stump removal as a part of its services. It typically costs from $117 to $859, with the average Oak Park homeowner paying approximately $547.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

Tree clearing services cost an average of $1,093, with a range of $533-$2,343. Factors that may influence this cost include tree size and type, project size, and tree health. You may pay by acre instead of per tree if you're removing multiple trees. You can expect to pay roughly $2,812 for emergency tree removal. The price will also increase if your tress have high failure risk or require additional safety precautions, labor, or equipment.
