How To Choose the Right Brookline Tree Service

Factors like services and licensing are important to consider when choosing a tree removal company. We've highlighted some key factors below.

Vet the Company's Qualifications

Tree service companies should have insurance policies protecting their workers and customers. Some examples of policies include general liability, workers' compensation, and professional liability insurance. The policies should specifically mention tree work coverage otherwise, you may be liable for any damage or injuries that occur on your property.

Tree removal companies don't need any mandatory national certifications, but may employ a certified arborist to handle inspections. Arborists are specialists who have earned voluntary certifications from the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). Companies aren't required to have one on staff, but arborists provide the added benefit of training in tree care, maintenance, and preservation.

Get Quotes From Multiple Companies

It's a good idea to request quotes from multiple companies. This lets you compare aspects such as service fees, timelines, and included services to find the best deal.

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

Look for a tree removal company that specializes in residential tree care. These companies are less likely to have locally mandated service restrictions than commercial companies, which must follow certain local ordinances for their work.

Request a Tree Risk Assessment

A tree risk assessment (TRA) involves visually inspecting a tree to assess the risk of the tree or its branches breaking. This is called tree failure. Evaluating tree failure before beginning work helps protect both workers and your property.

TRAs are typically conducted 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 make sure you have a TRA completed before starting work.

Ask About Stump Removal

Companies can remove stumps with special equipment or by hand. Neglected stumps will decay and can attract disease or pests. Ask your tree removal company if stump removal is included with its service. Costs vary between $125 to $917, with the average Brookline homeowner paying approximately $584.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

Tree removal services cost, on average, $1,167, with a range of $569-$2,501. Factors that might influence the cost include project size, tree size and type, and tree health. Companies may charge by acre instead of per tree if you're removing multiple trees, and you can expect to pay roughly $3,001 for emergency tree removal services. The price will also increase if your tress have high failure risk or require additional labor, equipment, or safety precautions.
