How To Choose the Right Palos Tree Service

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

Vet the Company's Qualifications

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

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

Get Quotes From Multiple Companies

You should get quotes from multiple companies to find the best deal. This lets you compare elements of each quote like the service fees, timelines, and included services.

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

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

Request a Tree Risk Assessment

A tree risk assessment (TRA) assesses for tree failure. A tree removal professional will visually inspect a tree to determine the risk of the tree or its branches breaking. A TRA helps minimize the risk of harm to workers and property.

Certified arborists are typically the ones to conduct TRAs. 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 beginning work.

Ask About Stump Removal

Find out if your tree removal company includes stump removal with its service. Removing stumps is important because neglected stumps can rot and may attract disease or pests. A professional tree removal company will remove your stump either by hand or using specialized equipment. This service costs from $106 to $775, with the typical Palos homeowner paying approximately $493.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

The cost of tree removal falls between $481 and $2,114, averaging of $987. Factors like tree health, tree size and type, and project size can affect the final price. Emergency tree removal costs roughly $2,537, and you'll incur additional fees if a tree has a higher failure risk or requires additional equipment, labor, or safety precautions. A company may charge per acre instead of per tree if you're having multiple trees removed.
