How To Choose the Right Cedar Falls Tree Service

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

Vet the Company's Qualifications

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

There are no mandatory national certification for tree removal. However, a company may have a certified arborist on staff to conduct inspections. Arborists learn proper care, maintenance, and preservation techniques to protect tree health. These specialists have earned voluntary certifications through the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). Having a certified arborist on staff is an added benefit, though not required.

Get Quotes From Multiple Companies

You should get quotes from more than one company to find the best deal. This lets you compare elements of each quote, such as the timelines, included services, and service fees.

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

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

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).

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

Ask About Stump Removal

It's important to remove tree stumps because if left unattended they can attract disease and pests. Ask if your tree removal company includes stump removal with its services. The company will remove stumps either by hand or with specialized equipment. This service costs from $67 to $494, with the average Cedar Falls homeowner paying roughly $314.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

The cost of tree removal ranges from $306-$1,346, averaging of $628. Things like tree health, tree size and type, and project size can influence the final price. Emergency tree removal costs about $1,615, and any tree will incur additional fees if it has a higher failure risk or requires additional labor, safety precautions, or equipment. A company may charge by the acre instead of per tree if you're having multiple trees removed.
