How To Choose the Right Skokie Tree Service

Below, we describe several important factors for choosing a tree removal company. These include services, licensing, and more.

Vet the Company's Qualifications

Insurance is important for protecting both tree removal workers and customers. These policies might include workers' compensation, professional liability, or general liability insurance. Make sure that the policy specifically mentions tree work coverage. Otherwise, you might be held responsible for damage or injury that occurs on your property.

There are no mandatory national certifications for tree removal, but a company might have a certified arborist on staff to complete inspections. Having an arborist isn't required, but it 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

You can request quotes from multiple companies. This lets you compare aspects such as included services, service fees, and timelines to find the best deal.

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

We recommend looking for a company that specializes in residential tree services. These companies have fewer 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) helps minimize the risk of harm to workers or damage to your property. During this process, your tree service professional will visually inspect a tree and its branches to determine the risk of breakage (called tree failure).

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 undertaking any 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 pests or disease. A professional tree removal company will remove stumps either by hand or using specialized equipment. This service costs from $110 to $809, with the typical Skokie homeowner paying about $515.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

The cost of tree removal falls between $502 and $2,207, averaging of $1,030. Things like tree health, tree size and type, and project size will affect the total price. Emergency tree removal costs roughly $2,648, and any tree will incur additional fees if it has a higher failure risk or requires additional safety precautions, equipment, or labor. Companies may charge by the acre instead of per tree if you're having multiple trees removed.
