How To Choose the Right Reno Tree Service

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

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 because otherwise, you might be responsible for any injuries or damage on your property.

There aren't mandatory national certification for tree removal, but a company might employ a certified arborist to conduct inspections. An arborist is a specialist who's earned voluntary certifications from the International Society of Arboriculture (ISA). Companies aren't required to employ one, but arborists provide the added benefit of training in tree preservation, care, and maintenance.

Get Quotes From Multiple Companies

We recommend getting quotes from several companies to help determine the best deal. This allows you to compare things like timelines, included services, and service fees.

Confirm the Company Performs Residential Tree Services

Look for a tree removal company that specializes in residential services. Commercial companies handle large-scale projects for commercial property and must follow certain city ordinances for their work. Residential companies specialize in private homeowner work and have fewer city-mandated restrictions.

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. Assessing tree failure helps service companies decide how best to minimize the danger to their workers and your property.

Speak with your tree removal company and make sure a TRA is completed before undertaking any work. These assessments are typically performed by certified arborists. Some companies include TRAs with services, while others charge an extra fee.

Ask About Stump Removal

Companies can remove stumps from your lawn with special equipment or by hand. Left neglected, stumps will decay over time and can attract disease or pests. Ask your tree removal company if it includes stump removal in its service. Costs vary between $85 to $625, with the typical Reno homeowner paying about $398.

How Much Does It Cost To Remove A Tree?

Tree removal services cost an average of $796, with a range of $388-$1,705. Factors that might influence this price include project size, tree size and type, and tree health. You may pay by acre instead of per tree if multiple trees need to be removed, and you can expect to pay around $2,046 for emergency tree removal. You may also pay a higher price if a tree has a high failure risk or requires additional safety precautions, labor, or equipment.
