How To Choose the Right Ypsilanti Tree Service

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

Vet the Company's Qualifications

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

Tree removal doesn't require any mandatory national certifications. However, companies might have a certified arborist on staff to conduct inspections. Arborists have learned proper maintenance, care, and preservation techniques to protect tree health. These specialists have gotten 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 can request quotes from multiple companies to find the best deals. Compare each aspect of your quote, such as timelines, service fees, and included services.

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

We recommend seeking out a company that specializes in residential tree services. Residential tree 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) is a visual inspection to determine the likelihood of a tree or its branches breaking. This is called tree failure. Evaluating tree failure helps service companies determine how best to minimize the danger to workers and property.

Certified arborists typically conduct TRAs. Sometimes there's an additional feel involved, while other times the assessment is included for free with services. Contact your tree removal company and make sure you have a TRA completed before beginning work.

Ask About Stump Removal

Many tree removal companies can also remove stumps, either by hand or with specialized equipment. This is important because neglected stumps can rot and attract pests and disease. Ask whether your tree removal company includes stump removal as a part of its services. It typically costs from $72 to $527, with the typical Ypsilanti homeowner paying about $336.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

You can expect to pay an average of $671 for tree removal services. Costs can range between $327-$1,438 and are impacted by things like tree size and type, tree health, and project size. A company might charge per acre instead of per tree if multiple trees need to be removed. The price will be higher if a tree has a high failure risk or requires additional equipment, safety precautions, or labor. You can expect to pay about $1,726 for emergency tree removal.
